The DriveElectric Approach to Net Zero

We understand

Sounds pretty obvious, doesn’t it? But here’s the thing: we’re living in a time where greenwashing is rife, seeing businesses misleading their audiences into false environmental claims. Not with DriveElectric.

With years of extensive experience under our seatbelts, we pride ourselves on knowing the ‘greenness of green’. Everything we do is backed by science and always fact-checked, so you can trust that you’re working with the very best.

We measure impact

We understand that there is an immense amount of pressure on businesses from all industries to take action towards Net Zero.

And yet, there is still so little guidance on what those first steps look like. So, you’ve moved to an EV. Great! But what about the next stage? We can help you measure every aspect of your progress - giving you total clarity of your carbon footprint.

This also makes it much simpler to measure the cost/benefit analysis. 

We combine

As the UK’s leading EV leasing company, we pride ourselves on working with trusted partners for charging and energy solutions.

Being selective about those who share our synergy is key for a successful collaboration, resulting in a maximum impact for our valued customers.  

That's why we can offer a broad range of products and services to all shapes and sizes of UK businesses.

Fiat E-Ducato Charging

We have helped thousands of organisations operate their fleets and we can help you do the same.

We know how tricky it can be to transition away from a diesel-powered fleet and into electric vehicles. But the good news is, it is getting easier and with our help, we can smooth out the issues and barriers you are likely to face.

We have learned that the key to success is to concentrate on your drivers by winning their hearts and minds. If you can prove the benefits of an electric van to its driver then you’re more than halfway there – and let’s be honest, driving an electric van is a lot easier and healthier than driving a diesel van.

Other areas of expertise include charging strategy (taking in public, workplace and home charging), energy management, process and policy adoption and telematics analysis.

Whole life cost considerations

We always say don't just look at the headline lease figure when it comes to comparing an electric van with a diesel alternative. Our customers have found that in the long run, an electric van is cheaper to run.

Whether through reduced maintenance, longer life, improved employee satisfaction or free access to London ULEZ and congestion zones, the comparison against diesel is won when you consider all costs associated with your fleet.

Our innovative 5-step EV fleet solution

Our EV experts work collaboratively to ensure a best-fit solution to managing an EV fleet.

We work with you on analysing telematics data, while also asking your drivers to complete an EV attitude survey. The results will form the backbone of your EV strategy.

Using a variety of tools our EV consultants accurately map out the positive impact of replacing conventional powered vehicles, both from a financial but also a environmental impact.

One of the most common questions we're asked is about keeping your vehicles moving. With our expertise, we can put together a comprehensive charging strategy encompassing home, workplace and public network charging.

Use our ready-made policy documents to fast track electric vehicles into your business.

We've helped to get thousands of EVs on roads, helping 100s of UK organisations ditch diesel along the way. We can help source a wide range of light commercial vehicles and cars on preferential business lease contracts.

DriveElectric Plus

Bringing EVs into your fleet is key for getting on the road to Net Zero. But DriveElectric Plus is what will take you the rest of the way.

Workplace Charging

Our complete turnkey workplace charging solutions help businesses with the full life-cycle from surveys and planning, through installation, maintenance and ongoing management. We take the headache out of providing workplace chargers.
