Lex Autolease gets in gear for electric vehicle demand with DriveElectric
Lex Autolease, a division of Lloyds Bank, is the UK’s largest vehicle leasing company and deals with nearly 400,000 vehicles.
Lex Autolease has chosen DriveElectric to handle their electric vehicle leads and enquiries. We will be available to help over 1.2 million Lloyds Bank business customers make the transition to electric cars and vans.
Since 2008 we have become leaders in this market helping businesses and individuals alike transition to zero-emission motoring. As partners with Lex Autolease, we will provide expert advice, personal service and the right electric vehicle lease options for business customers looking to go electric.
Lex Autolease introduced the first mainstream plug-in vehicles to their customer fleets early in 2011 and, through working with DriveElectric, will expand their offering, both in terms of vehicles, and essential knowledge to support customers in their transition to ultra-low emission vehicles.
We will be arranging events for Lex customers, showcasing electric vehicles and providing expert advice to help businesses transition to electric as well as dealing with all Lex Autolease’s web enquiries for electric vehicles.

“This partnership is huge for DriveElectric we are thrilled that they have chosen to partner with us. We passionately believe in supporting individuals and businesses make the transition to zero-emission transport and energy and we are excited to be able to share this passion with Lex Autolease’s customers. “
“Businesses now realise they have to be electric vehicle ready as the benefits of switching to electric company cars mean demand is rocketing. Working with Lex Autolease allows us to share our knowledge with over 1.2m customers. We will help customers understand how they can make electric vehicles work for them and their business, and how charging at home and the workplace really works. We’re keen to demystify a soon to be essential process for thousands of people and ensure clarity and growth of an electric vehicle future.”
“With benefit in kind reducing to 0% for pure electric vehicles in 2020 many employees can have a company car without having to pay company car tax. Businesses and employees are all now increasing their demand for electric vehicles and the fleet sector has a key role to play in encouraging their high mileage drivers to switch to electric. The financial savings of switching to an electric company car are approximately £2550 per year in fuel alone compared to a diesel or petrol equivalent mid-range SUV, travelling 15,000 a year, so overall they are very good value and help towards UK’s sustainability goals.”
