Tesla for hire

An Altrincham-based car leasing and contract hire specialist is saving customers money by offering the Tesla Model S for hire and lease.

The Model S is exempt from both road tax and the London congestion charge and has very low fuel costs and emissions, meaning customers can reduce fuel costs to virtually zero.

The Tesla, last year’s best-selling electric car, is being offered by CVSL. Sales director Stuart Sinclair said, ‘We’re always looking to offer our customers leading-edge models in-line with customer demands and what makes the Tesla so appealing is its high performance balanced with cost effectiveness, for both organisations and individuals.

‘Although we have been supplying this make of vehicle for some time, we have found that during the last few months we have seen a significant increase in enquiries because more people are recognising the huge advantages that electric vehicles offer when compared to petrol or diesel options.’

More than 3,000 electric vehicles were registered in the UK during the first quarter of 2016, with sales up nine per cent compared to the same period in 2015.
