Contract Hire & Leasing
Alphabet believes the future of mobility for businesses is electric, however to really take off it has to be seamless. In the UK, the Government’s Road to Zero strategy wants as many as 70% of all new cars to be ultra-low emission by 2030 – just over a decade from now.
One of the key challenges for business leaders and fleet decision makers is how to electrify their vehicles cost efficiently, while being agile enough to adapt to changing local Air Quality requirements – such as the new Clean Air Zones (CAZs) or upcoming Zero Emission Zones (ZEZs). Contract Hire and Leasing is an increasingly important way to manage this important transition without requiring significant capital investment, while providing flexibility to suit your precise needs.
Businesses of all sizes have realised the need for change and we’re actively supporting organisations to adjust their policies and redefine mobility strategies towards electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. For many businesses, plug-in hybrids are a key stepping stone towards going fully electric.
If you’re thinking about how to electrify your vehicle fleet but you’re not sure how or where to start, talk to us. We’re one of the UK’s leading providers of battery electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), managing a fleet of over 12,500 cars and eLCVs. Find out more about how to switch your fleet to zero emission with Alphabet.
It’s time to look ahead and move to a cleaner, safer fleet and Zenith is here to help fleet operators navigate these changes.
Recent positive Government announcements on company car tax has left fleet operators wondering how to review their car policy and choice list. Key highlights are Zero tax for electric cars in 2020 and a two-tier company car tax system, with those registering after April using WLTP CO2 emissions.
It’s important to accurately understand the impacts and opportunities to make savings whilst promoting cleaner, cheaper cars. Fleet managers should look at their current car choices and compare today’s total cost of ownership and driver BiK with what this looks like post April 2020. However, WLTP CO2 emission data availability varies by manufacturer.
We are planning for this change by staying close to manufacturers and using all available data to examine impacts based on fuel type and car style. This allows us to identify trends and cost-efficient solutions, avoiding a broad-brush approach and inaccurate conclusions. Post April policies must allow for an increase of viable alternative-fuel vehicle choices and a defined individual approach to electric car policy to allow drivers to take advantage of the current tax landscape.
