Electric vehicles are an increasingly attractive option, due to their lower running costs, the expanding choice of models available and intensifying concerns about air quality & climate change.
Leasing an electric vehicle has many benefits over purchasing as new technologies are evolving at unprecedented rates. Both battery technologies and regeneration techniques continue to improve, making older electric cars depreciate in value. This makes leasing an electric car more attractive as there are fewer concerns regarding depreciation.
Electric cars are ULEZ compliant and congestion charge exempt. The UK government continue to drive new financial charges towards petrol and diesel vehicles with some expecting this to expand in years to come.
Leasing an electric car allows you to hand back the car after the lease term ends and replace it with new and improved technology.

Electric cars are vehicles that solely run on electricity. They are powered by a battery, which is charged by plugging it into an electric outlet. The first electric car was invented in 1837 by Robert Anderson of Scotland. The first mass-produced one was invented in 1890 by Thomas Parker, who founded the company that still bears his name today. These electric cars were seen as a novelty because they couldn't travel more than 40 miles before needing to be recharged and they were expensive to produce and buy.
However, with the advent of new technologies like lithium-ion batteries, the range and cost of electric vehicles have decreased significantly, making this type of vehicle much more appealing to consumers. In recent years there has been a surge in demand for these types of vehicles as people have become increasingly concerned about climate change and air pollution caused by traditional fossil fuel vehicles.
The first modern electric car was created in 1990 by Tesla Motors with its Model S sedan. Tesla is an American company founded by Elon Musk in 2003 who is also the CEO of SpaceX and co-founder of Paypal.
Nowadays, most believe that the electric car is the future with most major brands dedicating all resources to moving away from the internal combustion engine.
