RENAULT ZE BATTERY LEASING
We don't like it because its different we are so used to owning vehicles out right. A lot of people are put off by the cost of leasing the battery and want to know if and when they can buy it after the initial 2 or 3 year contract.
Buying your vehicles battery after its had years of hammer would be the worst time as it will only become more unreliable as time goes on, this is when you can get it replaced free of charge and you would probably get the latest battery with possibly more capacity / range.
“But but the vehicle is worthless with out owning it out right” I here you think. Well whilst its true the vehicle used price is less than it diesel equivalent – it didn't actually cost that much in the first place.
You purchased 1/2 a van for 1/2 the price of its diesel equivalent.
Over 3 years Its depreciated.
And its now worth . . . . . . . 1/2 the price of its diesel equivalent.
“But but the lease makes it really expensive”
Lease + Electricity
£41 + £20 = £61/month
No lease + Diesel
£0 + £79 = £79/month
STILL CHEAPER THAN BUYING FUEL AND YOU HAVE PROLONGED THE PLANET.
