SELECT Car Leasing is refreshing of its Select Electric arm to meet the needs of an increasing customer base.

Launched in 2020, Select Electric has been Select Car Leasing’s dedicated electric web presence, offering a selection of hybrid and electric vehicles.

The revamp follows a successful time at the British Motor Show earlier this year, with the firm sponsoring the Select Electric Motor Show as part of the event.

Now, the Reading-based leasing broker has revealed how a recruitment drive has brought together a specialised new team, and the website has been revised to include everything from advice and information on grants, batteries, and costs, to the latest news from the EV industry.

Shane Pither, head of automotive innovation, said:

“At the end of 2020, the government announced a ban on the sale and leasing of new petrol and diesel vehicles from 2030 onwards.

“Since then, Select Car Leasing has noticed a considerable uptick in enquiries into electric cars and vans. The government has sent a strong signal. And people are starting to adjust their vehicle leasing habits. We want to be at the forefront of that change.”

David Lewis, electric lead at Select, said: “Select Electric was the spur to transform our approach to EV from top to bottom. We’re revamping our website to help visitors work out whether electric motoring is right for them.

“For example, we have a new electric guide section, full of tips and advice on topics such as battery range, charging, potential fuel savings, and deciphering the complicated jargon around electric vehicles. All of which are presented to our leasing consultants on a weekly rota as a training tool.

“We’ve also been on a recruitment drive and now have an expert team of leasing consultants focused purely on electric vehicle leads. They live and breathe the world of electrified motoring, and their passion and knowledge is inspiring our customers to make the jump to environmentally friendly driving now.”

Founded in 2004, Select Car Leasing has a fleet of more than 50,000 vehicles and more than 250 staff nationally.
