RE: Renault offers "batteries included" option at last
Their website is the usual confused nonsense BUT it does have the updated prices including the battery. I did try to find the updates regarding the lower lease but I couldn't find the lease option now. Looks like the website is in a moment of flux whilst they update things. I'm sure the article gave details of the warranty, or was that on the Renault website? I can't remember.
The £25 pm lease for the zoe really is good value for those who like the lease backup. £77 always seemed ridiculous to me, £45 was better and £25 is bordering on peppercorn and much more like it. If they bring that pricing in for the Fluence then it'll be a bargain car. The article says it's just for the Zoe but with RCI being so confused you are likely to blag it.
And the £4,500 difference shows how crazy the £77 pm for the vehicles life was. If you were just to pay that for 5 years then fine, but opened endedness of it was just plain crazy to me.
UPDATE: This link explains the HIRE/PURCHASE options of the Zoe battery
At least we all have the OPTION to lease or buy the Renault ZEs and I think sales will now increase. Well done Renault.
