JCT600 VLS gains Go Ultra Low status

By / 12 months ago / UK News / 1 Comment

JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions (VLS) has been awarded Go Ultra Low company status in recognition of its promotion and use of Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) within its own company car fleet. 

JCT600 VLS MD Paul Walters

JCT600 VLS MD Paul Walters said the company’s ULEV-orientated fleet policy ensures it’s up to speed with the technology.

Launched last year, the Go Ultra Low initiative recognises public and private sector organisations that already use EVs, or offer them to employees as company cars.

In the case of JCT600 VLS, the  leasing and fleet management firm now includes hybrid or fully electric options for all its own company car drivers – conventional diesel or petrol vehicle are only allowed on a strictly exceptional business need basis. The company is also looking at ensuring its whole fleet is fully ULEV or electric by 2019.

Managing director Paul Walters, who has already switched to a BMW 530e, said: “ULEVs are the future. We have had several customers approach us in the wake of the Government’s announcement about the banning of diesel or petrol-only powered cars by 2040. In order to be able to give them the best advice, we have to ensure that we are up to speed and using the technology ourselves.”
