This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Excellent price for a £61k car - deals with more mileage available for those who need it, and excess mileage charges are probably minimal (Arval quoted me an excess mileage charge of 13p per mile on the same car)

£61k car that you can’t drive as only 5k miles Cold for me

£61k car that you can’t drive as only 5k miles Cold for me


Oddly enough the car won't just stop working if you exceed the 5K, you pay a little more in mileage charges !
Just to give a bit of an insight into the costs of fuel. If a car does around 45mpg average (efficient diesel), it'll cost around £110pm for 10k miles per year. For most electric cars (there's not as much variance in efficiency in EVs as there is ICE cars) it can cost as little as £16pm for the same 10k miles a year. So when comparing the true cost of an EV to a conventional car, you want to take off around £95pm (this figure gets higher when comparing conventional cars that have a poorer average mpg).

My commute is 6 miles, I don't have kids and I cycle in to work around once a week. Even with weekend driving I clock up about 4k miles a year.

I leased my A4 for two years and didn't have to service it even on a maintenance free contract. I'll be doing the same with my current A6. My next car will be an EV.

Lots of people do far fewer annual miles than some people seem to think.

Besides all this, this is a very good deal based on equivalent offers (and the annual cost versus OTR cost %) is decent- therefore its hot.

excess mileage charges are normally very reasonable on Audi's depending on lender - i was quoted 13 pence per mile over the limit...

So say addl 5k a year works out about £45 extra a month

you can drive it as far as you want, you just have to pay the excess mileage charge when you hand the car back. Not a big deal at all for me but each to their own.

Fair, I haven't seen a better deal on this car / similar cars but feel free to show me I'm wrong

That's over £1 per mile before you put electric into it!

Check the cost of similar alternatives over a 2 year period...


I can charge for free at a charging point near me and even when you have to pay it's possible to run the car for below 10p per mile for electricity

5k miles a year would be a crime in that car! You want to go on a decent journey a few times a year along with driving to work, 5k won’t even get you to work and back in a year!

Poor mileage allowance. Works out about £1.20 per mile before taking into consideration charging costs. No thanks

I don't think this is entirely true. A Tesla is a lot more efficient than this.

Yes ok. My comment should probably say, with the fuel price (electricity) so low, it's a negligible difference in price regardless which EV you end up with. The biggest influence is going to be the efficiency of the ICE you are comparing it to.

On the flip side of this whole argument (because I like to sit on the fence). Once the government start loosing a lot of fuel duty, I'd imagine there will be some kind of equivalent tax on electricity used on cars. So I highly doubt it'll stay this cheap for longer than a decade. Either way, the house always wins

Spot on .Usual government headline news last month without thinking it through.We will need a massive infrastructure program to get us all in EV not to mention cost and history has told us we can't build anything on time and in budget in UK.

Very true...there needs to be over 2500 charging points installed EVERY DAY from now until 2040 to cope. Our Government has just given funding to install 2000 this YEAR.

I haven't done for 20 years, I do 6/7k a year at the most and that's all fun/family trips. My car cost me more than this one and I don't regret it one bit.

What is this figure based on? My assumption is that 99% of charging would happen at the property. Although I understand 40% of the population live in flats / no off street parking. I think these are the people who will need to have the infrastructure invested in. Hopefully by 2040, the range of electric cars will surpass the length any sane person can do without stopping for a break. I think as a comparison, how many people fill up at their local petrol station rather than one mid journey (or on the service station). I'd imagine the latter is a very small percentage.

Yes, and add in the fact that a) who's going to be supplying petrol when say half the market is electric, b) what does this do to the price of conventional fuels (if there's not the demand, there won't be the investment, therefore prices could go up), and finally c) because of the above, the potential depreciation of a used ICE car approaching the cut off dates, which will push more demand onto the electric car and raise prices. I guess as long as there are diesel HGVs there will be a decent amount of demand. But given drivers can only travel so long and then have to take long breaks, they're the ideal candidate for electric vehicles.
very interesting you tube video here, in running a range of EV cars until they died of power....worth a view for sure

Don't buy this if you need to use Ioniq charge points
