As we look ahead to a carbon neutral future, the sales of electric and hybrid vehicles have risen exponentially. With more than 245,000 electric vehicles (EV's) and 515,000 plug-in hybrids (PHEV's) currently on the roads, internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles are slowly but surely being phased out. If you're new to electric motors, it can be hard to determine exactly which model is the best for you, as they all differ, and can be quite expensive upfront. By opting for vehicle contract hire, or vehicle leasing, you can cut the costs on a brand-new vehicle significantly.
Here at MW vehicle contracts (MWVC), we have an impressive range of electric and hybrid vehicles on a collection of leasing deals, all of which can be suited to your budget and preferences. Electric vehicle leasing can be the perfect way to drive a brand new, greener car or van, cutting the upfront costs significantly. If you're considering a brand new pure electric or hybrid vehicle, look towards our top three picks below.
Rivalled with the equally attractive Renault Zoe, the Peugeot e-208 has a much classier interior design, and has plenty of boot space if you tend to go on long travels or need those big family shops. They're definitely better equipped for families rather than single households, and have also been described as being smooth and easy to drive. Its modern exteriors and interiors plus its zero emission benefits make it a great choice if you're looking to step into the greener market.
Here at MWVC, we provide electric car leasing in Leicester, delivering brand new vehicles to all homes and businesses across mainland UK. We currently have the Peugeot e-208 on special offer at £257.06 per month inc. VAT, allowing you to drive in style, and emissions-free, for a fraction of the price of paying upfront.

Renowned for their small, compact size, Smart cars have notoriously been suited to single person households for years. The all-new four-seater Smart Forfour is still perfect for those who don’t have a big family, but this model has more space for driver convenience and peace of mind. It makes the Smart range much more desirable, and it's more affordable to drive than most electric and hybrid vehicles out there.
If you're looking at vehicle contract hire for your next (or first) electric car, we currently have the Smart Forfour for just £179.03 per month inc. VAT, perfect if you're on a budget. It has the look of a Smart car, but with more practicality and space, making it a great option for first time buyers.
Maxus E Deliver
It's not just cars that have electric and hybrid options; van makers have also seen the rising sales and benefits, and most brands now have a range of electric fleets for businesses and personal traders alike. A relatively unheard-of brand compared to its competitors, the Maxus e Deliver was introduced into the market last year, and has already made a big impact. With a payload of 905kg and an impressive range of just over 200 miles, it's a great choice for all kinds of businesses, such as delivery and trade.
We currently have the new Maxus E Deliver for just £280.51 per month ex. VAT, and with tax and VAT incentives available for businesses, vehicle contract hire is a great way to manage your finances and save money.
