Why Norway is Leading the Way With Electric Vehicles

Why Norway is Leading the Way With Electric Vehicles

With more electric vehicles (EVs) per capita than any other country, Norway is a leading pioneer in the electrification of road transport. And with the goal of selling only zero-emission cars by 2025, they plan to soon speed ahead and become the EV capital of the world. This may be odd to hear from the largest producer of oil in Western Europe. But for anyone who's visited the Scandinavian country, it will be no surprise. Most of the energy used within Norway is generated from renewable sources. An incredible 98 percent of the electricity sector relies... Read full article

A common-sense approach when it comes to vehicle security

A common-sense approach when it comes to vehicle security

All new cars have a good level of security and engine immobilisation fitted as standard.  It is becoming increasingly difficult for thieves to “hot wire” a vehicle.  This has led to a rise in theft of keys from house burglaries, hook and cane key theft through letterboxes and car-jacking.

4 Tips For Running a More Efficient Fleet

4 Tips For Running a More Efficient Fleet

There’s a big difference between running a fleet and running an efficient fleet. It’s not that it requires much more effort or know how; rather that it takes a different, more holistic approach. For this reason, the majority of companies are still running fleets in extremely inefficient ways, effectively pouring their hard earned time and money down the drain. To run an efficient fleet, businesses and fleet managers must take a step back from individual and problem-led practices, and engage in preemptive action, dedicated management, and data gathering and...

The Top 3 Benefits of Leasing Over Buying an Electric Car

Today in the UK there are over 85,000 electric vehicles (EVs) on the road, and that’s only counting those purchased with help from the government’s Plug-in Car Grant. The real figure is much larger.

Particularly from brands like Aston Martin, whose cars appeared in over a dozen James Bond films.

Could Audi’s E-diesel Be The Answer To The Carbon Crisis?

With growing demand for eco-friendly vehicles and ever-heightening fuel costs, car manufacturers are moving more and more toward more sustainably-powered alternatives. For a lot of companies, this means turning to electricity. But ever since the first electric car came out nearly two hundred years ago, electric has been known for its limitations. Not least the short distance ranges, the infrastructure needed to power vehicles, and the fact it requires the design of completely new engines. Audi, however, is taking a different approach. Since 2014, they’ve been... Read full article
