If you are not one of the 2million+ drivers who have already chosen to lease a brand-new car, then you may have a few questions about how leasing works, what's included and if it’s right for you. So, let’s start with the basics.

How leasing works

Leasing a car from Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is choose the car you really want to drive, think about a realistic estimate for your annual mileage, and decide how long you would like to keep the vehicle for. 

Based on what you tell us, we’ll calculate your monthly payments and fix them for the entire duration of the contract. It really is that simple.

You can even include a maintenance package which protects you from inflation and means you don’t have to worry about any servicing, repairs, or breakdown costs. And once you get to the end of the contract, you can hand the vehicle back and (if you want to) choose a new one.

Lease with us in 4 easy steps


Why lease? 

What's included with your lease

One of the great things about leasing is that you can wrap up a whole range of motoring expenses into one fixed monthly payment that’s guaranteed not to increase for up to four years. It covers:

A brand-new electric car 

RAC Electric Car Breakdown Cover

Home Charge Point (Optional)

Extra Charging cables (Optional)

All servicing and repairs (Optional)

Road Tax

 

Add on a Home Charge Point

We'll get you and your new electric car road ready with a 7kW home charge point that is fully optimised for smart charging with the Hive app.

Together with British Gas & Hive Smart Charging, we can offer you a home charge point alongside your lease agreement so you can plug in, charge and get on the road.


Electric Car Breakdown

Getting you back on the road 

When leasing with us, there’s no need to pay extra – RAC Electric Car Breakdown Cover is included with every lease. You can relax knowing we’re number one for electric car breakdown cover**, as we do more than anyone else to keep you on the road. 

Expert Mechanics

RAC patrols are fully trained to know your electric car inside out. So you’ll be in safe hands with our experts.

EV boost

Battery run out? Only RAC EV Boost vans can give you a 10-mile boost to get you to the nearest charge point. 

Rapid Recovery

Need a tow? Electric vehicles usually have to wait for a recovery truck. But our high-tech vans can lift all four wheels off the ground, saving you time and protecting your vehicle.


At the end of your contract

Once you reach the end of the contract, all you need to do is hand the car back and decide what you would like to drive next. And don’t worry, whether you choose a new car or not, as long as you have kept to the mileage allowance and returned the car with no more than fair wear and tear, there will be nothing more to pay.
