Going electric

Is now the time to consider EV for your fleet?

UK Road

    Strong public opinion around vehicle emissions and the environmental impact combined with government legislated targets is creating a fast changing backdrop. Meaning electric vehicles could be relevant for your business now.

    There are already over 200,000 hybrid or electric vehicles on the road. In five years’ time there will be over one million. As electric performance and cutting edge technology evolve every day, the electric future offers more and more incredible possibilities.

    Join the race to carbon neutral

    In September 2023 the Government announced changes to it's road to zero plan, with the switch deadline moving from 2030 to 2035, giving businesses an extra five years to transition to electric.  

    We understand that there is a lot of information available around the benefits and considerations when it comes to electric vehicles. Athlon have created a handy guide to help get you started on your EV fleet journey, summarising the need-to-know information whilst providing the detail in the key areas.
