Electric cars are significantly more expensive to buy than their petrol-powered counterparts. Some cost almost twice as much as a similar internal combustion model, which immediately obliterates any savings a household can make by switching to battery-powered motoring. Combined with the much shorter range of electric cars and consumer worries about battery degradation, we often have a hard time convincing people to buy an EV outright.
Leasing is a much easier prospect to recommend, though. With prices only a little bit higher than internal combustion vehicles and a bit more peace of mind in relation to the condition of the battery, consumers are increasingly turning to electric car leasing in order to participate in the EV revolution. Through our partner Select Car Leasing, Telegraph Cars readers are eligible for a fully discounted arrangement fee (valued at £234) on the cost of a lease when using the code SCLTELE19 – please see below for terms and conditions, and for more information on the cars available.
