The agreement via Northumbria Healthcare’s NHS Fleet Solutions, will give staff from more than 200 organisations access to lease the Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE over a three-year period.
Sir James Mackey – Chief Executive Northumbria Healthcare, said: “We are delighted to be working with Jaguar Land Rover UK, this is a great deal for NHS and public sector staff and delivers genuine benefit to our patients.”
Reigning ‘Car of the Year’, the zero emissions Jaguar I-PACE SUV complements the NHS’ ambition to reduce its carbon footprint and be more sustainable.
Sir James Mackey continued; “To have a fleet of cars that are fully electric demonstrates our on-going commitment to making decisions that reduce our impact on the environment and help us become greener.”
