A collection of our cars


I've long been interested in EV's, but as someone who regularly does round trips of 250 miles I've never been able to afford a vehicle with the range I've needed. At the start of 2019 I was looking into the new Nissan Leaf and found out about Octopus EV. Eventually I convinced my boss about the Salary Sacrifice scheme, and decided the Model 3 Performance was the way to go. The savings from the scheme and the 0% BIK mean my outgoings on car and electricity now are slightly below what I was paying for car and diesel before. Moving onto Octopus Go for home charging has saved us more money, and the Tesla Supercharger network has meant any range anxiety disappeared after the first trip. I've already recommended the scheme to colleagues who have been blown away by both the car and the savings.'

Calculate your Benefit in Kind rate

What is Benefit in Kind?

Benefit in Kind (BiK) is a benefit which employees recieve through work. For electric vehicles as they have zero carbon emissions, the BiK rate is low.

In the 2020/21 tax year, the rate is 0%, which increases to 1% in 2021/22 and 2% in 2022/23 until 2025.
