Some early EVs (Zoe in particular) are battery lease cars. The car is cheap but you then have to take on the battery lease which is ultimately likely more costly over the long term, though if you can buy out the lease or it ends soon that might be a bargain. If it's a Zoe 'i' model the battery is owned.Hi there, I am thinking about changing my 6.5year old Nissan Juke for a small ev. We’ve just purchased a new family car so I’m hoping not to spend much (less than 10k, 7k if possible). I’ve had a look through autotrader and they are mostly a few years old as you’d expect for this budget. I’m really wondering what I should look out for on an older ev? What bits go wrong? Is it the same as a ‘normal’ car where you want low mileage? I assume to battery isn’t as good as when new. What kind of %age would they loose?
it only needs to be a city run around so it doesn’t need to do loads of miles.
Any info or suggestions would be great.
Battery health is important.
A Leaf or a Zoe should be in your range and likely fit the bill pretty well.
