Fleet views sought on new EV cable leasing service

Online business 4EV, which sells charging cables for electric vehicles (EV), is looking for organisations with one to five EVs to trial its new cable leasing service.

The company was launched by entrepreneur and EV driver Darren Pegram (pictured) after he bought his own electric car and realised there were a limited number of places he could buy charging cables at a reasonable price.

He now plans to launch a new leasing service which will allow fleet managers to lease charging cables for a set amount of time, returning or updating them once the lease on their vehicles has expired.

Pegram said: “Since 4EV was established we’ve mainly been targeting private electric vehicle owners and have built up a great following from that.

“It seemed to me that the next logical step in growing the business would be to look at the option of leasing cables.

"More and more fleet managers are looking at increasing the number of low emission or electric vehicles within their fleet and, in addition to that, more companies are offering employees the option of choosing an electric vehicle as a company car.

“We are sure there is a market for this type of service and would be very interested to hear from any organisations which could benefit from this option.”

> If you have a fleet of between one and five electric vehicles and would like to take part in a cable leasing pilot scheme please contact 4EV on 0844 804 4189, email fleet@4ev.co.uk or visit www.4ev.co.uk.
