Found 27th Feb 2017
Lots of heat for the Contract Hire deal on this at the moment, and knowing that the lease versus buy debate always rages on, I thought I'd share the purchase deal on the vehicle via carwow. The list price is £33,400 for the top of the range model and the best price I've had so far is £20,950 from Brindley Nissan in Cannock. In summary:

Nissan Leaf Tekna 30kW 5dr Auto
Brand New unregistered car
Includes 12 months road tax
0% finance over 2 years with £1000 deposit price includes 6.6kW Charger
Up to 3 years free servicing & pan-European roadside assistance
Flame red solid paint
Add different solid, metallic or pearl paint for an extra £250, £575 or £795 respectively
Plus specify options, although there aren't many as this is top of the range model

Offer available until 31 March

Anyway, I hope this is helpful to someone. Apologies if it was mentioned in the contract hire thread and I didn't see it.

Catastrophic depreciation on these cars - lease makes much more sense.
Do you even own the battery on these or have to rent them or something from Nissan?

It's PCP so there'd be a guaranteed future value to judge it by. I haven't seen depreciation figures, but I'd probably go for the lease if I was to get one of these. But some people are happier owning.

You can't look at depreciation in isolation though, you need to factor in running costs. Based on 10,000 miles a year, you're looking at a £700 annual saving on "fuel" costs over something as frugal as a FORD Focus 1.0T EcoBoost. If you factor that in to the savings, it's up there with the Vauxhall Meriva and Fiat 500L in terms of residuals.

List price is a little misleading - I suspect the RRP is before the gov subsidy, the OTR price after it
isnt the road tax free on these. thought it would be for all ev cars.

Technically it's both, cash or PCP (as opposed to contract hire). The price quoted is for PCP, slightly higher for cash. But if you want to pay cash you can always get the PCP and then pay it off immediately https://s13.postimg.org/eyuvdxfnr/IMG_4394.jpg
cracks me up how they describe it as 'Auto' what else would an electric car be?
Sounds pretty good for a brand new top of the range - especially if you are going to keep it for a good few years.
I have previously been offered 45% off list on this model via carwow

wow - carwow
22k considered a good deal for this!!?
There was an m sport one series bmw on here last week for a touch under 25! I know they are different types of car for different people and all but come on, they are the same price range! Nissan leaf vs BMW M140. I can guess what type of person you are if you choose the leaf. And "sensible" is not the word I am thinking.

Horrendous depreciation means you would be crazy to buy even with 60% off list.

Yes. VED is zero.

Seems to cheaper elsewhere such as here offering it for £17,813



​good find put it up as a deal mate maybe we can find one under 10k by the end of the year.
Can someone quote projected values of this car after:
1 year
2 years
3 years

​they have just took that offer off aswell I tried click it it's not available anymore odd.
It's a good deal and I'm not knocking it, but I've just calculated that it would take me 38 years to break even with the fuel savings against my current car.

​make it 30 years u will have to spend a few pennies if u want keep the same car for next 38 years. same reason I'm not going for it usually buy a car around 1-1.5k keep it 5-6 years with about 400-500 spent over that time keeping it on the road excluding the tax ins fuel etc. and get rid of it for about 500-750 so not worth it for me either.
General consensus from auto press indicates that depreciation could be up to 2/3rds in first 2 years. Better off with pcp deal like the 199/down + 199 month for 24 months that Nissan are offering this month imho.
Just checked auto trader for a 2015 tekna and loads available from around 11k. Not sure what list price was back in 2015 but if it was anywhere near 30k then previous comment is probably not that far off.

As the car is older, battery range may be lower. Technology will advance and ranges increases. This means the cars become effectively worthless. Also when battery warranty expires, the value is low. Buying a new car may not save money unless you travel in London.

Always compare the real buy price for depreciation and not the fake RRP.

