Lease an electric vehicle

Drive into the future with flexible electric vehicle leasing.

Lease a brand-new electric vehicle for up to 48 months

HSBC is working with ZenAuto to offer a range of electric vehicles available to lease online. 

Leasing – also known as Personal Contract Hire (PCH) – is a flexible way to drive the latest electric vehicles. You’ll drive the car for a fixed term and pay for the lease in monthly instalments. As you won’t own the car, you’ll return it once your term ends and then have the freedom to start a new lease.

When leasing a new electric vehicle, you’ll be responsible for insurance and maintenance, as well as making sure you don’t exceed mileage restrictions. 

Maintenance and servicing costs can be included in your monthly repayment or you have the choice to budget and pay these costs yourself.

  • Choose from a range of car manufacturers
  • Order your electric vehicle entirely online
  • Get ZenAuto support whenever you need it

What should I expect from HSBC when leasing an electric vehicle from ZenAuto?

Once your electric vehicle is ordered, all enquires should be made directly with ZenAuto. Any communications you receive about your lease will be from ZenAuto.
