If you’ve read any media over the last few weeks, no doubt you’ve read a lot about electric vehicles too; seems like electric is well and truly on the news agenda at present.
As you’d imagine, we're paying very close attention to it, and reading all sorts of stuff about EVs that – in truth – we don’t recognise.
Like the batteries not lasting, even though most manufacturers have a good length warranty on the batteries and that they last between 10-20 years.
Or that they don’t have very good range, even though there are vehicles now that offer close to 500 miles on a single charge.
You get the point – there’s a lot of misinformation out there, which – if used incorrectly – can result in fleet managers making bad decisions.
Here’s the reality: we’re helping our customers secure A LOT of EVs at the moment, and have done for quite some time now, and I genuinely can’t think of a single customer that’s unhappy with their decision.
They like the road tax relief, they like the environmental side of things, they like the salary sacrifice element, they like it all.
Yes, electric is an adjustment, but regardless of the short-term politics, it looks to be an adjustment that we’re all going to have to make.
The only question is whether you’re late to the party, and miss out on the early adopter benefits.
