Our sister company Shrewsbury based leasing broker 1st Choice Leasing encourages businesses to ‘Go Green’ by considering Electric Vehicles for their fleet requirements.

1st Choice Leasing of Jupiter House on Shrewsbury Business Park has started a campaign to encourage their new and existing motor fleet clients to consider Electric Vehicles. With the huge increase in both desire and options for Electric Vehicles across the UK, they want to promote a greener generation of vehicle leasing by asking their clients to choose these types of cars and vans over their usual petrol or diesel counterparts.

Sales Manager at 1st Choice Leasing, Calum Starling says “We believe there are lots of benefits of choosing to lease Electric Vehicles, like the miniscule running and maintenance costs compared to that of a petrol or diesel, or perhaps desire to do your bit for the environment by reducing your carbon emissions, and if you’ve been thinking about investing in an EV, then leasing means you can avoid the higher price tag that these vehicles come with when buying outright. With the technology developing so quickly, improved models are hitting the market at a fast rate. So, leasing for a fixed period means you can avoid tying your money up in a car that could quickly become outdated.”

“On top of the fact that EVs are cheaper and easier to run and maintain, since April 2020, the changes that were brought about by HM Revenue & Customs’ Review of WLTP and vehicle taxes mean that the BiK tables for company cars and tax on electric vehicles (EVs) have now gone. Which now makes EVs a much more feasible and attractive company car option.” says Callum Watkins, Director at 1st Choice Leasing. “Charging options are becoming more accessible too, there has been a huge increase in locations for charging across the country, we have nearly 20 just around our local town of Shrewsbury.”

1st Choice Leasing was launched January 2020 and provides impartial leasing advice and solutions across the UK and is a registered member of the BVRLA – The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association. The independent vehicle leasing brokerage offers a full range of commercial and personal leasing opportunities to meet the needs of individuals and businesses of all sizes nationally.

1st Choice Leasing has recently invested in a new website that highlights an entire section offering Electric Vehicles to encourage users to take a look at the EV options available.
