Overview

What is electric car leasing?

What is electric car leasing?

Electric car leasing is a cost effective way to drive an eco friendly car. Electric or hybrid vehicles are often more expensive to buy that their diesel or petrol counterparts so leasing allows you to drive an electric car that might otherwise be out of reach.

EV leasing is appealing because of it's simplicity. You arrange your lease and then hand the vehicle back when your contract ends, freeing you from the responsibility of ownership, which gives you the flexibility to switch cars every few years.

Find your perfect electric vehicle today and benefit from lower fuel costs and reduced running costs. If you're looking for a business electric lease then you can also take advantage of some great incentives, including a lower BIK rate and the salary sacrifice scheme.

What's the difference?

Electric and hybrid car types

BEV Battery Electric Vehicle

Battery electric vehicles are powered by a large battery and an electric motor; meaning they’re 100% pure electric. They’re the cheapest to run and don’t emit any emissions.

PHEV Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle

Plug-in hybrid vehicles combine an electric plug-in battery and a traditional combustion engine, so they offer the best of both worlds. The car will use its electric supply first, before switching to fuel.

HEVS Hybrid Electric Vehicle

Traditional hybrids also have a battery and combustion engine, but the battery is too small to be charged. You’ll get some power from the battery, but it won’t last long, and you’ll run on traditional fuel for the majority.

We offer electric and hybrid cars below £200 a month, which rise to £500 and more. We stock proven models like the Toyota Prius and Nissan Leaf and newer models like the Mercedes-Benz EQC and the Audi e-tron. All our cars are competitively priced and come with no deposit and bad credit options.

You can charge an electric car at home, either with a three-pin plug or with a charging point; most people prefer charging points as they charge faster and are safer to use. There are thousands of charging points in the UK, so running out of charge isn’t an issue.

It depends on what you want from your vehicle; leasing is ideal for those who are a little unsure about going electric by purchasing a car or if you like to switch cars every few years. Buying is better for people who want to own an asset and want to invest in their vehicle long-term.

The primary way electric cars benefit the environment is that they don’t emit any harmful gases into our air, keeping it cleaner. Traditional hybrid and plug-in hybrids will emit some harmful gases, but you can still minimise your carbon footprint.

Charging your car with electricity instead of petrol or diesel is cheaper, so it depends on what type of vehicle you have and how much you charge it. For example, a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) doesn’t take fuel so you’ll save money. A plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) can save you money, but only if you minimise the car’s fuel use by charging your electric vehicle up regularly. However, with standard ranges of 20-40 miles, you’ll probably end up using some fuel. A traditional hybrid (HEV) won’t save you any money on fuel as you can’t charge the car up.

Also known as ‘range’, the length of a single charge will depend on the type of car, but at present, it’s between 100 and 200 miles. Some vehicles go above 200 miles per charge, such as the Tesla Model Y Long Range and the Hyundai Kona.

We offer short-term leases on our cars, but we’ll have to price it up for you. Get in touch with our team and tell us your budget, desired contract length and car.
