Electrical / Hybrid Leasing from AVL
Car technology has advanced rapidly in recent years, with more electric vehicles on the road now than ever. Many people are choosing electric and hybrid vehicles however the upfront cost to buy one can be expensive.
Leasing offers an affordable way to drive a vehicle that has a low impact on the environment without costing a small fortune.
The Benefits of Leasing
Leasing a vehicle rather than buying one outright provides several benefits. In a traditional purchase (or hire purchase) arrangement, there can be significant initial costs followed by a monthly cost to pay off any credit secured on the vehicle.
Once the vehicle is fully yours, the value will have depreciated, and should you wish to switch to a new vehicle you will need to sell the first one, which can be quite a stressful task. Leasing a vehicle means there is no risk of depreciation and you do not have to worry about selling the car.

The Difference Between Electric, Hybrid, and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles
Although they are often grouped together, there are differences between the three types of vehicles.
Electric Car Leasing
Leasing an electric car is very environmentally friendly. Purely driven by an electric motor, electric cars produce no CO2 emissions which means the minimum amount of negative impact on the environment. They are extremely efficient and are very cheap to run.
These vehicles are fully electric and do not contain a standard combustion engine. Early adopters of such vehicles often found that the battery life was not as good as they hoped for, but modern electric vehicles have taken care of this. The Tesla Model S is a popular fully electric vehicle and can run for over 150 miles before needing to be charged.
However, that is only the start – the Audi E-Tron 55 Quattro can achieve around 200 miles per charge, the Nissan Leaf E+ can reach 220 miles, and Hyundai Kona Electric can get to 260 miles. The Tesla Model S Long Range Plus has an official range of over 400 miles per charge, and optimizations and software updates will consistently increase the range each model of car can achieve.
Conventional Hybrid Leasing
If you choose to lease a hybrid car (HEV – Hybrid Electric Vehicle), you will also be producing very low CO2 emissions. This is because a hybrid vehicle runs on both an electric motor and a traditional combustion engine. Using both methods of propulsion keeps the on-the-road cost low, as the energy needed for the vehicle to use the electric motor is generated whilst driving.
This is done by using two different methods.
The first method is Regenerative Braking which captures energy that is wasted during braking, usually in the form of heat and kinetic energy. This is converted to electrical energy to be stored in the on-board battery.
The second method is to use an electrical generator that runs directly off the combustion engine, using the natural motion of the engine to generate and store electricity.
The key to the success of hybrid vehicles is the ability for the electric motor to be used independently or in tandem with the combustion engine as needed. When minimal power is needed, perhaps at low speeds or while cruising, the electric motor is used exclusively. If the vehicle needs more power to drive up a hill or in other more challenging circumstances, the combustion engine is used as well to deliver extra power and torque.
Because both systems work together, less fuel is needed to keep the vehicle going, resulting in a lower cost per mile for the driver, lower emissions, and a smooth driving experience.
