There's no doubt that there's a growing trend for drivers switching to battery power, but which are the best ranges in electric car lease models?
This is an important question if you are racking up lots of miles every year or want to undertake a long journey.
That's because many of us still struggle with 'range anxiety' which is the fear that we will run out of power before reaching our destination.
When you are looking to lease an electric vehicle, you should check the official range figures which make up the Tilsun Leasing deals because not all of them are the same.
For example, one of the best is the Tesla Model 3 'Long Range' which offers an astonishing range of 363 miles, and the Volkswagen ID.3 offers 340.
There are many benefits to switching to electric motoring instead of leasing a petrol or diesel-powered car, and with great lease deals available, for example, on the stylish Hyundai Ioniq or the Kia EV6, means now is a great time to consider a contract hire deal on an EV.
Here, we look at the top five of the longest-range electric cars for leasing.
The contract hire Tesla Model S is an impressive vehicle with an official range of 396 miles.
It takes 15 hours to recharge the battery fully, but there is a rapid recharge time of 30 minutes to reach 80% of the battery's capacity.
The Model S is a well-designed and practical car with lots of comfort onboard and the range will depend on your driving style but with a growing network of Tesla's supercharger charging points, then long journeys become a breeze.
We should also mention the Tesla Model 3 with a range of 363 miles and a recharge time of 11.5 hours.
The rapid recharge time is 22 minutes, and this is an affordable electric car to lease.
The Volkswagen ID.3 car lease is the German carmaker's first foray into all-electric motoring - and it's a fantastic creation.
The battery range is 340 miles, with a full recharging time of 12 hours. The rapid recharge time is 34 minutes.
The ID.3 is a futuristic car packed with technology and since it's built on a platform dedicated to electric power, there's plenty of space onboard too. The top speed is restricted to 99 mph but it's a great car for a commute.
When it first appeared, the contract hire Jaguar I-Pace was the best electric SUV available - and it is still one of the best.
It has picked up a range of plaudits, including the 'World Car of the Year' award, and it offers a range of nearly 300 miles.
The battery recharges in 13.5 hours and with rapid charging, the time drops to 44 minutes.
It's an impressive car to drive from a standing start and has a top speed of 124 mph.
This is a premium offering and it's a Jaguar with a lot of technology onboard.
It's also a refined and comfortable car to drive with excellent good looks.
If you want a quality, well-designed SUV that is cheap to run, then the Jaguar I-Pace lease is for you.
While many drivers may not have heard of the Polestar 2 car lease model, this is an offshoot of Volvo.
Currently, it's one of the best electric vehicles available to lease with a futuristic car-like design that outperforms most rivals.
The interior is a luxurious place to spend time, and the standard model offers 273 miles of range, while the long-range alternative delivers 335 miles.
There's a lot to like about the Polestar 2 as a car leasing choice.
While the cars here are among the favourites of the Tilsun Leasing team, it's worth noting that there are other great electric cars to consider leasing, including:
