Leasing Options Management Goes Electric26 June 2020
Electric cars are rapidly growing in popularity and availability along with an ever expanding range of options. As part of its ongoing commitment to being environmentally responsible, the management at Leasing Options have updated their petrol and diesel cars for new hybrid and electric vehicles.
The last three additions to the management fleet have all been hybrid and electric vehicles and have included a BMW 530e which is the executive hybrid BMW that has CO2 emissions of 38g/km (WLTP figure) and an all-electric range of 27 miles.
The second member of the fleet is the all-electric Hyundai Ioniq. This was one of Leasing Options bestselling Electric car of 2019. The Ioniq is one of the cheapest all electric cars available to lease and comes with an electric range of 193 miles.
The final new addition to the fleet was the incredible Jaguar I Pace. The Model X rival from Jaguar is an easy favourite of all the Electric cars available. It comes with a high level of spec and decent 273 mile range from the battery.
In line with the changes to the Leasing Options fleet, the company has installed two twin-charging stations at the HQ which will be made available for visitors and staff.
Choosing the charging points was a very important process. The technology in electric cars is advancing every day from the range on a single charge, charging speed or more recent developments in the longevity of the batteries.
The impressive electric charging stations are three phase 22kw 32 amp units, meaning they can charge four vehicles at any one time at the rate of 22kw per hour. This is one of the most advanced charging options available currently and will allow the staff to charge to full capacity over the course of the working day when at the office.
This forms part of Leasing Options’ ongoing future proofing of the business which will see additional plans to extend the fleet to be fully electric.
