How Green Is Your Fleet?

How Green Is Your Fleet?

For numerous reasons, it’s a good idea for fleets to go green but how do you go about it?  We at Marshall Leasing have strong credentials, plus the tools and enthusiasm to assist you in what can be a complicated process. 

Latest figures relating to the month of January 2022 from the Society of Motoring Manufacturers show a ‘boost’ in electrification with 36,972 new BEVs, PHEVs and HEVs registered - accounting for 71.5 per cent of the total uplift in new car registrations.

Aside from the obvious ethical imperatives to ‘going green’, the government has also made available cash and tax incentives for EV drivers in the lead up to the 2030 deadline for banning the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles and the 2035 deadline for new hybrid vehicle sales. These include a 2% BIK rate for the current tax year (2022/23) and the next two tax years, as well as an exemption from VED until March 2025.

It really pays to thoroughly research and understand your organisation’s needs and objectives, including your grey fleet.

Who will be driving the vehicle and is it fit-for-purpose? How accessible is home charging? Does the driver live in an urban or rural area? Do they take long or short distance drives? We at Marshall Leasing have teamed up with charging equipment providers, Pod Point and BP Chargemaster who will assist in ensuring that the house or work location is able to facilitate charging points.

In addition, we work with The Miles Consultancy (TMC) who provide real-world, data-driven solutions  to give the full picture on usage analysis that takes the uncertainty out of going electric. They look at the journey profile of each vehicle in your fleet to identify where electric vehicles would work effectively. 

There is a process to go through, so make sure that you do your due diligence before you place an order.

The electric vehicle revolution is already underway.  Are you ready to join?
