A 6.6kw charger is very handy, the problem is finding a car specced with it. I would definitely recommend specing it if I was buying new.

But in my case I am traveling 50 miles per day on my commute. It is very rare that I have to travel 30+ miles when I get home. If there is a need I will give my car a quick rapid charge to 80% and plug in when I get home ready for later on.

Basically if your doing more than 80 miles a day with the ability to carry out destination charges through the day I would recommend searching for a 6.6kw. If not buy the 3.3kw tekna. Sounds like a bargain.

Nissan missed a trick on the gen 2 they really should have made 6.6kw a standard.

No brainer then. £15k is a very good price for that tekna. Also due to you charging all day 3.3kw will do just fine.

You will save a hell of alot of money by not filling up with petrol.

Previously I was spending near the £200 a month mark on a 50mpg diesel.

Now I'm spending £40ish a month on electric. Debating if I should switch to economy 7 tariff...

I understood that as VAT on a secondhand car is on the seller's profit (selling minus buying price) companies cannot claim it back as that would make the seller's profit public. Well that is how the VAT inspector explained it to me when I tried to claim. Of course being the selling dealer is different.