The warranty on the 30KW battery is 8 years, so lots of warranty, it is the tech that is killing the second hand market as it is fast moving, right now the consensus is don't buy a 24KW one as it is already discontinued in USA for example, so we are now on 30KW, 40/50KW expected next year with a refreshed look.... so in the space of 2 years a 24KW one could become almost obsolete, now it does not mean it wont have any intrinsic value, as someone who just wants a pot around car would take it, but the value will plumet badly...

My advice is until the tech stabilizes, or you can afford a Tesla...PCP is the way to go... last night I was looking at a 2014 model Teckna 6.6KW for sale at £10.5k, I ran that through a value my car check, and at PX it was £8500, so just by driving off the forecourt you are down 2k, keep the car 2 years, the PX value would likely be in the 6K range, so that would be 4.5K lost.... same as PCP, except you get a rand new car with no associated costs

You are comparing a "to hell with the environment" primary car to an environmently friendly second car.

From that statement I know what kinda person you are.
This car is poorly designed for passengers at the back. They cannot put their legs under the front seats, so leg room is limited. 3 people at the back is a real struggle. I cannot understand why they didn't make the car higher so seats could be raised, providing a decent amount of leg room. The car has cameras but no parking sensors. Many people think parking sensors are a must and a camera is of additional benefit. Given the chance of one only, I would select parking sensors.

Well as you can see from autotrader you can pick up a 15plate acenta for £10k. A 6 year old (no drivetrain warranty) 11plate still go for £6k. So £4k depreciation in 4 years.

That makes the sensible thing to do is buy a 2 year old car and keep hold of it. With the fuel savings and reduced service costs that almost removes any depreciation.

Buy a 30kw leaf next year at 2 years old at an estimated £11k keep it for 6 warranted years and would expect it to be worth £5k. That's some cheap motoring.

Would you qualify for a free home charger? If no this could well be almost 1 year fuel saving wiped out.
Answer... No unless you buy the car from Nissan dealers (at dealer prices).

Are charging units standardised for all manufacturers?
Imagine changing cars every few years from different manufacturers. You may end up with multiple charging points at home.
The technology should be there to charge others to use your charging unit via card!

As long as you buy the car from a Nissan dealer you can get a podpoint charger on new or used cars. Or ChargedEV will do a tethered 32a one using code 'NEWREG' for for £149.

Getting an adapter for home charging should not be an issue if you change standards. Just as CHAdeMO and CCS for DC fast charging.
As for letting people use your charger it already happens in Norway. People don't charge for it. It's more of a emergency use case where you can pop by and charge for 30-mins to and hour just so they can get to where they need to be. The cost to the home owner is only a few NOK and it's a nice thing to do.

Let's see if £11k buys a 2 year old model next year. 8 year or 100k battery warranty is good.
You can throw the car away at the end!

Any idea of repairs out of warranty for owners? Dealers need to make money from timed in repairs!

But on the motorway service stations charging is £6 for 30 mins. That is steep and will become standard.
Electricity cannot be free forever.

They should redesign as a car that is higher for more leg room at the back and overall space and old people like me, so it is easier to get in and out of the car!

I can't see a reason why they won't be around the £11k mark.
As for throwing it away at 8 years and 100k if you have a good battery and it's been looked after (keeping between 20%-80%) then it may have 80% left and at worst 50%. It's still a usable car.

As for repairs there are not a great deal of issues and not expensive ones. Most of the high mileage early cars (USA data) the car seem to be getting tatty (trim falling off, worn seats) before they die. The series 2 (2013-) seem better put together.

Leg room.... Well insist you drive or sit in the front!
Many people have mentioned this. It may well be the 2018 has more leg/foot room.
Just imagine what will happen when the 2018 Leaf is released with a 60kw battery and 200+ mile range.
The prices of the 24kw may plummet. When cars hit 250-300 miles the EV market will be a game changer.
Subsidies will disappear! Anything less than a 200 mile range will seem outdated. Bolt, Tesla 3 etc....

​Is that buying an equivalent new car or are you planning on keeping your current car till 2055?
Carwow is excellent .... takes all the hassle out of the haggle .... you're pretty much near rock bottom when you start negotiation and then just stand your ground to get best deal. Got 23% off a Merc today ... well happy !
