Firstly, a big thank you to one of our used-car partners, Vanrooyen-eps for allowing us to photograph one of their latest stock additions – the Tesla MODEL X HATCHBACK 100kWh Dual Motor Performance 5d!
At CarLease UK we can only offer vehicle procurement solutions (contract hire and purchase) on new vehicles. Due budgetary and regulatory constraints we also cannot deal with all types of vehicles such as the Ferrari and Lamborghini type product however we do offer Bentley, Porsche, Range Rover and naturally, Tesla. If you are looking for a luxury vehicle to purchase, new or used, do speak to the team at Vanrooyen who are based over in Warrington near the Gemini retail park.
Additionally, the group have now expanded to include a multi-purpose site in Chester which has nearly 150 vehicles on site for display and sale plus a small niche site next to CarLease UK in Leigh (near Manchester) offering value used-cars under £15,000. We appreciate that not every customer does want to pursue the leasing route, so do speak to the various teams there!
So what do you think to the Tesla – would you really look for this on your next leasing deal? In light of the growing levels of company car tax, anti-diesel policies and growth in charging points, running an electric vehicle is becoming easier. You may have noticed adverts on the television, online and even the radio which are pushing great knowledge on the “greener” cars and vans which are available to purchase or lease – Read More Here and More Here…
For certain drivers in city-areas, like London, Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester, there are either plans to create congestion areas or there are already charging systems in place. Commuting, or logistic exercises, in highly-populated areas is fast becoming an expensive endeavour for individuals and businesses. Manufacturers are now reacting to the political and economic challenges with petrol-hybrid options, which offer a half-way house solution on the green vehicles.
This enables the driver to use a petrol engine on its own, mix the engine/electric elements or run the vehicle solely on the electric contingent.
While more expensive that their petrol and diesel counterparts, they will either save you money on congestion charges or will offer considerable company-car tax savings. Pushing further, completely electric vehicles offer a complete solution but, unless you pay for the more expensive options like the Tesla, are you actually going to get a positive driving experience? Additionally, you also need to consider the range on most electric vehicles, as a 250-300 mile range is not going to be ideal for long-distance travellers. As time moves forward, more and more options will be offered to the public, and company car market, which are both practical and affordable.
Or so we hope.
