Blacktrace Holdings welcomes Nissan Leaf to car scheme

Royston-based science company Blacktrace Holdings has taken delivery of eight new Nissan Leafs as part of its company car scheme.

Blacktrace Holdings is a group of companies who create commercially-viable products from new scientific discoveries or inventions.  Blacktrace Holdings has welcomed the 100% electric Nissan Leaf in order to promote low CO2 company cars to employees.

Already eight Leafs are with employees at subsidiary companies within Blacktrace Holdings to now use as their personal day-to-day cars. Blacktrace Holdings is offering the option of a company car to employees across its companies if the proposed vehicle emits less than 110g/km CO2.

The Leaf produces no emissions on the move and so qualifies for the company car scheme open to employees through a salary sacrifice arrangement. As salary sacrifice is heavily affected by a vehicle’s BIK, the 0% BIK rated Leaf stood out as a cost-effective solution to Blacktrace Holdings employees.

With employees trialling head-to-head a Vauxhall Ampera and Leaf before deciding on the Leaf praising its styling, driver comfort and lower overall vehicle cost.
