In the next episode of the Electric Moments series we look at the real costs and savings of electric vehicle ownership.
One of the main reasons we regularly hear for why people can’t make the switch to electric is that electric cars are too expensive, but is this really true?
In the next episode of our Electric Moments series with LeasePlan, Robert talks to Matt Walters, Head of Consultancy Services and Customer Value at LeasePlan, about the total ownership cost of an EV and how switching to an EV could save you more money than you might realise. It’s true that the initial cost of buying, or leasing, an electric car is typically higher than petrol or diesel cars but significant savings can be made in terms of fuel, maintenance and government grants, incentives and exemptions which can make EVs much cheaper overall.
We also hear from real people about their experiences of driving EVs, how they made the switch and why they’ll never look back.
If you’re considering an electric car, the best thing to do is try one! You can also use LeasePlan’s tool to quickly find out if an electric vehicle is right for you.
As a global leasing company, LeasePlan manage nearly two million vehicles across more than 30 countries and have over five decades of experience to draw on. This gives them the ability to make a real difference to the world – and they are seizing the opportunity by putting sustainability at the heart of everything they do.
