Heat!
Range is bit low. Good deal otherwise.
17 kw battery should give you about 60 miles range at a total fuel cost of just 85p


A great local / commuter car.
Brace yourselves: misinformed people are coming
Cracking car for some people. Low range will make it impractical for others. But if you do a short commute, can charge at home on a low overnight tariff, and are unlikely to do longer runs then it is a good proposition. Have some heat

Just noticed the 5k a year mileage allowance. Hopefully that can be increased for not too much more.
Gateway2lease has the better specced pulse premium version for £5790 over 3 years
Road fund licence for the duration of your contract. Haha
So you've got a car that'll cost you £5746 for 3 years that you can only do 5k miles PA in that you could realistically buy for £18k new and do as many miles as you like. If it ticks all your boxes (low effective range is accepted), I think it's a far better buy than a lease under the terms offered if that battery holds out reasonably well - bearing in mind the fuel savings you could make if you do 8-10k miles PA.

Why? I'd rather have my £18k earning 6% each year in an s&s isa. After 3 years compounded that's £3438, compared to buying the lease has then cost me £2300 over 3 years in effect, cheaper than some iPhone contracts.

If You've got a 6% ISA then you're courting some risk of actually losing money - your ISA is no sure thing, especially given the year we're having right now. If you are doing a decent mileage in your bought car, you'll be paying apparently 1.5p per mile in electricity vs 12p a mile in a 40mpg petrol. Doing 10k miles (an extra 5k miles over the lease allowance), you could be making £1575 in fuel savings. Also if you buy the car and start saving the equivalent of the lease cost and invest in the same ISA you'll get almost £400 - so there's not a lot in it and you get to keep the car for as long as you want. If the residuals are great, you could be better off.
They got desperate for selling points. They mentioned matt chrome interior door handles twice.
They make a point of telling you, as Winter approaches, that you will have to replace the tyres almost as soon as you get it because they are Summer tyres.
And, wait for it,..."Manual headlamp range adjustment"

Risk is low, I've spread investments in various sectors, oil down massively, tech up massively, so even with an apocalyptic 2020 I'm currently up 10% this year, mainly thanks to Tesla and AMD. Sticking in a 1% cash ISA is a sure fire way to lose money when inflation is higher than that.

Why would you plan on doing 10k miles in a car with an 80 mile range?! This is for school runs,.going 10-15 miles to the office and back, and then charge overnight

It is suprising how the mileage actually clocks up to be fair ...
Travelling 15 miles to the office and 15 miles back would amount to over 7k , leaving 55/60 miles available for each weekend and an average of around 180/200 miles a week for the 5/6 week you are off , bringing the total to around 10k.
Ideal kind of mileage / usage to get the most out of the fuel savings I would have thought, just get into the habit of plugging in each night (possibly every other during the summer months)
That said , it is a crap car so it would not be for me, regardless of the savings.

You're not kidding. It says it has hill start assist - it's an electric car for goodness sake. It can't have a manual gearbox so it can't roll backwards! It's not a feature they've added.
Here we go again.

The 5k thing

On most leases you will pay a double cost of the deal mileage penalty, so if you are borderline and say do 6k instead of 5k you will actually save money getting the 5k offer over 8k and paying a penalty, so it looks like on this cost per mile is 5p there about so penalty will be 10p (though on my offer for a like car it was 7p but lets go with the higher amount)

So if you did 6k in a year that would be extra 1000 x 10p = £100 + Twelve months lease (154.62 *12) = £1954
If you had taken the 8k offer that would be a straight (167.70 * 12) = 2012

It seems to be something that is always missed or over complicated on lease deals - excessive mileage is not really all that bad unless there are additional clauses, when you consider the actual true impact - if you got this 5k allowance car and you did 10k that would be £500 extra to pay for that year so rule of half its really an extra £250 (whilst not a valid argument for this electric car a lot of people probably wouldn't drive extra distance to save 5p on petrol)

Whilst we wait for the you can buy a car for £500 crew

If you buy the car for £18k the depreciation would be based on auto trader price for a 3 year old car is 12.5k so you would of lost 5.5k plus 'forecourt tax' likely you'd get 11.5k in any net deal so net cost to you £6500. A lease for 10k on this one (you can change the mileage on a lease!) is 176.42 *36 = 6351 so there isn't anything in it and you can put it in a normal savings account and get 1% with no risk so to save working out reducing scale interest lets base it on 15k so £500 in savings not buying so in this example you'd be 750 down if you purchased it.

As a FYI yes I have taken one of these deals and its a second car, we had one of the early Zoe's which we actually used for a main car with the same range there abouts and for the 4 times we needed to go distance we just hired a ice

So for me as Im getting one yes its a great car for the price when you factor in the saving for me of about £50 pm in petrol Im getting the car for under £90 a month.

The only thing missing from this lease bingo card is P11d.
Personal Lease init P11D is a bit irrelevant

I need one number on one and two on another.... fingers crossed
Can someone tell why called smart ????
The name Smart derives from the cooperation of the Swiss company Swatch with Mercedes-Benz: "Swatch Mercedes ART". In its branding, the company lowercases its logotype and the logo incorporating a "c" and an arrow for "compact" and "forward thinking" respectively.

A 3 year stock/share ISA that matured in April would have lost 27% over the term.
