    So it's really £208.28 per month, with the deposit and admin fee considered.

    I still think it's a good deal right
    Mileage allowance? It looks like 8k miles per annum.

    That's the business price. Price for personal use is £179.92 plus deposit and admin fee. So £228.04

    This is the old model short range battery too isn't it?
    current model is 30kw battery, 24kw has been discontinued.

    You can get a 2/3 year PCP deal for around £200-£230 deposit and same per month.
    I have a 30KW Leaf, and once you go electric you wont go back, the smoothness, the quickness... for 550 miles it cost me £4.72 in electric...

    Now work out your fuel cost for 550 miles.....

    mine is £179 for 2 years though JSHolmes Nissan.... you will also get a free home charger

    This car is not quick. Compared to lower model petrol engines yes it is a little more nippy but it is very far from being a fast car.

    Well 9 gallons to do Exeter to Aberdeen (575 miles) will cost me £46 and take me 9 hours or say 10 with a couple of toilet and a lunch stop.

    Now in the leaf it will mean 7 stops at fast charges and require two charge cycles at the ecotricity charges. So let's say you change the car for the first leg on economy 7 (30kw@8p) your at £2.40.
    Now 7 double stops will cost you (7x£6x2) £84 and 16 hours.

    So with just a couple of extra coffees or a sandwich meal deal (for the longer day) it will cost you double.

    Also if you do this journey you will never want to drive an EV ever again!X)

    But as a commuter car they are great. If you can charge for cheap of even free then some good savings can be had.
    Mine is 2015 with 13000 miles on clock, want to sell for £8900/ battery owned

    It's now 14 days for first 3 years. Also you need to give up to 14 days notice. You also need to take out their overpriced insurance.

    As I said for what 90% of use they are great if you can charge for cheap/free. As soon as you have to pay for rapids the financial part goes out the window which offsets the wait time.

    You really have never driven a Leaf or or any of the current electric cars. Not talking about drag racing but maneuvering quickly in any situation. Roundabouts, hills and getting up to 70m/h+ on the motorway. Keep driving your petrol car it's so much better than electric on range alone.

    I have driven a leaf , had one for 5 days but returned it after 3 ....

    Off the mark it is responsive , exceptionally quiet which is a good thing in most situations and an incredibly frustrating one in others (manoeuvring in a car park for example with pedestrians stepping out in front of you all the time as the vehicle is so quiet , people don't hear you and alarmingly don't bother to look on may occasions , relying solely on their hearing.)
    The range anxiety is a real issue as even with careful planning , factoring in a stop for a top-up charge at one of ecotricity's many locations , you find that you get to the charge point and there is no charger currently working .... devastating If you were relying on a 20 minute top up to get you home !
    May suit those who never travel over 40 miles before returning home but unfortunately this would rule me out. I was desparate to make it work for me but the experience I had at 5 or 6 charge locations with problems at almost every one , I decided it wasn't for me.
    Motorway driving doesn't leave you feeling that this has great amounts of power up hills either as has previously been mentioned. I found it lacking any real beef to be honest but then if your coming from a Nissan micra or similar then you may well think the leaf is great
    I ended up trading my 2.0 tfsi petrol Passat for a more economical 525d 3.0 litre BMW f10 and this suits my needs better and is quicker than the leaf by a country mile in all except the 0-15 mph sprint (0-60 the larger family sized 5 series BMW is around 6 seconds quicker !), the leaf really doesn't get close , not even remotely so I fail to see how this can be described by so many as 'quick' , its all relative though I guess.
    Still have one eye on the electric cars though as I love the concept , at the moment though the only affordable one doesn't seem to offer the range I would require.

    Works great for us 2 car household, always take the leaf over the ml350 if we are going less than 80 miles total jorney as it is a better drive.

    We anticipated doing 6k of our 10k annual miles tail pipe pollution free. In fact we have done 11k of 12k miles in the leaf, the extra 2k mileage just because the cost per mile is so cheap

    can see how it'd work for many ppl as a 2nd car , if the leaf is a better drive than the ml350 , remind me never to consider buying a ml350 , lol.
    The leaf isn't a bad drive , don't get me wrong . surprised to hear that you found it to be a better drive than your merc that's all. That said I haven't driven a ml350 before

    Do you use free charging points perhaps ? Your figures equate to less than 1p a mile and will not be achievable for anyone who doesn't have free charge points at their place of work .

    dont ever buy a leaf outright, I am their biggest fan ever, but even I would never own one out of warranty, whilst their reliability is rock solid, if they break you are in for a horrendous bill.... for example £1700 for a broken heater etc..... because the engine is all one unit even a basic repair is lots of hours and only doable by Nissan

    and because they dont break down, spares are non existent, one youtuber whose dog chewed through his seatbelt had to buy another car for as it failed his MOT and it took 8 weeks to get a new seat belt from Nissan Japan

    I dont know if it is a perception problem, or Nissa Et Al not being clear with their message... apart from Tesla Electric cars are simply not aimed at motorway drivers.... around town I can sit in a 10 min traffic queue and use 'zero' battery, infact I will gain if I have regen braking on... no ICE car even start stop technology can claim that.....

    it is interesting though as every person who does not see the future always claims Motorway, which is excellent as in 2 years that barrier will vanish with the longer range....

    To be fair , it isn't about people not 'seeing the future' as you put it , around 70% of my driving is town driving which even with a low 30% motorway driving still causes concerns regarding range .
