  1. Trading a Leased Battery Z0E

    Renault ZOE

    Brilliant video "Why Tesla Isn't broke ?" With clear comparisons to Apple, Ford etc [Hint: because of investment in innovations] This is aimed at non-accountants, like me, (but, I guess NOT shorters :-) ) and yes I do have 'Skin in the game' .... literally !

  12. PCP finance packages

    General Nissan EV Discussion
    I was wondering whether Nissan approved retailer has several finance options or they always go for RCI? I got two different APR quotes from two different retailers. Used one is 3.9% for a 3 years PCP but I got another quote for 6.9% for a new one. Big difference! Why is that?

  15. Leaf 30kw, finance or cash?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Ok, this is a bit embarrassing and I should know this. I've bought many cars in all my years but I've never, ever, bought any of them on any type of finance, preferring to just pay cash. After the usual 4 day test drive, I've decided to get a Tekna 30kw but I'm totally confused as to whether I...
