Why lease an electric or hybrid car?
Electric or hybrid vehicles are frequently more expensive to purchase than their petrol or diesel counterparts. Leasing, on the other hand, provides a decidedly affordable path to being able to drive a green vehicle while also reaping the many other benefits of leasing green, such as:
- Reduced initial and ongoing costs
- Lower on-road operating costs
- Lower fuel costs, especially with all-electric vehicles.
- There is no risk of depreciation
- No-hassle driving
- Utilise cutting-edge technology
Where can I charge my electric car?
Most EV owners will recharge their cars at home overnight at an off-peak rate if they have a suitable garage or driveway. Overnight charging is how you can maximise your 'fuel' savings.
If you're on the go, there are now plenty of places to get a quick charge. New charging points, for example, are constantly being installed in supermarkets, restaurants, shopping malls, gyms, car parks, B&Bs, and hotels. Some of these 'destination' chargers are free, while others require payment for charging time.
Can I save money on fuel?
As long as you can charge your electric car, you can enjoy very low-cost driving in an EV. As electricity is much more affordable than petrol or diesel, the most significant savings come from fully electric vehicles, also known as BEVs. They have large batteries that you can charge with low-cost, off-peak electricity. With the correct electricity tariff, you can reduce your fuel bill by up to 90%.
You can obtain the next-largest fuel savings with plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), which have a smaller battery as well as a gasoline or diesel engine. However, to reduce your fuel costs in a PHEV, you must be thoughtful and proactive.
Are there any benefits to leasing an electric car?
There are numerous benefits to leasing an electric vehicle. First and foremost, you will have the opportunity to drive a brand new, environmentally friendly vehicle. Second, because electric cars are evolving at such a rapid pace, you will always have access to the most recent EV technology, as well as improved range, safety, and performance. Third, an electric car lease eliminates any concerns about reliability and maintenance that come with older vehicles. Fourth, you get the peace of mind that comes with fixed monthly payments and the ability to hand back your car – hassle-free – at the end of the contract and upgrade to the latest electric car model.
