DriveElectric has launched its new website which allows personal and business customers to lease an electric vehicle (EV) online.

Customers can select and configure their EV on the new platform, choosing features such as colour and options, along with the length of the lease.

The EV leasing company claimed the option of quick delivery times “for some vehicles” is available, if an EV is wanted faster than factory-build lead times can deliver.

Mike Potter, managing director of DriveElectric, said: “Motorists wanting to make the shift to electric vehicles can now do so more easily and enjoy benefits including lower running costs and a better driving experience, as well as zero tailpipe emissions.

“The ability to lease an EV online is just the latest in a continuing journey of new initiatives here at DriveElectric aimed at improving our service to customers even further.”

The growth in the number of drivers considering buying a battery electric vehicle (BEV) as their next car has slowed, according to a new study.

Almost 40% of car buyers are reconsidering the purchase of an EV after the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced plans to make them eligible for VED road tax.

Franchised dealers can increase tyre sales as a result of the growing number of new EVs and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) on sale.
