Tusker orders up on back of strong EV demand

By / 10 months ago / Latest News / No Comments

Tusker says it’s continuing to outperform the UK new car market, with order books significantly up and electric vehicles accounting for nearly half of demand.

Tusker says more than 60% of its total orders are ULEVs, with over 45% of all new orders in the last 30 days being pure electric

The salary sacrifice specialist has reported a 33% year-on-year rise in October orders, compared to a 1.6% fall in total UK new car registrations, which reached their lowest level for the month since 2011.

Tusker has also reported higher-than-average demand for electrified vehicles. While one in five (19.9%) of the UK’s overall new car sales were hybrids or full electric vehicles, Tusker says it’s seen more than 60% of its total orders as ULEVs, with over 45% of all new orders in the last 30 days being pure electric. The firm’s average CO2 for each vehicle ordered in October was less than 46g/km.

Paul Gilshan, CEO said: “While it’s been a tough year for our industry, Tusker has seen fantastic growth underpinned by our electric offering. Salary saving schemes are the cheapest all-inclusive way to drive electric without paying a deposit upfront and I am proud that we continue to make affordable new cleaner vehicles available to so many different employees across the UK.”

The business is also targeting further growth despite the latest lockdown, helped by its online ordering system and no-contact delivery processes.
