If your business is looking to expand your fleet or simply improve your environmental credentials, then electric vehicle (EV) car leasing is for you. From the latest technology to fixed monthly payments, there are plenty of ways you can benefit.
That’s why this month we wanted to create a guide to EV car leasing, to help you make the most informed decision for the future of your fleet.
Why should you consider leasing an electric vehicle?
Leasing electric vehicles for both business and personal use is an increasingly popular way of reducing monthly spend, helping to reduce the impact of cars on the environment and accessing the latest models on the market.
Not only do you not have to worry about ongoing maintenance costs, but you’re also able to maintain control over your finances thanks to the fixed, monthly payment.
Which vehicles are available to lease?
When it comes to which vehicles, the market is very much open to you. If your leasing company does not have the vehicle in stock, then their team of consultants are able to source it for you.
This gives you greater choice and flexibility since the technology in electric vehicles is evolving at such a fast pace. With the latest safety features, enhanced mileage and new models on the market, there has never been a greater time to choose a vehicle, leasing helps you to update the vehicle(s) every 2/3 years as technology and vehicle mileage range improves.
How will you benefit from leasing an electric vehicle?
Reduced maintenance costs
With most leasing contracts from GKL, the cost of maintenance and servicing is included, so you do not have to worry about unplanned, unforeseen maintenance bills. Your maintained contract would cover all general wear and tear and can be carried out by any main dealership.
Fixed monthly payments
For both businesses and personal car drivers, maintaining control over monthly spending is important, and with a fixed monthly payment covering the cost of the vehicle, you are able to budget accordingly.
Access to a wider range of vehicles
With so many makes and models available, leasing a vehicle gives you access to every single car or van on the market. The choice is yours, you just have to decide on which is most suited for your specific needs and budget. With this in mind, it can be very daunting so call our team today and let them help you out, we are real people and keen to find out what would work best for your business.
No risk of vehicle depreciation
One of the main concerns for vehicle owners is the depreciation cost as soon as they drive away. When it comes to leasing, this is not something you need to concern yourself with. Since you are leasing the vehicle, the leasing company takes on the depreciation value. With EV residual values varying so much, let the lease company take the risk and drive worry free.
Leasing Process and Cost Comparisons
This is similar to any other leasing process in terms of quoting and ordering but we ensure you are aware of the charging implications and requirements as well as best practices with EV’s. Including charge leads, charge times and what is best for your business.
We can also assess the benefits of leasing EV’s vs outright purchase of vehicles through cost comparisons, helping you to make an informed decision. This also includes leasing EV’s vs standard Diesel cars or vans.
In summary, EV car leasing is a great way for businesses to refocus on the future of their organisation, reduce their costs and enhance their environmental credentials.
