Tesla Model Y Wins ‘Company Car of the Year’ by Parkers
Parkers has announced the Tesla Model Y as the Company Car of the Year in its prestigious New Car Awards 2024. The all-electric SUV stood out for its efficiency, dynamic performance, and long-range capabilities, coupled with access to Tesla’s Supercharger network and favorable taxation for company car drivers.
The Tesla Model Y outperformed competitors such as the BMW i4 and the MG4 EV to clinch this year’s award. The selection process, a collaboration between Parkers and Fleet News, involved rigorous evaluation to determine the Best Company Car among a total of 18 award-winning vehicles.
“With a choice of three powertrains, there’s a Model Y to suit a variety of needs and budgets,” said Matt dePrez, Senior Staff Writer at Fleet News. He particularly recommended the mid-spec Long Range model for company car drivers, noting its ability to cover up to 331 miles between charges and the fast recharging capability at Tesla’s Superchargers or public rapid charging sites.
“The Tesla Model Y is a highly desirable company car and a worthy winner of this year’s award,” said Keith Adams, Editor of Parkers.co.uk. He loved the Model Y for its short lead times, impressive real-world range, and low tax bills, while pointing out the vehicle’s status as the UK’s best-selling company car.
Now in its seventh year, the Parkers New Car Awards 2024 reflects the evolving preferences of Britain’s car-buying public. Winners are selected based on expert reviews from Parkers’ team, who conduct thousands of miles of road testing, and the purchasing habits of the website’s 2.3 million users actively involved in the car-buying process.
