THE BENEFITS OF ELECTRIC VAN HIRE
Considering electric commercial vans for your business? eLCVs are an environmentally friendly and cost-saving alternative to ICE vehicles to help you meet sustainability goals and improve cashflow.
A GREENER BUSINESS
Electric vans produce zero direct emissions, which can help limit your business's carbon footprint, reduce air pollution, and improve air quality in the environment. You can reduce your indirect emissions by charging your EV through a renewable source, such as wind or solar power, to be closer to a net-zero emissions fleet.
LESS MAINTENANCE HASSLE
Electric commercial vans can have lower maintenance costs as they have fewer moving parts and less wear and tear of components. This reliability of electric vehicles is a significant benefit to businesses to reduce vehicle downtime, operational costs, and outgoings to improve cash flow.
CLEAN AIR ZONES & ULEZ COMPLIANT
Electric vehicles in the UK are exempt from CAZ charges helping you save money when driving through urban areas and save time and hassle. In London, vehicles that are not Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) exempt and fail to meet the ULEZ emission standards must pay a £12.50 daily charge to drive inside the zone.
LONG TERM MONEY SAVING
Electric vehicles in the UK are exempt from paying any road tax, allowing you to allocate more funds to your monthly business operations and saving you a significant amount over time. Additionally, charging with electricity can be cheaper than fuelling with petrol or diesel with several government grants and EV tariffs at your disposal.
