We know the utilities sector inside out; utilities companies have been using our tailored finance packages and fleet management services for 30 years. So our teams have a first-hand, in-depth understanding of the complex challenges that can come with deploying vital public services like gas, electricity, water and communications.
Working with you as a trusted partner, we’ll ensure your fleet is readily available, safe and well maintained at all times - so your customers can rely on your vital services running smoothly at all times.
Funding strategies and levels of capital investment can change how much government support is available to your utility company. Our expert guidance and flexible leasing options include contract hire, contract purchase and sale leaseback, so you can choose the funding option that best suits your organisation’s needs, maximises your government support and ensures that you’re providing the best service possible for your customers.

We at British Gas are so proud to have been the first to be involved in such an innovative project, and were extremely impressed with the performance of the Nissan e-NV200 during our winter trial. Throughout the pilot, Nissan and Hitachi Capital gave us the freedom to tweak the vehicles according to our exact specifications. As a consequence of the successful partnership, we are now fully committed to making 10% of our fleet electric.
Head of Fleet
I feel very positive about the work undertaken by Hitachi Capital on our behalf. It’s good to know that, as a leasing supplier, they are not only willing to work with smaller fleets such as our own, but that they also work hard to meet the unique requirements of those fleets. We needed them to deliver on a number of obligations – specifically around dealership, vehicle and fitting requirements – and these were met in a timely and professional manner.
