Why Lease a Hybrid Car?
Hybrid cars are more popular than ever. These are vehicles that have an electric motor as well as a traditional combustion engine that is usually powered by petrol. The combustion engine charges the batteries, and the motor is used when more power is needed, such as when the car is accelerating.
Many people choose to lease a hybrid car because they want to drive a more efficient vehicle. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, a hybrid is a simple way to do this.
Because a hybrid can help to cut down fuel consumption, this means you can save money on fuel. The batteries in a hybrid car are often recharged by using energy that would otherwise be wasted through features like regenerative braking, helping you to reduce fuel even further.
Some hybrids can run on electricity alone for short distances, which is a great option if you don’t need to drive far every day. Leasing a hybrid is a good idea for city drivers who make short journeys to work and back because they can use the motor, even more, cutting down on fuel even further.
Hybrids also tend to be reliable cars, though of course, it depends on the make and model. Because the engine runs less than in a normal car because you are using the electric motor more, this leads to less wear and tear, which itself means repairs are required less frequently.
There are also slightly lower taxes on new hybrids that cost under £40,000. It’s not a huge difference, but it can add up for fleets, so leasing hybrids for your company fleet can be a good option.
Finally, there are many models to choose from like the Toyota Prius, Lexus ES and PHEVs (plug-in hybrids) like the Mini Cooper SE Countryman, so there is something for everyone.
When you factor in the reduced fuel costs and/or personal tax liability it really might mean now is the time to make the change.
