Because of quite large tax advantages compared to diesel and petrol cars, a lot more electric cars are being bought by companies for their director/shareholders.  One advantage, in particular, is the low benefit-in-kind tax charge that applies to electric cars.

In 2020/21 the benefit-in-kind percentage dropped to 0%.  It was 1% (of the list price when new) in 2021/22 and will be at 2% for 2022/23 and the following two years.  This is very good news for the electric car industry, and for any business owner looking to have an electric car.
