There must be a bunch of us Soul EVers who took up the excellent Drive Electric deal about 2 years ago coming up to end of lease (or already ended). I've extended mine for a year - happy with the car and got a good quote for 15k of extra mileage. All very simples, you just go through Lex Autolease customer services.

What are others doing, anyone handing it back?

Our lease runs out in July. Lex has offered to extend another year, 10k miles for payments £6/month lower than current starting March. I just have to complete the paperwork. Seems an obvious choice. If we can't afford a Model Y after that, then we could extend for a 5th year.

I asked DE about extending the lease on our Soul shortly after delivery, they said no at that time.
Given that we still really like the car and it's quite frankly a splendid deal at £199/month for 8k miles/year I will certainly be interested in extending for another year.
Enquiries are through Lex not DE?

"you were lucky" I was not offered that option via DE despite asking three times, had it been available I would almost certainly have taken it and as a bonus wouldn't have been in this crappy i3.
Perhaps I should have gone through Lex rather than DE that didnt occur to me.
Hopefully your experience / post will help others.
BTW when handing it back to Lex eventually check out my thread on "missing" charge cable.

Yes, Lex give you the quote and then if accepted send paperwork to sign - you then just scan and send by email. When I spoke to them they said you can extend for up to 2 yrs, but only 12 months at a time. It should work out cheaper than your current deal as well, at least it is at the moment.
