Your Questions Answered
What types of electrified vehicles are available to lease?
There are three electrified vehicles available to lease. A battery electric car (BEV) is powered solely by an electric motor and rechargeable batteries. You charge by plugging in at home or using the national charging network. A plug-in hybrid (PHEV) has a petrol or diesel engine as well as an electric motor. The battery can be plugged in and charged like a fully electric car. A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) has a petrol or diesel engine and an electric motor but the battery can only be charged by the petrol or diesel engine.
What is the typical range of an electric vehicle?
The electric range of an EV varies by make and model but, generally, electric cars can travel between 200-400 kilometres on a single charge. All vehicle are given a Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) battery range figure but there are a number of factors that impact the real life battery performance of an electric vehicle, such as payload and outside temperature.
How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle?
Home Charging takes typically 6-8 hours; Public Charging: 1-6 hours; Fast Charging: around 30 minutes for an 80pc charge. High Powered Charging: 100km in six minutes. Different cars will charge at different rates using the same charger.
Are electric vehicles more expensive than their internal combustion engine equivalents?
Despite the government grants and VRT relief available, EV’s are still more expensive versus their ICE equivalents from an upfront cost perspective. However, when you take into consideration maintenance and fuel costs over the life of a lease, the overall running costs of an EV is lower than a petrol and diesel vehicle.
