The best leasable electric cars in 2020
The electric car market in Switzerland in 2020
Even if sales do not yet account for a significant share of the market, their development shows that the electric car is on the upswing. According to a study by Auto Suisse, its market share in Switzerland will reach 5% in 2019. Attitudes are changing and the environmental impact of cars is on everyone's lips.
These changes have a direct impact on the sales strategy of manufacturers, who no longer hesitate to get out of SUVs and sedans. For the first time, Volkswagen has set up a complete assembly line for the production of the VW ID3 at its Zwickau plant in Germany. It is expected that 100,000 vehicles will be produced in 2020 and 330,000 in 2021. In response to the demand from motorists, manufacturers are increasingly focusing their efforts on autonomous cars, although the average driving distance in Switzerland with an electric car is estimated at 40 km.
Here is an overview of the performance of the most popular electric cars in 2020 and their price to lease them.
