This is a plug-in electic hybrid 4x4. Its batteries are rated at 32 miles of range, and then there's a 2-litre petrol engine.

It's ideal for school run and other short journeys. Official mpg is 148mpg, which is based on the electricity cost on a short run - no actual petrol used. When you run out of battery, it's rated as 49mpg on petrol, so you'll probably get under 40mpg on petrol alone (the fuel tank has a 45 litre capacity )

Charge time 5 hours on a normal socket.

Company car tax band: 5%, no VED, no congestion charge.

Comes with:
18" alloys
roof rails
daylight running lights
electric heated/folding mirrors
rear parking sensors
auto wipers
4wd
6-speaker cd radio with bluetooth, usb, steering wheel control
dual-zone climate
cloth interior
5 seats

It's got a 10,000 mile annual mileage allowance, there'll be a fee per mile if you exceed that. There is no document fee, and the price includes VAT.

A similar diesel car would use about £3,000 worth of fuel in 2 years. If your usage is suited to the car (short journeys), then you'll save a large part of that fuel cost. There is free charging for electric cars in many places.

These are in stock, so you won't wait long. White paint, black interior.

Never seemed like a great deal these lease options on the past, however this does look like a great deal for short journey battery only users. Heat added.

Looked at these before release as my commute is 33 miles round trip. Prices for the base model have not changed much since then. Worked out I could save around £120 a month in fuel, so fuel cost could go towards lease costs. Waiting to hear back if my work will install a charge point. And now also waiting for the Golf GTE to come out, hopefully there will be some good lease deals on that, like we have seen on the R.

heat added,

been waiting for a good lease deal on one of these.
Will save loads over the diesel we have as only used for short journeys under 30 miles a day

Thanks OP

For those who do a lot of small journeys, and taking the fuel saving into account, good deal. Voted hot

How much does a charge cost if you need to do it at home though?

Full charge would be around a quid I think. I would need charge point at work to make it worthwhile as there is no way you would get 32 miles out of it in winter using the heater, prob same in summer using the aircon.

About £1.30 - from empty to full - my husband has one as a company car☺️ and the car tells you how much each charge costs.
There's also the regenerative braking to consider - that can really extend the range on stop-start journeys.

Ye Gods. Forty thousand pounds for a car that saps electricity and soul in equal measures??? oO

It's a 12kWh capacity battery so 12x whatever your unit price is (mine is about 11.2p at moment).

Manufacturers like to quote economy 7 prices.

Good review on Autoexpress - autoexpress.co.uk/mit…iew

Seems a very good deal - shame about the white body (personal choice!) but other colours are an option for a bit more upfront.

white looks like the World health organisation Ebola van.

I have just spoken to Rivervale and they are offering a metallic paint colour at the same cost, so you don't have to have a white car. I was told that grey and black were available quickest.

Cos you wouldnt want to own his type of vehicle ...





( hybrid )

Can't help thinking a cheaper small engined petrol or diesel car will be more cost effective to run.

Am I out of touch or is 49 mpg on petrol shockingly bad?

I wouldn't expect a 2L petrol to even do that, especially with the weight of this car.

£1.30 per charge. These cars are magnificent. We have one. Daily commute 26 mile round trip and only uses a thimble of fuel. 1100 miles so far, about £50 fuel used; rest leccy.

Where else can you get such low running costs and the peace of mind of 4wd with winter coming.

Unbeatable machines....so roomy too!

Nissan Leaf with winter tyres?

Do also consider if you want an EV, installing a point a home, if you can, will cost £3-400 usually.

If you are in the market for a 4x4 then it's probably a good deal, as it will probably depreciate more than the lease, othewrwise, not exactly second car material.

Is it me though, or is there something ironic about a, SUV type 4x4 electric vehicle?

From what I can find out British Gas will install the charging unit at your home for just £115 Inc VAT....

