RE: Autotrader Pricing
I wondered about this... would I be tempted to take a Zoe if the price was right? Taking the vehicle cost out of the equation, the battery lease breakpoints appear almost identical, so the running costs will be the same, but for less luxury in a runabout tiddler of an EV. Yes, I know I went from a Twizy to a Fluence but I may find it difficult (if not impossible) to go down in size... and the Tesla - even if I could afford it - doesn't do it for me. Neither does the Leaf (they're SO common!).
Not only am I happy with my existing purchase, I'm content it was one of the best decisions I had made, and the back up I have had from Renault, whilst frustrating at times, has been fair and equitable. Hopefully they'll be around for the next 5 years or so at least, as another 3yr battery contract would seem sensible and provide a natural end to the commitment.
But I'd be sad to see it go.....
