12 November 2020

When you hear the Electric vs Petrol debate, there is a lot of misinformation and confusion surrounding the subject. But, with the rise of Electric Vehicle sales and more manufacturers producing their own EV's, you might be thinking whether a switch to electric is right for you.

There are obvious pros and cons that come with comparing the electric engine and combustion engine, but with the future of vehicles looking to be electric let’s take a look at what will best suit your lifestyle.

Pros of Electric Vehicle Leasing

Environmentally friendly: The most common and most impactful pro is how eco-friendly EVs are, emitting zero greenhouse gases, electric vehicles have a minor environmental impact compared to a combustion engine being very harmful for the environment.

Sound: When driving a combustion engine, you are greeted with a lot of noise from the engine and even while idling. Most EVs produce a minimal amount of sound from their electric engines and for some people that can be great, however there are the car enthusiasts out there that love their cars to be loud. 

Benefit-in-kind: If you drive a fully electric company car, you will not be required to pay benefit-in-kind in the 20/21 tax year. 


With the electric 'wave' being very new to the automotive industry, we know buying a brand new electric car can be a tad pricey and for many people, means that they do not get the option to 'go green'. This is why leasing is a great choice for people who want to take advantage of the benefits electric vehicles have to offer in an affordable manner.