Further to the Office of Low Emission Vehicles’ recent announcement to reduce the subsidised funding for electric vehicle home charge points, we can no longer offer a charging point free of charge. Our new price for a subsidised charging point is £115 (including VAT) for the 16 Amp data-enabled charging point (4.5m cable) with a recommended connector that’s most suitable for your own specific vehicle.

cool, last figures I saw were BG prices for an installation, which obviously didn't include a discount then. Totally forget how many subsidies there are around to persuade the uptake.

The comment at the beginning is a bit misleading. My diesel ibiza cost 650-700 quid per 10000 miles. I don't know where the 3 grand comes from.

Looked at these before release as my commute is 33 miles round trip.


They say 32 miles range, I would expect to get just over 20 in real life. Nissan Leaf is advertised at 120, but on the phone they told me it's about 80, and probably real life will be even less.

Agreed, with heater and air con I was estimating about 20-25 miles electric range, hence the need for a charge point at my work to make it worthwhile. Still waiting on work's decision......

i have an Auto 1.6 307sw....does 33mpg, so for a 2.0 thats a great mpg figure

this is tempting, if it wasnt for the deposit i would seriously consider it, especially as im on economy 7.... 5p/kw i think

Cracking price, shame the car doesn't seem up to much. Only other plugin hybrids I like are the BMW i3, where the lease prices are hillariously high, or the vauxhall ampera where you can buy a 2 year old car for £15k - lost £20k in 2 years! Not sure toyota are that serious about plugin tech, the prius is still expensive for its abilities.

What car do you have now? At average prices you seem to only get 33 ish MPG, even less maybe if you can save £120 a month on a 33 mile round trip to work.

A half decent diesel car will halve your fuel bill, and cost less than the £250pm deal here so will work out the same. Saves all the hassle of getting charging points put in everywhere.

Honestly, electric cars are not worth it.

Have a look at this deal as an example: hotukdeals.com/dea…815

Ford Focus 1.6 TDCi 115 Zetec. £99.99 + vat per month (£120). That's £130 a month cheaper than this and should return an average of 52mpg but motorways can see exceed 70mpg (as per comments on that thread).

At £120pm if I was to assume that was just commuting (33 miles x 20 working days) is 660 mile per month.
£120 @ 125p/litre is 96 litres (let's call it 100 litres) or 22 gallons.

Monthly 660 miles/22 gallons equates to 30mpg

You could probably still save some decent money by buying any other vehicle that offers good fuel economy, don't restrict yourself to EV

A small family hatchback is not a similar car for a start.

10,000 miles a year at £1.30 a litre at about 39.5mpg equates to £3000 over the two years.
That's about the average you'd expect from a 4x4 SUV.

However I do find it remarkable that according to your calculations you're averaging over 90MPG.

The other thing to keep in mind with plug in vehicles is that you're less at the mercy of the pump prices, as you can fix your electricity rate for a couple of years and know more accurately what the total monthly cost will be in months to come.

Not quite sure how a huge, heavy, child crushing 4x4 is "ideal for the school run". Unless the school is in a jungle / desert but generally I think most schools even have pavements around them these days. presumably for 4x4 drivers to drive and park on.

Good cars from Mitsubishi, REALLY dull interiors.

We've got a Leaf, the entry model Visia, which returns the poorest number of miles per charge - we get 80 easy.

If you turn eco off and drive like you think you're Lewis Hamilton you'll get less than that, but as a rule 8 miles per 10% of charge is very doable.

That's a lease deal too, thread here, if anyone's interested. Nearly 7 months in and we've done 8000 miles on £300's worth of electricity.

Yeah, he's a bit low with his costs there, not sure I believe him.

My car is at 10932 miles and it has cost me £1,135.80 in fuel so far - about 10.4p/mile. Hyundai i20 Blue Drive 1.1 Diesel.

(a) No it doesn't.
(b) An Ibiza is a supermini, this is a 4x4, you might as well compare it with your moped?

I don't know where the 3 grand comes from.



Diesel is £1.30/litre, £5.91/gallon.

20,000 miles in two years at 40mpg (typical consumption for a similar diesel 4x4) is 500 gallons of diesel. 500 * £5.91 = £2955
