You can now buy a new car just like a mobile phone with all expenses covered, including fuel, on a simple monthly tariff.
A new business, Fuel Included, has launched with the striking motto ‘Fixed Cost Motoring – Take control of your car – Take control of your life’. It is offering a completely new and unique way to drive a new car or van. You choose from a range of brand new plug-in vehicles (plug-in hybrids and all electrics) on lease, and the monthly cost includes the price of the electricity and vehicle tax.
There is a wide range of cars to choose from, including the Volkswagen Golf GTE, BMW i3 and i8, Mercedes B-Class, Nissan Leaf, Renault ZOE and Mitsubishi Outlander. New cars that will be available soon are the Audi A3 e-tron, Kia Soul EV and VW Passat GTE.
Fuel Included gives help to its new plug-in customers with telephone and email support, plus arranges the installation of a home charge point and provides public charge point access cards. It is primarily an online business (at FuelIncluded.com), supplying the cars through the customer’s local car dealer. However, it also arranges events where the public can get to see and test drive new plug-in cars.
Dr Trevor Larkum, Managing Director and CEO of Fuel Included, said:
“The vehicles we supply have very low or zero emissions and so have a very low carbon footprint. By buying your next car from us you’re not just saving money – you’re also saving the climate.”
