Now and next: fleets, company car drivers and plug-in vehicles

It is widely acknowledged that plug-in cars represent a clean and sustainable future for companies and drivers in the UK.

Fleets and company car drivers have been among the most eager adopters of such vehicles to date. Many already benefit from the lower running costs and the environmental cache of operating them.

The switch from petrol or diesel cars to alternative fuels is rarely straightforward, though, and fleet operators and company car drivers frequently face obstacles on the road to plug-in vehicle adoption, which is why E.ON and Business Car sought to air the views of those tackling such issues.

We conducted an online survey of fleet decision makers and company car drivers, seeking feedback from those who either had direct experience of operating plug-in vehicles or were seriously considering adopting them.
