A Strong Start to 2023

Salary sacrifice car benefits scheme provider Tusker enjoyed a strong start to 2023, with a record 240 new accounts signed up between January and June.

These 240 new accounts have seen over 180,000 new employees gain access to Tusker’s award-winning car benefits provision, with an overall total of more than 1,500,000 drivers who can now access the scheme.

Tusker, which has been part of the Lloyds banking group since February this year, has also had a record-breaking first half of 2023, having delivered more than 8,500 brand new vehicles in the six-month period. This brings its overall fleet size to more than 29,000 vehicles for the first time. Of these, 86% electric vehicles – more than 6900, were delivered.

The growth of Tusker’s new business has come from multiple sectors across the UK economy, with financial services, tech and utility companies as well as charitable and public-sector organisations seeing the biggest take up.

Paul Gilshan, CEO of Tusker commented:

“More than 1.5 million people now have access to a cheaper way to drive greener cars via salary sacrifice, including many who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford to drive electric via traditional PCP or PCH leases. With 67% of our fleet and 86% of our new deliveries now pure electric, Tusker’s schemes prove that driving a brand new, environmentally friendly vehicle is possible for the majority of motorists across the country.”

The EV and plug-in hybrid focus of Tusker’s schemes has seen a remarkable drop in CO2 emissions across the organisations for whom it has provided cars. Companies are able to lower their grey fleet emissions and work towards their ESG goals at the same time as attracting and retaining staff.

“We are well on our way to achieving Net Zero by the end of 2030, and to do so knowing that we are also helping motorists to drive both sustainably and affordably, is a mark of success. A strong start to the year for Tusker will allow us to go further in achieving these goals,” added Gilshan.

With more than 20 years of experience in the implementation of car schemes, Tusker is well versed in the introduction of its schemes into larger corporations, working across multiple stakeholder teams and with existing benefits platforms to ensure a smooth launch. At the same time, Tusker also holds the CPC framework agreement which allows it to work with public sector bodies, including NHS trusts, ambulance services as well as many police forces, fire services, councils, housing associations and armed forces.
