With an ever-growing network of electric charge points and affordable EV leasing deals, we’re doing our best to help UK drivers cut carbon emissions by making the change to an electric vehicle. 

The Electric Vehicle (EV) Revolution has begun, and there’s no looking back. To reach the UK’s net zero carbon transport goals and do something about the climate crisis, it’s vital that drivers old and new start thinking about making the transition to electric cars. GRIDSERVE is here to help in any way we can with affordable EV leasing and an ever-growing network of EV charge points.

GRIDSERVE welcomes any effort to tackle emissions, fight global warming, and get people driving Electric Vehicles (EVs). Right now, we’re living in the midst of a “Green Industrial Revolution”, so GRIDSERVE is pleased to support drivers in taking the critical first step before the ban on new petrol and diesel-fuelled vehicles comes into law in 2030.

We’ve been given a jump start

Clean, green transport will soon be in the lead!

However, the Government’s 2030 policy did not come without support. It includes a £1.3bn allocation to fast-track the rollout of charge points for EVs across the UK, £582m in incentives for EV adopters, and around £500m toward the development and production of EV batteries! These are big numbers that will help everyone to participate in this vital transition.  

According to Heston Harper, CEO-APAC at GRIDSERVE:  

“The government’s plan to promote EVs is good for our environment, our public health and will help drive the economy forward,” says Harper. “But right now, there is a pressing need to move the needle on climate change, and we’re eager to see more environmentally-friendly initiatives, broad tax incentives and continued investment in a sustainable future.  

In other words, the road to net zero transport has come a long way, but we all need to be proactive in helping the environment. Leasing an electric car is one way you can do something to help! 

Choose from a wide range of Electric Vehicles

The Audi e-tron is just one of the many EVs we lease.

In our ongoing quest to cut carbon emissions, we needed to find a way to make electric vehicles more affordable and accessible to the UK public. This is why we work with Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions (HCVS) to provide a flexible and affordable EV leasing program. It can be tailored to suit individual motorists, businesses, and fleets alike and includes electric vehicles from some of the world’s best car companies. 

…and more!

Countrywide leasing opportunities

GRIDSERVE is putting you in the driving seat.

We want to make leasing an EV with GRIDSERVE cheaper and greener than ever before, so we have two leasing plans that help the planet  and cut your transport costs. Regardless of which GRIDSERVE leasing plan you choose or where you charge your vehicle, we will plant 100 trees to further reduce carbon emissions. 

1.Net Zero Leasing with Renewable Energy Charging Included!

If you lease an electric car through our website and wish to charge it onsite at the new GRIDSERVE Electric Forecourt® in Braintree, or at one of our soon-to-be-launched compact GRIDSERVE Hubs, we can include the charging costs as part of your leasing deal. This leasing option is ideal for drivers who want to become ‘net zero’ carbon energy drivers by using our quickly growing network of renewable charging infrastructure.

*Those who lease a Tesla through GRIDSERVE will not be eligible to receive charging included in their contract. 

2.Low Carbon Leasing – Charge Your EV Anywhere!

If a trip to one of our charge points is too far out of your way, we’ve still got awesome leasing deals on all types of electric vehicles. When you take advantage of our Low Carbon leasing offer, you’ll enjoy a reduced lease price on your EV and have the freedom to charge anywhere, anytime.
