Founded eleven years ago, runyourfleet.com has grown year on year to become one of the largest fleet services providers in the UK and now manages more than 30,000 vehicles on behalf of over 1,200 businesses. A disrupter to the fleet management and vehicle leasing market, the team at runyourfleet.com are now supporting many UK businesses as they transition their fleet into electric vehicles.
According to figures released in January 2022, more than one in four new cars sold in the UK are now electrified in some way. The sale of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) rocketed last year, with more registered than over the previous five years combined.
The UK is very much among the leaders on an international scale when it comes to car fleet electrification with government on course to ban the sale of new cars and vans powered entirely by petrol and diesel by 2030, and to ban the sale of new hybrid vehicles by 2035.
There can no longer be any doubt that the world is going electric. This is evidenced by nearly every international car manufacturer ramping up production and introducing battery powered vehicles.
We here at runyourfleet.com are committed to making our business more sustainable and one of the steps we have taken to achieve this is by ensuring that all our company vehicles are fully electric by the end of 2022. We understand the importance of minimising our environmental impact and acknowledge the effect combustion engines have on our local air quality and the wider ecosystem. As a result, we want to help other companies follow suit.
More and more enquiries we are receiving relate to fully electric vehicles as lowering a business’s environmental impact is top of the list for most eco-conscious Directors and employees. EVs provide environmental benefits thanks to their lack of tailpipe emissions, but they also provide a substantial saving in running costs. Most electric vehicles are cheaper to run than their ICE counterparts; partly because of cheaper refuelling costs but also because they have fewer moving parts and can cost less to service.
Other benefits include enabling employees to enter ultra-low emission zones (ULEZ’s) without incurring costs, coupled with the reduced vehicle tax adding to the list of incentives.
It’s easy to see why a full electric future is fast becoming the present.
