BMW i4 front quarter tracking 2022 When it comes to saving cash on company cars, going electric is a no-brainer

If you're wanting to make sure you pick the best electric company car when the list of options lands on your desk, then you've come to the right place. Here we'll pick over the 10 best options for business users looking to make the switch to battery power, or for those wanting to replace their existing zero emissions work wheels.

While overall EV registrations have taken a hit over the last year, sales to businesses continue to boom. For many user choosers, the technology and performance make electric cars a very tempting choice, while fleet managers love the low running costs. However, the biggest reason these types of car are so popular is tax - or rather the lack of it.

Currently, company car drivers who pick an EV benefit from a flat (and very low) benefit-in-kind (BIK) rate of just 2%. As a result, users can easily save 90% or more on their annual tax bill compared to standard petrol and diesel vehicles, even those with a plug-in hybrid element. That's really not to be sniffed at.

However, not all EVs make great company cars. Many of these machines are still used to travel big miles in a day, which means an excellent range and fast charging are vital. Drivers will also be expected to carry clients, so a spacious and comfy interior is a must. And, most importantly, they need to project the right image and cut a dash in the corporate car park.So, here are our 10 best electric company cars.�
