IS IT TIME TO ‘SWITCH’?
There is now no cheaper way of getting a new Electric or Hybrid vehicle than under a Salary Sacrifice scheme like the TCH Salsa Employee Car Salary Sacrifice scheme. The number of Electric and Hybrid vehicles is increasing month by month – both in terms of numbers of vehicles already on the road and also the number of new models coming on to the market.
Is there a deposit to pay?No, one of the main advantages of the scheme is that you will not be required to pay any deposit towards your vehicle.
Is there a minimum or maximum term for the car scheme?Yes, the scheme is restricted to either 2, 3, or 4 years, although extensions may be offered by TCH on application at the original end of the contract for up to a maximum of 5 years.
Will I need to insure my vehicle?Fully comprehensive insurance, inclusive of business cover, is provided for the duration of the contract, with the option to add up to two additional named drivers.
Is road tax included?Road tax is included within the scheme for the full term at the prevailing rate at the time of delivery.
What about servicing, repairs and breakdown?All vehicles will come with a maintenance package which includes road tax, all routine servicing and maintenance, breakdown cover, and tyre replacements* *stolen or vandalised tyres are excluded.
Road to Net Zero
TCH Salsa, as a salary sacrifice scheme for company cars in the UK, has a role to play in the road to net zero by encouraging the adoption of low-emission vehicles.
One of the key sources of emissions from the transportation sector is the use of petrol and diesel vehicles. As such, a major component of the road to net zero involves reducing the number of such vehicles on the road and replacing them with low-emission alternatives.
TCH Salsa can contribute to this effort by offering a salary sacrifice scheme that incentivises employees to opt for low-emission vehicles. Such schemes allow employees to sacrifice a portion of their salary in exchange for the use of a company car, which can include electric or hybrid vehicles.
By making low-emission vehicles more accessible and affordable, TCH Salsa can help to increase their adoption and reduce emissions from the transportation sector. This can contribute to the UK's goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2050, as set out in the Climate Change Act. TCH Salsa can support these efforts by offering a wide range of electric vehicles from multiple manufacturers and facilitating the installation of charging points.
