What your electric car costs

We have a wide range of electric cars and we’re working to making them more affordable for you. You might be able to have a home chargepoint installed at no extra cost, or you’ll get free access to over 9,000 public chargepoints.

You can choose from

Every electric car will cost you all of your allowance, but you can choose how much extra money you want to put towards it. You'll need to pay for the electricity you use and any Advance Payment.

All of your allowance

There are many electric cars on the Scheme that do not need an Advance Payment. You’ll just pay all of your mobility allowance. This is known as a 'variable' lease. We'll always receive your total mobility allowance, even if it goes up in the future.

All of your allowance and an Advance Payment

This is your total mobility allowance, even if it goes up, plus a one-off Advance Payment.You’ll need to pay an Advance Payment for most electric cars. This is the difference between your allowance payments and the cost over three years. This is a 'variable' lease too.

We’ve released our latest price list, and we continue to provide great value in our wide range of brand-new cars, including even more long-range electric cars with a reduced Advance Payment. Discover more

We’ll arrange and cover the cost of a home chargepoint and a standard installation, or you can access over 9,000 public bp pulse or other chargepoints

Conditions apply. You’ll need to pay extra if it’s a non-standard installation.

Things to consider

Advance Payments

How topping up your allowance with your own money can help:

  • Choose from a wider choice of electric cars
  • Part exchange your old, non-Scheme car against your Advance Payment to help pay for it
  • Use your New Vehicle Payment to help towards your Advance Payment

Price freeze

We update our prices every three months to make sure you’re getting the best deal.

Our 'price freeze' means the price at the time you apply is locked, even if it changes before you get your vehicle.

Extras and getting adaptations

You can choose optional extras, like heated seats and privacy glass. You’ll need to pay extra for these.

We recommend you get your adaptations at start of your lease, if you need them. If you decide you need them later, we can still add them after your lease has started, but you’ll need to pay for them separately.
