Diesel cars made up three quarters (76%) of leased vehicles from Vantage Leasing in 2018, with hybrid and electric cars accounting for almost 7% of orders.
Electric vehicles are expected to become much cheaper over the next two years as stronger residuals make them more attractive to the leasing sector.
Despite sales of new diesel cars tumbling by more than 300,000 vehicles in 2018, demand for the fuel is still high in the leasing market, says Vantage Leasing.
