Electric car and van advice for SMEs

We offer free, impartial and expert advice to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to support the transition of your cars and vans to electric.

Our advice, training opportunities and tools can help your business lower transport costs and vehicle emissions.

The future of cars and vans is zero emission, and the transition is well underway.

The UK is ending the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans from 2030, and many have already made the switch to electric. In 2020, more than 10% of new cars sold in the UK were either fully electric or plug-in hybrid.

Electric vehicles (EVs) offer many benefits for businesses. Not only are they cleaner and much cheaper to run, but they are also quieter, smoother and accelerate faster.

If you work for a local authority in England and would like free, practical support on engaging with local businesses on electric vehicles, please get in touch with the Local Government Support Programme.
