Why should I get an electric car on finance?

Planning for your future
1. Planning for your future
We will all have to drive electric cars one day, and getting started now is making a real investment in your future and the future of the planet. Be a green trendsetter and start the movement now.
Simple monthly payments
2. Simple monthly payments
When you go electric, you’re going to have lots of questions about the car, so the last thing you need is a complex finance arrangement. We keep it simple, giving you a car and finance arrangement in one easy payment.
Reduce running costs
3. Reduce running costs
Tax, insurance, servicing and fuel; running a diesel or petrol car can be costly. While you’ll still pay for these with an EV, the overall running and maintenance costs are generally cheaper, so you’ll have fewer money worries.
How can Hippo help me get an electric car and finance deal?

How can Hippo help me get an electric car and finance deal?

We know that the process could be new to you, so we ensure we go through all the details and answer any questions you may have before we put any agreement in place. Our philosophy is to get you the car and deal that you want.

Once you’re happy with the process, we can help you choose a car. EV specifications are different from standard petrol or diesel cars, but we can run through them with you. Plus, as popularity is soaring, there are more options on the market, such as more model choices and more used EVs.

We understand that everyone’s circumstances are different, so we offer tailored finance packages to customers from different backgrounds. Plus, we offer cars and finance agreements to people with no deposit, bad credit and even CCjs and IVAs.

Check Your Credit Score

Your finance options

As a responsible broker, we always recommend picking the finance package that’s right for you. You can do a FREE soft credit check with us that won’t affect your credit score, but you can get an idea of which finance package you’d prefer beforehand:

Hire purchase (HP) Arrange your contract period and monthly payments with us, stick to your payment plan and own the car at the end of the agreement.
Personal contract purchase (PCP) Pay smaller monthly payments during your contract, and pay a balloon payment at the end of the agreement to own the car or hand it back.
