Jaguar Land Rover has launched a "Cycle to Work" scheme as part of a sustainability strategy to encourage employees to take a greener approach to travelling to work.

The scheme will provide employees with the opportunity to make savings on the cost of a new cycle and safety equipment, which will be achieved by taking advantage of income tax and national insurance contributions savings through a salary sacrifice agreement.

 

The company has chosen an organisation called Cyclescheme as partners to the initiative.

Cyclescheme are a specialised service provider who work closely with a network of local retailers and provide a bespoke support team to deal with employees' queries.

By choosing Cyclescheme Jaguar Land Rover will ensure that employees have the optimum choice of cycle brands.

The scheme is part of the Government's Green Travel Plan and to participate employees will undertake a hire agreement paying either a weekly or monthly amount, which will be deducted from their salary prior to normal tax and NI deductions.

Roadshows will take place across Jaguar Land Rover sites during the month of August to support employees with the application and ordering process.

Des Thurlby, HR director said, "We are delighted to be able to launch the Cycle to Work scheme at Jaguar Land Rover. As well as making a contribution to reducing our carbon footprint, cycling to work is a healthier option and we hope this scheme will inspire employees to think all the time about sustainability and the environment."

The Jaguar brand will be a very different beast in 2015 as it returns to the volume market with the arrival of the XE.

The initial reception has been overwhelmingly positive and if desire is converted into orders, then this could rapidly propel Jaguar towards the market share achieved by its German rivals, who all comfortably sell in excess of 100,000 units a year, close to 10 times Jaguar's current annual registrations.

The pace of change will continue through to 2016, when the first Jaguar SUV arrives.

Land Rover

Land Rover's latest move into the mainstream comes this year with the launch of the Discovery Sport, with prices expected to start from less then £30,000.

This model will play a key role in driving renewed growth, which slowed to 2.8% last year after sales growth of nearly 50% since 2011, thanks mainly to the Range Rover Evoque, the brand's fastest selling model ever.

Future model growth will be based around three key pillars of Range Rover, Discovery and Defender, with each family featuring a unique characteristic.
