Tusker has collaborated with electric vehicle infrastructure and procurement company Diode to help companies develop electrification strategies.

The alliance aims to help businesses understand the requirements needed to develop and deliver their electrification strategy, including the appropriate charging infrastructure and associated services.

Diode speciliases in simplifying vehicle electrification procurement by building electric vehicle implementation plans, matching them to the right infrastructure and securing the best deal.

Steve Barker, commercial director at Tusker, said: “April 2020 sees a change in government strategy with significant savings available to employees when they take an electric car via salary sacrifice.”

Tusker says it has already seen huge increases in demand for electric vehicles over the past year.

“Tusker has begun this fantastic relationship with Diode in order to support our customer organisations and their employees in the take up of electric vehicles. Many organisations can see the huge benefits electric vehicles can provide, from reducing their carbon output to saving money. Diode are the obvious choice for Tusker to work with as they share our vision in providing the best service to our customers,” added Barker.

Tusker’s client base includes private sector companies, multiple NHS Trusts and Local Authorities. Its mission is to make it easy for employees of organisations across the UK to drive a better car – a brand new vehicle, which comes complete with insurance, breakdown cover, replacement tyres, servicing and maintenance, and road tax for a fixed monthly amount.
