How can I electrify my vehicle fleet?
The UK government is working towards all road vehicles being emission-free by 2050 and is planning a ban on new petrol and diesel cars in 2040. These bold targets, along with the availability of technology and market pressures, are driving the transport sector towards the transition to electric vehicles.
There are growing numbers of types of plug-in cars available, including cars, SUVs and medium-sized vans, so it increasingly makes financial sense for businesses to consider converting their whole fleet to electric vehicles.
How can we help
We are uniquely placed to support the development of your electric vehicle strategy or your transition from fossil-based technology towards the electrification of your entire fleet. That includes optimising your existing assets, integrating electric vehicle charging infrastructure and delivering commercial benefits. We provide an end-to-end integrated solution, from initial feasibility studies through to design, build, and smart operation and ongoing maintenance.
From electric vehicle charging infrastructure to software and hardware, we are technology agnostic, ensuring the equipment we use best meets your requirements. Should you require finance to turn your electric vehicle ambitions into reality, we can handle that too.
