Personal Leasing with Drive Electric

for flexibility and choice
 

 

Our partner

To bring you our special handpicked electric car leasing offers every quarter, we’ve joined forces with DriveElectric one of the UK’s leading electric car lease providers. The DriveElectric team live and breathe electric cars. They have over 10 years’ experience successfully delivering thousands of electric cars and vans.

Why lease?

Leasing, instead of purchasing outright, offers a more affordable option so you can drive the car you really want. 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.

Our friendly team not only supply electric vehicles, we live and breathe them. We can help you find the right electric vehicle to fit in your life and are on hand to support you throughout your electric journey.

Providing you with unbiased advice, complete support and peace of mind, with our help it’s easy to make the switch to electric motoring.

How a car lease works

Step 1: Choose from any car currently on the market and decide the best term for the lease and mileage estimates. If you want some help deciding, our expert team can advise you on what types of vehicle and finance arrangements will best suit your needs.

Step 2: Once you have chosen your vehicle we will give you a personalised quote based on your selected terms. There are no hidden extras so, providing you return the vehicle within the terms of your contract, you will know exactly how much the vehicle is going to cost you each month. This is known as a ‘Personal Contract Hire’ agreement.

Step 3: Before ordering the vehicle we will tell you how long it will take to arrive from the manufacturer. If there is a gap between the delivery date and your requirements, we can talk to you about a short-term rental vehicle to plug the gap, keeping you mobile at all times.

Step 4: Once the lease has commenced, we will send you a monthly consolidated invoice for all of your funding and maintenance fees. If you need help at any stage during the lease, you can speak to your dedicated Account Manager directly on 01628 899727.

Personal Contract Hire

Personal Contract Hire (PCH) and Business Contract Hire (BCH) are long-term vehicle rental agreements. You pay for the use of the vehicle throughout your contract, then return the car to the finance company at the end of the agreement without any further obligations.


The benefits:

  • Fixed monthly rental makes it easier to budget
  • Terms and mileage to suit your needs
  • Wide range of vehicles to choose from
  • Optional full service and maintenance packages available
  • At the end of the rental period you simply hand the car back to us and are free to choose what you’d like next
     

Things to consider:

  • Personal Contract Hire is subject to status and credit acceptance
  • This is a hire product so you will not own the vehicle
  • Minimum duration is 24 months and 6,000 miles per annum
  • If selected – Service & maintenance package includes: manufacturer recommended servicing and tyres, and excludes misuse, accident damage and vehicle glass
  • Early termination can be expensive
  • If you have exceeded your agreed mileage, an excess mileage charge will be payable, worked out on a ‘pence per mile’ basis as set at the start of your contract
  • 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 then have the option to purchase the vehicle at the end of your agreement at an agreed additional cost.
 

The benefits:

  • Fixed monthly payment makes it easier to budget
  • Terms and mileage to suit your needs
  • 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



Things to consider:

  • Personal Contract Purchase is subject to status and credit acceptance
  • Minimum duration is 24 months and 6,000 miles per annum
  • If selected – Service & maintenance package includes: manufacturer recommended servicing and tyres, and excludes misuse, accident damage and vehicle glass
