EV, the fuel of the future

With the ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles fast approaching, businesses must now consider greener alternatives for their fleets. Although several alternative fuels are available, including HVO and hydrogen, EVs will likely be the most practical choice for many.

The benefits of EVs

Powered by an electric motor, electric vehicles produce zero emissions whilst driving. By adopting EVs, businesses can help to protect the environment, which will improve reputation, and save money on fuel. 

Although EVs currently cost more upfront than their ICE counterparts, drivers will likely save money in the long-run due to EVs having lower tax, insurance, fuel, and maintenance costs. By choosing EVs for your fleet, your drivers can also access clean air zones without being charged, helping to reduce costs if you travel within large cities across the UK.

The hybrid alternative

For those businesses that are not yet ready to take the plunge into electric, hybrid vehicles could be the ideal solution. They use a combination of a petrol or diesel ICE engine and an electric motor to help reduce carbon emissions. Discover our useful guide on hybrid vehicles to find out more.

Businesses with plug-in hybrids (PHEV) can benefit from our EV fuel card, as you can use it as payment when using a public charging point. Please note that although your PHEV will still run if it’s not recharged, its fuel economy and sustainability will be negatively impacted.

EV charge card

So that we can continue to help businesses save time and money, we are planning to expand our selection of products to include the fuels of the future, starting with electric. Once launched, drivers will be able to use our dedicated EV charge card at charging stations across the UK. They’ll work similarly to our current fuel cards, with businesses receiving a weekly online invoice detailing all transactions. Payment will then be taken via Direct Debit.
