Hear from drivers who have made the switch to an electric car with our salary sacrifice scheme. From ordering via our app, to how much they're now saving on running costs.
When petrol prices became astronomical during the fuel shortage, Farooq decided it was time to ditch the diesel and go electric.
🌳 I wanted to be more environmentally friendly and get rid of my diesel car as soon as possible. I had always wanted to own a Tesla as my first electric vehicle, but the price to buy outright was really high and normal leasing involves putting down a large deposit.
I can’t have a charger installed at my property, but my workplace currently has 2 chargers and they are increasing that number to 20 in the near future. There are also a couple of public charging points near my home, so I can reliably top-up using those if I need to.
Thankfully, with salary sacrifice, Farooq was able to get behind the wheel of his dream electric car without having to pay any deposit at all. Plus, he’s now saving £100s every month compared to a normal lease price.
💚 I’d definitely recommend. I have already started talking about it to my family and friends. Salary sacrifice is a great scheme and every one should reap the benefits from it.
For Allan, the switch to electric is all about playing his part in creating a greener future for all. With a young family, Allan wants to make sure that he’s helping his kids’ future – and save money every time he drives.
⚡At first, I was a bit worried about charging my new car but I got a charger fitted at home and there are loads of chargers available around the country which put my mind at ease.
🌳 It’s definitely knowing that I’m doing my bit for the environment and helping my children’s future. Even making such a small change helps the environment – and it helps that electricity is cheaper than fuel!
💚 I have already told fellow employees how good and easy to do it is and how loveelectric does all the hard work! All I had to do was choose the car. It was so easy and fuss free, and my car was available so quickly, too.
Through the Ford charging network, Ricci saves over £80 each time he charges his car - even without access to off-street parking. We sat down with Ricci to hear about his new Mach-e and adjusting to EV life.
🌳 Not only is it better for the environment, but it also helps with the cost of leasing and running my car. It’s a big win, especially in the current climate!
⚡ Cost is, of course, a big one: it used to cost me £121 to fill my old car. Now, charging my car on a public network fast charger to get the equivalent mileage costs me around £40 (plus a coffee!). I imagine it’s even cheaper when charging at home. Plus, with an electric car, there isn’t the worry of clutches, timing belts, spark plugs etc.
💚 I would totally recommend the scheme to anyone interested in driving electric, and I always mention it when I am out visiting clients. Thank you, loveelectric!
