You will benefit from lower running costs, great range on even our cheaper electric lease deals, a low monthly lease fee, and a simple leasing contract procedure.

  • What's included in my electric car lease?

    Your standard contract hire includes:

    • Full manufacturer’s warranty for 3 – 5 years 
    • 8-year battery warranty on the majority of our new EVs  
    • Complete road tax during the length of your lease 
    • Free UK mainland delivery right to your door 

    With your standard lease, you will only be responsible for insurance, charging and fuel costs, damage, servicing, and maintenance.

    Your lender-maintained contract hire includes all of the above with a few extra additions. Those include: 

    • Servicing  
    • Maintenance 
    • MOT for leases over three years 
    • Breakdown recovery 
    All you’ll have to do is insure it, keep it charged, or add fuel.

  • Is it practical to lease an electric car?

    Leasing an electric car is a practical way to drive an EV, allowing you to experience all the benefits of an electric or hybrid for an affordable monthly lease price. Many worry about the range of electric cars and their performance levels, but the newer electric models have an exceptional range and are built to go the distance.

    Switching to an EV can sometimes be a daunting change, so leasing can be a way to ease you into driving an electric vehicle. With an FVL lease, you will have a dedicated electric specialist on board to help you make the transition from fuel to EV, answering any questions you may have.

  • Where can I change my electric car?

    Charging your EV is a lot easier than it seems. You can charge your electric car at home, in public areas such as shopping centres and supermarkets, at service stations, and at work.

  • How do I charge my electric car at home?

    You can install a home charger from our new charger supplier, Project EV, for as little as £499.99 Inc Vat (with current grants included). This allows you to charge up at home for just £13 for a full charge on a vehicle with a larger capacity battery. For example, on something like the new Mustang Mach-E, you will get a great range of 379 miles.

  • How long does it take to charge an electric car?

    The answer to that question may vary depending on your electric lease (d vehicle), its battery capacity, and the power of the charging point.

    To get a close estimate, you need to know the type of battery your car has. You will then need to check the power of the charging point you are about to use. You then divide your battery power number by the charger to gauge the length of time it would take to charge your car battery from flat to fully charged.

  • What is the range of an electric car?

    Some of the newest, more modern electric cars can travel for up to 250 miles. That’s pretty impressive! But it’s always worth bearing in mind that the range of your electric lease will vary slightly depending on what electric car you have, (the conditions) and how you drive it.

  • What is the average lifespan of an electric car battery?

    The battery life of an electric car varies depending on the type of battery. Many manufacturers give a 5 – 8 year warranty, but the battery can last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced.

    If you are leasing an electric, you won’t need to worry as you have full manufacturer’s warranty included in your contract hire with an 8-year battery warranty on most of our EVs.

  • How much does it cost to run an electric or hybrid?

    Compared to internal combustion vehicles, running an electric or hybrid can be a lot cheaper. For example, if you use around 9,000 miles per year, an EV could cost from as little as £500 on electricity. You wouldn’t get very far on the same amount of diesel! For more information, click here.

  • Is leasing an electric car worth it?

    Not only is Leasing an electric is economical, practical, and simple. If you are looking to switch to an electric or hybrid, leasing is a great way to drive one of the latest EVs for an affordable monthly price and benefit from no depreciation of your vehicle.

  • What's the difference between an electric and hybrid?

    An electric car, known as an EV (Electric Vehicle), is a car that is powered solely by an electric battery. Instead of filling up your tank with fuel, you charge up the car at a charging bank (using a charger). Unlike your traditional petrol and diesel-run (internal combustion engines, I.C.E) engines, EVs do not produce any (tailpipe) emissions. 

    Plug-in hybrids (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) are one of the most popular electric car leases out there. They mainly run on electricity, but they also have a traditional fuel engine that kicks in if you run out (run on a combination of electricity and fossil fuel. Some can go up to 50 miles on electric power alone. And you will have a petrol or diesel engine that’ll kick in when your charge runs out. You can also have some cars spread the EV power over your entire journey making your plug-in hybrid as economical as possible.)  Like an EV, you simply plug in and charge your hybrid’s electric battery at any charging point. And if you run out, the hybrid’s smart technology will then switch your car’s power source to the traditional engine run by either petrol or diesel.
