The last four years have seen a remarkable surge in demand for electric vehicles (EV) in the UK. New registrations of plug-in cars grew dramatically from 3,500 in 2013 to over 107,000 by the beginning of August 2017. The UK has also seen significant growth in the number of pure-electric and plug-in hybrid models available with most of the top manufacturers offering electric vehicles as part of their model range.
Charging points are already a planning requirement in London, all new developments with five parking spaces or more must be equipped with at least 20% of those spaces with electric car charging points.
Businesses that provide electric or hybrid company cars to employees help demonstrate their environmental credentials to clients and shareholders, they’re also significantly cheaper to run and can allow employees to make generous savings on tax. Currently the benefit in kind (BIK) rate for electric vehicles is 0%, with other traditional cars being 20%or more. Our charge units are inexpensive to run and require very little servicing.

Made from the highest quality component’s and combining an extensive unique range servicing and reliability is not an issue.
