Announced at the Zero Emission Vehicle Summit in Birmingham, the funding is available to business and personal customers and is expected to help customers make the decision to go greener, backed up by electric vehicle support and guidance from Lex.

Tim Porter, managing director of Lex Autolease, commented: “In July, the Government set out its ambition for at least half of new vehicles to be ultra-low emission by 2030. Our announcement today highlights our commitment to supporting this ambition and the role we, as the UK’s leading vehicle leasing provider, can play in helping to make it happen.”

The leasing giant said the move could increase the total number of pure electric vehicles registered next year by around 8% while also doubling the size of its own pure electric fleet.

Porter continued: “As the global automotive industry goes through this transformative period, the leasing industry has a huge role to play. We have been working with customers for a number of years to help them upgrade to low emission vehicles – where it’s the right move for them as individual drivers or fleets. We’re ideally placed to provide the guidance and support that drivers and fleets need in order to make this important transition.”
