The electric cars coming to your garage this year

The electric and plug-in electric cars arriving in the UK

Should you be a consumer looking to switch to an electric car because of low running costs and the improved impact on local air quality, or you are a business wanting to benefit from electric cars’ lower whole life costs and reduction in your company’s carbon footprint, it’s a good idea to have in mind what’s in the pipeline over the next few months.

Our comprehensive list of electric (EV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) cars that are due to arrive in the UK for you to lease in 2021 and beyond.

Audi e-Tron GT Lease

Audi

e-tron GT / RS e-tron GT

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 303 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Q4 e-tron / Q4 e-tron Sportback

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 316 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Audi will launch 14 new EVs by 2025, with the first of that batch due being the Q4 e-tron and e-tron GT models. The Q4 e-tron SUV will arrive in summer 2021, and the Sportback coupe-SUV is set to arrive next year, both with a choice of battery capacities and power outputs. The e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT are scheduled to come to the UK in the near future, and the electric performance saloon will provide a rival to the likes of the Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan.

Currently available EV models include the e-tron / e-tron Sportback, and TFSI e PHEV models in the A3, A6, A7, A8, Q5, Q7, and Q7 ranges, with the Q3 and Q3 Sportback set to join those ranks soon.

BMW i4 Lease

BMW

i4

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Autumn 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 360 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

iX

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Winter 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 373 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

BMW is predicting big things for the iX, and the large SUV ticks a number of boxes for leasing customers. It’s electric, will be available with a choice of batteries and motors, and leads a new generation of BMW models. It’s certainly important, but it may well be trumped this year by the arrival of another electric BMW – the i4. BMW’s i4 is effectively an all-electric version of the best-selling 3 Series, offering a long driving range and expected to deliver traditional BMW quality and driving appeal, making it a sure-fire hit with company car drivers.

Currently available EV models include the i3 / i3s and iX3, plus PHEV models in the 2 Series Active Tourer, 3 Series, 5 Series, 7 Series, X1, X2, X3, and X5 ranges.

Citroen C5 Lease

Citroen

Ami

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Under consideration
  • Electric Range: around 30 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

C5 X

  • PHEV
  • Due: Early 2022
  • Electric Range: 31 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 11%

There’s no certainty that the Ami will make it to the UK, but it should. If enough UK customers register interest, Citroen UK will officially offer it in Britain, and that would be a great success for the French firm, since it’s electric quadricycle is ideal for urban trips. It might have a short range and low top speed, but it’s also cheap – extremely cheap. Looking at actual cars rather than quadricycles, Citroen is also due to launch a new flagship in the C5 X, which will be offered as a PHEV for the most powerful model.

Currently available EV models include the e-C4, e-SpaceTourer, and e-Dispatch, with a PHEV version of the C5 Aircross on offer.

Cupra Lease

Cupra

Born

Pure-EV

  • Due: Late 2021
  • Electric Range: 310 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Formentor

  • PHEV
  • Due: Late 2021
  • Electric Range: 34 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 11%

Although not currently well known, Cupra is planning big things, and is hanging its future on electrified models. Seat’s performance arm will bring out the Born, in effect a performance-focused version of the VW ID.3, with a range of more than 300 miles. Before that, the Formentor crossover will get an electric powertrain, with an e-Hybrid PHEV model due later this year. Also performance focused, the Formentor e-Hybrid uses a tuned version of the now wide-spread PHEV set up from the VW Group, offering a blend of power and efficiency.

Currently available models include the Leon Hatch and Estate e-Hybrid PHEVs.

DS Lease

DS

DS9

  • PHEV
  • Due: Late 2021
  • Electric Range: 34 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 11%

Not many manufacturers can boast a range of cars, all of which are available with an electric version, but DS Automobiles can. There are only two models available in the UK however, but that will increase to three towards the end of 2021, with the DS 9 flagship. It will also feature a PHEV option, continuing the electric theme, in this case offering more than 30 miles of electric range and 350 hp combined.

Currently available EV models include the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense, and DS 7 Crossback E-Tense PHEV.

Fiat Lease

Fiat

500

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range - 199 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Fiat has experience of reinventing its legendary 500, but the newest version is perhaps its most radical evolution yet. In the UK, Fiat will only offer its customers electric versions of the 500 hatchback and 500 Cabrio convertible. There should be no cause for concern however, as Fiat has packed in a range of almost 200 miles into the compact EV, though there will be shorter-range models available with a price slipping in under the £20,000 mark.

Ford Mustang Lease

Ford

Mustang Mach-E

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 379 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Ford is determined to make a success of its next-generation EV, so much so that it’s putting the considerable weight of the Mustang name behind it. The Mustang Mach-E is set to become a big-seller, with the family-sized SUV available in a large variety of battery and power options, plus two- or all-wheel drive. It looks well suited to the needs of a wide range of leasing customers, both consumers and businesses.

Currently available models include the Transit Custom PHEV range (van and MPV), Kuga PHEV and Puma PHEV.

