Grosvenor and EO Charging partner for plug-in vehicle lease package
EO Charging and Grosvenor Leasing have teamed up to offer a plug-in vehicle lease package designed to help fleets make the transition to electric vehicles.
The solution builds the cost of an EO charger as an option into the overall lease cost of a vehicle. The charger can be located either at work or a home, depending on the requirement, with options including the EO Genius, a smart enabled charge-point that can connect to the EO Hub and communicate with the grid. The EO Genius is currently used by a number of companies including Sainsbury’s Online and Gnewt Cargo.
The new package builds on Grosvenor Leasing’s ‘0Zone’ service, launched in 2017 to advise and support companies looking to transition their fleet to zero or low emissions.
Mark Gallagher, head of 0Zone at Grosvenor Leasing, said: “We see EO Charging as a key plug-in partner to our contract hire and fleet management offering. This partnership will allow us to extend our support to clients and ultimately facilitate the widespread adoption of low emission vehicles across the UK.
“Since launching 0Zone two years ago, 96% of all new vehicle policies created for customers include vehicles below 110g/km, as well as ULEVs and EVs. The average CO2 for new vehicles delivered in 2018 was 102g/km, and Grosvenor’s overall average is now 104g/km CO2, and hybrid and electric vehicles now make up 26% of order intake.”
The firm’s figures compare to a UK new car average figure of 124.5g/km as per SMMT figures.
