E-car and services in one package

While electric cars are known for their high price but low operating costs, operating leasing may be a way to their wider usage.

“The most frequent argument preventing the wider development and spread of electro-mobility was initially the high investment of procuring an e-car, unclear end-value or the endurance of their accumulators, as well as insufficient infrastructure,” CEO of Business Lease Slovakia Björn van den Berg said in mid-April at the launch of the meeting New Trend in Electro-mobility that took place in Bratislava, as quoted by the organisers. “These obstacles have been removed and we are progressing hugely in electro-mobility this year.” 

Business Lease Slovakia leasing company joined a partner, the VSE Holding group, and presented a new eMobility package which brings to companies, and soon also to individuals, a complex solution of electro-mobility – an e-car, charging set and services, all in a single package. 

In Slovakia, the CEVA Logistics Slovakia company will be the first to test the eMobility. It has already procured also operating leasing for the VW e-Golf in its car fleet. 

Today, the higher acquisition price of an e-car compared to a conventional engine is no longer a problem: prices drop each year, and the operating costs for e-cars are lower than for combustion engines. 

Operating leasing is a way to avoid high initial investment: the company pays only the difference between the acquisition and the vehicle end-value, according to Björn van den Berg. Thus, monthly instalments can be set as advantageously as with common vehicles.

Drivers of e-cars can currently use more than 50 free public charging points in Slovakia, while this network expands every year.
