Green cars are a great lease option because not only are they better for the environment with lower emissions, but they can also save you money. A few years back, choice in the green car market was sparse and styles were not so great but today, UK drivers have a great range of green cars to choose from, to satisfy even the most demanding drivers.

Realistically, green cars aren't for everyone. For those that drive long distances and take regular road trips, a green car may not be appropriate because electric cars need charging on a regular basis. For low mileage drivers looking for a practical city car to combine family and work life however, a green car may be a viable lease choice.

In this post, we list our favourite green cars of 2016, all of which are available to lease with Nationwide Vehicle Contracts. Let’s take a look...

BMW i3

The zero-emission, 3-door BMW i3 will change the way you think about electric cars. The groundbreaking eDrive drivetrain makes for a driving experience that is so smooth and silent, whilst the high-voltage lithium-ion battery works with a dynamic electric motor and an intelligent energy management system to achieve truly impressive range and agility. The spacious and comfortable interior of the i3 also singularly disproves the notion that green motoring must come at the expense of luxury.

The BMW i3 is available to lease with some great leasing deals with Nationwide Vehicle Contracts.

Volkswagen Golf Bluemotion

Imagine all the reasons why you love so much a Volkswagen Golf, now imagine your Golf with super fuel economy. What do you think?

The Volkswagen Golf Bluemotion is VW's most economical family hatch yet, thanks to its low emissions and impressive MPG. Available in 3 or 5 door form, the Volkswagen Golf Bluemotion 1.6 TDI is worth a look, with the 109bhp diesel engine delivering CO2 emissions of just 85g/km (among the best of any hatchback) and a host of other benefits such as lower road tax and company car tax rates.
