About Fleet Electrification
For one, the high costs of outright ownership of electric cars or vans can often make them prohibitively expensive.
On the other hand, leasing an electric vehicle offers businesses a very cost-effective way of joining the green revolution, with all the usual business leasing benefits combined with great tax incentives and reduced on-road running costs. EVs also help you lower your company’s carbon footprint.
Thanks to our unique partnerships, Select Fleet Solutions can provide electric vehicles from all of the leading vehicle manufacturers. And we’re also perfectly placed to offer you advice and support in choosing the best electric vehicles for your fleet.

Three main types of electric vehicle
As more and more manufacturers reveal their electrically-powered vehicles, there’s never been more choice for lease customers. But how do you know which type of electric vehicle is the most suitable for your needs? Here’s our quick, easy to read guide:
Fully electric (BEVs)
These vehicles are driven purely by one or more electric motors, with no traditional combustion engine at all. Not only are they the cheapest vehicle type to run, they are also zero-emission, which means they represent the best solution for both the local and global environment.
Plug-in hybrid (PHEVs)
Like a fully electric vehicle, a Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) also needs to be plugged in to charge its medium-sized battery. PHEVs have both a traditional petrol/diesel engine as well as the battery. Typically the first 20-40 miles in a PHEV are battery only – then the petrol/diesel engine takes over for longer trips.
Conventional hybrid (HEVs)
Non plug-in hybrid cars combine a standard combustion engine with a smaller battery-powered electric motor. There’s no need to plug in a hybrid electric vehicle – the battery is instead charged partly by the combustion engine and partly via regenerative braking.

Electrify Your Fleet Today
Phase 1 - Evaluation
We conduct a survey to establish the thoughts and needs of you and your drivers. What are your goals? What are your concerns about Electric Vehicles (EVs)? We are here to discuss and offer guidance on all elements of the journey with you.
Phase 2 - Analysis
We have a suite of tools to investigate which vehicles might work best for you. We will look at the Whole Life Cost (WLC) of replacing your current vehicles with hybrids or EVs, analyse your cost savings and see what impact the changes could have on your fleet’s CO2 emissions.
Phase 3 - Transition
We will help you to plan your timescales, discuss the logistics of changing to an electric fleet and examine your charging options. You might wish to make the change gradually over a period of time. Where will the vehicles be charged? What budget should you allow to enable the change?
Phase 4 - Operation
We will help you examine all the options for the ongoing running of an electric fleet. Perhaps electric pool cars would work best for you. Or we can discuss the merits of EV Daily Rental. We can assist with arranging the charging point installation process.
