True cost of Fluence

Just been looking at what I signed up to when I got my Fluence.

Car cost me 8000 cash and I signed up to the 77 a month battery lease.

Thus considering that I expect the resale value of the Fluence to be zilch the car will have cost me 10772. Over 36 months that is 299.22 per month

Nissan are currently offering the Leaf Tekna (top of range spec) with the 30kwh battery for 2649 customer deposit and 279 over 37 months. That equates to 350 per month and I could have kept my 8000 in the bank.

Not sure I would do the Fluence again!! Yes the leaf is ugly in the extreme but the expected 2017 model looks a lot nicer.

I am an electric vehicle convert (as long as work situation stays the same with range) and just pondering what to replace my Fluence with when its warranty runs out and it requires a major repair of greater value than its worth

What skews your figures is the resale value. A Nissan or Renault dealer would offer you (currently) 4k, so changes the figures dramatically. Agree about the Leaf, nothing would tempt me to get one!
