I went for a lease for 3 main reasons:
- This was my first EV and I treated it like a trial. Before COVID we'd have been driving a lot more trips, long trips especially. Now it seems silly to think an EV wouldn't have been fine for us but it does feel like a big plunge beforehand.
- EV technology will explode over the next 3 years so who knows how competitive or valuable 2020 models will be by that point. Prices will drop, range and choice will go up.
- I got a great deal via salary sacrifice due to the tax changes (£360/mo including servicing, insurance, tyres, breakdown cover).
