Latest Leasing Survey shows emissions fall as EVs rise

The BVRLA’s Quarterly Leasing Survey shows that the average CO2 emissions for members’ new car registrations fell below 100g/km for the first time as electric vehicles represent a growing proportion of the fleet mix.

This latest survey reports an average CO2 emission of 98g/km compared to the UK car fleet of 114.2g/km, highlighting the green credentials of the leasing sector. 

This will undoubtedly make leasing an attractive option for those living or working in towns and cities introducing Clean Air Zones, as they assess their suitable vehicle options.  

Nearly one-fifth of leasing members’ fleet now has some form of electrification with 5% of the car fleet being pure EV and 15% hybrid. This figure is only set to grow as BVRLA rental and leasing members have pledged to register 400,000 new battery electric cars and vans per year by 2025.
