Next zoe offer.
Drivethedeal offer is back on their website.
Time to sort the finance and order the car.

How does that deal work, why its so complicated?
Heave you ever heard about pcp, ch, and other wonderfull forms of buying car?
If not let me explain (how I understand pcp deal).
1. Find a car that suits you (ofcourse Renault Zoe)
2. Find someone who is offering pcp deal (ofcourse drivethedeal)
3. Request Finance quote.
4. Wait a day, maybe two.
5. Answer the phone call.
6. Listen :.... blabla bla £24 per month plus battery rental blblbla for 24 months blablabla limit 7500mile per year blablablabla .... we need your card number then .....
7. Scratch your head and wonder why its so cheap, how can they do it.
You will be paying £104 every month for next 2 years. After that you can hand the keys back and walk away all pay and keep the car (most likelly you will walk away and take another deal like that).
2 years of issue free motoring, no road tax, no mot, no worries about something going wrong (as the car has warranty), cheap insurance, free wall charger, free (in some cases) charge points in some locations.
Again scratch your head and think will it actually save you money.
I`m prety sure that the answer is Yes.

The best in that deal is that you are able to calculate how much in 2 years time you will spend on the agreed miles limit.

Battery hire has it good sides and bad.
Yes you have to pay every month, but if something goes wrong then its sorted by renault.
I`m sure that in the future e will se insurance companies taking this under their wings.
There is an option to buy the car with batteries but its not economical when compared to that deal (in my opinion).

Battery lease cost at the moment as to my knowledge is the same all over the dealers offering that car, but if i`m wrong correct me please.

What happens to the battery rental when you've paid the 24/36 months and want to keep the car?

They called me today, £0 deposit comes out at £24.00 per month with final baloon of £8171 over 24 months plus battery rental of 80 pounds per month. Based on 7500 miles per year. This on a solid white dynamique nav.

Think of it as replacing your petrol costs, I pay more in petrol than £70 a month so this would be saving me on fuel costs if I wanted it.

And thats a good deal

It's a brilliant deal (though I'm biased as I've ordered one on this basis)! You might want to put that in the title and description if you've got time (as its a lot better than the DSG deal that went very hot and £104 per month for 2 years plus £99 up front fee is more likely option than buying outright for vast majority of people).

You still have to pay for renting the batteries

Don't think it's me but could be as it's been a tiring Saturday. But this surely has to be up for the plain English award. So the price includes the deposit, but then it really only works out as the PCP at this price, but then it says minimum deposit surely that's the £4,600.

The quoted prices include a £4,660 finance deposit contribution which is conditional upon you taking out finance arranged by the dealer.

Renault are offering the following finance plans:

PCP finance at 3.9% APR Representative over a period of up to 36 months with no minimum deposit.
Hire Purchase finance at 0% APR Representative over a period of up to 48 months with 40% minimum deposit. However you will lose £3,660 of the quoted discount taking this option.
If you do not wish to take any of the above finance deals, then you will need to add £3,810 to the discounted price quoted.

Renault Zoe offers include the UK government’s plug-in car grant (PiCG) of £5,000, but excludes mandatory battery hire available from £70.00 per month on a 36 month or £80.00 per month on a 24 month contract both prices based on 7,500 miles per year. Further details on request.

still seems to work out a lot to me, £70 for 650 miles a month works out at the equivalent of about 4500, add about another £20 for electric (assuming you pay for it) and it is the same cost as getting about 38 mpg which is pretty poor for a car the size of a zoe.

Working the other way, the average new hatchback is going to go through about £60/m of fuel doing the same mileage.

TBH the battery lease is a major hurdle with the Zoe. It's just really clumsily implemented. RCI need to get their act together. Price isn't a major issue (though I can't see them selling many cars for cash with the current prices), but the variance in the prices and the lease terms are. The rate and the terms need to be set and kept to. Minimum terms also need consigning to the dustbin. They serve no purpose other than to annoy customers.

Sounds like the ideal lease: something for nothing.

That's not really how it works is it, especially as you get a new car for £25 per month

the battery.

Anyone any idea on the wait period? Are we talking days? Weeks? Or months before actually receiving the car?

Signed the contract yesterday but just went to Renault dealer and asked about the offer. Paid £79 deposit with 7.5k miles option. With an extra security pack (alarm) and the whole insurance package it will be around £230 pm but I don't have to worried about a single scratch.

If they don't have a ready car somewhere then it takes around 6 weeks. If they do then maybe 2-3 weeks. (talking about Renault dealers)

So can Renault offer anywhere near this deal or does it have to be through the middle man?

It's a Renault dealer offering this deal but you have to go through drivethedeal so they preserve their anonymity (as they're offering well below market pricing). It's the dealer that takes your deposit and they contact you within a day to confirm everything. I was told delivery in September as that's when the next batch of cars is due (I hear other dealers are saying the same as there's very few left in UK stock). Annoying wait but at least it leaves enough time to get the home charger fitted.

Real world range on a full battery is 30-35 miles.

Yes when towing 3.5ton trailer fully loaded.
You need to specify in what circumstances you can achieve 35miles on full charge ;).



Edited by: "dzordzmakowiec" 7th Jun 2015

Real world range is around 80, but will drop to 60 in the colder months when you're having to use the heater.

That's with the old motor. This is the newer motor and is supposed to have a 10% longer range.

The trade off with this newer motor is that it cannot "rapid charge" (charge 80% in 30 mins at fast charge points) instead it will take nearer an hour to reach the same charge. On regular charging the difference in time isn't so drastic.

I get two options at the bottom of page to pick

Dynamique Nav Rapid Charge 5dr Auto

Dynamique Nav 5dr Auto

Does it matter which one I pick. I assume the Rapid Charge will be useful.

Rapid Charger is the old model. Slightly smaller range, but you can charge to 80% in 30 mins at rapid charge stations (mostly at motorway services).

The other one is the new model - new motor, slightly better range, but takes an hour to hit 80% when plugged in to a rapid charge station.

Has anyone had a phone call with a quote yet?

I only applied yesterday.

Edit

Just had a call. The figures were exactly as the OP stated. Only hidden cost is a £99 acceptance fee included in the first payment.

£500 deposit paid over the phone (which is refunded when car arrives) and am told a Renault dealer will be in touch in a few days times.

Only negatives... Car won't be here until October at the earliest, and the dealer will be over 100 miles away, and doesn't include delivery. I may have a word with the dealer and see if they will deliver for small cost.
