Electric Van Leasing & Contract Hire Deals


Several electric van manufacturers are targeting the UK in response to the explosion in demand for electric vehicles. This is because the island is compact enough to accommodate most journeys within the battery range.

A wide range of models is available, from ultra-compact city vans like the Renault Zoe all the way up to fully-featured 3.5-tonne models like the Mercedes-Benz eSprinter and Vauxhall Movano for lease. Battery-powered vans are every bit as capable as their fossil-fuelled counterparts when it comes to towing heavy loads, thanks to some clever design. As well as being more environmentally friendly, the total cost of ownership of many electric vans is lower than their diesel-powered counterparts. At the same time, your vehicle will be exempt from ULEZ and congestion charges, further lowering your business's overheads and improving margins.

You can lease a crew electric van if you regularly need to transport your team. Or, if you're not completely ready to lease an electric van, you can consider one of our plug-in hybrid vans from our PHEV vans range. 

Despite concerns over the range of electric vans, the latest models can travel over 200 miles on a single charge. In addition, most EVs offer rapid charging from  10 to 80% in as little as 30 minutes.  

With the wide range of electric van lease options available, fleets have no reason to resist electrification. Moreover, we offer incredibly affordable electric van leases in the UK and a straightforward process that makes switching to an electric or hybrid van easier than ever before.   Explore our commercial electric van deals today and step into the zero-emissions future!

Electric Van FAQs

What are the advantages of leasing an electric van?

Driving a fully-electric van offers some remarkable benefits. These include: 

Lower running costs

There's no denying that electric vans and hybrid vans are cheaper to run than fuel-powered ones. The cost per mile for electricity is lower than that of petrol or diesel. An electric van also has fewer moving parts and wearable elements, resulting in lower maintenance costs.

Eco-friendly and cleaner driving

Because an electric van emits no CO2 emissions, you contribute to better air quality for everyone, including you.

Grants and incentives

Manufacturers, dealers, and leasing companies like CVC that offer low-emission vehicles receive government grants, resulting in discounts on the prices of EVs. Furthermore, some local governments offer free, or reduced-cost, parking, and some places even allow free charging. Electric vans are also exempt from the London Congestion Charge.

More spec, better drive

There will be a higher level of standard equipment on electric vans than their equivalents with combustion engines, for instance, air conditioning. Electric vans are also much quieter than vans powered by diesel, so drivers will not feel any vibrations from the engine. They also have automatic transmissions, which ensure that the vehicle accelerates more quickly. 

You look progressive

An electric van reflects a forward-thinking attitude. Amazon and its 1500 Mercedes-Benz delivery vans made headlines for adopting the technology.

For more information, please read our Electric Vehicle First-time Buyer Guide.

Are there different types of electric vans?

Electric vans can be categorized into two groups:

  • BEV vans or battery electric vans, are vans that use only batteries and have no combustion engine.
  • Hybrid vans are vehicles that combine electric power and internal combustion engines.

Among these two types, BEVs are the only vans that offer zero emissions hence leasing an electric van is the only option to avoid Congestion Charges in London.

What should I consider when leasing an electric van?

Charge times

Electric vans take longer to recharge than regular vans to fill up and that's the fact. On most electric vans equipped with fast-charging capability, you can charge your battery up to 80% in less than 60 minutes using DC rapid charging. You can also recharge your electric van overnight with a home charger, but a 3-pin plug charger might take as long as the whole day. 

Range

There is a real issue of range anxiety because electric vans do not travel as far on a 100% charge as a fuel van will on a full tank. The best electric vans, however, travel over 200 miles on a single charge nowadays. Considering few UK van drivers travel 200 miles in a day unless they are last-mile delivery drivers, overnight charging should alleviate range anxiety. You could consider a hybrid van lease if EV van range anxiety is not something you can deal with though. Check out our electric vans for lease UK  and hybrid vans for lease to find the best option for your business.

Higher leasing costs but longer-term savings

Electic vans are still in their infancy and have expensive components. Even though the electric vans for sale come with a higher price tag, there are significant savings on running costs. Electric van lease is a favoured option when it comes to electric vans in the UK.

Electric vans are exempt from the Low & Ultra Low Emission Zone as well as Clean Air Zone charges. E-vans also get a 100% discount on Congestion Charge. This will save your business thousands of pounds if you travel through London on a daily basis. Remember that you have to apply for free entry into the Congestion Charge Zone in advance! This right doesn't come automatically. To learn more about registering your electric van for Congestion Charge relief, including how to register if your van is leased, read our article The Congestion Charge Zone is not free for all EV.

Van weight & payload capacity

The electric van battery is heavy, which contributes to the GVW of a van and as a result, can reduce the payload that the EV van can carry. Despite this, the best electric vans are capable of transporting almost as much cargo as their diesel and petrol counterparts.

Manufacturer range vs real-life range

In reality, you're likely to get 25 miles less than what the electric van manufacturer claims. Those miles are derived from tests in which the vans are left running over time. Real-world situations often involve EV vans being stopped, started, windows rolled down, braked too hard, etc., all of which can make batteries lose charge. Cold weather also affects batteries negatively, reducing their effective range - although not significantly. From our best electric van UK leasing deals, you'll surely be able to choose a van with a suitable range for your needs.

Battery lifespan

Batteries in electric vans degrade over time, but most manufacturers are so confident in the technology that they provide up to an 8-year warranty on them! With a warranty like that, you are covered for the entire term of your EV van lease.

How do I apply for a Plug-in Grant with an electric van lease?

When you're leasing electric vans in the UK, you don't need to take any additional action - we are responsible for including the grant's value in the vehicle's rentals. In fact, all of our electric van leasing deals on our website already include the electric van grant. 

What are the best electric vans to lease in 2022?
