Fleet sustainability: a ‘good’ choice
Your journey to carbon zero with electric vehicles
Businesses play a vital role in reducing New Zealand’s carbon emissions. Transitioning to an electric fleet can help us achieve those targets, as well as reduce your own CO2 emissions, lower your operating costs, and enhance your reputation. We can help you meet your carbon objectives and fleet sustainability goals by leasing hybrid, plug-in hybrid or battery electric vehicles. Or if you have a large fleet, we can guide your transition to a low or zero-emission fleet, through our Journey to Carbon Zero program.
Transition your fleet in five steps
Set your carbon strategy
Decide and document what you’re looking to achieve and in what timeframe.
Understand your fleet mission
Define the purpose of your fleet and how it needs to service your business.
Select your vehicle
Choose the right mix of vehicles that work for your organisation.
Charging and infrastructure
Consider how you will charge your vehicles from home, the workplace or public charging to keep your vehicles on the road, as seamlessly as traditional petrol vehicles.
Get your people on board
Engage your team for a smooth transition to a more sustainable fleet.
Reap the benefits of going green
No matter the reason you’re choosing to move to a sustainable fleet, the benefits can really stack up in your favour.
Keep operating costs down
Electric cars generally have lower operating costs than conventional or hybrid vehicles, due to less moving parts.
Electric vehicles produce significantly less CO2 emissions over their lifetime – so your business will be playing its part towards a greener, healthier planet.
Improved brand reputation
Consumers are making more informed decisions about who they buy from based on their sustainably track record. Make the choice easier for your customers by transitioning to more sustainable vehicles – a great way to showcase the values of your business.
Latest technology and brands to market
The range of low and zero emission models is increasing rapidly. More choice and competition among the major manufacturers means more competitive pricing.
Get the Clean Car Discount
The NZ Government’s Clean Car Discount gives rebates for low carbon emitting vehicles registered after 30 June 2023. The rebate value is based on the vehicle’s CO2 emissions – the lower the emissions the bigger the rebate, up to $7,015 for new electric vehicles (EVs).
Rebates apply for vehicles with an emissions rating of 100g (3p-WLTP) or below and include internal combustion engine (ICE) electric vehicles (EVs) mild hybrids (MHEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). It applies only to new and used vehicles registered in NZ for the first time and with a purchase price under $80,000 (including GST and on-road costs)."
