Volkswagen e-Golf 5 Door Hatchback - Fully Electric Vehicle 9+23 Personal Lease - 10,000 miles per annum £6912 total @ WhatCar Leasing

Posted 31st Aug
£1,944 upfront and then 23 payments of £216 per month, total £6,912 for two years at 10,000 miles per annum.

Here is the cheapest two year personal lease deal I can currently find for 10k miles p.a. on the fully electric VW e-Golf 5 door hatchback.

Specification includes amongst other things;-
  • 8 inch touchscreen entertainment system with DAB, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • 16 inch alloy wheels with low rolling resistance tyres
  • Full LED headlights
  • Rear LED lights with sweeping indicator function
  • Dual zone climate control
  • Leather wrapped height and reach adjustable multi-function steering wheel
  • Remote electrically folding door mirrors
  • Adaptive cruise control with front assist and city braking
  • Heated windscreen
  • Automatic lights and windscreen wipers
  • Two charging cables (mode 2 mains cable and mode 3 chargepoint cable)

It's a lease, so straight away it won't appeal to everyone. But it is a relatively low cost introduction to running a brand new fully electric vehicle. Other benefits include;-
  • No vehicle tax to pay
  • Manufacturers warranty included for the full term of the lease
  • Breakdown cover included for the full term of the lease
  • No congestion charge to pay
  • No ULEZ charge to pay
  • Official range of 144 miles per charge (120 miles real world range), so savings of at least £500 per year in fuel costs vs an equivalent diesel engine Golf, or even more savings if you are able to charge at a lower off peak rate, or 'free' electric at a chargepoint e.g. while at work.
  • No worries about unexpected depreciation caused by advances in technology of electric vehicles or falling popularity of combustion engine vehicles.

Manufacturers on the road price is £31,075 (or £27,575 after the government grant). The 'free' colour is Urano Grey, metallic paint is available at an extra £21 per month approx., up to you to decide whether that's worth it. Other profiles are available with lower upfront costs, different terms and mileage allowances, so you can save a bit more if you don't need 10k p.a.

Hopefully this deal will be of some benefit to someone. Before anyone asks, insurance is not included!

Plus with these things, they really get you from any scratches or anything like that.... they say they don't, but from my Mum's experience, they do. So now every time I go over, she's always arguing about using which vehicle when they go out lol. It just seems like a lot of Babying and stress for something that you shouldn't need to think about. What I don't understand is you pay £7000 and what do you have to show for it? You could get a cheap Car or a Used one with a 0 percent APR Loan, and then sell it and get almost all your money back. As for electric, CO2 is less than 1 percent, it is not driving Global Warming, though have you noticed it has now changed to Climate Change? Covers their back when it gets Colder.And don't you think the making of your new car creates more CO2 and uses more energy than sticking with your older one, or buying a used one? Like the Amazon Rain Forest, it doesn't produce 1/5 of the worlds Oxygen, it's impossible, but the News is telling you that... As for Diesel, the whole thing was a Sham... Diesel produces less emissions than Petrol. The only thing they got it on was NOX, which they measured by stop lights and other stop places directly on the road. In reality Diesel produces only slightly more than Petrol, and like 70+ percent of NOX comes from Tyres and Brakes... where they produce most of it stopping and pulling off lol.

how do they expect us to take up electric vehicles @ these on road prices?



It’s a brand new golf for £216 pm that is amazing. That’s way better than HP offers on most combustion cars.

On top of that it’s dirt cheap to refuel - around £2.50

Range on this is only around 130miles of real world driving tho but it is ideal for cities and 75% of the country’s needs.

Really really really fun to drive too. So much pace.

If you are only into second hand cars then look at the Zoe’s and Leafs they are now pushing sub £5k and are really reliable and cheap to maintain.
120 mile range is really not good enough, makes it impractical.

Great spot for people who want to go green in style! Heat added. Great price.
God that car is so much fun to drive! Try it if you haven’t. Lacked range for me but I do big trips.

That’s a great price too btw HEAT

Really surprised leather seats is such an expensive add on. Really ruins the deal for me personally. Voted hot as this is a fab deal otherwise.
This due to the very recent price reduction? VW pinning its electric hopes on the ID instead of the Golf.

i think this is a great deal and voted hot, it's much better than the £222 focus i recently leased, my reply was aimed at such a high on road price which will do nothing to encourage the take up of electric vehicles.
Great Deal!!
I hope theres more like this in May when my current lease runs out

I’m in the same position.
Very decent, I pay £1k / year on fuel and 300 on road tax for my 3.2 Alfa GT, that's before maintenance so once that's included this is on parity. Would seriously consider this, great spot.

It’s £288 a month over the term, still a great deal though
If the range was better I'd be interested and not sure how easy it is to charge from home!
If I park in the drive and charge it from a regular power point in the garage would it charge overnight?
Would a 2 year or 3 year term be better in the golf? Been looking for an electric or plug in hybrid for a while now.

