Vitality has launched an electric vehicle (EV) salary sacrifice scheme with Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions (HCVS). 

The new benefit enables Vitality staff to lease a new electric or hybrid vehicle at a reduced cost through salary sacrifice.

Vitality said its staff can choose from a range of 800 makes and models including, BMW and Nissan amongst others.

Deepak Jobanputra, chief sustainability officer at Vitality, said: “We’ve always been a business built on supporting people, including our employees, to take small steps to make choices that improve their health.

“Our new electric and hybrid vehicle scheme now helps them to make more sustainable choices too.

“Transport is a key contributor to UK carbon emissions so encouraging the lease of electric or hybrid vehicles through salary sacrifice, in addition to our existing Cycle to Work scheme is a way to support and empower individuals to take positive environmental action.”

The all-inclusive scheme includes maintenance of the vehicle, tyre maintenance, fully comprehensive insurance, annual vehicle tax and UK roadside assistance.

The scheme will also provide employees with the option of returning, buying or ordering a new car when their lease ends.

Last year, Vitality set out its target to achieve carbon neutrality in its operations by 2025 with a longer-term goal of net zero emissions by 2050 or earlier.

Jobanputra added: “We are already innovating to create products and services that help people make choices that reduce their impact on the environment: we entered the car insurance market in 2021 with a proposition that incentivises car-free days and provides drivers with the opportunity for Vitality to offset their carbon emissions when they drive more safely."
