Scottish Water implements EV salary sacrifice scheme


Having already transitioned their company car scheme to fully electric, Scottish Water is now offering a salary sacrifice scheme to help employees obtain an affordable path into a new electric vehicle (EV).
The scheme from Tusker allows employees to drive fully insured and maintained electric car for a fixed monthly cost that’s taken from their gross salary, before tax and national insurance contributions are calculated. 
Since the scheme’s launch in August, almost 1,000 Scottish Water employees have already signed up to look at cars on Tusker’s salary sacrifice scheme. 

All of the latest electric models are available through Tusker, with vehicles to suit every need. From compact city cars to family SUVs capable of traveling long distances between charges, all the leading manufacturers can be selected via Tusker’s salary sacrifice scheme. Tusker is also keen to help those transitioning from combustion to electric with helpful tools such as an online charging point locator and a journey cost calculator.
Alison Argall, Business Development Director at Tusker comments, “We’re seeing more and more businesses with net zero targets working with us to move their employees into zero-emission vehicles – the car scheme can help with removing large amounts of emissions from the car parks of organisations, rather than just those in company cars, so it’s an easy win.”