Hyundai Ioniq Lease

Hyundai

Ioniq 5

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 342 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Ioniq 6

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Mid-2022
  • Electric Range: around 340 miles
  • BIK 22/23: 2%

Hyundai has quickly become a big player in the electric car market, already offering two established and popular electric cars, plus other PHEVs and even a hydrogen fuel cell model. The Korean firm isn’t resting on its laurels, with the relaunching of the Ioniq badge to be placed on an electric-only line-up. The first model due is the Ioniq 5, with ultra-rapid charging, a lengthy driving range, and a number of different configurations looking set to build on the success of the Kona Electric, though in a larger car. Following on from the 5 will be the Ioniq 6, a dramatically different car in style – sleek coupe-saloon rather than retro-inspired SUV – but it shares the same fundamental platform and powertrains; Hyundai is covering all the bases here.

Currently available EV models include the Kona Electric and Ioniq Electric, and Ioniq PHEV.

Jaguar I-Pace Lease

Jaguar

‘Baby’ I-Pace

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: 2022
  • Electric Range: around 300 miles
  • BIK 23/24: 2%

Beyond the recently refreshed I-Pace, Jaguar has no confirmed news on other new electric cars due. However, we do have a commitment that the British brand will become an electric-only manufacturer from 2025, which isn’t a long time to switch around a reasonably sizeable portfolio. Expect a ‘baby’ I-Pace to arrive in the next 12-24 months, building on the success of the multi-award winning I-Pace, and set to take on the likes of Tesla’s Model Y, the Polestar 2, and Ford’s more expensive Mustang Mach-E models.

Currently available EV models include the I-Pace, and E-Pace and F-Pace PHEVs.

Kia EV6 Lease

Kia

EV6

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: September 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 316 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Like sister-firm Hyundai, Kia is both already an established brand in the electric car market, and one that is pushing forward at pace. Next to come along is the EV6, a stylish crossover with multiple options available, and a range of more than 300 miles on a charge. Add in ultra-rapid charging across the board and shorter-range models at lower price points, and the EV6 is set to win over a number of leasing customers.

Currently available EV models include the Soul EV and e-Niro, as well as the XCeed, Niro, Ceed Sportswagon, and Sorento PHEVs.

Land Rover Lease

Land Rover

Range Rover EV

  • Due: 2024
  • Electric Range: around 300 miles
  • BIK 23/24: 2%

Like Jaguar, we are left guessing as to exactly what EVs will be along in the near future, however Land Rover’s parent company – Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) – has revealed that six pure-EVs will be released over the next five years. These will be spread across Land Rover’s three model groups – Defender, Discovery, and Range Rover – with the flagship Range Rover expected to be the first model to come along from Land Rover powered only by an electric motor.

Currently available electrified models include plug-in hybrid (PHEV) versions of the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evoque, Range Rover Velar, Defender, and Discovery Sport.

Lexus Lease

Lexus

LF-Z

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: By 2025
  • Electric Range: 373 miles
  • BIK 23/24: 2%

Lexus already has an entirely electrified line-up, with every model available as a conventional hybrid. There’s even the pure-electric UX on sale now, though this is just the start. PHEVs and EVs will be added across the range, with 10 new hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or pure-EVs due by 2025, of which we’re hoping and expecting a production version of the LF-Z concept is one.

Currently available EV models include the UX 300e.

Lotus Lease

Lotus

Evija

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Late 2021
  • Electric Range: 215 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Famed for a ‘less is more’, lightweight approach to sportscars, with high-revving engines, Lotus is making less of a step forward and more like a giant leap into the next phase of its existence by skipping any hybrids and the like and shifting to pure-electric. It’s part of the Geely Group so can call on electric expertise from the likes of Volvo and Polestar, which means the Lotus Evija, a 2,000hp, 1.5 tonne super car with a 200+mph top speed and 200 mile range, looks feasible. Nice looking thing too.

Mercedes Benz Lease

Mercedes-Benz

EQA

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 265 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

EQB

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Autumn 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 297 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

EQS

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Autumn 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 475 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

EQE

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Early 2022
  • Electric Range: expected 350 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Mercedes Benz is moving forward quickly with its electric car line-up. The EQ sub-brand is currently available on the EQC, but that will be joined within a year by four new EQ models. These range from the EQA compact SUV at one end of the spectrum, to the EQS at the other. The latter is an electric S-Class and looks set to provide a technological tour de force in the same manner as Mercedes Benz’s current flagship. In between, there will be the EQB, a seven-seat crossover with excellent range and practicality, and the EQE which is due to challenge the likes of Porsche’s Taycan, the Audi e-tron GT, and Tesla’s Model S.

Currently available models include the EQC EV, and A-Class, B-Class, C-Class, E-Class, S-Class, CLA, GLA, GLC, GLE EQ Power PHEVs.

MG Cyberster Lease

MG

Cyberster

Pure-EV

Due: 2022

Electric Range: 500 miles

BIK 22/23: 2%

The Cyberster was launched as a concept at the recent Shanghai Auto; but it’s quite some concept! Reception to the car has been, well, full-on positive and MG has just confirmed that the car will go into production. MG has a heritage in sportscars the envy of just about any manufacturer in the world, and a recent history in electric cars, so the Cyberster seems to marry the two perfectly. It would be a halo model, but one to put MG firmly back in the thoughts of drivers everywhere.

