|Charged-up Fleetdrive are green champions in Small Fleet Leasing Awards|
|Tuesday, 01 December 2015|
Fleetdrive have been recognised as the green champions in the 2015 Business Car Manager Small Fleet Leasing Awards, which recognise the best suppliers of fleet leasing to the SME sector, the engine room of the UK's economic recovery.
Fleetdrive, an electric vehicle (EV) specialist, was awarded Best Small Fleet Green Leasing Company for the third successive year. The independent judges from the Small Fleet Leasing Federation felt that ‘Fleetdrive's submission showed a real commitment to being a great green fleet provider and their specialism was clear to see'.
In a growing market for electric and hybrid cars, Fleetdrive this year created a new EV Flexi-Lease service, enabling organisations to make easily-extendable trials of EVs within a practical application, to ensure suitability before making long-term rental commitments.
They have also recently introduced an ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV) Salary Sacrifice scheme, unique in the leasing industry, designed to encourage employees to switch to electric cars.
Leasing brokers are playing an increasingly important role in the vehicle finance sector, especially amongst SMEs who are taking advantage of alternative funding options. The sector has seen dramatic growth in 2015 and is on target for 200,000 vehicles on contract by end of the year, following an unprecedented growth rate of 40% during the last two years.
Ralph Morton, editor of Business Car Manager, said: "Fleetdrive have successfully delivered more than 450 electric vehicles to the UK market, maintaining their position as the UK's leading provider of leased electric vehicles.
"They are partners in a number of exciting, pioneering initiatives, such as the ‘My Electric Avenue' project, which is providing essential research data to the UK power industry on the effects on EV charging on the national grid, and NW Bicester.
"This is a true carbon-zero 5,000-home development in Oxfordshire where they are working with developers A2Dominion to promote sustainable transport and provide EV solutions."
