The UK’s Parkers named the Tesla Model Y as the Best Company Car at the 2024 New Car Awards. It was praised for its combination of efficiency, dynamics, range, access to a wide Supercharger network, and attractive taxation for owners.
Experts at Parkers, the UK’s largest new car buying and advice site, have named the best cars in various categories for the seventh year in a row. In partnership with Fleet News, the winner of the “Best Company Car” category at the Parkers New Car Awards 2024 was determined. It was the Tesla Model Y, which has the best combination of characteristics to win the award. It finishes ahead of the BMW i4 and the MG4 EV in this year’s awards. The Model Y was among the 18 best cars awarded this year.
Matt dePrez, Fleet News’ senior staff writer said: “With a choice of three powertrains, there’s a Model Y to suit a variety of needs and budgets. The mid-spec Long Range makes the most sense for company car drivers. It can cover up to 331 miles between charges and the battery can be recharged to 80% capacity in less than half an hour, at one of Tesla’s Superchargers, or a public rapid charging site.”
Keith Adams, Parkers.co.uk editor, added: “Short lead times, impressive real-world range and rock-bottom tax bills make the Tesla Model Y a highly desirable company car and a worthy winner of this year’s award. No wonder the Model Y has consistently been the UK’s best-selling company car.”
Parkers experts noted that electric vehicles are increasingly becoming the best in many categories. Keith Adams said: “The tide of electrification is unstoppable, even if the government has confused the situation by moving the petrol- and diesel-powered car ban from 2030 to 2035. Carmakers are doing their part by launching some amazing new models, but there’s still a lot of work to do on the UK’s public charging infrastructure if EVs are.”
The Parkers New Car Awards 2024 are now in their seventh year. It reflects the ever-changing views of British consumers. Winners are determined based on a combination of the site’s expert reviewers’ verdicts in thousands of miles of road testing and the purchasing habits of the website’s 2.3 million users actively involved in the buying process.
