What is EV salary sacrifice?
It is like cycle-to-work, but for electric vehicles. You give up some of your gross monthly pay for a new EV, and can save up to 40% on the monthly cost thanks to saving on National Insurance and Income Tax.
Everything you need to join the electric revolution, including:
· A brand-new EV with no upfront costs
· Maintenance, road tax, MOT
· AA breakdown
· 5-star service