Currently available EV models include the ZS EV and MG5 EV, and the HS Plug-In Hybrid.

Nissan Ariya Lease

Nissan

Ariya

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 310 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Nissan was the world leader in electric cars with the Leaf – the first mass-market EV – more than 10 years ago. It also stole a march on the rest of the competition with the Qashqai, making crossovers popular in the family car market. Combine the two and you are sure to have a success. Here then is the Nissan Ariya, the Japanese firm’s next-generation EV with a range of more than 300 miles, and a competitor for the VW ID.4 and Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Currently available EV models include the Leaf and Leaf e+.

Porsche Taycan Lease

Porsche

Taycan Cross Turismo

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 283 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

With the Taycan proving a popular model for Porsche, the Stuttgart manufacturer is set to expand the line-up with the Taycan Cross Turismo. How do you improve a fine-handling, stylish saloon though? By offering it as an estate. The Taycan Cross Turismo is a slightly more rugged version of the Taycan, with the same long range and choice of models, just with a larger boot and more ground clearance.

Currently available EV models include the Taycan, and Cayenne and Panamera E-Hybrid PHEVs.

Renault 5 Lease

Renault

5

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: 2023
  • Electric Range: Expected 200 miles
  • BIK 22/23: 2%

The famous Renault 5 is set to return, and this time the supermini will be electric-only. The brilliant design has styling cues from the original Renault 5, but it’s far from a retro machine. Pricing will start at around £20,000 and is set to sit between the Clio and Zoe ranges rather than replace either. Considering the Zoe can already cover more than 250 miles on a charge, it’s clear Renault’s expertise in EVs will benefit the 5, which will rival the Fiat 500, MINI Electric, and Honda e.

Currently available EV models include the Zoe, and Capture and Megane E-Tech PHEVs.

Skoda Enyaq Lease

Skoda

Enyaq iV

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 333 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

The Enyaq iV will to add Skoda’s ‘Simply Clever’ philosophy to the EV market, in the shape of a spacious family-sized SUV. Similar to VW’s ID.4, the Enyaq iV has multiple battery and motor options, with a range of more than 300 miles available from the top model. Shorter range models will be available too, but most will still top 250 miles on a charge, though with a lower cost.

Currently available EV models include the Citigo iV, and Octavia and Superb PHEVs.

Tesla Model X Lease

Tesla

Model S Plaid

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Early 2022
  • Electric Range: up to 390 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Model X

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Late 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 314 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Tesla’s approach of continuous improvement has more in common with the technology industry than the automotive one. As such, the Model S might be getting on in car years, but the best version yet is soon to arrive in the shape of the Model S Plaid. A new type of battery will allow for a huge range, plus 1,000+ hp and a 0-62mph time of less than 2.0 seconds. A little more sensible is the Tesla Model Y, which is a crossover version of the hugely-popular Model 3 saloon. Range figures start at 250 miles for the entry-level model, and topping 300 miles for the Long Range & Performance versions.

Currently available models include the Model 3, Model S, and Model Y

Toyota Mirai Lease

Toyota

Mirai - Hydrogen Fuel Cell EV

  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: 403 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

bZ4X

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Mid 2022
  • Electric Range: Expected 300 miles
  • BIK 22/23: 2%

Toyota is pushing ahead in a number of areas for its future vehicles. One of the few manufacturers to offer a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, the Mirai will soon enter its second generation with a long range making it a good fit - should you live close to one of the (currently) few hydrogen refuelling stations in the UK. The Japanese company’s first pure-EV is likely to be a production version of the bX4X concept, a mid-sized SUV that will compete in a burgeoning market.

Currently available models include the Prius Plug-In PHEV and Mirai FCEV.

Volkswagen ID 4 Lease

Volkswagen

ID.4

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 323 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

With the ID.3, Volkswagen launched its third chapter in its history – the first two being the Beetle and the Golf. Progressing from there was always going to be a tough call, but VW has sensibly gone down the crossover route, with the ID.4. Effectively an ID.3 with more space and on stilts, the ID.4 will offer leasing customers the same variety of options, with lower costs getting a shorter-range model, and a little more moving the customer into a longer range or more powerful machine.

Currently available EV models include the ID.3 and e-up!, and Golf, Arteon, Touareg, and Passat PHEVs.

Volvo XC40 Lease

Volvo

XC40 Recharge P8

  • Pure-EV
  • Due: Summer 2021
  • Electric Range: up to 257 miles
  • BIK 21/22: 1%

Volvo has PHEVs available throughout its line-up – sometimes two per model – so after that considerable electrification effort, it’s going the next step with a full-electric model. The Volvo XC40 P8 Recharge is an EV version of its smallest SUV and will cover more than 250 miles on a charge. Add in ultra-rapid charging and a sophisticated Google infotainment system and the popular model looks even better in electric spec than petrol.

Currently available models include the S60, V60, S90, V90, XC40, XC60, and XC90 PHEVs.
