Top segment of the VZR Lease Top 10 for half complete

We already knew that electric cars are popular among business drivers. The choice for an electric car is still mainly prompted by the addition benefit. The development of mid and lower segment electric car has been very clear in 2020. Especially in the higher segment from € 40,000, electric cars have been seen for some time.

Half of the most popular lease cars in this segment are now electric, which is quite remarkable. The traditional premium brands are of course still present, but they are facing a backlog in sales numbers of their electric counterparts.

Electric car

With 5,174 registrations, the Tesla Model 3 proudly tops this Lease Top 10 over the past six months. The business driver still appreciates the make and model, it turns out. The Audi e-tron follows in second place with nearly three thousand registrations. The popular Audi electric car is available in various versions, from spacious SUV to sporty Sportback. The long-awaited Polestar 2 takes a nice third position with almost three thousand cars sold. Finally, the electric top 4 is completed by the Volkswagen ID4. The car has only been on the road since December 2020 and, thanks to many pre-registrations, has sold as many as 1,510 copies. The electric SUV from Mercedes, the EQC, closes the row this time in position 10. The EQC stands out because of its widescreen cockpit and has the highest starting price of these Lease Top 10 cars.

Hybrid and fuel

In the other half of the Lease Top 10 of more than € 40,000, we see well-known brands claiming their position. The BMW 3-series, fifth place, and the BMW 5-series are also indispensable in this category. The latter takes sixth position with 556 registrations in the last half of 2020. Both models are of course also available as a plug-in hybrid. The Mercedes C-class (7th place), Audi A4 (8) and the Volvo XC 60 (9th position) complete the lease top 10. It is striking that the fixed brands and models in the higher segment score best with the sedan and station wagon versions. Only Volvo’s XC60 is an SUV.
