Fleet News April 2022 cover

The April edition of Fleet News is packed with exclusive interviews, best practice and insight, and a 25-page guide to electric vehicles (EVs).

From tax to cost of ownership to workplace charging, the guide provides the answers to the questions fleet decision-makers are asking.

In news, read how Government is targeting local authorities with support to help in set-up of vital charging infrastructure. 

Councils will be expected to work closely with fleets to ensure their needs for public charging infrastructure are taken into consideration, the Government says.

Meanwhile, HMRC stresses mileage rates are ‘advisory’ as analysis by Fleet News show they fail to reflect fuel expenses incurred by company car drivers

In Tomorrow’s Fleet, Fleet News examines how as income from motoring taxes falls, the possibility of a national charging scheme has risen in prominence

Fleet News also hears how OCU Group’s Stephen Jackson is keeping the wheels turning and the fleet compliant, as he and his team oversee 1,000 vehicles and 3,500 items of plant. 

There is also an interview with Polestar as it makes progress in the EV marketplace. 

Having launched in 2020, the Polestar 2 – currently the brand’s only model – has exceeded all expectations. Registrations have grown from 850 in the first year to more than 4,000 during a tumultuous 2021. This year, Polestar is expecting to deliver around 7,500 2s and thinks it could do a lot more.

The trends in vehicle leasing are also explored in depth in the April edition of Fleet News.

It examines how the environment has become the primary focus of fleet decision-makers, forcing a new approach by leasing companies and, in times of economic uncertainty, how new working practices and growth in staff benefits are changing fleet expectations of their leasing partners

Furthermore, it looks at how finance houses with close links to vehicle manufacturers are developing a suite of new car ownership models

The Fleet News Ignition section puts the Citroen C5 X through its paces, as well as the Skoda Fabia and the Volvo C40

Finally, Commercial Fleet’s lead news story has a warning from vehicle leasing companies for fleets to order vehicles early to help mitigate disruption to supply
