Benefits of Leasing an Electric Van

Benefits of Leasing an Electric Van

Considering investing in a new electric van? Our team of new van experts at Vansdirect reveals five reasons to consider leasing an electric van.

As with electric cars, the number of electric vans on our roads is growing daily. But what are the real benefits of electric van ownership? More specifically, how could driving one support your business?

In this article, we’ve rounded up the top five benefits of leasing an electric van. Read on for all you need to know.

Buying incentives

Electric vans typically have a higher initial price point than petrol or diesel vans, due to their enhanced technology. Though with buying incentives, you can get financial support to cover the costs of leasing an electric van.

From reduced road tax rates to the government’s Plug-in Van Grant (PiVG), there are several financial incentives available. Some incentives even extend to selected local authorities, with the offer of free parking and charging in certain areas. You can even get financial support when it comes to installing a home charging point.

Lower running costs

Another great thing about electric vans is that they tend to be far cheaper to run than their petrol and diesel counterparts. Since fully electric vans are powered solely by electricity, there’s no need to pay fuel costs. There also tend to be fewer complex components and moving parts meaning you can expect lower maintenance costs.

Let’s not forget how much you’ll save when driving around in cities. Electric vans are exempt from Low Emission Zone (LEZ) and Clean Air Zone (CAZ) charges, which will bring great savings to your business. Currently, non-compliant vehicles in London pay a £15 Congestion Charge and a £12.50 Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charge.

Friendly to the environment

The aim of the government’s push for replacing petrol and diesel vehicles with electric is to reduce harmful emissions. Electric vans produce zero emissions, so an increase would help to improve air quality and reduce pollution in many towns and cities.

Good for the image of your business

If you’re looking to improve your eco-credentials, leasing an electric van is a great way to do just that. With a stronger focus than ever before on climate change and the environment, people are looking to make more sustainable choices. This ranges from the food they eat, to the clothes they wear – and even the services they use.

Smooth and comfortable performance

Electric motors offer instant torque, meaning they provide a smooth, easy-going drive. They also tend to be nippy and agile around urban areas and towns, making for a more relaxed driving experience. A benefit you’re sure to enjoy when making deliveries or drop-offs around busy areas.
