Jaguar has completed a deal with the Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to deliver a fleet of 700 I-Pace electric vehicles for use by public sector staff acrous the country.
The agreement will see staff from more than 200 organisations have access to lease the electric Jaguar over a three-year period, using the existing salary sacrifice scheme.

The I-Pace demonstrates our latest electric vehicle technology, developed here in the UK to deliver clean, sustainable and efficient transport.”
