In the same way our life changes over time, so do our needs for a car, not just in terms of which one but how often we use it and what we use it for. The vehicle you use to whizz around town may not be that useful for a holiday or to ferry kids from football to drama club.

    Utilisation improvement is a big step in the automotive industry’s journey toward a circular economy. According to the RAC Foundation, the average car or van in England spends 96% of its life parked at home or work. The flexibility of a Pivotal subscription allows you to pause your membership at times when you don’t require a vehicle, meaning fewer cars sitting unused.

    It’s much more common nowadays for people to only need a car for a few months per year. For those who travel for long periods, split their time between different countries, or shift between home-working and commuting, the ability to pause a subscription means cars are better utilised, bringing us closer to circularity.

    Pivotal’s Indigo Tier includes the award-winning Jaguar I-Pace as one of its vehicle options.

    Pivotal is designed to make driving as flexible as anyone could desire, allowing members to drive the latest models by Jaguar and Land Rover. Four different tier options allow you to find the option that best fits your needs and you can change cars every six months or even sooner.

    For example, if you spend a lot of time driving in the countryside you may opt for a Defender, which will feel completely at home going over icy roads and muddy tracks. If you prefer something a bit more “chic”, the Range Rover Velar would perfectly suit your needs. For the environmentally-conscious or those who need a spacious car but want to avoid the Congestion Charge, the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE is a wonderful option.

    The mighty Land Rover Defender 110 is a perfect choice for those who favour the countryside.

    Generally speaking, car subscriptions right across the market may look more expensive than buying, financing or leasing an equivalent model at first glance, but subscribers benefit from the convenience of not having to arrange road tax and insurance fees separately. With Pivotal, insurance, tax, servicing, roadside assistance and vehicle delivery are all included in the subscription. The only added cost is the fuel (or the electricity). They also have specialist member services available whenever you have any questions or require support throughout your membership.

    A common problem with any kind of subscription though is getting trapped in contracts that no longer fit your requirements. Pivotal however offers total flexibility. The minimum commitment is just 90 days, after which you can decide to continue with the package you have, pause it or change your terms at no extra cost. If you need to stop for a while, Pivotal will collect the car and you pay nothing until you start the service again.

    Further information:

    The Blue tier lets you drive a Land Rover Discovery Sport, Jaguar F-PACE or Range Rover Evoque; the Indigo option gives you a Range Rover Velar, Land Rover Discovery or Jaguar I-PACE; the Violet option adds the Range Rover Sport and the Land Rover Defender 110, and the top-tier Ultraviolet package includes the Range Rover.

    Pivotal’s packages start at £850/month ( Blue tier) up to £1,800 ( Ultraviolet tier).

    Businesses can also take advantage of the service with a salary sacrifice scheme offered as an option. In these uncertain times, the added flexibility will be surely appreciated.
