All businesses, big and small, are going to need to make the switch to electric vehicles in the coming decade.
With so many new things to take into consideration when purchasing electric vehicles, from charging and range to battery life and running costs, making the right choice for your business can feel like a huge challenge. It doesn’t have to be.
At IA we can help you through the process. We offer a range of EV products, and our knowledgeable team can help you find the best fit for your business needs.
There are numerous benefits to switching your business to electric vehicles. In addition to lower total cost of ownership and reduced carbon emissions, you will boost your green credentials, something customers increasingly look for when making purchasing decisions.
There are significant savings to be made in the cost of charging an electric van versus refuelling a petrol or diesel van. Charging your vehicle is considerably cheaper than refuelling, and, as there are fewer moving parts in an EV than a standard internal combustion engine, servicing costs less.
Electric vehicles also help you save if you’re regularly driving in Ultra Low EmissionsZone (ULEZ) or any of the new Clean Air and Low Emission Zones now live and being proposed across the UK. For instance, it could cost up to £375 per month to drive daily in London’s ULEZ area, whereas our fully electric van is exempt from this charge.
Several schemes are available to make the switch to electric more viable for businesses. The Government’s Plug-In Van Grant, applicable our electric vans, contributes 35% of the purchase price up to £5,000.
