LeasePlan has launched an electric vehicle pilot programme for corporates companies who want to make the switch to low-emission vehicles.
The pilot is fully scalable: customers choose how many electric vehicles form part of the pilot.
LeasePlan will also facilitate the implementation of charging infrastructure at customers’ offices and employees’ homes.
Wherever possible, LeasePlan will work with partners to ensure the charging infrastructure is supplied with 100 per cent renewable energy. Carbon offsetting will also be available for the non-electric cars that do not form part of the pilot.
The full pilot will be available in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal and the UK from December, with a further rollout planned for Italy, Spain and Sweden in the first quarter of 2018.
CEO Tex Gunning: “We see an increasing demand for electric vehicle fleets from corporate companies that want to lower their overall emissions and help tackle climate change.
“As part of our 2030 Sustainability Strategy, LeasePlan is fully committed to helping these customers make the switch. We’re therefore delighted to be launching our electric vehicle pilot program for large corporate organisations at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn.
“Making the switch to an electric fleet is one of the simplest ways for companies to rapidly lower their emissions and help tackle climate change – and we are committed to facilitating those companies that want to make the transition.”
