THE Harrogate based broker, Synergy Car Leasing, says the majority of its customers want to drive cars featuring some form of electrification.

To coincide with World EV Day (09 September 2020), Synergy surveyed its customers to establish the likelihood of a move to an electrified vehicle, whether hybrid or full EV.

While established concerns about EVs were raised – typically battery range, charging infrastructure and cost – 75% of the respondents said that were ‘very likely’ or ‘likely’ to consider an electric or hybrid vehicle as their next lease car. 

Key considerations for going electric were environmental concerns, to save money on fuel costs and to reduce company car tax.

Vehicle manufacturers across the board are now offering a greater choice of electric vehicles with longer battery ranges than ever before. With many people now mixing remote and office working and therefore driving fewer miles each week, or moving into a car to use less public transport, there is a great opportunity to take advantage of the green agenda.

Parkinson added that the car leasing industry was well positioned to drive forward the electric car revolution.  He said the company was seeing more businesses and owner managers wanting to take advantage of the attractive BIK electric car rates, while private individuals expressed a green agenda and a desire to reduce fuel costs.

“There are some excellent new electric and hybrid cars in the marketplace,” he added.
