5 Reasons to Lease an Electric Vehicle

As the facts and statistics surrounding climate change seem to get more daunting by the day, more and more people are switching to an electric car to lower their carbon footprint. There are still some concerns that persist, such as range anxiety and price, but when you opt for an electric car leasing deal, you can cut the cost and test the waters to see how you really feel about driving a pure electric or hybrid vehicle.

Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC), we specialise in personal and commercial vehicle leasing deals, helping individuals and businesses alike cut the costs whilst driving a brand-new vehicle. All of our cars, vans and pickups can be delivered straight to your door across mainland UK, allowing you to drive your next vehicle as soon as possible. Electric vehicles are the future, and here’s why...

Reduced Running Costs

After the recent panic surrounding fuel, the price of petrol and diesel has crept up, but this isn’t a rare occurrence. Fuel prices are constantly inflating, leaving people frustrated as they search for the cheapest petrol station. Charging an electric vehicle is significantly cheaper than filling up on fuel; a mile in an electric car works out around three or four times cheaper than in an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle. This not only benefits the environment but helps your bank balance too.

More and more electric cars are being developed by various car brands, giving drivers a choice should they choose to go electric. The all-new Ford Puma hatchback is currently just £215.62* per month inc. VAT, providing you with a mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) if you’re looking to ease yourself into the EV world.

Better for the Environment

Of course, one of the greatest advantages of driving an electric vehicle is the positive impact they have on the environment. Pure electric vehicles produce a net-zero level of carbon emissions, decreasing your carbon footprint excessively. More businesses are looking towards electric van leasing deals in order to improve their reputation and attract more clients, proving that electric vehicles are the way forwards in all walks of life.

They’re Easier to Maintain

The number of moving parts is greater in an ICE vehicle than an electric one. Therefore, there is less wear and tear damaging your car, saving you money when it comes to routine repairs and MOT’s. With fewer things that can “go wrong” under an electric vehicle’s bonnet, you can have a safer, more reliable drive.

If you need a small, simple vehicle that gets you from A to B, the all-new Renault Zoe is available with us for monthly payments of just £193.30* per month inc. VAT, cutting down your upfront costs as well as decreasing maintenance and running fees. To view our full collection of electric vehicles on special offer, please visit us here.

Government Incentives

When you opt for an electric vehicle, the Government will provide you with a grant of up to £2,500, an incentive that also applies when you choose to lease. Instead of being deducted as a single lump sum, it is spread across the lease term. Electric vehicles can also come with green labels on their license plates to allow local authorities to offer drivers incentives; for instance, in some locations, drivers can use bus lanes, enter low-emission zones and enjoy free parking.

Electric Vehicles and Leasing go Hand in Hand

It’s no secret that electric vehicles are cheaper to run and maintain than their fuel counterparts, but what about buying one upfront? A big concern for drivers is the pricing; if you wish to buy outright, you could find yourself paying significantly more. By opting for a leasing deal, you can save yourself money in more ways than one, which works out well for businesses and individuals alike.

All kinds of businesses can benefit from our electric van leasing deals; they boost the reputation of your company and can attract more eco-conscious employees and clients.
