With so many options available to you, finding the right car for your business can be difficult. Since most small startups are working on a strict budget, they can’t afford to pay for all of the additional features that many manufacturers try and entice you to buy either. Fortunately, there are still some basic models that come fitted with the kind of technology you’ll need as standard. Here are 4 important attributes you should consider when purchasing a new vehicle.
Affordability is one of the most important qualities of any company car and finding a vehicle that sits in one of the lower ranking insurance groups is the ideal way to attain this. Insurance groups range from 1-50, with those at the lower end of the scale being much cheaper to insure than those at the higher end. You can use sites like this to see where each make and model will be grouped.
The next step is to take a look under the hood, as this is where the most important technology lies. In order to compete with new hybrid vehicles or all-electrics that have gained popularity in recent years, many manufacturers have redeveloped their existing engines to be much more efficient. We see this with Ford and their EcoBoost range, as well as Vauxhall’s BlueInjection and SEAT’s Ecomotive technology. As well as increasing mpg, these also aim to decrease CO2 emissions so that you don’t have to pay as much in Vehicle Excise Duty.
