LeasePlan launches EV pilot programme

LeasePlan Corporation N.V., a global leader in fleet management, will announce today the launch of its electric vehicle pilot program for corporate companies.

The announcement will come at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) in Bonn, Germany, marking another step in LeasePlan’s ambition to achieve net zero emissions from its total fleet by 2030.

The program is designed to make it as easy as possible for the growing number of companies that want to make the switch to low-emission vehicles.

The pilot is fully scalable, as customers choose how many electric vehicles form part of the pilot. LeasePlan will also facilitate the implementation of charging infrastructure at customers’ offices and employees’ homes.

CEO Tex Gunning, said ‘We see an increasing demand for electric vehicle fleets from corporate companies that want to lower their overall emissions and help tackle climate change. As part of our 2030 Sustainability Strategy, LeasePlan is fully committed to helping these customers make the switch. We’re therefore delighted to be launching our electric vehicle pilot program for large corporate organizations here at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn. Making the switch to an electric fleet is one of the simplest ways for companies to rapidly lower their emissions and help tackle climate change – and we are committed to facilitating those companies that want to make the transition.’
