Fleetdrive Electric has announced that it is to officially launch its Ultra-Low Emissions Salary Sacrifice scheme at the forthcoming Facilities Show.
The launch of an Ultra-Low Emissions Salary Sacrifice solution is the latest in a series of 2015 initiatives by Fleetdrive Electric, who are always exploring new, pioneering ways to support the UK’s transition to Ultra-Low Carbon Transport utilising their specialist knowledge and expertise, and follows the recent announcement of a new EV Flexi-Lease service.
Fleetdrive Electric, which has more than 300 ULEV company cars and vans on its books and plans to almost double the fleet by 2017, says interest from existing customers for car salary sacrifice has increased in recent months.
Historically, Fleetdrive Electric’s focus has been the sub-100 fleet sector but the company believes that a salary sacrifice scheme specifically designed for Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles can prove attractive to large and smaller employers.
Mike Potter, Managing Director of Fleetdrive Electric said: “Many leasing companies already have a salary sacrifice offering, but it is effectively a “bolt on” to the menu of funding solutions they already offer.
“In keeping with our reputation for customer service excellence and innovative low-carbon transport solutions, we now have a bespoke salary sacrifice car product available that we believe is at the cutting-edge of what is available.”
Fleetdrive Electric, which is based in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, but also has an office in the Orkney Isles, will specifically target employers with less than 1,000 employees with its ULEV salary sacrifice solution, a market which it believes remains largely untapped by the major providers.
Adam Kemp, Sales Director, will lead Fleetdrive Electric’s drive into the sector, with a team of ULEV specialists dedicated to work with clients introducing schemes.
Kemp said: “The continuing stream from vehicle manufacturers of low-emission cars twinned with ‘attractive’ corporate and personal tax rates on those vehicles when compared with salary tax rates makes sacrificing earnings for a car financially beneficial for organisations and staff. With the additional environmental benefits that electric vehicles provide, we believe demand for a ULEV salary sacrifice programme, which boosts your environmental credentials, will soon begin to accelerate.”
