Industry News- COMPANY CAR DRIVERS COULD SAVE ALMOST £7,400 BY GOING ELECTRIC

Company car drivers could save around £3,974 in Benefit in Kind rates and £3,402 in fuel savings over three years with a 100% electric car
•New fuel and tax cost calculator tools from Go Ultra Low reveal cost-savings for business and consumer motorists
•Government grants and incentives, such as Workplace Charging and Plug-in Car Grant, represent further thousands of pounds’ worth of savings

New figures from Go Ultra Low reveal that company car drivers could save around £7,376 by switching to a 100% electric carThis figure, calculated by comparing average electric and diesel models, includes a Benefit in Kind (BIK) rate saving of £3,9741, in addition to an average £3,402 fuel saving2 over a typical three-year cycle of company car ownership.

New online cost comparison tools on www.goultralow.com provide fuel and tax cost savings for both company car drivers and private motorists. The cost calculators allow all new petrol and diesel engine cars to be compared side-by-side with every plug-in hybrid and 100% electric car from Go Ultra Low’s supporting manufacturers Audi, BMW, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, Renault, Toyota and Volkswagen.

Poppy Welch, Head of Go Ultra Low, said: “Businesses should not be put off by the upfront purchase price of electric vehicles, but should instead focus on the fantastic savings they offer over the life of the vehicle. However, we know that many questions and concerns still remain in regards to electric vehicles and their viability for business. That’s why Go Ultra Low has developed a range of tools to offer businesses and drivers the information they need to choose the car that best suits their needs.”

Further cost savings are available too, as Government grants provide up to £4,500 off the price of pure electric cars, £2,500 off the price of eligible plug-in hybrid cars, and up to £8,000 off the price of a new electric van. Consumers can also benefit from up to £500 off the cost of installing an electric chargepoint at their home. To make commuting in a plug-in car even more viable, businesses can also take advantage of the Workplace Charging Scheme, which provides grants of up to £300 per charging socket.
