Best Electric Cars To Lease (2020)

The new era brings the use of exciting electric drive vehicles. Electric Car Leasing is becoming increasingly popular with the general public and with businesses in the UK as they acknowledge the growing benefits of leasing an electric car.

However, electric cars are still often misunderstood. These vehicles are full electric plug-in variants unlike well-known hybrids such as the Toyota Prius that simply re-use the energy lost in deceleration and breaking. In this list we run through some of the best Electric Cars Leasing options in 2020 as we look at electric vehicles of all weights, power and functionalities.


Why Lease An Electric Car?

Benefits of leasing an electric car are as follows;

  1. Since electric cars have a relatively lower depreciation rate, electric car leasing deals tend to be relatively cheap, even though electric cars are a bit pricier.
  2. Even, if an electric car lease is more expensive than a petrol variant, the savings that can be made on fuel often outweigh the extra cost of the lease. Take a look at leasing on the Tesla Model S and the Tesla Model X which now offer free Tesla Supercharging (fuel)! Think how much you pay per month on petrol and take that off the price of a Tesla lease and you’ll see why they are one of the fastest growing brands in the UK.
  3. Due to a zero percent production of tailpipe emissions, unlike cars running on petrol or diesel that emit various harmful pollutants, electric cars help in improving air quality.
  4. Because of these benefits in low air pollution, the government offers additional financial incentives to lease an electric car.
  5. You often get more space in an electric car. Because there is no need for an engine, the chassis can be made larger and there is often an additional “frunk” where items can be stored where the engine would be.
  6. Because Electric vehicles provide instant torque, unlike petrol/diesel cars, they often vastly out-perform petrol/diesel vehicles in the same class. For example, the Tesla Model X (a large SUV) is known for out-performing Lamborghinis!
