Liverpool Victoria has announced the launch of Electrix, which will offer customers the opportunity to rent, charge and cover electric vehicles (EVs) in a one-stop-shop-style platform.
As consumers become increasingly climate-conscious, the move is designed to facilitate the general populace’s transition to cleaner methods of transportation and will also give guidance as to how best to maintain EVs.
CBVC Vehicle Management, which will provide the expertise relating to leasing and online platforms have managed to procure 600 cars for Electrix, despite supply chain issues affecting the industry.
What the key players said
Gill Nowell, Head of EV Communications at Electrix, said, “Electric cars are our future and are rapidly gaining in popularity as being great cars to own and drive. The tide is turning in favour of zero tailpipe emission vehicles, with battery electric cars making up over 14% of car sales during the first half of 2022, but we still have a long way to go. This is where Electrix comes in.
He continued, “We want to take the hassle out of electric car ownership which is why we’re giving drivers who are thinking about making the switch access to useful information, products and services, demystifying some of the common jargon used and to be a source of truth when it comes to zero tailpipe emission driving.”
“We’re very proud to be partnering with LV General Insurance to provide the leasing platform and full in-life lease management for Electrix customers. Our ethos has always been to be at the forefront of the market and invest in the latest technology,” said Mike Manners, MD of CBVC Vehicle Management.
