GOVECS offers first corporate scooter leasing model
Munich, August 26, 2020– GOVECS, Europe's leading manufacturer of electric scooters, together with its financial partner Mercator-Leasing, is offering an innovative corporate scooter leasing model, which is only available in Germany so far. "We want to encourage even more people to move towards sustainable mobility. Together with our partner Mercator-Leasing, we have developed a concept that offers benefits for both the employee and the employer," says Thomas Grübel, founder and CEO of GOVECS. The financial partner, Mercator-Leasing, has already expertise in the field of corporate leasing in cooperation with Jobrad, a leasing program for bicycle. The concept with electric scooters is similar: The employer leases the scooter and provides it for to the employee through a transfer agreement. Four climate-neutral models are available as leasing vehicles: The E-Schwalbe as a modern and sustainable interpretation of the classic, the ELMOTO LOOP as a dynamic e-moped, the everyday hero GOVECS FLEX and the ELMOTO KICK, a kick scooter for the last kilometer to work.
- GOVECS cooperates with Mercator-Leasing and is the first e-scooter manufacturer to offer a corporate leasing model
- When referred through the employer, employees save up to 46% compared to cash purchases
- Employers benefit from a cost-neutral way of retaining employees, improving their image and saving taxes
High discounts and other benefits for employees
The saving of up to 46% compared to the cash purchase price is probably the biggest benefit for the employee. The electric scooter is provided for the employee over three years (36 months) in monthly rates, and without the need for a deposit. Since the scooter is purchased through the employer, payments are easily deducted from the employee’s salary. The individual discount and the monthly net charge can be calculated in advance via the benefit calculator. "In addition to the e-scooter, the employee receives a care package: The regular service and insurance are already included. We have deliberately chosen a transparent system. There are no hidden costs: Apart from the monthly instalment, the employee has to pay only for the electricity," says Thomas Grübel. Employees can also personalize the configuration of their vehicle. As in the example of the E-Schwalbe, the employees can choose between the 45 and 90 km/h version and which of the six colours should be combined with which of the 3 seat options. In addition to the full-service package, the scooter comes with a great driving feeling. The GOVECS CEO enthuses: "Cruise through your city without emissions and park your scooter without having to look for a parking space – that's perfect mobility!"
Benefits for employers: Employee retention and image
The advantages for the employer are also obvious: Employee motivation and retention. "For employers, the electric scooter leasing model is a smart alternative to the company car: The purchase price is much lower and the use of electric mobility contributes positively to the public perception: Innovation and sustainable solutions enhance the company image," says the GOVECS CEO. In addition, there are purely mathematical advantages: The employer benefits from tax savings through increased operating expenses. Models are also available for the self-employed and freelancers.
