Lex Autolease has announced that it will offer a £1,000 contribution towards the cost of the first 1,000 pure-electric vehicles it leases from 2019.
The leasing firm’s £1 million backing expects that it will help double the size of its EV fleet, and help customers achieve 25 million zero tailpipe emission miles over the next five years.
Announced at the Zero Emission Vehicle Summit today in Birmingham, the funding is available to personal or business customers picking a pure-EV.
Tim Porter, managing director of Lex Autolease, said: “In July, the government set out its ambition for at least half of new vehicles to be ultra-low emission by 2030. Our announcement today highlights our commitment to supporting this ambition and the role we, as the UK’s leading vehicle leasing provider, can play in helping to make it happen.
