Multifleet Vehicle Management achieves Go Ultra Low Company status and launches six-month subsidised trial of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
Customers trialling the Outlander will be able to experience any environmental advantages for “an extended period, at a low cost”.
Multifleet’s managing director Steve Whitmarsh said: “We are delighted to have been awarded Go Ultra Low Company status. We were early adopters of this technology with the introduction to our fleet of a Smart car in 2011 as part of the Coventry and Birmingham Low Emission Demonstrator programme. We extended this programme and ran the vehicle for 3 years and more than 30,000 miles.
“We are very committed to this technology and are currently working in partnership with Mitsubishi to promote the uptake of plug-in vehicles – enabling our customers to have a subsidised 6-month trial of the Outlander PHEV.
“Customers are even able to take advantage of the free installation of a home charging point to help remove some of the perceived problems with running this type of vehicle.
“As businesses face uncertainty over the future of normally fuelled vehicles, it is our duty to provide sound advice to our customers. We provide fleet management services to over 21,000 vehicles operated by, mainly SME businesses that do not necessarily have access to the advice and demonstrators of larger fleets.”
Poppy Welch head of Go Ultra Low said: “We want to encourage every business in the UK to follow the example set by Multifleet Vehicle Management to offer employees the chance to drive or own an electric vehicle.
“Not only does it demonstrate a commitment to a cleaner automotive future, but there are multiple short- and long-term financial benefits for companies and their employees to enjoy. Thanks to the wide variety of models available and their cost-saving potential, this is a realistic and rewarding option for businesses large and small.”
