New data for March 2021 released by Leasing.com shows Hyundai is now the top EV manufacturer when it comes to leasing enquiries in the UK. The uplift is mainly being driven by Hyundai’s two entry-level EVs, the Ioniq five-door hatchback and the Kona SUV.
Whilst VW has taken the manufacturers’ crown, there’s a new leader in the models list. And it’s a Brit. Vauxhall has been a British brand since 1903 and its new Corsa has overtaken the Audi A3 as the most enquired about vehicle on Leasing.com in March of this year.

Demand is expected to be felt the most in Wales and Yorkshire and the Humber, the two regions with the highest number of Brits expected to change their vehicle in the next 12 months (23% vs 22%).
The Audi A3 topped the list of leasing enquires on Leasing.com, followed by the Volkswagen Golf and affordable Vauxhall Corsa. Perhaps the biggest surprise at the start of 2021 has been the downturn in enquiries on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, and Mercedes-Benz in general.
In the six months between 23 March and 23 September 2020, inquiries on two-year lease deals with a one-month initial payment are up 98% year on year, while three-year deal enquiries are up 80%, and four-year deal enquiries are up 114% over 2019.
