What is Hybrid Van Leasing?

A hybrid van lease is a type of vehicle leasing agreement that allows you to drive a van that has either a petrol or diesel engine and an electric motor. Hybrid vans tend to be more fuel-efficient than a traditional combustion-powered van.

Hybrid van contract hire brings many benefits for UK businesses and drivers. If you're looking for a more fuel-efficient way to transport goods or people, then hybrid vans could be the answer. Not only will you save money on fuel costs, but you'll also reduce your carbon footprint.

There are a few things to consider before you sign a hybrid van lease so make sure you understand how hybrid vans work - and whether they meet your needs.

You'll also need to find a reputable leasing company, such as Mega Lease, that offers great hybrid vans for lease deals at a competitive price.

Which hybrid van to lease?

There are two types of hybrid vans to consider: mild hybrids and full hybrids.

  • Mild hybrids: These vans use the electric motor to assist the engine during acceleration. The electric motor is not powerful enough to drive the van on its own, so the van will still need to be fuelled by petrol or diesel.
  • Full hybrid: These vans can run on electric power alone for short distances. This is thanks to a larger battery that stores more electrical energy. The battery is often recharged by the engine while you're driving or by brake recuperation technology.

What are the benefits of hybrid van leasing?

There are many benefits to hybrid van lease deals, including:

  • Improved fuel economy: Hybrid vans are more fuel-efficient than traditional petrol or diesel vans. This means you'll save money on fuel costs, especially if you cover a lot of miles each year.
  • Reduced emissions: Hybrid vans produce lower emissions than combustion-powered vans, so you can help to reduce your carbon footprint.

What are the disadvantages of hybrid van leasing?

There are a few things to consider before you sign a hybrid van lease, including:

  • Higher initial cost: Hybrid vans typically cost more to buy than traditional petrol or diesel vans. However, you may be able to offset this cost with government incentives.
  • Increased maintenance: Hybrid vans require more maintenance than traditional vans because they have two powertrains. Make sure you factor this into your budget before you sign a lease agreement.
  • Limited range: Hybrid vans can only travel for a certain distance on electric power alone - typically around 30 miles. If you regularly travel long distances, then a hybrid van may not be suitable for you.

How does hybrid van leasing work?

Hybrid van leasing works in the same way as traditional vehicle leasing. You agree to lease the van from a leasing company for a set period, typically between two and four years. During the lease agreement, you'll make monthly payments to the leasing company.

At the end of the lease agreement, you can return the van and choose another popular hybrid van – or walk away.
