In 2030, the UK is set to ban the sale of all new petrol and diesel cars, meaning now is the perfect time to opt for electric vehicle leasing for your business.
And as well as being better for the environment, electric vehicles also bring with them a whole host of business benefits. A fleet of electric cars can boost your reputation with your current and future clients and it can make sense from an economic standpoint too.
Running electric cars for your business fleet is much more cost-effective than those with combustion engines. Fuel costs are less, whilst you can even save up to 30% when it comes to servicing and maintenance too. Plus if you’re driving in London you can make considerable savings on congestion and ULEZ charges.
Benefit in kind (BIK) costs are much cheaper too when you opt for a Jaguar business lease on an electric vehicle. Specifically, you’ll only have to pay 2% company car tax, compared to 14% for plug-in hybrids, 28% for petrol vehicles with CO2 emissions over 119g/km and 32% for diesels over 116g/km. The cost savings are clearly considerable when it comes to driving electric.
But can Jaguar electric cars do the job when it comes to range? Something that will be an essential requirement for a business lease? It’s a resounding yes, with the I-PACE promising a real-world range of 220 miles from a single charge.
Jaguar I-PACE business lease
As Jaguar’s only current electric vehicle, the I-PACE is an SUV with a 90kWh battery capable of covering 292 miles on a single charge, although we clock the real world range at 220 miles. It also comes equipped with a clever Enhanced Brake Regeneration system which helps you maximise range in the form of easy, single pedal driving.
The I-PACE is also quick, as it goes from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds, with 50/50 weight distribution and 4x4 capabilities.
Simple and risk-free
Setting up your Jaguar business lease with DriveElectric is super simple. When you choose your car, simply pick the lease duration and pay a deposit. When you Jaguar business lease runs out, you can hand back your car with no obligation to pay anything else.
Simple to budget
Included within your Jaguar business lease will be both road tax and a full manufacturer warranty. And by opting for a service and maintenance package, you can adequately budget too.
Enhance your reputation
By turning your back on combustion engines and packing your business fleet with environmentally-friendly EVs with zero tailpipe emissions, you will do wonders for your business’ reputation.
