So I have been down to see the Nissan electric van lovely, no loss of space.
As a company we own a mits phev bought and loved. Vans need to earn their money. We always look to lease but I was scratching my head. The sales guy mentioned 8000 miles a year which would not be enough. We are between 10000-12000. It would appear the electric is £4000 more than the diesel. That would seem to be a lot of fuel. I guess about 25000 miles worth. Ok we would save on car tax which would be nice. Cannot imagine wanting to go through trying to get another charge point.
Thoughts?

Have a look on Ebay, as new transit connects for under£11k outright. These seem an excellent deal

Well I am supposing that the battery lease comes with the van.
But if someone was expecting to buy this for £9k, i think it a bit wrong the advert does't mention the never ending monthly cost for the battery

Must have sold ? I can't see any electric kangoos on ebay......
yep, still there :)

I love the way there is no mention of the battery lease in the listing. A bit misleading!
if it troubles you that much you could report it to Ebay along with the 6816 ads for phones that fail to state that they are useless without a sim for which you will have to pay forever and ever. :)

I think it's different, buy a phone you expect to have to have a SIM and PAYG/contract. Buy a car and you don't expect to not own its battery.

I agree the sim is a known. Nobody except us sad buggers would know that there is a battery lease. Miselling? I think so.

Lol you are right I can see me getting a huge com-pen-say-shun off Renault in a few years. (Just got to make it look like I would spend nine grand on a vehicle without having done the slightest research first and never read a single review !!) :)

I saw it. If I were in the market for a second EV then this would be ideal.

At the moment my LEAF is my company car and had 0% BIK. The company director does not have a company car and uses her personal one. A van would be a useful and cost effective replacement (and also alleviate the "which car is going to the dump?" Argument)

This is where the battery lease comes into it's own. For a business you have less capital tied up and can write off all the monthly charges against tax.
But in a van they might charge you at "the dump" (or recycling centre to us greenies:)).
