One of the world’s biggest car manufacturers, BMW is at the cutting edge of electric vehicles, too. If you’re looking to lease an electric car, you’ll find BMWs to suit a range of budgets, sizes and needs.
Key highlights of BMW
BMW was founded in Bavaria in 1916. Originally an aircraft engine manufacturer, it started making cars in 1928. Today, the famous blue-and-white badge is a marker of elegance and quality worldwide.
From sleek convertibles to luxury SUVs, BMW’s range combines comfort, power and efficiency.
Its most famous models include the stunning hybrid i8, the compact Isetta minicar and the iconic Z8 sports car driven by James Bond.
BMW & EVs
BMW took a leap to electric vehicles before some rivals with the compact i3 that featured a radical lounge-like interior and the stunning hybrid i8 sports car. Since then it’s gone about electrifying the rest of its popular lineup from executive saloons to its family SUVs, with the i and iX badging all that’s really different from the petrol and diesel variants.
Top BMW models
At GRIDSERVE, you’ll find the entire range of BMW EVs. The i4 Gran Coupe is a sophisticated and stylish choice, comparable to the Kia EV6 or the Tesla Model 3, while its big brother, the i7, is an exec limo packed with technology.
And if you want something bigger, there’s a range of SUVs, from the small iX3 to family-sized iX3, all the way up to the biggest iX - similar to the X5 built as an electric car from the start. All combine impressive driving range with super-fast charging times, making them ideal for long-distance travel.
Similar brands to BMW
BMW is one of the market-leading EV manufacturers and part of the German ‘big three’ along with Mercedes-Benz and Audi. Genesis is a newcomer to the premium sector and we’d also reckon looking at Tesla and Volvo. Don’t forget Kia and Hyundai too for a slightly more affordable, but no less impressive, selection.

The BMW iX1 is the smallest fully-electric SUV that the German brand makes and is based on a petrol-powered variant known as the X1. From the outside, you’d struggle to tell the difference between the two, which is great for drivers who perhaps don’t want to wear their eco credentials so boldly. Just like the X1, the BMW iX1 is a practical yet compact SUV with a spacious boot, high quality cabin and trademark BMW driving experience.
From £687.31 Per Month (inc. VAT)
From £423.60 Per Month (exc. VAT)
The BMW iX3 is a fully-electric version of the hugely popular X3 family SUV. On the outside, only a few blue accents and slightly more streamlined alloys help distinguish the iX3 from its internal combustion engine siblings, but the driving experience is in a league of its own. This is a comfortable, practical family SUV that is well worth putting on your shopping list.

Popularity in the electric car industry tends to fluctuate depending on the time and other factors, but the i4 has remained as one of the brand’s best-selling models ever since its release in 2021. It has made an enormous splash as a true competitor and alternative to the Tesla Model 3.
BMW is a manufacturer that really excels in offering electric cars with fantastic range figures. The greatest in terms of range comes from the i4, which offers 365 miles depending on the specification you choose. This makes the i4 model one of the best electric cars around for range, so if you take long trips on a regular basis then it may be the perfect EV for you.
The prices of these BMW EV lease deals vary over time depending on a range of factors, so it’s impossible to say that one particular model will remain the cheapest forever. However, of the available options, it’s likely that the smallest of the bunch - the iX1 - will be the most budget-friendly.
Due to its reputation as a luxury car manufacturer, all BMW electric car models are great options when you’re looking for a car to lease for business use. Whether you’re a business owner that is leasing for your employees or a professional in need of a smart and suave car, BMW’s range of EVs could be ideal.
BMW EV leasing offers a wide range of advantages vs buying the car outright, which include much lower upfront costs, the opportunity to switch or upgrade your vehicle every couple of years, the monthly payments being fixed for the duration of the agreement, and no depreciation concerns as you’ll not be the owner of the vehicle.
There are some scenarios when buying may suit your needs more, but leasing is a phenomenal option.
