If you run a fleet of vehicles you will have many considerations when it comes to choosing the right cars for your team. With electric and hybrid vehicles as relatively new choices, you might be wondering what exactly are the benefits of switching to an electric car?
We have outlined some of the key benefits below.
Zero emissions is one of the key point that makes electric vehicles an attractive proposition.
If you are mindful of your business’ carbon footprint and want to decrease the impact your business has on the environment, then Electric Vehicles are for you.
If you opt for a fully electric car, no petrol or diesel is needed and if you opt for a hybrid, your CO2 emissions will reduce significantly – all good news for your carbon footprint.
Compared to traditional fuels, electricity is cheaper. On a cost per mile basis a pure electric car could cost a third of what a traditional petrol or diesel car does. Hybrids, combining an electric motor with a petrol or diesel engine, can also be considerably cheaper to run.
EASIER TO MAINTAIN
Pure electric cars have just three main components – the on-board charger, inverter and motor – and fewer moving parts than cars with a traditional engine. This means there are fewer points of failure and servicing is simpler.
A ‘green’ brand image is a positive thing to have and switching to electric and/or hybrid vehicles is a very clear message that you and your business care about the environment.
Of course, your vehicles are just a part of creating a green brand image and many of the businesses we work with have implemented other policies including reduction in international travel, using video-conferencing where possible and recycling policies.
