Lease options – for flexibility & affordability

Electric cars have low running costs but are expensive to purchase outright. By leasing the car you don’t need to worry about what it’s resale value will be later on, you simply make a regular monthly payment.

At the end of the lease period you can simply hand the car back to us, with no further obligation, or ‘upgrade’ to a newer model and continue to enjoy the benefits of electric motoring.

    • You must return the vehicle in a well maintained condition. Any damage over and above that stated in the Fair Wear and Tear Guide will be subject to additional charges
    • The vehicle must be insured with full comprehensive cover
    • You will never own the vehicle as there is no option to buy it

Personal Contract Purchase:

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) is a popular finance option for customers who want to own the car but can’t access sufficient funds to pay for the new car outright upfront.

You pay an initial payment, followed by a series of monthly payments for an agreed duration. The interest charged is calculated at the beginning and is fixed for the length of the agreement.

You have the option to purchase the vehicle at the end of your agreement at an agreed additional cost.

The benefits:

  • Fixed monthly payment
  • Any interest charges are unaffected by fluctuations in interest rates and cannot be changed for the duration allowing you to plan and budget
  • Terms and mileage to suit
  • Wide range of cars to choose from
  • At the end of the agreement, subject to payment of an Option to Purchase fee, you take ownership of the vehicle
  • Optional full service and maintenance packages may be available

Testimonials

  • "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."
