Showing £500 deposit when I look?

6000 miles ? Is it worth the hassle. A decent diesel car will do 6000 miles for £500 of diesel, that's just over £40 a month. Also the electric is not free anyway, so the true saving is very little.

If they 6k miles is spread across the year, then your 16ish miles a day, let's presume you are going to and from work, so less than 8 miles a trip in your decent diesel car isn't going to be too healthy, plus you'd be much cheaper purchasing a petrol car in the first place. i doubt you'd be seeing 65mpg (to give 500 quid) from it either. Then you'll likely have GFR valve issues, possibly ad blue to worry about etc. Modern diesels are horribly complex things.

If you only do 6k a year, then it's petrol all the way money wise, but a leaf at 200 quid a month is a huge step forward, and isn't all about saving money.

Diesel car would have to be free for that to be a comparison. Chances of getting a new 'decent' diesel car and running it for an overall lower TCO seem low.

Also, see the comments where people have chargers are available at workplace, in this case vast majority of Electricity would be free.

​where does it say that ?

Paid £2500 down and £208 per month for three years with 20k per year, picking mine up on Monday.

I really want this to be batter value for me over my existing diesel (2.2 Civic, £15k miles p/a), but my (possibly terrible) calculations result in this being more expensive. I understand it's a new car, and cool tech, and environmentally better, but I don't think I can justify the extra expense.
Edited by: "GibsonSt19" 9th Mar

I really want to go electric but I'm not sure if it's real value for money in my situation so I would appreciate some help.

We run 2 cars so we can get rid of one and replace it with this. Probably spend about £60 a month on petrol per car, and when I factor in reduced car tax (not exactly sure how much less this will be), no MOT for 2 years, I'm roughly estimating spending £2k per petrol car compared to about £5k for this. Depreciation on existing cars would probably add £1k a year. Difference about £2k maybe.

I appreciate this is a brand new car with all mod cons etc, so I'm really tempted.

The deal isn't available on website you have to call Nissan Birmingham Central , I increased mine to 10k miles I think it's about £15 a month extra, even if you go over the mileage I think it's something like £100-150 extra cost are the end of 2 years for every 1k miles, can't remember what the exact figure was but I'm sure it wasn't much. The benefit with this was that you only pay a £200 deposit. However if your'e getting metallic paint, parking sensors( even though you have 360 degrees cameras) extra mileage , gap insurance and other extras it can go up to £270 a month but that depends on your own preference ( the car is the Tekna model which is already fully loaded) they also encourage you to return it at the end as because of the depreciation it isn't worth it and they want you to get the new model after 24 months.
I felt it benefitted me as I spend £150-200 a month on diesel.

What do you mean "diesel car would have to be free for that comparison"
You would use £500 in deisel over a year for 6000 miles, and the car would have to be free?
Sorry, you expect to run a brand new car and do 6000 miles, then just pay £500 to cover the diesel cost!

I bet your excited, coolest car in the car park ..... Datsun plug in electric......
20,000 miles per annum, god that's some charging up!
I've done it, you spend more time waiting for it to charge than driving it, then you realise your charger at home is not quick enough, so you get cards and use rapid chargers on motorway etc. £6 a charge!
I could go on for ever, argue now, but 3 months into it you will agree with me.

stop complaining, with all the saving you've made from ev, you're now driving a rolls royce wraith!!

That's a great deal. It's better than what I was offered a few weeks back and I work at a Nissan supplier so get a discount.

Ooh tempted. What's the lead time?

Im thinking of changing the cactus after mate bought an identical one last month.

Works out £25 cheaper a month plus fuel savings.

its also worth ringing round some other dealers. ive recently gone for one of these in white with 8k p/a for £189 dep & £189 monthly payment. dealers are willing to undercut each other to get the business.

I have had my leaf almost 2 years. I've gone 6k over The 8k miles per year. There is one way to show what i have thought of my first time with the leaf. What is my next Car?

I have just ordered another Nissan Leaf.

If you are expecting to be accommodating in 1 way or another for owning an electric I think it helps. For example, u can't blaze up and down motorways at 80mpg and expect 155 miles. Charging at home has never been a problem for me. I work normal office hours and just put it on charge when I get home and it's charged in the morning. If u requireme multiple charges during the day I could imagine it causing a bit of an anxiety wondering if it will charge enough. But that's not been my situation, I don't often do over 70-80 miles in a day.

if you have any queries just let me know. But it's been a great car.

