Things to consider when hiring electric vehicles

To determine which rental option is right for your business, it is best to seek advice, but it could be useful to consider the following:

  • What type of journeys will your vehicle need to be used for? Short hops around towns and cities where charge points are plenty, or longer journeys?
  • Are you looking to hire a specific electric vehicle? Not all models are currently available, but we can help you choose an alternative that is suitable.
  • Are there going to be charging facilities at your drivers’ destinations or along their routes?
  • Is there enough time in driver schedules to factor in the time it takes to recharge when necessary?
  • Do your drivers have charge points or access to public ones locally?
