EVs for employees as Go Ultra Low reveals environmental priorities

Employees reckon electric vehicles (EVs) can play a key role in companies improving their environmental credentials, according to a study by Go Ultra Low.

The joint government and industry campaign to promote EVs has found that 70% of those employees surveyed consider their employers should consider offering electric vehicles as company cars.

Almost two thirds (63%) would be happy to drive an electric car, with the main benefits being reduced running costs (60%) and environmental factors (53%).

With recent changes to Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rates, employees could save thousands of pounds by driving an EV compared to a conventional petrol or diesel model.

Go Ultra Low surveyed 2,000 UK professionals, who also said that 69% of them are keen for their companies to be more environmentally friendly, 33% of them would like on-site EV charge points, and 31% would like to see EV pool or company cars on the fleet.

For more information on cost savings possible with BIK rates, visit our Company Car Tax microsite, or use the Company Car Tax Calculator to compare two different models.
