SCOTLAND’S first salary sacrifice electric car app, Bounc-e, , has launched to revolutionise how businesses switch to electric vehicles in Scotland and beyond.

Helping businesses cut their carbon footprint, Bounc-e simplifies the switch of a company’s fleet to electric vehicles via an easy-to-use app with a vast selection of electric vehicles, with flexible contract arrangements and fixed-term products.

The bespoke salary sacrifice electric vehicle scheme has been built to suit businesses of all sizes. The flexible 12-month ownership contracts for fleet vehicles feature (rare) 30-day notice periods, which enable companies to take charge of their arrangements without the commitment of more extended agreements. 

The Bounc-e app guides users through every stage of the switch to electric vehicles. Bounc-e benefits from access to over 500 EVs on the market, providing recommendations per budget. It also provides support in charging points, choosing the correct energy tariffs, and mapping out the nearest charging stations. 

Eifion Roberts, Founder, Bounc-e said: “More businesses than ever want to switch their commercial car fleet to electric; however, they are often held back by onerous lease arrangements, charging point installation problems, and limited vehicle selection.

“As Scotland’s first salary sacrifice electric car shop, we are passionate about enabling businesses to do the right thing for the environment from day one while empowering employees to lower their carbon footprint. 

“At Bounc-e, we are smoothing the route to commercial electrical car ownership and building the future of car shopping via an intuitive app that offers both environmental choice and flexible ownership contracts plus support with the full electric vehicle switch.”

Bounc-e was awarded funding from Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc’s (MSIP) Innovation Challenge. Scottish Enterprise provided a further £100,000 of project fundingwhich was match funded by an Angel Investment Syndicate. Bounc-e’s founders also benefited from the MSIP Agitators’ advice that helped nurture and develop the business during its set-up period.  

The app is now available on Google Play and the Apple App Store.
