Hyundai has made a commitment to increase the supply of electric cars (EVs) to the UK which will help businesses wanting to make the switch to zero emission driving.
The benefits are significant for business drivers: there is 0% company car tax this financial year, increasing to 1% and then 2% until 2024/25.
Hyundai has confirmed that it will supply thousands of electric vehicles in 2020 as it aims to become one of the nation’s largest providers of electric cars. Customers looking for an all-electric Hyundai can order their car now with delivery in as little as a few days.
The key models for many business users will be the Kona Electric SUV and IONIQ Electric , although there are also plug-in hybrid and hybrid versions available, too.
The Kona Electric has a range of 180 miles if you choose the 100kW battery version, or with the bigger 150kW battery the Kona reaches 278 miles on a charge.
Ashley Andrew, the managing director of Hyundai Motor UK, explained to Gateway2Lease:
"Ever since we began offering our pioneering electric vehicles in the UK, we have been overwhelmed by demand for them. This year, we can deliver more electric vehicles than ever thanks to a much-improved supply that not only delivers for customers but also helps in our goal of becoming one of the largest suppliers of electric vehicles in the UK."
There’s more to come, too. Later in the year Hyundai will extend its electrified range with the introduction of a plug-in hybrid version of its large Santa Fe SUV.
