Is there such a thing as the perfect EV fleet car?

It’s the million-dollar question. You can quickly get lost in a minefield of configurators and comparison sites as you try and find the vehicle that is right for your business.

You want a bit of that and something from this and before you know it, you’ve sewn together a patchwork vehicle that doesn’t exist.

This can be even more difficult when considering an electric vehicle to add to your fleet, with so many factors to consider.

We’d all like the biggest battery, the longest range and the latest technology, but in an ever-changing market, fleet managers have had to be agile to find the best deal.

The truth is, there is no one perfect vehicle for every business or every driver.

The needs of your business will vary from the next, but with the right considerations, we’ll make sure your fleet vehicles tick all the right boxes for you.

Battery Size

Your fleet needs a vehicle that can go the distance. Picking out a vehicle with large usable battery capacity will be a key consideration when you’re building your fleet. 

Ford Mustang Mach-e

The Ford Mustang Mach-e is one of the market-leading electric SUVs, with a massive 98.7kWh battery.

It may be Mustang by name, but this is not the same muscle car you might be familiar with. In one of the most engaging electric vehicles available, it offers zero-emission driving with substance and style.

Model dependent, you have a claimed range of up to 372 miles and the ability to recoup 73 miles in 10 minutes, making a hugely convenient but also practical choice for your business.

Jaguar I-Pace

Another stylish electric SUV in the form of the Jaguar I-Pace. It packs a punch with a sizeable 90kWh battery pack that helps deliver some of the best driving dynamics of any EV.

Boasting a claimed range of up to 292 miles, a hugely practical 656 litres of load space, and thrilling power and dynamics, the electrifying I-Pace is a true driver’s car.

With character and style that offers a stylish alternative to some of the big German brands, the all-electric Jaguar I-Pace is an excellent option for your fleet.

BMW i4

If you’re in the market for a big battery EV but don’t want or need the space of an SUV, the BMW i4 is as assured as they come.

It is one of the more subtle EVs on the road today, sharing many design similarities to the 4 Series it is largely based on. Powered by an 83.9 kWh battery pack, select models can travel up to 365 miles from a single charge.

The i4 M50 might be the headline act, but the BMW i4 eDrive40 is a worthwhile addition to any fleet.

Electric range

For a seamless transition to a fully electric fleet, your business will need to supply drivers with vehicles without the added the range anxiety.

Such is the competitiveness of the EV sector these days, there are now an array of attractive options for any business needing a long-range EV.

Mercedes-Benz EQS

One of the real showstoppers in the EV world, the Mercedes-Benz EQS is as good as they come.

No EV can travel further, with Mercedes claiming that this luxury EV saloon is capable of 453 miles on a single charge, thanks to its gigantic 120kWh battery pack.

Cutting edge technology, S-Class levels of luxury, rapid charge times and an – as of yet – unbeatable range, this is a pristine EV that will leave a lasting impression.

BMW iX xDrive 50

BMW are building a burgeoning reputation of developing some of the best electric vehicles in the business.

The iX xDrive50 M Sport in particular promises a claimed range of 382 miles and a rapid charging time of 35 minutes.

Thanks to the substantial 111.5 kWh battery pack, the iX is capable of up to 523 horsepower, perfect for getting your drivers where they need to be.

Volkswagen ID.3 Pro S

Smooth, responsive and fun, the Volkswagen ID.3 Pro S is an all-round competent electric car, continuing Volkswagen’s reputation for reliability.

Capable of an impressive 339 miles with its 77 kWh battery, one charge will cover your drive into work and back without that nagging range anxiety.

Offering strong performance and fast charging times, everything is now possible in this fantastic EV.

Charge times

Your fleet not only needs vehicles that can go the distance but that can be charged quickly too.

There are plenty of fast charging electric cars around now that’ll make journeys more comfortable and quicker for your fleet drivers.

Hyundai IONIQ 6 Long Range AWD

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 Long Range AWD is a one-of-a-kind sophisticated streamliner. Thanks to its cutting-edge electric drive system, the Ioniq 6 can deliver a driving range of up to 338 miles.

Your fleet won’t need to wait around much thanks to its 800-volt battery system which allows for ultra-rapid charging that can recoup 218 miles in just 15 minutes.

Unmistakably unique, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 would be a valuable addition to any fleet.

Kia EV6 Long Range 2WD

Boasting market leading technology, the Kia EV6 is a fully electric crossover that’s ready for the future.

Combined with the 77.4 kWh battery pack, the electric powertrain is capable of up to 314 miles and has 321 horsepower.

The EV6’s 800 V high-speed charging system means you can charge the battery from 10-80% in just 18 minutes. In just 4.5 minutes you’ll get 62 miles of range, so you can keep your stops short and sweet.

Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor

You can go anywhere in the Tesla Model 3 Long Range, with its excellent range of up to 374 miles.

But when you need it, charge-time isn't cumbersome. The Tesla Model 3 can recoup up to 172 miles in just 15 minutes at Supercharger locations.

With the broad network of high-speed charging, exceptional range and automatic battery preconditioning, you’ll spend even more time on the road.


We know that your fleet vehicles need to suit your business needs but ultimately, the price has to be right too.

MINI Electric

Offering the same feel-good joy that the original hatchback is famous for, the electric variant comes with the excitement and efficiency of being a fully electric car with its 145-mile range.

Available in three trims: Level 1, 2 and 3, prices for the MINI Electric start from £29,000 for the entry level trim and rise up to £34,500 for the Level 3 edition.

Spec’d to perfection, MINI has thought about every last detail, making the small hatchback one of the most affordable (but still all-round) EVs in the market.

MG4 EV Long Range

Being MG’s first fully electric hatchback car, the MG4 EV is an affordable choice with an array of awesome and innovative features.

The long-range version means you should benefit from up to 281 miles of range, it can charge from 10-80% in as little as 35 minutes, plus it’s crammed with connectivity and driver assistance systems.

Prices for the Fiat 500 Electric start at £26,195 and rise to £34,195 for the top spec.

Safety rating

Keeping your drivers and their cars safe is your main concern as a Fleet Manager, and this starts with the vehicles your choose for them. A highly rated fleet offers peace of mind to you and your drivers, and maximises wellbeing all-round.

Tesla Model Y

Rated as one of the safest cars on the road, the Tesla Model Y scored five stars during its Euro NCAP safety tests.

It also received a 97% score for adult safety and a 98% score in the safety assist category, which tests factors like speed assistance, lane support, occupant status monitoring and autonomous emergency braking.


The CUPRA Born ranks equally as highly when it comes to Euro NCAP safety figures.

This stylish Spanish EV will do more than simply add flair and style to your fleet. With an adult occupant score of 93% and a safety assist score of 80%, it is one of the best performing EVs available in the current Euro NCAP system.

Boasting low BiK rates, agile and nimble handling, the CUPRA Born makes for a cost-effective addition for any business looking for small hatchbacks to add to their fleet.

Volvo C40 Recharge

Building on the fantastic reputation that Volvo developed with their range of SUVs, the C40 is the brilliant electric alternative to the XC40.

Scoring five stars during its Euro NCAP safety tests, the C40 Recharge has a 92% adult safety score and an 89% safety assist rating.

The high-quality interiors feel very familiar to the Volvo brand, while the sloping roofline gives the C40 its own unique design.
