When choosing a fuel type for a leased car, there are several key considerations to keep in mind. These include:
Driving habits: Consider your driving habits and the typical distances you travel. If you mostly drive short distances around town, an electric or plug-in hybrid car may be a good choice. If you frequently drive long distances, a petrol or diesel car may be more suitable.
Mileage: Consider how much mileage you expect to do each year. If you have a high annual mileage, a petrol or diesel car may be more cost-effective in the long run. However, if you have a low annual mileage, an electric or plug-in hybrid car may be more cost-effective due to lower fuel costs and reduced maintenance.
Budget: Consider your budget for the car lease and running costs. Electric and plug-in hybrid cars may have higher upfront costs but lower running costs over time. Petrol and diesel cars may have lower upfront costs but higher running costs due to fuel costs and maintenance.
Access to charging points: Consider the availability of charging points in your area if you are considering an electric or plug-in hybrid car. Make sure you have access to charging points at home or work, or consider the availability of public charging points in your area.
By considering these factors and weighing up the pros and cons of each fuel type, you can make an informed decision about which fuel type is best suited to your lifestyle and budget.
