Considering the switch to electric vehicles?

How we can help

We know making the switch to electric vehicles (EVs) comes with questions, costs, and logistics to consider. We’re here to help, so you can make informed decisions at every stage of your journey.

The business benefits of switching to EVs

Save on costs

Get support with the upfront costs of larger charge point installations with the Workplace Charging Scheme grant.

Avoid charges

All EVs are exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty, Congestion Charge, Ultra Low Emission Zone and Low Emission Zone charges.

Pay less tax

Pay only 2% Benefit in Kind until 2025, compared with 37% for higher-emission vehicles.