Most of the time I can see the range not being a problem. But it's those trips to the country at weekends or needing to go to the airport make it a bit more limiting.

Had my Leaf 9 months, love it. Charges overnight at home, 30 miles of commuting each day is well within range. My 24kWh model does 80-90m in summer, 50-60m in winter. Costs me about £1 a day in electricity, used to spend £4 a day on petrol.

Exactly its OK saying "I only do 20 miles a day" but surely everyone at some point needs to do more than 100 Miles in one go.

You're paying £10,000 then? I just don't like the risk of being stuck with a car payment should circumstances change. Would rather just pay for a car I can afford upfront.

Were you charging it at home on a 13amp socket? That's the only way I can work out why it's not quick enough. Our EV charges overnight, never an issue. Seldom use remote chargers, but we've done over 8k in our first year.

Is that the range, jesus wept no wonder the masses arn't biting, how long till the car eats it's batteries and your stuck with a stupidly expensive bill.

Seen these go for next to nothing within 4-5 years of use, bet that's because the batteries failing already.

test drove it for 3 day's ok for nipping around town but long runs forget it! make good second car

Think of the CHILDREN! Go electric. (From a Mercedes B250E fully electric owner)

I believe the standard charge lead is only 10amp, so will be at least 10 hours for a full charge on the 24kwh model, longer for the 30kwh model.

i dont understand what you mean when you say that people will spend more time cherging, than driving. I also don't understand what you mean when you say that the home chargers are too slow. Could you please explain?

I appreciate these cars will not be for everyone, but if your daily driving is less than 100 miles, then surely its great and you just charge it over night. Or have I missed something?

10 amp is for the 'Granny Charger'. A three pin plug you use for occasional use (Like when you vist your granny, hence the name). Most of the time you will use a 3.3 kw/h or 6.6 kw/h (Depends on if you buy the 6.6kw/h option) J1772 lead at work or at home with a dedicated unit. It would fully charge in about 4-9 hours, but you never go to 0% in reality.

I owned one for 2 years and it was a doddle. I regularly travelled 150 miles and just used the rapid chargers to complete the journey. Went on holiday from The Midlands to Cornwall twice with no drama or range anxiety. If you are really worried you can probably hire a car for a day with the petrol savings.

Test drive one for a week and then see what you think. Nothing to lose and you will probably save a bit of petrol money while trying it.

UPDATE
--------
Forgot to mention servicing is £99 a year (No oil, no gaskets, no gearbox). I used to pay £400+ on my old car.
A taxi firm has done about 130,000 and the battery has lost less than 10% degradation. There were fears about battery life about 5 years ago, but the experience has been much better in that time. Nissan have replaced 1 battery in 5 years due to degradation and faults.

2 minutes at Shell and I can do 800 I really genuinly can't see the point in electric cars yet. Sure you might be able to get some free electricity (your employer pays - see how long that lasts when everyone in the car park is topping up). But you then have to spend 30 minutes waiting to get a little further on the airport run. It's not like they are better for the enviroment either, the electricity still has to come from somewhere and the manufaturing of the batteries is just nasty.

For those thinking of doing 20k miles a year surely you are going to be in a situation where if it ain't being driven its being charged? Batteries are going be knackered in no time.

Have a leaf now on a four day test. It charges up around 10 miles range an hour from a home plug. Charged it to 85 miles range and did a 64 mile journey this week. Topography is important with these. Obviously, if you go up lots of hills and not down as many, range decreases. As it does with climate control usage .Putting it in B mode will let it regenerate the battery on slow down or down hills which makes you read the road better in front of you. I made it to my destination with - - - on the dash. 0 left. It still drives no issues. Apparently, it will still do 20 mph for a while when it hits 0. I'm impressed by the acceleration and top end is 100, but obviously saps charge. It's a shame you can't charge for free using the ecotricity card any more, but there are other ways to charge for free(Nissan dealer). I'm going in tomorrow to look at a deal on 10k per annum. £100 a month saving on fuel (if charged for free)can go towards the £199 or maybe a little more with 10k. Really tempted! Try the 4 day trial and see if it fits your lifestyle! LEAF

Probably best to ring them as their contact form does not work. "504 Gateway Time-out error"

You can't book a 4 day test drive online (only a 1 hour test drive). You'd need to call your nearest dealer instead.
