Short term (6 months?) personal lease options

    I'm in the process of buying an electric car but due to shortages it could be up to 6 months or longer before we get one - it will be through Ford.

    Is there any way we could lease a newer car than the one we have for the duration we're waiting for? Car rental like enterprise would just be too expensive.

    Don't want anything too extravagant necessarily but a SUV style automatic would be nice to get used to what's coming soon. Right now we're driving a 10+ year old Focus, although it did pretty much fly the NCT recently which is nice.

    Had a look at some personal lease websites but all seem to be 2 year minimum.

    Why don't you want to just keep driving the current Focus until the new car arrives? Seems a silly waste of money not to imo.
