The BVRLA Fleet Sustainability Credentials show that the rental and leasing sectors are already leading the transition to cleaner transport. 100% of rented, leased and car club cars are Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) compliant and 99% of rented vans (96% of leased vans) are as well.
The diversity in decarbonisation trajectories highlighted in the BVRLA's Road to Zero Report Card 2021 is also confirmed by these latest Fleet Sustainability credentials:
- Cars: Less than 1% (0.7%) of the total UK car parc is currently zero emission, whereas 22% of salary sacrifice cars, 8% of company cars and 7% of car club cars are BEVs. However, the unique decarbonisation challenges faced by the car rental sector is reflected in the fact that its BEV fleet currently stands at just 0.6%.
- Vans: One percent of the current leased LCV market is made up of battery electric vans, which in turn make up just 0.4% of the wider van parc. Again, the rental market is behind, with just 0.1% of its fleet battery electric.
