FLEET Alliance is riding high on the move to electrification.

Plug-in cars – including PHEV as well as pure electric – represented 52% of new car orders placed with the Glasgow broker in the last 12 months.

It is very apparent that the switch to electric vehicles is accelerating with ever-increasing numbers of both corporate and retail buyers ordering EVs. We are seeing rapid growth in EV orders, especially in recent months, and expect this to continue throughout this year.

Andy said that plug-ins were running at 59% of all corporate orders, with EVs at 26% of that total.

On the personal leasing side, he said that the company has seen 29% of all orders being plug-ins.

The trend has really accelerated. Personal orders for EVs were just 7% last January while this year 28% of all personal new car orders are for pure EVs alone.

Andy pointed to some of the key drivers for the move to electrification being tax and and a wider ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) agenda for corporates, while he thought November’s COP26 climate conference had helped raise awareness in the personal sphere.

Despite the semiconductor shortage impacting on vehicle availability, Andy said Fleet Alliance was on course for a record year.
