The electric car scheme is an offer for employees of HiØ who travel during working hours. The cars can also be rented privately by employees, students and other residents at specified times. 

Information about the scheme

The electric car scheme is an important measure in HiØ’s environmental strategy and for service trips of more than 40 km. If an electric car is available, then borrowing an electric car shall be the employee’s first choice. By doing so, you protect the environment and at the same time avoid having to provide an expense report. The frequently asked questions section provides answers about when electric cars should be given priority and when this is not appropriate.

The scheme is open to all employees and HiØ will be billed for work-related use. As an employee at HiØ, you can also use the electric cars for private errands, but then you must pay and will be charged directly for their use.

When can the cars be used?
