With an EV lease, you are responsible to provide the facilities to charge your car. Not all electric vehicles that are available for an EV lease, come with home charging stations free of charge. All electric vehicles do come with some type of charging cable but this may be either the three-pin charging cable or the type 2 charging cable so you will need to make note of what is required when you lease an electric vehicle.
It is most convenient to charge an electric car where it is parked anyway (which is about 95% of the time). The most common place for this is at home and then workplace charging. On average 60% of an electric vehicle’s charging time comes from home charging, 30% occurs at work, 7% destination charging and 3% is enroute charging. So, when you look at leasing an electric vehicle ensure that you have the space and convenience to facilitate home charging as this is the most common place for you to charge your car!

Your electric car range can be altered by number of factors, including external temperature, operating the heating or cooling systems and the speed at which you are driving.

Yes, the electric car grant will have been deducted from the total price of the car. This means that your monthly payment will have a discount already put on it - making sure you are getting the best price for your electric car lease.
There are two types of electric chargers; a three-pin plug or Type 2 charging plug. A 3-pin plug plugs directly into your plug sockets at home so you can charge at home without needing to install a charge point. However, a Type 2 charging point is considered a faster and safer way of charging your vehicle.
If you are worried about the cost of installing a charging point to your home, the government offer an Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme which provides grant funding towards the cost of installing electric vehicle charge points at domestic properties across the UK. You can check out this government grant scheme on their website.
