Top 5 picks for company EVs in 2021

Choosing the right vehicles for your company’s fleet can be a difficult decision. When you’re considering how best to future-proof your company and make a sensible business choice for your CSR, electric vehicles offer a great solution. To help you make the best decision for your business, here are our top 5 picks for your next company EV:

Cupra el-Born

Launching in 2021, the sporty hatchback will be Seat’s first electric model although releasing under their new performance brand, Cupra. 

With its projected 310 mile range on a single charge and rapid charging giving you 50% range within just 30 minutes, the el-Born is a great choice for your business fleet. 

Whilst we wait for the official 0-60mph time, Cupra are quoting a 0-31mph time of 2.9sec, making it quick off the mark with its 77kWh battery pack. The el-Born is certainly a model to keep your eye on when you’re considering your next company car. 

Tesla Model 3

When it comes to top of the range EVs, you need look no further than Elon Musk’s Tesla brand. 

The Model 3 is the cheapest model from the manufacturer, but it is no less impressive than the more expensive counterparts. The Long Range edition has a range of 348 miles, can do 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 145mph.

As with any Tesla, the interior is visually stunning. The premium finish can give your business drive the wow factor.  

Audi e-tron Technik 50 Quattro

If you’re familiar with an Audi for your company car, you should consider upgrading your fleet to the e-tron Technik in 2021. 

This all-electric car has a 249 mile range and despite its 4×4 size, it goes from 0-60 in 6.8 seconds and certainly gives the sportier electric vehicles a run for their money. 

The 71kWh battery and hi-tech interior design, with a 10.1 inch ‘infotainment system’ and 12 inch ‘Virtual Cockpit’ digital driver’s display, make this model stand out from the crowd and a perfect family car option for your business fleet.

VW iD.3 Pro S

The first electric vehicle of many to come from VW, the ID.3 is intended to rival the Nissan Leaf and BMW i3. It’s a crucial release for VW and as such, the ID.3 is fairly similar to what you’d expect from a Golf. 

Whilst it may look like a standard five-door hatchback at first glance, especially borrowing the entertainment system from the newest Golf, the top-end performance is anything but standard. The 78kWh battery will provide a Tesla-matching 341 miles range.

The top speed of 99mph and 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds means the ID.3 isn’t the quickest car on the market, but if your business fleet requires a cost-effective long-range vehicle, the VW deserves a look-in.

Mercedes-Benz EQS

The German manufacturer is coming to compete with the Tesla Model S, as well as the upcoming Porsche Taycan. Two electric motors will give it 469bhp and likely acceleration from 0-60mph in roughly 4.5 seconds.

A gargantuan 435 mile range and expected to cost from around £80,000, with a panoramic sunroof and futuristic interior, Mercedes are really pushing their vehicle to the top spec of the EV market. 

Advanced driver assistance tech will compete directly with Tesla’s offering and with the potential addition of the brand new rear-wheel steering fitted into the S-series too, the EQS is well worth a test drive if you’re considering the Model S as part of your business fleet.
