Anglo Scottish Asset Finance in driving seat to accelerate cleaner motoring

A broker is partnering with an electric vehicle software firm to drive greener motoring.

Chester-le-Street’s Anglo Scottish Asset Finance is working with Diode.

Bosses say the tie-up will create a “full circle service for businesses looking to invest in electric vehicles”.

They add it will help roll out the Government’s target of delivering a tenfold increase in vehicle charge points by 2030.

Charlotte Enright, Anglo Scottish Asset Finance’s business development manager and sustainability lead, said: “Recent figures published by The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders highlighted a huge increase in sales of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in 2021.

“In fact, more new battery electric vehicles were registered than over the previous five years combined.

“Diode has identified the need for a streamlined, simple, data driven platform that requires very little in terms of time investment.

“Once employees have completed their assessments, and businesses have generated their roll-out plans, those seeking finance are directed to Anglo Scottish, where we will find the best possible finance deals for electric vehicles and charging stations.”

Dan Eyre, co-founder and chief operating officer at Diode, which uses software to help businesses, employees and consumers generate tailored charge point plans, added: “At current petrol and electricity prices, the cost per mile for electric vehicles is about half that of an equivalent petrol vehicle.

“With Anglo Scottish as our finance partner, customers will quickly reap the benefits, both in terms of cost savings and accelerating their transition to electric vehicles.”
