Edit: Just to add some efficiency/cost data here a petrol car doing an average of 40 mpg would cost ~£1,700 in fuel for the 12,000 miles, this could cost as little as £172 for the same 12,000 miles on an off-peak EV electricity tariff, assuming 140 mile range per full 40kWh charge

If you take that saving in to account against the cost you end up spending ~£4250, instead of ~£7,460 if you leased a petrol car costing the same over the two years. (Thanks uncommon.sense)

Yeah there are a few cheapest i have seen at mo. Although will be beaten no doubt. 6000 will be enough for a lot given the limited electric range at the mo. We’ll see, probs will go 🥶

I drive 25 minutes to work each day and would total 8,500 miles if I worked 52 weeks in a year.
Even if you take out holidays you may still drive on your days off. Definitely worth calculating stuff like that with Google Maps before you commit. (I know I'm probably stating the bleeding obvious).
Can't see cost per mile if you exceed your allowance, sadly.

if the excess mileage is correct at 7p per mile then that’s £11.67 per month extra to add 2000 miles more per annum.

Slightly cheaper to just pay the excess of it’s 7p / mile
In terms of cost to run (as compared with petrol/diesel which cost around 13.5p per mile according to gov.uk figures):


40 kWh battery and 168 mile range means it should do 4.2 miles per kWh.

Charging off-peak with an Octopus Go tariff of 5p per kWh should cost of approximately 1.2p (£0.01) per mile. This means you should save approximately £1200 per 10,000 miles, compared to the average petrol/diesel.

Alternatively, charging with a standard tariff of 13p per kWh should cost approximate 3.1p (£0.03) per mile. This means you should save approximately £1000 per 10,000 miles, compared to the average petrol/diesel.
Anybody knows if this still requires a separate battery rental? As it used to be a few years ago.
Better to go for N Connecta

Absolutely. My Leaf averages 4miles per KW (Summer 4.5 and winter 3.5). I use Octopus GO which allows me to charge overnight for just 5p per kw. So 12000 miles of motoring would have af uel cost of just £150 for the year - so just over £12 a month to drive 1000 miles. And Octopus give you £50 referral credit when you switch to them if an existing customer gives you a referral code.

I don’t have an ev yet, but doing calcs ready for buying one. That tariff has amazing over night prices, the cheapest unit rate for overnight, but because of the higher day time rate it cancels out the gain for me.

It’s a better spec yeah, but value wise the Acenta is arguably better.

Acenta - total lease cost is just over 19% of the P11D price
N-Connecta - just under 22% of the P11D price

Based on it being £202/month as you’ve stated

sometimes it's best to first consider the type of Chargepoint you want. Most installers will be able to provide a selection whereas some are tied to, or only choose to supply, a handful of chargepoint manufacturers. All chargepoints do the basic thing of charging but will vary in smart features, ease of installation and how they look.
There's a £500 Grant that the installer automatically claims and knocks off your final bill. There's some conditions such as you need to have the car for at least 6 months, i think, and max 2 chargepoints per house.

Helpful to know if you have single phase (most likley) or 3 phase supply (rare but better) as that might influence the chargepoint you will choose.
Have a look at your electricity meter. The supply cable that goes into your meter will have 1 large fuse or 3 fuses. One fuse is single phase and 3 fuses is.... 3 phase.
3 phase means you can potentially charge faster at home (though not necessarily for this Leaf as it's still limited to 6.6kW)

Some of popular ones
Zappi
EO
BP ChargeMaster
Rolec
PodPoint

The other thing you will need consider, with any of those is if you want a tethered cable - the charge cable is attached to teh chargepoint (easier) or untethered - you use a cable you keep inside home or car and connect one end to car and the other end to chargepoint - each time you want to charge. Not as easy but it means you can potentially use that one cable for both charging at home and out elsewhere.

The cost difference would be about £50

Guessing you have electric heating?

Generally the day tariff is about 1p per kwh more expensive than the cheapest tariffs. The average household (non EV) uses about 10kwh per day. But you save 7.5p (against the cheapest) at night. So once you have added about 1.33kwh (about 5 miles) to the car then you are making a saving. Based on 6000 miles you will put about 4.5kwh in a day.
People generally shift other high usage items to the night too like washers, dryers, dishwashers to cut down on day use.
For many owners 50%+ of their daily use is EV charging.

While there is some money to be saved, most EV owners like them because of the ease of driving (nippy, no gears, quiet).

No electric heating. But maybe I need to review how I’m calculating. Your numbers sound much better. Think I’m going for a Audi A3 etron (PHEV rather than EV) so a much smaller charge, I do a lot less miles than most anyway so probably it won’t matter as much.
I have heard the cabin is a bit basic, like the steering wheel reach isn't adjustable and that you have to sit very upright like in a van. Will I be able to get comfortable at over 6ft tall?

Also the A3 e-tron is a lot less efficient than a pure EV. If you do low mileage the chance of any real world saving (the car costs more to buy) will be small to zero.
Buy the car for the car it is because you like the way it looks, feels and drives and not for the savings.

If it's about savings you buy a used EV and drive at 56mph behind a lorry!

Totally. Buying used as well so premium is less.
IMO I feel that in order to really financially benefit from an EV is to do 25-30k miles a year for like 10+ years.

The 62kw tekna are c. £26k on drive the deal, has a 239m range. That's probably what I would go for in about 2-3years time.

*Edit of range.

Not many people do 25-30k miles a year
ministrymason09/01/2020 12:04

Not many people do 25-30k miles a year


Exactly doing 6-8k a year isn't going to benefit for the outlay. I'm doing 10k a year in london and no driveway to install a faster port so no for now.

When I move out of London, have a driveway and probably end up doing more mileage like near 20k a year then it will be worth it. In a few years times charge point will be a lot more which makes doing long distance 200miles+ leisure trips viable like driving to Cornwall, Wales, Cumbria, without having to worry too much about charging up on holiday.

Edit misspelled. Viable.

I think that applies for purchasing a car yourself as you have to worry about depreciation, but if you’re leasing it I then think this deal makes some sense over leasing an equivalent ICE vehicle.

I'm not convince the saving will be substantial for such low mileage. Also the range aniexty. Someone posted the Kia ceed for £4300 over 2 years for 10k miles per year, now that for me it's better deal than this.

Yes I'm looking to own if I were to have an electric car and have to do 20k mile a year to save around £2k a year. Over 10 years that will work out better financially than a hybrid.

The Kia is a great deal, but it's more expensive for the same mileage as this Nissan. £4,300 leasing costs, plus ~£2,500 of fuel costs for the 20,000 miles using the official combined figure of 45mpg at £1.25 per litre. Total cost for two years of motoring is £6,800, even taking into account the excess mileage adding 8,000 miles at £0.07ppm that is £560, so £6,231 and off-peak charging at home would be ~ £285, so overall £6,516.

Can't do anything for artificial anxiety, my suggestion is to rent an EV, or take a long term loan for the Milton Keynes EV Experience centre. How many long trips do you do per annum?
