The best electric family cars to lease


The best electric family cars to lease

When it comes to finding the best electric family cars to lease, the market is becoming increasingly competitive.

However, it's important to appreciate that all of the cars mentioned here are great cars that just happen to be powered by an electric motor and battery.

They still have comfortable interiors, lots of practicality and great levels of equipment.

Also, electric contract hire family cars are good fun to drive with immediate acceleration and good battery ranges too.

One of the downsides to buying an electric car for many people is the price.

While the prices are coming down, they still remain more expensive than their petrol siblings.


Leasing an electric family car

This is where leasing an electric family car makes sense because drivers simply need to pay an initial payment, decide how many miles they will travel every year and then pay the monthly amount.

For that, they can get behind the wheel of an electric car that produces zero tailpipe emissions and help do their bit for the environment and have a practical, well-designed family car.

There's no doubt too that electric family cars will continue growing in popularity, mainly because petrol and diesel cars will be banned from sale in 2030.

And then in 2035, the government will ban hybrids that use a combustion engine.

Here, the Tilsun Leasing team take a look at some of the great contract hire family electric cars currently available.


Tesla Model 3

No list geared towards offering the best family cars to lease would not mention the Tesla Model 3.

Firstly, the Model 3 has been a game-changer and it is a hugely influential car.

Tesla is a renowned electric carmaker and here drivers get batteries delivering ranges from 278 miles to 360 miles.

The Tesla Model 3 car lease also offers value for money and drivers get to enjoy a futuristic interior that has no dials or screens.

Instead, there's just one very big infotainment display plus drivers get some of the best semi-autonomous driving technology currently available.

For those families needing to lease an electric car with a long range, then the Tesla Model 3 is certainly worth considering.


Peugeot e-208

There's a lot to like about the Peugeot e-208, from the great styling and excellent levels of handling.

There's also a futuristic cockpit with Peugeot's 3D i-Cockpit and drivers get to enjoy a range of 211 miles.

Everything about the e-208 matches the diesel and petrol versions for boot space and the cabin is a lovely place to spend time.

Drivers get a seven-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system, which includes Bluetooth connectivity and DAB radio. A larger display is an option.

The electric motor produces 136 HP to deliver a nippy performance, and it's packed with safety equipment including a clever cruise control system a help steer, brake and accelerate the vehicle on motorways.

If you are new to leasing electric cars, there's a lot to recommend the contract hire Peugeot e-208 with low running costs and reasonable contract hire prices.


Hyundai Kona Electric

Here at Tilsun Leasing, we really like the Hyundai Kona Electric which is an excellent small SUV for the modern family.

There's a good view for the driver and plenty of space for youngsters in the rear seats.

The boot size offers practicality, and the batteries of 39kWh or 64kWh offer ranges of either 189 miles or 300 miles.

The interior has a robust feel for plenty of family use and for the money, the car's handling and abilities impress.

It's a silent car to drive around town and a sound motorway cruiser to.

As a zero-emissions car, the Hyundai Kona electric car lease is a great choice for young families.


Volkswagen ID.3

Having mentioned the Kona Electric, there's a lot to like about the Volkswagen ID.3 for those families wanting an electric car lease.

The interior is futuristic, and this is a car that has been created from the ground up to be a purpose-built electric vehicle.

There's a lot to like about the exterior design and a lovely interior that sees drivers get a pair of digital displays for the infotainment and car information.

The range for the 150kWh battery is 263 miles, and in the version with the 77kWh battery, it's an impressive 340 miles.

The ID.3 is around the same size as a VW Golf, and it's a well-designed hatchback that delivers sophistication and impressive levels of usability - something for which this carmaker is renowned.

The handling is surprisingly balanced with agility, particularly around town.

This is a great new car in the first foray from Volkswagen into the electric vehicle sector - and it's a cracker.

It's also worth noting that other electric family cars to lease offer more style and prestige such as the excellent Mercedes EQC and the elegant Jaguar I-Pace - still one of the most fun electric cars for driving.

The I-Pace delivers a high-tech cabin with the EQC delivering a spacious interior and an upmarket feel.