For you. Not for many other people!
Manufacturers are going to have to make these cheaper and longer range to be viable. Most electric cars are £35k+ which is ridiculous. I'm going to wait until fossil fuel no longer has its stranglehold on the motor trade and they will suddenly drop these to half the price or less. I wish the oil reservoirs will empty already... the quicker the better for the environment!

How do you expect them to spend in R&D if they can’t make it back? To then refine the process and make them cheaper.
10K a year based on 45mpg and £1.25 a litre is £1,200 a year in fuel. Electric would be about 1/4 that. That makes it £5,100 over 2 years. Not amazing but more palatable.

Without oil the world is over as we know it.
Not only cars use it, it’s in every facet of our lives.
9 second 0-60. Bit slow for an electric car. Tesla model 3 does it between 3 and 5 depending on the model. 3 times the acceleration.

I would say just about. We rely on overnight 3 pin charging on our Leaf when we visit my folks. Usually we have about 20 miles range left when we arrive and it is pretty much done in the morning. Our Leaf has a similar range to this Golf. You shouldn't always fully charge batteries everytime anyway so I have read to increase their lifespan.
Does this have a range extender??

Kindest regards

Where there is a will, theres a way my friend. Open your eyes... energy is in abundance all around us - solar, wind, wave, etc. Its just lacking major research and investment because of our love affair with oil right now. But when that runs out, trust me you'll suddenly see all new ideas of generating power come through to the forefront.
Amazing find OP!

There's always a premium for new technology. But note the low lease cost points to the almost complete lack of depreciation on that premium tech. Good investment whether you lease or buy compared to combustion engines cars.

It all needs lubrication though...

Seriously, we should save the oil for making the plastics we use, it's far more important for making heart valves and medical equipment than for burning to get to ibiza for a week.

Zoe’s are no where near pushing £5k, older models are now appreciating in Value. Looking at £7-9k for a low mileage Zoe in good condition
Not a bad price, but it’s not very quick by Golf or electric standards.

If your only doing 10000 miles pa it's more than enough
I own one of these, brilliant car.

Yes it only does 130 miles, but how many times in a year do most people do that in one journey? Besides, even if you need to do a 200 mile journey for example, you will need to stop half way for a break. All motorway stations are now equipped with 50kwh DC chargers which fully charges this car in under 45 minutes. You can check on the electric highways app which chargers are working and available.

VW have also crammed this full of tech as standard, the interface is great, apple carplay and the android equivalent, sat nav, the ability to switch everything on or off by the app.

What people aren't considering as well is the perks - free charging in public car parks (generally at the front of the car park too), the ability to use bus lanes in many councils, congestion charge free, no road tax, cheaper fuel.

People can p*ss and moan all they want about how they aren't as environmentally friendly as advertised all they like, but the prices on these are now reaching the point where they match the ICE equivalent, with a massive reduction in fuel cost (mine went from £200pm in Deisel to £40pm in electric).

Side Note for anyone actually on about getting one of these - I would recommend investing in the Winter Pack as you get a lot in it for the extra £400.
At these prices I think my next car will definitely be electric, I would have gone for this if I’d seen it a few months ago!

Bought a new Leon at a good price of around 13k but this Golf wouldn’t be far off paying for itself in comparison by time I think what i put in fuel a month!

Distance is a bit short but would be good enough for my normal daily commute and most drives I do!

This sounds like your Mum’s issue. I leased twice previously and they weren’t fussy at all with scratches and knocks. I had very scuffed alloys both times and only got charged about £50 a wheel, much less than it would have cost me to repair. Returned the last 1 after someone had crashed into back of me breaking reflector and cracking the paint and just replaced the reflector myself and left it to chance and didn’t get charged a penny even though paint was cracked and there were scratches over 5cm.

Lithium ion is just a raw material that is used right now but with more time research and funding they'll find better hybrid/artificial materials that can hold an electric charge more efficiently and give us far better range. As I said, once the oil reserves have gone, the powers that be will suddenly have to find new, more sustainable ways of powering cars and industries.

So right now we are in a limbo, theres still enough oil to power industries so why bother investing heavily on expensive new technologies? But at the same time the manufacturers wants to be seen as doing their (minimum) best for the environment hence why we are getting these expensive, half-ass attempt at alternative energy vehicles.

What are the savings on fuel charging at home overnight compared to a diesel Golf doing 10k PA?
I’d consider getting an electric car but I do have a few questions....

1. Do you just charge off the mains at home? I live in a second floor flat so it’s necessarily practical for me to run an extension lead out of the window every day.

2. How long does the battery take to charge? What happens if I want to travel more than 130 miles? Do I need to stop somewhere for a bit
