Electric Moments


In this Electric Moments series we’ve worked with LeasePlan to explore the reality of switching to electric vehicles for both businesses and drivers. Looking at everything from charging and driving efficiently to tax and benefit in kind.

We also hear from people like you who have already made the switch and share their own experiences.

This gives them the ability to make a real difference to the world – and they are seizing the opportunity by putting sustainability at the heart of everything they do.


Simplifying the switch to an electric vehicle

We know more and more people and businesses are considering making the switch to electric, but what is life really like living with electric cars?

In the first episode of a new series with LeasePlan, Robert is joined by Maddie Moate to share their experiences of driving electric as both a long time EV driver and someone who has been driving an electric car for just over a year.

Covering everything from charging and driving efficiently to running costs and tax, in this series we’ll be asking real people to give their honest views on what it’s like to make the switch to electric.

Everything you need to know about charging but were afraid to ask

We know one of the main concerns individuals and businesses have when it comes to making the switch to an electric car is about where and how to charge it.

In the second part of Electric Moments from LeasePlan, Robert is joined by Maddie Moate to run through everything you wanted to know about charging electric cars but were too afraid to ask.

As well as charging at home, public and on-street charging options are increasing rapidly each day and with the introduction of electric forecourts, charging your electric car will get easier and easier.

Making the most of your energy and your battery

Robert and Jack explain how driving electric is different and how you can get the most out of your electric vehicle in this new Electric Moments episode with LeasePlan.

Range is confusing and factors such as the weather, the temperature and the road gradient will all have an affect on the range that is achievable. As a long time EV driver Robert has some helpful driving tips to maximise efficiency and get the best range possible.

Costs and savings of electric vehicle ownership

One of the main reasons we regularly hear for why people can’t make the switch to electric is that electric cars are too expensive, but is this really true?

In the next episode of our Electric Moments series with LeasePlan, Robert talks to Matt Walters, Head of Consultancy Services and Customer Value at LeasePlan, about the total ownership cost of an EV and how switching to an EV could save you more money than you might realise. It’s true that the initial cost of buying, or leasing, an electric car is typically higher than petrol or diesel cars but significant savings can be made in terms of fuel, maintenance and government grants, incentives and exemptions which can make EVs much cheaper overall.

We also hear from real people about their experiences of driving EVs, how they made the switch and why they’ll never look back.

The natural next steps on your electric car journey

Switching to an EV is often the starting point of a bigger journey for people looking to reduce their environmental impact.

In the next instalment of LeasePlan’s Electric Moments series Robert and Maddie discuss latest research that reveals the power that EV drivers have in championing greener living – and explain how it’s possible to generate, use and store energy more efficiently.

We also speak to real world EV drivers about why they made the switch and other green technologies they have adopted since.

2030 ban on sale of new petrol & diesel cars and vans

In 2030 we will see the biggest ever change to the British automotive market with the ban on the sale of new combustion cars and the ban on hybrids by 2035. Driven by concerns over climate change and air quality, this will be significant step in the ‘green revolution’, but what will it mean for you?

As part of our Electric Moments series with LeasePlan, Robert talks to Matt Walters, Head of Consultancy Services and Customer Value at LeasePlan, about what will happen and when with these bans and why you should start considering your options sooner rather than later.

We also speak to real world EV drivers to find out their experiences of making the switch to electric and why it’s easier than you might think.
