There has never been a better time to consider an electric car lease

With the 2030 diesel and petrol ban on the horizon, car manufacturers are working relentlessly to electrify their line-ups.

All the while, the demand from drivers to go green has never been higher. Manufacturers across the globe have continuously been raising the bar when it comes to EVs.

Seeking the best range, the boldest design and the most innovative technology, the list of electric cars available to us is getting stronger with every passing day.

Many manufacturers, like Volvo and Land Rover, are targeting a fully electrified lineup by 2030 and as a result, we're poised to see an influx of exciting new electric cars on the road in the coming months and years. 

Mercedes and Tesla are also among the manufacturers to announce exciting plans for the UK market recently, so let’s look ahead to the best electric cars set to hit these shores.

Mercedes-Benz EQG Concept

Mercedes EQG

An all-electric version of the brilliant Mercedes G-Class, the EQG promises to be a spectacle when it finally hits UK roads.

The G Wagon is a true icon among the Mercedes line-up. Designed to combine the height of luxury with ludicrous performance, the G Wagon is truly unique.

The G-Class comes packed with an illustrious history, but this EQG, which is filled with both style and substance, points towards an exciting, greener future for the German heavyweight.

Staying true to the famous design that has made the G-Class so popular, the EQG will retain many of its famous features, including the flat side-opening tailgate, box-like shape and guaranteed road presence.

Mercedes are confident that by going electric the EQG will not lose out on any off-road performance and will be just as comfortable in difficult terrains as its combustion engine alternative. We can’t wait to see this!

Hyundai Ioniq 6 Concept

Hyundai Ioniq 6

Hyundai are making great strides in their bid to electrify their range. Following the success of the Ioniq 5, we will soon get to see the brand’s second fully-fledged EV, the Ioniq 6.

This all-electric saloon is expected to launch in the UK next year and it’ll be punching high in its ambitions, aiming to rival the Tesla Model 3 or even the Porsche Taycan – to which its styling could be very similar.

The Ioniq 6 is expected to have a strong Ioniq 5 influence, including a similarly futuristic interior.

Built on the same E-GMP platform as the Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 is poised to surpass the 300-mile range mark and have some hefty horsepower to match.

Following on from the 6, Hyundai are expected to launch the Ioniq 7, an all-electric SUV in the coming years. The future is looking bright for the South Korean manufacturer, making it a fantastic time to consider our latest Hyundai lease deals.

Tesla Model Y

Tesla Model Y

If you’re considering Tesla leasing then you may want to stick around for the Model Y, which is expected to arrive in the UK next year.

The Model Y is a mid-size SUV, perfect for someone that wants something bigger than a Tesla Model 3 lease, without jumping all the way up to a Model X.

It will have a claimed range of around 314 miles and will go from 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds.

Tesla claim it will be more than capable in the rain, snow and even on off-road conditions thanks to its superior traction control – now we just need some snow to hit the UK!

One of the major benefits of a Tesla lease is having access to the Supercharger Network, which will reportedly allow the Model Y to recoup 168 miles of charge in just 15 minutes.

Prices for the Model Y are expected to start from around £45,000, but car leasing creates a cost-effective monthly payment that could drastically lower the overall cost.

Volkswagen ID.5

Volkswagen ID.5

Volkswagen are continuing their fantastic electric offering by announcing plans for the ID.5.

Building on the huge success of both the Volkswagen ID.3 and ID.4, the 5 is a coupe-style SUV.

Model dependent, the ID.5 is expected to surpass the ID.4’s 300+ claimed range figure, with Volkswagen continuing to boast some of the best-performing electric cars on the market.

Early pictures suggest presence and style will be guaranteed with the ID.5, much like the ID.3 and 4. In terms of design, the ID.5 may not look completely different to the ID.4, as it will largely share many of its underpinnings.

A more-performance focused GTX model is expected to top the range for those looking for a bit more oomph.

It is not expected to hit the UK until 2022 at the earliest, with prices tipped to start from around £45,000. 

Carparison’s VW lease deals create a cost-effective monthly payment for those looking for a more affordable route into the world of EVs.

Range Rover Steering Wheel

Range Rover Electric

A fully electric Range Rover is on its way, but it’s a model that we may have to wait for. As the JLR brand continue to overhaul their lineup, they have several impressive hybrid models already available.

The first fully electric car that we could see in their lineup might be the all-electric Range Rover, but don’t get too excited, as reports suggest it may not be available until 2024.

This electric variant will be the first of its kind and it promises to be just as luxurious as its predecessors. 

It is expected to offer at least 300 miles from a single charge and have practical rapid charging times too.

Competing with the likes of the Aston Martin DBX or the Bentley Bentayga, it is up against stiff competition. 

However, given the popularity of the Range Rover and Land Rover leases over the years, it is hard to envisage anything but sky-high demand for this electric alternative.
