NHS signs EV fleet deal with JLR


Jaguar Land Rover UK and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust have confirmed a fleet of 700 Jaguar I-Pace vehicles for public sector staff across the country.

The agreement via Northumbria Healthcare’s NHS Fleet Solutions, will give staff from more than 200 organisations access to lease the Jaguar’s all-electric I-Pace over a three-year period.

Sir James Mackey, chief executive, Northumbria Healthcare, said: “We are delighted to be working with Jaguar Land Rover UK, this is a great deal for NHS and public sector staff and delivers genuine benefit to our patients.

“To have a fleet of cars that are fully electric demonstrates our on-going commitment to making decisions that reduce our impact on the environment and help us become greener.”

The fleet of zero-emission I-Pace vehicles will be available to public sector staff at organisations that are signed up to NHS Fleet Solutions from April 2020.

Employees will pay for their vehicles via salary sacrifice.
