Vauxhall’s electric vehicle range has received a tremendous vote of confidence, as one of the UK’s first electricity suppliers, Edmundson Electrical, has invested in three Amperas.
The cars offer exceptional fuel efficiency (234.5 MPG) and comfortable journeys for company executives. Barking office branch manager, Jo Ellis, said: “I rely on my car for work and cover relatively high mileage each month including a daily commute of over 35 miles from my home to the office.
“The E-REV technology in the Ampera means I get all of the benefits of an electric car but with none of the disadvantages such as range-anxiety. It feels just like a normal car.”
Vauxhall’s extended-range electric vehicle (E-REV) has incredibly low CO2 emissions of only 27 g/km. Lease a Vauxhall Ampera Hatchback for your own fleet through UK Carline – car leasing deals are available starting at only £328.93 per month.
Mr Ellis chose Amperas for his fleet, as he remains staunchly committed to the environment. Charging facilities have been installed at Edmundson Electrical’s headquarters, as well as Mr Ellis’ home. Barking’s branch manager isn’t the only executive acquiring an Ampera, though. Danny Fegan, branch manager of the St Helen’s office will be driving one soon as well. The third Ampera will be used by the company’s Twickenham branch.
Despite their ecological motives for investing in Vauxall’s electric vehicles, executives enjoy them for fairly conventional reasons. “Colleagues and friends have also commented on how smooth and quiet the electric motor is and were surprised that it feels like a normal car. I sometimes need to do a 500-mile trip in one day, long journeys are effortless, comfortable and relaxing, and the interior is very refined,” Mr Ellis said.
Vauxhall are pleased that renowned businesses have chosen Amperas to maximise fuel efficiency and keep emissions down, and even happier to know drivers enjoy the comfort and superior handling of their electric range. Fleet marketing and motability manager, Paul Adler, said: “We are delighted that a company with such heritage has chosen to use Vauxhall’s ground-breaking Ampera. I am confident that the company will continue to enjoy the versatility, durability and fuel savings from their Amperas.”
