ING already leases 42 Plug-in Hybrids but with this pilot the company looks to the future and electric mobility. The company says that aside from the 51 drivers there is a waiting list as well. Part of the pilot is to give the participants a year feedback on electric driving. Through surveys, but also through an internal community, drivers can share their experiences (tips & tricks).

ING is one of the first company to announce a fleet of i3 cars, others are expected to join in the future. Even Police Departments are looking at the environmental-friendly BMW i3.
