Most Brits would consider buying or leasing an alternative fuel car in the next two years, new research shows.
Of the 2025 GB adults polled on behalf of ContractHireandLeasing.com, 65% of responses indicated that they would consider at least one of the most common forms of alternative fuel vehicle (AFV), such as a hybrid car, a plug-in hybrid or an electric vehicle.
For both business and personal consumers, there are definite perks to considering an alternative fuel vehicle for their transport needs, such as lower tax rates and government grants.
The Toyota Prius claimed the majority of the votes in favour of an alternative fuel vehicle, claiming 19% of responses, indicating they would consider one of these vehicles within the next two years.
M.D of ContractHireAndLeasing.com Dave Timmis said: “Motorists appear to be increasingly interested in alternative fuel vehicles, as they look for vehicles which are cost effective to run.
“As alternative fuel vehicles usually benefit from low levels of BiK and VED tax, low fuel costs and are often exempt from the London Congestion Charge, they are becoming increasingly attractive options.”
