The drop – from 101g/km to 51g/km – is the result of a change in the mix of cars ordered by drivers. The firm said 60% of its orders in 2020 have been ultra-low emission vehicles, while nearly 40% of overall orders are actually for fully electric vehicles.

Paul Gilshan, CEO of Tusker, said: “The Government have really encouraged workers up and down the UK to move to electric vehicles through our salary sacrifice car schemes. With such a wide range of electric cars becoming more affordable thanks to the changes the Government is making to Benefit-in-Kind, drivers are becoming more aware that the cheapest way to drive electric is through salary sacrifice.”
