Go green for Black Friday with Auto Trader's electric car deals

Auto Trader reveals this year’s must-have electric car leasing deals available in the lead up to Black Friday

Auto Trader, the UK’s largest digital marketplace for new and used cars, has revealed its top leasing deals on electric cars ahead of this year’s Black Friday event.

A growing number of motorists are considering going electric following last month’s petrol crisis and the rising cost of fuel, with electric car searches up 25% across the site.

For those considering making the switch to electric, some of the most popular EVs are already being discounted, with monthly prices as low as £259 per month! Round ups of Auto Trader’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday leasing deals can be found here, but be quick as once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Leasing is a popular option for those who like to drive brand new cars and change them regularly. Our leases are for a period of 2-4 years. At the end of the agreed term, you simply hand the car back and start a new lease on another new car. These leases also allow drivers to reduce their initial upfront costs, with fixed low monthly payments and no requirement for a large deposit.
