New research suggests that leasing a battery electric vehicle (BEV) is 19% cheaper than financing a new vehicle on personal contract purchase (PCP).

Auto Lease Compare analysed pricing data for its 10 most popular BEVs and found that leasing was the most cost-effective option on 9/10 vehicles.

Kaz Datoo co-founder of Auto Lease Compare said: “one of the most important factors the industry faces with EVs, is making them affordable to the average consumer – this is where leasing comes in.  Without affordable options, the market won’t move over to electric vehicles at the pace required.  Luckily, with our Car Leasing Comparison platform, consumers can find the most competitive deals on the market, saving them money. Leasing (PCH) is a the most cost-efficient way to drive a brand-new EV.”
