ReFLEX Orkney aims to significantly increase electric vehicle use in Orkney because they are more affordable and greener to drive and repair.
To support this effort we have discounts to make leasing electric cars and vans even more affordable with special rates on certain models exclusive to Orkney residents, with an offer that includes replacement vehicles, enhanced warranty, and easy trade-in.
You could save between about £1000 to £1800 on the market rate for a new car lease depending on the model.
From November 2021 the ReFLEX Orkney discount is available on select models of electric vehicles for lease through our leasing supplier DriveElectric. This selection focuses on vehicles that have been most popular in the first year of the project and gives Orcadians a variety of sizes, ranges and prices to chose from.
You can still lease any of the vehicles on DriveElectric’s website through ReFLEX Orkney, but you can only get the ReFLEX discount on the models shown below.
Drive green, save green. Electric vehicles are already more affordable and greener to drive and repair than petrol and diesel cars. ReFLEX Orkney offers a rare opportunity to save even more.
Choose from selected vehicles offered by our supplier DriveElectric. The ReFLEX discount is only available on the models listed on this webpage, but you can lease any vehicle shown on DriveElectric's website.

Telematics - An integral part of the Orkney energy system. ReFLEX vehicles may be set up with a telematics device, to monitor the battery and performance information so it can be used as a flexible energy storage asset within the wider integrated energy system of ReFLEX Orkney. This is key to the research aims of the project to decarbonise Orkney. If your vehicle has one you will be able to have an app on your phone, so you can see the data too. For further details on data use in the project please see our privacy notice.
