In the event of an incident resulting in damage, loss or theft to the vehicle, the customer will be required to pay an excess known as a Customer Incident Charge (CIC) if they are found to be “at fault”. The CIC varies depending on the number of “at fault” incidents for the vehicle and is an escalating charge as follows:
For high value electric vehicles, the CIC is £1000 for the Tesla Model 3 & Y, Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT and £2000 for the Tesla Model S & X and Mercedes-Benz EQS.
If a repair is lower than the CIC, then the customer will only be charged for the loss, also known as a Customer Elected Payment (CEP).

The difference between an electric van and a hybrid van is the way in which it is powered.
An electric van is powered solely by an electric motor. It will need to be plugged into a charge point to take electricity from the grid.
A hybrid van is powered by an internal combustion engine (petrol or diesel) and an electric motor. Some hybrids, such as a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) need to be plugged into a charge point, while others such as mild hybrids (MHEV) and full hybrids, do not.
If you’re not ready to make the transition to a fully electric van, a hybrid van may be for you. Popular hybrid vans currently available to lease include the Ford Transit Custom Plug-in Hybrid and Mitsubishi Outlander Commercial PHEV.
Businesses will need consider how to charge their electric and plug-in hybrid vans. This may include installing an overnight or off duty charging facility at their depot or site.
If you plan to take your lease van home at night, then a domestic home charging solution may be beneficial. Nationwide Vehicle Contracts has partnered with Pod Point to deliver fast home charging for your EV or PHEV.
