A new deal between Jaguar Land Rover and the NHS will see 700 I-PACE electric SUVs made available for healthcare staff across the country.
The agreement via Northumbria Healthcare’s NHS Fleet Solutions, will give staff from more than 200 organisations access to lease the Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE over a three-year period.
Sir James Mackey – Chief Executive Northumbria Healthcare, said: “We are delighted to be working with Jaguar Land Rover UK, this is a great deal for NHS and public sector staff and delivers genuine benefit to our patients.”
Reigning ‘Car of the Year’, the zero emissions Jaguar I-PACE SUV complements the NHS’ ambition to reduce its carbon footprint and be more sustainable.
Sir James Mackey continued; “To have a fleet of cars that are fully electric demonstrates our on-going commitment to making decisions that reduce our impact on the environment and help us become greener.”
Claire Watson-Brown, National Contract Hire & Public Sector Manager, Jaguar Land Rover UK, said: “We are very proud to provide NHS and Public Sector staff with this fleet of Jaguar I-PACEs. The I-PACE demonstrates our latest electric vehicle technology, developed here in the UK to deliver clean, sustainable and efficient transport.”
The fleet of I-PACEs will be available to public sector staff at organisations which are signed up to NHS Fleet Solutions from April 2020. Employees will pay for their vehicles via salary sacrifice.
