Leasing Electric Vehicles with Johnson & Perrott Fleet
As a leasing provider we are seeing more and more requests for fully electric vehicles. Newer models now benefit from a higher range (530kms on a full charge approx. for example) so in theory should be able to cover most journeys one a full charge. This compared to previous EV options that often caused ‘range anxiety’ will provide more certainty for those thinking of making the change.
The greater range comes from bigger and better battery technology. In simple terms the higher the kilowatt of the battery the better the range will be.
There are many more options available now than ever before with sizes and costs to suit all budgets.
Commercial vans, commercial 2 seater car vans, small hatchbacks, mid size Suvs and larger Suv offerings can now cover a huge range of requirements.
