You pay a monthly rental to cover all your costs of using a car or van.
You can cancel the subscription and just hand back the vehicle.
Monthly subscription covers depreciation, servicing and repairs, tyres, insurance and breakdown recovery and, typically, recharging costs.
You can swap to a new car whenever you want to keep pace with developments in battery and other in-car technology.
You get a fixed monthly 'allowance' of inclusive mileage and can top-up or 'roll-over' mileage if necessary.
Monthly payments are a lot more expensive than traditional car or van finance or leasing.
If the vehicle is damaged outside the insurance terms you are liable for the repair costs.
Recharging points may be limited to those operated by the subscription company or its affiliates.
Usage restrictions may apply to limit how you drive the vehicle and 'black-box' telematics may report on your driving behaviour.
