UK: Electric Vehicles (EVs) can be commercially viable to business fleets according to report

Electric vehicles (EVs) can be commercially viable in business fleets today; states a new report published today by The Climate Group in collaboration with Energy Saving Trust and Cenex and with support from TFL and TNT’s “Planet Me” division.

Financial considerations aside, EVs offer drivers a smooth, quiet driving experience and all of us cleaner breathing air in our towns and cities, so everyone benefits.

The EV20 Plugged-In Fleets report demonstrates the economic and environmental benefits of employing EVs in fleets and provides practical guidance for fleet managers looking to introduce them.

The report looks to provide readers with an overall assessment of the current and future benefits of electrifying a fleet and step-by-step advice on the measures that a company would need to take when assessing the practicality of this. It also raises awareness of the financial and operational incentives that are available to businesses when electrifying a fleet and the commercial advantages that could follow.

The report was endorsed in today’s Plug-In Van Grant (PIVG) announcement by Secretary of State for Transport, Justine Greening MP. Additionally, Norman Baker MP, Transport Minister and Mark Prisk MP, Minister of State for Business and Enterprise, co-authored the report foreward.

The report highlights that EVs can make good commercial sense if they are deployed in the right place and businesses benefit from a range of incentives from the plug-in car and van grants to enhanced capital allowances, and drivers of electric cars pay no company car tax until 2015.
