Veezu, the UK’s fastest growing taxi and private hire technology platform, has partnered with WeFlex to help driver-partners purchase electric vehicles.
WeFlex is a private hire vehicle company that offers rent-to-buy schemes, flexible car finance and an easy route to electric vehicles, exclusively for private hire drivers.
Veezu, which operates nine regional brands across England and Wales, has partnered with the firm to offer more than 12,000 driver-partners purchasing deals on electric vehicles. Two Teslas have already been purchased through the scheme by driver-partners in Newport, South Wales, home to regional brand Dragon Taxis, and five other electric vehicles have been sold across their other brands.
Tarlochan Bath, Business Services Support Director at Veezu, said: “We are very pleased to be working with WeFlex to support drivers that partner with Veezu and their efforts to replace old cars with new, electric vehicles.
“As part of our wider environmental social governance strategy, we are always looking at ways to improve our carbon footprint. This scheme, which not only encourages driver-partners to switch to electric vehicles but also offers a practical solution to help them do so, aligns perfectly with our long term business goals.”
India Cotton, Marketing Lead at WeFlex, said: “We are happy to announce our partnership with Veezu, being an approved vendor for such a reputable brand is something we are very proud of. These first few sales are just the beginning, and we are looking forward to helping more Veezu driver-partners across the country.”
