What’s remarkable is the significant surge in BEV adoption. Every industry witnessed a doubling of market share over the last two years. This shift has been pivotal in reducing average CO2 emissions across the board. A significant transformation in vehicle choices emerges as businesses switch out diesel vehicles on a large scale for BEVs, PHEVs, and hybrids.

The comprehensive report by ALD Automotive | LeasePlan covers a broad range of sectors, as listed:

  • Technology
  • Financial & Professional Services 
  • Energy & Chemicals
  • Industrial
  • Automotive
  • Consumer Goods
  • Construction
  • Healthcare & Pharma

Ranking factors encompass diesel share, BEV share, hybrid and PHEV share, and average CO2 emissions. 

The Technology sector has demonstrated consistent leadership

The sector showcases the lowest CO2 emissions and diesel share, coupled with a notable BEV, hybrid, and PHEV presence.

One significant revelation is the exponential growth in BEV adoption across industries. The Energy & Chemicals sector notably emphasizes this, with a remarkable 27.2% of vehicles now being fully electric. Momentum for PHEVs and hybrids has stabilised across sectors, while the share of diesel has been reduced by half. Impressively, average CO2 emissions have dwindled across all sectors, with the Technology sector marking the most substantial reduction.

The ranking lineup for 2023 stands as follows: Technology, Financial & Professional Services, Energy & Chemicals, Industrial, Automotive, Consumer Goods, Construction, and Healthcare & Pharma.
