A choice for everyone

Electric cars have a variety of battery ranges – from 100 to 300 miles. Not sure how far that is? 100 miles is the distance from London to Birmingham.

Cheaper running costs

Driving an electric car can cost a third of the price per mile than petrol and diesel cars.

Automatic driving

If you can only drive an automatic car, electric cars could be a great option as they all have automatic gearboxes.

Getting an electric car on the Scheme is more affordable than buying or leasing elsewhere.

A greener lifestyle

Electric cars have zero carbon emissions, a huge reduction in CO2, and cleaner air quality.

My favourite thing is the quietness. There’s no engine noise, gears or clutch to worry about. It’s just a dream to drive.
