With technology being updated all of the time with Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV), going towards full-time electric vehicles may not be a feasible option for many people. The higher upfront costs, range anxiety and public charging may make many people feel that EV’s are inaccessible.

Electric Vehicles (and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV)) are only cost-effective and cheaper to run when the user has access to easy electricity. This could be a home charging point or access to a charging point in the workplace.

Subscription without the Commitment

If you’re not sure whether or not an electric or hybrid vehicle will work for you, then a subscription is an ideal way of running a flexible contract without the long-term commitments of a 2 or 3 year car lease.

With many providers offering 30 or 90 days swaps, you can try out some of the latest models to see what works best for you. Companies like Elmo and ONTO allow you to swap every month if you so wish and with vehicles from the Fiat 500e to the Tesla Model 3, there should be a car that suits everyone’s needs.

We’ve already written an article on Electric Car Subscription, this can be found on the highlighted link but the basics of all vehicle subscriptions are based on flexibility and one payment that covers all of the essentials such as rental, maintenance, servicing, warranty, breakdown assistance and road tax.

Plug-in Hybrid Car Subscriptions

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) are a great tool to use to transition from an ICE car to a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). Most cars have an electric-only range of between 25 to 50 miles, which in most commutes or school runs should be ample.

If you go on a long run, you’ve got a fuel tank and a traditional engine to get you to your destination without the worry of trying to track down a charger, although the ZAP-Map app is a huge benefit to both PHEV and BEV drivers.

Companies who offer PHEV’s
