There’s a new way to drive an electric car - it’s called Electric Dreams.
It’s a bit like Cycle to Work - but for electric cars.
Your employees could save up to 40%* on their monthly car costs while driving a brand new zero-emission car - and without costing you a penny to set up*.
Your Electric Dreams lease has everything included to make it low-hassle - maintenance, repairs and tyres; breakdown recovery; road tax and MOT; insurance if you'd like it; and even a £500 end of contract damage waiver to minimise admin and disappointment if there's a small amount of damage when the car is returned.
As your employee may be getting their first electric car, we also include a smart home chargepoint, installed by our sister company Octopus Energy Services, and enough free electricity for an average UK driver to travel for free for a year if they are with Which? recommended supplier, Octopus Energy.
Even if your employee doesn't have a driveway, we have them covered with access to the Electric Juice Network.
You give your employee use of the car in return for a sacrifice from their gross salary - before income tax and national insurance. There is some company car tax to pay (Benefit in Kind) but the government has set it to 1-2% for electric cars until 2025.
As a company, you also make savings on national insurance. Some of our clients have chosen to put it aside for a rainy day, install charge points at the office, or put it back into the scheme to make it even more attractive for employees to make the switch to electric.
Best of all, Electric Dreams is open to companies of all shapes and sizes**.
That’s good for business, good for your team and good for the planet too!

Save 30-40% on your monthly car costs for a brand new electric car.
You get the use of a brand new car in return for some of your gross salary - before income tax and national insurance.
As the car is a benefit, you do pay some company car tax. However, the government has set the company car tax for electric cars to just 1% for this year (compared to >30% for many petrol and diesel cars). In fact, it increases to just 2% for electric cars until 2025.
