Fleet Evolution has launched a salary sacrifice package for employees choosing an electric car.
The variant of the normal salary sacrifice car offering, Electric Flex, will allow customers to use up to four weeks of normal car use per annum.
Based in the Midlands, Fleet Evolution specialises in offering a selection of low emission vehicles and electric cars as part of a salary sacrifice benefits package for employees.
The Electric Flex scheme is a new initiative from Fleet Evolution aimed at increasing the number of electric vehicles chosen as a company car.
Customers who take out an Electric Flex scheme will not just have access to one electric car, they will also have the opportunity to add the use of a petrol or diesel fuelled car for one, two, three or four weeks per year.
The use of the second car can be taken with minimal notice, and at the customer’s discretion – in a full week block or just for a day at a time.
Fleet Evolution director Andrew Leech said: “Our new scheme means customer can take an electric car safe in the knowledge there is an alternative car available if they need it.
“While electric cars are great for the environment and provision for them is improving, they are simply not practical for long distances.
“This is an issue for our customers when choosing a salary sacrifice car, which is why we have implemented the Electric Flex package.
“Anyone taking an electric car can have peace of mind, so whether it’s for a week long family holiday or a family emergency, customers can use an alternative car with minimal notice.”
The scheme aims to give flexibility between the two vehicles, with customers choosing how many weeks per annum they would require the use of an alternative car.
Last year, the salary sacrifice car company reduced their customers’ motoring carbon footprint by 42% by replacing older vehicles with newer models.
Now, with the introduction of the Electric Flex scheme they hope to persuade even more people to choose electric vehicles.
“Some customers still prefer the reliability of a car with a traditional engine,” added Leech. “To overcome this, we are offering electric car customers up to four weeks use of a normal car each year, in a bid to get more people driving eco-friendly vehicles.
“The only reason people would need an alternative car is to drive very long distances, which most people wouldn’t need to do more than 28 days per annum.”
