£2000 towards a used Nissan LEAF (electric) when trade in & bought on finance

From the Nissan page:
Simply trade in your car registered in 2009 or earlier and we will give you up to £2000 towards to a used 100% electric Nissan Leaf* or, in addition to our existing offers, you can get thousands off selected new Nissan vehicles**.

I'm into electric cars, always looking for deals. I thought this is a good one.

I know the new leaf is right at the corner, but if you are looking to buy a cheap electric car, you may find a very good deal. Just check your local dealer. You may find a PCP deal around £150 pm with no deposit when you trade in your car.
Also remember, you can settle finance straight away.

Used Nissan leafs are around £8000 - £12000 price range in general.

£2000 discount offer is on top of your car's trade in value. Hence, if your car is very old, they may take it as zero value. £2000 is minimum they're going to discount.

Which is worse, burning dirty coal in power stations or burning dirty diesel in towns?

Would you like some stats on how much wind and solar electricity generation China has installed in the last 12 months?

Perhaps I could refer you to a recent report that shows even using Europe's dirtiest electricity (in Poland) that electric cars produce 25% less CO2 over their lifetime than their diesel equivalent and that in some of the cleaner generating European countries that increases to 75% less lifetime CO2.

Which do you prefer, facts or opinions?

New one coming and they depreciated as quicker than it takes to charge.And let’s not forget the only way you get a green one is if you tick they colour when ordering.

Got a nissan leaf - 2015 model - bought for £8500 last year with 9000miles on it.

Range of about 90 miles - so good for work and pottering around town. Charging time depends on your input - 32kw is much quicker than slapping it on a 13amp plug

We’re upgrading to a tesla next year as the range is 350miles +... but there’s nothing wrong with the leaf.

All the jokes about AA batteries (etc...) yawwwn!

The leaf is lovely to drive - is pretty nippy off the mark (i’ve hammered many boy racers between the lights!!). And i have zero complaints. It is what it is... a posh go-kart...

In 20 years time we’ll all have electric cars and the sad little petrol heads will be weeping - how nice will it be not to hear ****** with big exhausts on a 2005 vauxhall corsa screaming round town...!!!!

just asking, a 5 year old 50k miles leaf - the batteries are going to be near end of life, arn't they?

Cheers, title is updated.

@shalton, you need to check the battery health status. You can check how many bars it have.
Btw, If it's a battery leased car, you don't have to worry, they will take care. If the battery is owned, warranty is eight years or 100,000 miles. Details: nissan.co.uk/veh…tml

I've asked a dealer, £2000 discount offer is on top of your car's trade in value. Hence, if your car is very old, they may take it as zero value. £2000 is minimum they going to discount.

I loved driving on a test drive but took ages to charge and the range was awful alright for local journeys

In today's news:

"Electric car sales in China booming, according to China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM).

At new the original range would have been between 100 and 70 miles depending on driving style, weather conditions and temperature. At 5 years and 50k miles that is likely to be 80-40 miles dependent on the same factors but will vary depending on how the battery has been treated.

Ours is 2.5 years old and 25k miles and will just about manage 100 still if driven like a granny on local roads but more like 70 if you drive on faster roads in the dark and rain.

However newer ones have a bigger battery with 25% more range and from Jan there will be a further 33% range boost and more power.

I think it is over 8 years old rather than under 8 years old as it is supposed to encourage 'scrappage' of older more polluting vehicles.

However the standard 'deposit contribution' is 1k with no trade in so it is only an extra 1k which may bee similar or even less than a 9 year old car is worth.

I'm no supporter of diesel, but there is no electric equivalent of diesel - there range is useless compared.

Petrol hybrid (without a plug) is the cleanest car on UK roads and has been for a long time.

I use facts, I'm a published journalist and have written for The Guardian and numerous car magazines.

Regarding China, if you add 400,000 cars, each using ~ 24kWh of electric a day, that's 9,600 MWh of electricity each day.

That's around a third of the entire electricity consumption in the UK on November 12th.

Are you suggesting this isn't a significant addition to their dirty power grid?

And had those Chinese cars instead been diesel then they would not have output any pollution or CO2?

Electric cars have shorter range but then most UK drivers only make short journeys. Average car does what 8k pa = 22 miles per day - there are no electric cars for sale in the UK that can't do at least 90 miles on the realistic US measurement.

If the people driving electric cars were doing so because they are electric, and wouldn't have driven at all otherwise, then the earlier argument hodls.

But they probably would have driven anyway and would use diesel which is less efficient bung generated in cars than electricity generated from power plants (Including coal ones).

Correlation and causality are two different things and it'd be very useful to not mix the two up.

The faster windmills are observed to rotate, the more wind is observed to be.Therefore wind is caused by the rotation of windmills. (Or, simply put: windmills, as their name indicates, are machines used to produce wind.)

An example off Wiki...

