On 18 November Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that new cars and vans powered wholly by petrol and diesel will not be sold in the UK from 2030. This timeframe is 10 years sooner than earlier estimates and presents both opportunities and challenges for businesses who run fleets. 

EMTEC’s advice is that the time to start planning for the future is NOW!

Our team combine their mathematical, automotive engineering and leasing expertise to deliver a consultancy-based analysis of existing fleet costs and emission levels aligned to all change options available.

These skills help our clients plan and implement cost effective and timely transformation plans that meet UK Accounting Regulations for Environmental Carbon Reporting and this newly announced deadline of 2030. It is worth pointing out here that the announcement did confirm that some hybrids will still be allowed. 

How can EMTEC specifically help your business to plan ahead for the transition to Electric Vehicles (EVs)

We work with businesses to provide a Whole of life cost analysis for conventional vehicles vs EVs. This analysis includes finance and fuel costs, service, maintenance and repair (SMR), insurance Benefit-in-Kind Tax, Class 1A National Insurance Contributions (NICs) and Plug-in Car Grants. 

Assessing WLC now and in the coming years will enable your business to plan for the transition to a fully alternative fleet armed with important facts, figures and analysis. 

Our team’s extensive knowledge of what manufacturers are offering now, and what they plan to offer in the future, is also a huge benefit for our clients as it ensures the switch to an electric fleet doesn’t take a ‘one size fits all’ approach. It is important to investigate best vehicle replacement for your business and for your people. We work with businesses to focus on relative performance, usage and financial values among many other things. 

Demand for electric vehicles is already high and of course with 2030 now a firm ‘finish line,’ it will only continue to rise. EMTEC is able to support businesses with replacement Electric Vehicle sourcing. 

Timing of transitions will be critical to keep up with supply and demand issues that will undoubtedly occur. Working with our partner company OVL Group Ltd, who have over 30 years of experience in the vehicle leasing and contract hire market, we have access to a team of experts who have built up powerful relationships with the major manufacturers and contract hire companies.
