Jaguar Land Rover and the NHS have signed a deal for a fleet of 700 I-Pace electric SUVs for public sector staff across the country.
The deal was agreed through Northumbria Healthcare's NHS Fleet Solutions, and will enable staff from more than 200 organisations to lease an I-Pace over a three-year period from April 2020.
Sir James Mackey, chief executive of 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."
"To have a fleet of cars that are fully electric demonstrates our ongoing commitment to making decisions that reduce our impact on the environment and help us become greener."
Claire Watson-Brown, national contract hire & public sector manager for Jaguar Land Rover UK, said: "We are very proud to provide NHS and public sector staff with this fleet of Jaguar I-Paces. The I-Pace demonstrates our latest electric vehicle technology, developed here in the UK to deliver clean, sustainable and efficient transport."
