Find an Electric Car to Suit your Budget

Find an Electric Car to Suit your Budget

There has never been a better time to go electric! For all those considering a personal lease we have listed the zero emissions cars currently available in price order, so you can pick the electric car that suits your budget.

There is a host of benefits to zero emissions cars: if you are a frequent driver in London you will avoid the congestion charge and T-Charge, many areas offer free parking for electric vehicles, you will have fuel costs as low as £2.80 for 130 miles, you get to take advantage of the Governments generosity with the electric car grant and if you are a company car driver the benefit-in-kind rates for electric vehicles are very, very low!

Electric cars offer the same levels of comfort as any fuel consuming car, boasting the same features such as rear view camera, sat nav, air conditioning as well as driver aids including lane keep assist and cruise control depending on the model. All electric cars can be charged from the comfort of your own home using a standard plug, taking anything from 7-12 hours. Installing a ‘wall box’ at home reduces this charge time by around a half and fast charging using the public network will restore 80% of a battery's power in around 30 minutes on most electric cars. The public charging network is always growing so you will never be far away from somewhere to plug in - you can check the location of charging points on Zap Map.

So below are the electric vehicles you can lease from the least expensive to the most expensive …
