What are the advantages of leasing an electric car?

It's important to ask yourself what's in it for you when it comes to leasing an electric car. long-term leasing instead of buying one? There are several possible reasons.

Lower monthly costs

Although prices are falling steadily over time electric cars are still a little more expensive than combustion-powered cars (diesel or petrol). Let's take the example of a classic combustion Volkswagen Golf. The base price starts at €26,560, while the equivalent electric model in the same range, the Volkswagen ID.3 starts at €46,750. A not inconsiderable difference, therefore, and one to be taken into account when considering the purchase of a new vehicle.

In addition, it should be noted that electric cars have low depreciation most of the timeThis means that financing offers can be similar to those for gasoline-powered cars. To take a second example, leasing prices for the Renault Zoe E-Tech start at around €376 per month. The same prices apply to an equivalent Renault Clio petrol car!

Great fuel economy

Then there's the most obvious benefit, and often the reason why a company or even an individual decides to go all-electric. The electric cars cost less per kilometer to fill up than gasoline-powered cars. The cost of a full charge for an electric car is much lower than a full tank of diesel or petrol. Even though fuel consumption varies from model to model, it is generally 15 kWh/100 km. For the most gas-guzzling models, consumption consumption is more like 20 kWh/100 km. The cost of a full recharge for an electric car is approximately 2 euros for a 100 km recharge compared with €10 of fuel for a combustion model for 100 km.

Fuel is already a very expensive commodity, and as you know, it's in short supply at the moment. The difficulty of obtaining it and the closure of service stations explain this difficulty in finding petrol. This is an additional argument that encourages companies to electrify their fleetfearing for their business in the event of a situation like this.

They also emit 3 to 4 times more CO2 than a combustion engine.. Gasoline, diesel and hybrid cars emit carbon dioxide and other pollutants that are harmful to the planet. So, in the long term, driving electric helps to improve air quality where you are.

Lower risks than direct purchasing
