Ford EV trial scheme

Ford recently announced an offer giving business owners the chance to subscribe to its E-Transit vehicles on a monthly subscription basis through its Ford Drive scheme.

The motor manufacturing giant says that, as well as allowing companies to add to their fleets as they need to, the initiative can also give those looking to transition to commercial electric vehicles (EVs) a chance to test their real-world suitability without costly commitments of buying.

Included in the subscription price is a full service, maintenance and repair plan which includes all components, tyres and breakdowns, as well as access to mobile servicing and other benefits.

Ford says the monthly subscription can be carried over indefinitely, with a minimum term of one month and zero deposit being required, and a cancellation period of two weeks.

“For many businesses there are a unique mix of challenges that need to be resolved before they can be confident that an EV is a good investment for their business,” said Richard Balch, Director of Ford Drive UK.

“Ford Drive gives a simple way for them to effectively try before they buy. At the same point, the flexibility and services included in our subscription model also make for a compelling longer-term proposition as some customers are already finding out.”
