Arval Go electric

For today, tomorrow and the future

Get charged up with an Electric Vehicle

With 2% BIK rating this tax year (2022), improvements in battery technology, longer ranges, a growing network of public charge points (and the option of using the free charging points at work), leasing an Electric Vehicle is an increasingly popular and cost-effective choice. Electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles are the most tax effective vehicles available through the Ignition scheme.
In teaming up with our partner, we can also provide the latest technology in home charging points and energy tariffs.

Other reasons to go electric

Environmental

Due to electric vehicles having no CO2 emissions and hybrids having reduced emissions, choosing to go electric as opposed to a petrol or diesel vehicle can really help the environment and improve air quality.

Reduced running costs

As well as much lower costs to fuel a car with electricity compared to petrol or diesel, running costs may be reduced due to the lower cost to service and maintain electrified vehicles as they have fewer moving parts.

Financial incentives

With road tax, London Congestion Charge and proposed Ultra Low Emissions Zones (ULEZs) all favouring vehicles with the lowest CO2 emissions, there are tangible financial reasons to go electric with your vehicle choice.

THREE TYPES OF ELECTRIFIED VEHICLE

Hybrid Vehicle

(HEV)

This has a small battery, electric motor and combustion engine. It will travel a few miles on the electric power and then switch back to the combustion engine. A combination of the engine and regenerative braking will recharge the battery.

A few miles

Petrol tank

No charge necessary

Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle

(PHEV)

This has a larger battery, electric motor and combustion engine. A combination of the engine and regenerative braking will help to recharge the battery like an HEV. However, you will need to plug in this vehicle to fully recharge the battery to deliver the benefits of the electric range.

20 - 40 miles

Petrol tank

This will take 4 - 8 hours to charge on normal '3 pin' socket

Battery Electric Vehicle

(BEV)

This has no combustion engine and a much bigger battery. This must be charged to use the vehicle. You must plan journeys to ensure that they are within the vehicle’s max range or plan routes with charging facilities along the way.

Up to several hundred miles

No petrol tank

Charge necessary

Home charge point solution

Charge effortlessly from the comfort of home

Home charge point solution

Charge effortlessly from the comfort of home

Thanks to our partnerships we can offer smart charge points homes throughout the UK.
This is an important consideration as with a fully electric vehicle there is no back up once you have run out of battery. Always be aware of the charge points closest to you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is salary sacrifice?
This is an employer provided scheme where you can agree to give up part of your cash pay or salary in exchange for services or goods.
These are well established with “Bike to Work” and pension schemes. The difference with this is that in exchange for part of your salary, your employer will agree to provide you with an insured company vehicle that is also maintained and on which road tax is paid.

You will no longer pay tax or National Insurance (NI) on the salary that you sacrifice. You will however pay tax on the company car that you receive in return, but depending on the car that you choose, you can minimise this cost. You will not pay any NI costs on the car.

This salary sacrifice product is provided as part of your flexible benefits scheme.
Is salary sacrifice right for me?
In order to benefit from the tax savings, HMRC requires that the salary sacrifice is a change to your terms and conditions, reducing your contractual salary, rather than something employees can simply opt in and out of. For this reason, employees are required to enter the Scheme on a longer term basis. Entering into any long-term financial commitment should be considered thoroughly. Procuring a new car via salary sacrifice is no different.

You should satisfy yourself that a company car will meet your lifestyle needs throughout the duration of the contract and that you understand the associated obligations.
