The iconic German company Mercedes-Benz produced its first cars in 1926 and has been going strong ever since, with the ‘three-pointed star’ badge a sign of quality and luxury the world over. It’s no newcomer to the EV world, either, with the first electric models launched back in 2018.
Key highlights of Mercedes-Benz
The highlight of the Mercedes-Benz brand is, of course, luxury. The company has become synonymous with style, and comfort, and is today one of the biggest premium car manufacturers in the world.
In more recent years, it’s also become one of the leaders in technology with in-car infotainment systems leading the way with voice control and other high-end add-ons that make its cars feel extra special.
Mercedes-Benz & EVs
The Mercedes-Benz EV story began in 2018, when its first fully electric vehicle, the EQC, was unveiled at a car show in Sweden. Following a great response, the brand expanded its EQ line to electric cars of all shapes and sizes. Today, the company boasts six factories that are equipped to manufacture electric vehicles, across three continents.
Top models of Mercedes-Benz
Just like its petrol and diesel range, Mercedes-Benz offers something for everyone when it comes to EV car leasing. That means from compact SUVs to luxurious vehicles and family-sized MPVs. The EQ line includes the small EQA SUV, the EQS – which can only be described as an everyday limousine – and the EQV people carrier designed for up to seven people. Plus there’s the EQC and the seven-seater EQB.
Similar brands to Mercedes-Benz
If you’re not completely set on leasing a Mercedes-Benz electric car, your best bet is to look into alternatives from other luxury brands which will give a similar level of comfort and technology. The closest competitors to Mercedes-Benz today are German rivals like Audi and BMW, as well as Tesla and Volvo.

The price of your Mercedes-Benz lease will obviously depend on the model that you choose. It is a luxury brand, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t great deals to be had. Make sure to keep checking back to see how much your desired EV costs to lease and get yourself a great deal.
There are a huge range of benefits to leasing an EV rather than buying outright. Firstly, leasing allows you to change your car more often, driving away a brand-new car every few years. You’ll never need to worry about the depreciation in value of the car either, as once the agreement is up you simply hand the vehicle back and are free to look for a new deal. On the whole, leasing an EV can be cheaper than buying outright too, especially in the short term.
Whether your Mercedes-Benz lease includes VAT or not will depend on if it’s a personal or business agreement. Personal lease deals have VAT included in the price, while business lease deals are excluding VAT.