China will produce more co2 than current value if that 400,000 electric cars turned to diesel, simple!

You miss the point that most people won't be fully charging their cars every single day. In the UK most power is either gas, electric or wind, so the co2 savings are significant. Electric cars are far more efficient too, remember that a 24kwh leaf contains the same energy as about 2.5 litres of petrol and it can do up 100 miles on that.

LOL electric cars are not for everyone but I have had my Leaf since April and unless my job depended on it, I won’t be going back to combustion engines! The range isn’t magnificent with the 24kw battery but if you drive sensibly then a 100 miles per charge is very doable as long as the conditions allow it! The best range I have done in my 24 is 112 (obviously I had to charge in between as you wouldn’t want to get to 0

I have gone from the Midlands to Belgium and back in mine with no issues and the charging infrastructure is getting better all the time!

There will always be people against it but I do around 600/700 miles per month and it costs me around £20-25 using the Polar network as I do not have a home charger installed!

if i find something pathetic i would try and say why, nothing pathetic about anything i wrote, a new model is coming cant argue with that, it depreciates quickly you can pick up a 30 grand one for £7.5 two year old at the moment and there was 1 year olds for around that price in September. electric cars are not green just because they have zero emissions coming from them doesnt make the mining for the batteries green, transporting them by ship half way around the world to be processed, then again for manufacturing and then you have the ultra green electicity generation, is this the piece you have a problem with then thats a blinkered way to look at things. . Please tell me which piece of it is pathetic, all true nothing made up at all so please explain your comment.

How about the fact that if there were no ice cars and only electric then there would be a lot less deaths from air pollution? Even going with power stations producing more co2 these would keep the pollution out off city's were the majority of people live. And by the way I have a diesel car as I bought it following government advice at the time.2015, it's 0 road tax.

and sadly this winter which looks to be the coldest we will produce just enough power for the countries needs, the car maybe but as a country our power network surely isnt efficient. What should have happened is that car manufactures should have been given grants and incentives to make hyrdogen work but sadly the government who we all know are good at this thing decided electric was the way forward just like they did with diesel and that worked out ok didnt it. All the while we are having to wait for a couple of car manufacturers to get hydrogen right while the others make hay with tax payers cash.

That's the bigger battery, the 24 has less iirc, certainly less miles, the Nissan website is a bit vague on some of this...

The price list page doesn't immediately give up the lease costs, but "purchase battery option" only.

*EDIT*
24kw is 5 year/60k
30kw is 8 year/100k

Can't find battery lease on the Leaf at all, only on that mini van... anyone else found it?

On your trip to Belgium, how long and how often did you have to sit waiting for charging?
Also, in that roughly how far was your trip ?

I can't get the idea of sitting in services every 80 miles...

Wow, so many people drinking the electric car "kool aid" here, it's truly not worth the effort.

Hopefully sometime soon the government will realise that we need to invest in clean power more and not subsidise pointless middle class playthings that will be a pile of heavy metals on the scrap heap before we see any environmental benefits.

Heavily subsidised electric vehicles are not = to heavily taxed internal combustion.

If it's popular, it'll be taxed hard. This is probably about as close to a golden age for electric cars you'll ever see. Because if/when everybody has them you can damn well be certain you won't be getting mega subsidies for buying and running them.

Got a nissan leaf - 2015 model - bought for £8500 last year with 9000miles on it.

Range of about 90 miles - so good for work and pottering around town. Charging time depends on your input - 32kw is much quicker than slapping it on a 13amp plug

We’re upgrading to a tesla next year as the range is 350miles +... but there’s nothing wrong with the leaf.

All the jokes about AA batteries (etc...) yawwwn!

The leaf is lovely to drive - is pretty nippy off the mark (i’ve hammered many boy racers between the lights!!). And i have zero complaints. It is what it is... a posh go-kart...

In 20 years time we’ll all have electric cars and the sad little petrol heads will be weeping - how nice will it be not to hear ****** with big exhausts on a 2005 vauxhall corsa screaming round town...!!!!

Assuming they every 80 miles, in a nicely convenient manner... Quite likely you could be topping up every 40-50 miles. That would get old very quickly.
I could have driven the entire way on one tank of diesel....

My dirty old deisel (which I bought on the last scrappage scheme) would get me to Brussels and back, from the north... an electric only at the moment is a definate no-go, I'm asking because I genuinely want to know, and genuinely cant understand the electric-only stuff....
...hopefully next year or 2 I'll swap this one in on some scrappage deal for a hybrid, but not all-electric, not living up here in the wilds, it'd take me a full charge just to get to the nearest services!

Personal Opinion Alert, those who live in cities and claim these are great, at 20-40k each, I really, really think you should be using public transport or hybrid/elec taxis and not buying a car if you're "serious" about the environmental impact. Those batteries, the tech involved and the shipping in dirty old containerships is still nasty... I find it quite hypocritical, but thats just me...
