Electric car leasing from Octopus EV

The whole EV package. Car, charger, energy.

What is an electric car lease?

Electric car leasing gives you access to a brand-new, top spec EV. It works like a long-term car rental. Drive the car for two to four years and return it at the end of your contract.

With electric car leasing, you’ll pay an initial upfront payment and then fixed monthly payments. Our ultimate EV package makes it easy to switch to electric driving. Car, charger, energy. All from Octopus.

5 star Trustpilot rating

Our customers rate us 5 stars on Trustpilot, because we're obsessed with giving you the best experience possible. It's the Octopus way.

Intelligent Octopus EV tariff

Intelligent Octopus synced with Ohme Home Charger is the smartest EV energy tariff giving you six hours of smart charging every night at a super low rate. Saving you up to 85% on fuel costs compared with petrol and charging when it's cheapest and greenest.

Can I buy the car at the end of personal contract hire?

No, you’ll give the car back at the end of the lease as the agreement is for Personal Contract Hire, which is a hire plan and you therefore don’t own the car at the end. Remember though, cars are assets that lose value quickly, so this way you get to return the car, hassle free, at the end of your term, and can then get a brand new car of your choice ensuring you have the latest tech.

What isn't included in the ultimate EV package?

The main thing that you’ll need to do is source yourself comprehensive motor insurance and keep that in place for the length of your contract. Plus, you’ll also be liable for any fines that you may receive once you have the car, plus any excess mileage and damage above wear and tear when you return the car at the end. The lease agreement that you sign will detail all of this for you.

I’ve heard there are long wait times. How soon can I get an EV?

It's no secret that there are supply chain challenges across the world at the moment for new cars, including EVs. But we’ve pre-ordered the most popular cars, either by reserving factory build slots with manufacturers, or buying cars that have already been made, so we can get you in one sooner. Your delivery timescale will differ depending on which make and model you go for, and how customised you want the car to be.

What does standard installation include for home chargers?

A standard installation with expert Octopus installers includes the following. If installing your electric vehicle charger is more complicated than our standard installation, it may cost extra to get you set up. Of course we'll give you a quote for any extra work before we go ahead.

  • Remote survey
    • We'll use all the information and photos you’ve given to us to make sure we're able to do a standard install and decide the best logistics for the job.
  • Fitting the charger
    • We'll fit the charger on a brick or plaster wall, or other suitable place. We'll also fit an earthing unit (e.g. Garo or Matt:e brand) where needed.
  • Routing the cable
    • We'll route the cable through one drilled hole in a wall up to 20 inches thick, if needed. Up to 15 metres of High Tuff cable, run and clipped to the wall between your consumer unit and charger, up to 1.8m high.
  • Electrical connections
    • We'll connect the charger to the origin of the supply and install a Type A RCD in the consumer unit. We'll supply up to 3m of plastic conduit or trunking to conceal interior wiring.
  • Testing & demonstration
    • We'll do all necessary electrical testing and give you NICEIC certification, as well as showing you how the charger and app works.
