Low and zero-emission fleets

Fleet managers can no longer ignore the push towards lower and zero-emission fleets going forward

Sustainability

    The electric future has many challenges for fleet managers, but also incredible opportunities. We’ll all be driving electric vehicles soon. There are over 200,000 hybrid or electric vehicles in the UK, by 2024, there’ll be over a million. Meanwhile, the government’s Road To Zero strategy lays out a plan for an ultra-low emissions society. But while electric vehicles offer drastically lower benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax rates, and sustainability should be everyone’s priority, there’s no doubt the aggressive timeframe is putting pressure on business.

    Many fleet managers are put off by the time and complexities involved in properly assessing the cost and impact of switching. The good news is, there’s never been more choice or opportunity in electric vehicles.


    However, there’s no time to waste. Last year’s Automated and Electric Vehicles Act allows the creation of further laws and regulation if the government does not feel the market is moving quickly enough. The rollout of Clean Air Zones (CAZ) such as the one piloted in London is gaining pace with the majority of local councils across the UK beginning to put in place the equipment and resource needed to start daily penalties.
