While company car usage is on the decline, as many business drivers are either taking personal contract hire or cash for cars due tax changes, there are still many businesses who utilise cars as part of their employee remuneration and incentive schemes.
Managing a fleet of vehicles can be a difficult task for many directors, managers and HR individuals within a business
In order to assist our clients, we can offer as much fleet management as is required, including:
· Funder-maintenance packages – this will include the cost for all servicing, tyres and breakdown recovery;
· P11d/CO2 – we provide all update and accurate values so that the driver can accurately report on their BiK;
· Driver/driving policies – we can provide a structured policy which ensures your drivers operate within the confines of your mandate; and
· Training – as a member of the CTA, we work with driver-training bodies who can offer up to date and accurate training on how to operate a motor vehicle safely and correctly.

The R Sport is the “middle-class” within the Jaguar XE range, which also includes a base model SE and the top of the line Portfolio.
As standard the R Sport includes an 8” touch screen, front/rear carpet mats, cruise control, 8-way manual front seats, 6 speaker sound system, bi-xenon lights, heated front seats, 18” alloy wheels, ambient interior lighting, electrically adjustable door mirrors, navigation, rain sensing wipers, hill start assist, Bluetooth, InControl, rear parking sensors, sports eats and perimeter alarm/immobiliser and smart key system. In terms of additional factory options – consider privacy glass, black pack and the cold climate pack for the full vehicle.
From a technical perspective, note the £35,720.00 P11d and the reasonable 111g/km of CO2. The 1999CC 8 speed auto engine delivers 180ps which delivers a fantastic 67.3 MPG and 0-62 times of circa 7.5 seconds. The XE has long-life servicing, so it’s every 24 months or 21,000 miles whichever is sooner. This is going to make you consider the cost analysis of driver-maintained vs funder-maintained.
For the 2018 models, you also have the addition of the AWD 240ps engine, which gives your 4WD functionality and 0-62 times of sub-6 seconds!
With so many good options in this class of vehicles, as a customer (personal or business) you are really spoiled for choice!
