Jay’s electric adventures

3 min read
Summary

Jay Jasani, an IT professional based in Geelong, has always loved to blend functionality with a bit of futuristic flair. His car of choice, the Hyundai Ioniq 5, is not just a means of transport but a gateway to weekend explorations and family bonding across Victoria. With its distinct cyberpunk aesthetic and cutting edge features, Jay’s choice reflects his appreciation for technology and design, alongside a commitment to environmental sustainability.

Family weekends on the move

Every weekend, Jay and his family hit the road to enjoy shopping in Melbourne, visit friends and discover scenic drives through Victoria’s diverse landscapes. The Ioniq 5, with its spacious interior and rapid charging capability, ensures that their travel is not only stylish but also uninterrupted by lengthy charging stops. “The main reason I chose the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is its unique modern Cyberpunk design, range efficiency, rapid charging, internal design and space, dual display and modern safety features,” says Jay.

Jay's lease:

What do you love about your new car? “I love the Ioniq’s unique modern Cyberpunk design, range efficiency, rapid charging, internal design and space.”

Choosing a novated lease with Flare

When it came time to choose a new car, Jay opted for Flare’s novated leasing program, drawn by the promise of financial ease and comprehensive coverage. “The key motivations for my decision were the tax savings and the inclusion of maintenance expenses. It also allowed me to upgrade my vehicle without straining my finances.” 

The process was made even smoother by Monica, his leasing consultant at Flare. “Despite my numerous questions as a first time lessee, some of which might have seemed trivial, she remained patient and addressed each one thoroughly.”

“Novated leasing can feel overwhelming for first time leaseholders. At Flare, we understand that a new car can be a big decision. It’s important to make sure our leaseholders have all the information available to them so they can make informed choices.”

Embracing the EV lifestyle

The choice to switch to an electric vehicle was driven by more than just economic benefits — it was a decision shaped by environmental considerations and a fascination with innovative tech. “By opting for an EV, I was able to take advantage of FBT tax savings, while also contributing to environmental sustainability,” Jay notes, highlighting the dual benefits of cost efficiency and reduced ecological footprint.

Jay also cites the Ioniq’s tech features, some of which double as advanced safety systems, as key to his decision. Things like 250V ports for devices, digital side mirrors, AR display, sat nav, Bose premium audio and more, Jay says the bells and whistles were surprisingly affordable. 

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 experience

For Jay, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 stands out not only for its aesthetics but also for its performance. “After evaluating several cars based on safety, interior space and design, as well as range and charging capabilities within a similar budget, the IONIQ 5 emerged as the standout choice for our family’s requirements,” he says. 

In fact, the instant torque and minimal maintenance needs of the EV add to its appeal, emphasising the shift from traditional automotive norms to a smoother, more responsive driving experience.

The simplicity of EV charging

Jay finds EV charging to be surprisingly straightforward. “So far in my experience, the charging process is pretty easy and isn’t required as often as I was originally anticipating,” he shares, firmly debunking myths about the hassles of owning an EV.

Jay’s electrifying leap with Flare

Jay’s transition to an EV through Flare’s novated leasing program exemplifies the seamless integration of lifestyle, tech and sustainability and its possibilities. His story is a testament to how innovative leasing solutions can enhance the accessibility of EVs, making them a practical (and affordable) choice for modern families looking to balance comfort, luxury and responsibility.
