If you drive less than 100 miles a day and have off-street parking, the answer is yes.
Electric cars are highly efficient, and they generally have much lower operating costs than those of conventional vehicles.
Electric cars offer fuelling options not typically available to conventional vehicles, including charging at home, work, public charging stations, or a combination of these sites.
Today’s electric cars are state-of-the-art vehicles ready to match or surpass the performance of their conventional counterparts.
Compared with conventional vehicles, electric cars typically produce lower levels of air pollutants and greenhouse gases, even when taking into account the emissions associated with electricity production.
DriveElectric are the UK’s leading provider of leased Electric Vehicles and offer finance options for all makes and model, from all manufacturers, including the BMW i3, Renault Zoe, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Audi E-Tron.

The accumulation of key greenhouse gases (most importantly CO2 and methane) in the atmosphere due to human activities is contributing to climate change. Unless action is taken to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, the whole pattern of the world’s weather could change, increasing the frequency and intensity of heatwaves, floods, droughts and storms.
The Climate Change Act (2008) requires the UK Government to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 34% by 2020 and 80% by 2050 from 1990 levels in the UK.
In 2013, domestic and international transport accounted for 26% of all UK greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, the most significant greenhouse gas savings are likely to come from improving the fuel efficiency of conventional vehicles and increased use of sustainable biofuels.
"I have been driving a Nissan Leaf supplied by DriveElectric for over three years. The car is fantastic, is well engineered and a pleasure to drive. It feels very futuristic and clean and conventional internal combustion cars now seem primitive in comparison, so I will never buy another. I love the way the Leaf's satnav helps me to find charging points and have used it to travel quite significant distances without any problems."
"It's not just a great EV, it's a great car. It's quiet, it's comfortable, and it's spacious. It's safe. The driving experience is fantastic."
"My BMW i3 is the only car I have ever owned that gives me a grin every time I drive it. Cannot fault the service from DriveElectric, this is my second EV supplied by them and I'll be back for my third next year."
"Vicky at DriveElectric was a great help through the leasing process, including helping to organise test drives, putting us in touch with the right people and answering all our questions. As this was for our first electric car it was a great experience to feel relaxed heading into somewhat unknown territory."
