Well folks that’s the end of my EV driving experience as the Nissan Leaf went back to finance house last week. I feel like I’ve lost a friend as the car was exactly what I needed, reliable, quiet, clean and always ready to go. I’m now back driving my 2000 TT which is another reliable little car. We now have a diesel Evoque plus the petrol TT. I ended the PCP a couple of months early as I realised I had been ‘had’ on the mileage I thought it was 10,000 per annum but I re-read the paperwork and realised the salesman had reduced the annual mileage to just 7000 to fit in with the monthly payments. My fault I should have read and re-read everything at the time. So I ran out of mileage which left the Leaf in my garage doing nothing for a couple of months. I’m now waiting for RCI finance to sting me for the excess mileage so all in all financially not a great idea to go electric. If you are thinking about an all electric vehicle I would urge you to wait at least a year as that’s when we can expect a real world 250 mile motor to arrive in Great Britain. 250 miles will allow most folk to charge at home & work (maybe) without having to use the very expensive Ecotricity fast chargers as charging from home / work is the only way to make financial sense of owning an EV. If anyone wants to have a chat about going electric before getting an EV please drop me a line !.
