Why do electric cars have such long waiting lists?

by | Jun 30, 2022 | News

Electric car buyers are currently faced with unprecedented wait times for delivery of their cars. This is due to a global shortage of parts exacerbated by pandemic fallout and the Ukrainian conflict, with delays of up to 18 months reported on popular models such as the VW ID.3.

If you find yourself in this predicament and are patiently (or not) waiting for your electric car, then we can help. We have several ID.3s waiting to be deployed at new locations which means they are now available for longer hires over the summer.

Cars can be booked in 4-week blocks at a cost of £650 (plus 2p a mile up to 1000 miles) – that equates to just over £23 a day for a top of the range, brand new EV. Payment is 50% up front and 50% at the end of the 4-week hire period with VAT applying for any business bookings. Once the 4 weeks is up, you have the option to renew (unless the car is required elsewhere.)
