We're thinking of selling our Zoe as I've seen some cracking deals on lease rates on E-Niros so I'm thinking we pay off the PCP and get a bigger and longer range EV. She's done 4,000 miles, registered and bought in 2019, it's the Dynamique Nav ZE40 version in purple and we bought the battery. We're looking for £18,000, does that look right?

I p/x'd my 2018 R40 with battery rental in March for £11k. Not sure if that will help, but may give you a starting position. You should get a better deal as battery owned is pretty rare.

Can I ask, how much did the batteries cost and what was your rental contract?

Thanks, we pay an extra £30 per month on the PCP for the bought battery versus the rental option

Probably a bit high. There are main dealers selling similar around that price. Purple is also a bit marmite....

No harm in trying at that price. I would get trade in prices from some EV dealers on here as well and use that as a base to price it though.

Why not trade it in? Solves the problem in one go.

We're still in the PCP contract so we need to pay that off

You don't if you sell the car to a garage.

They will offer you a price, and then settle the finance on your behalf. Any surplus goes to you, or if there is a shortfall then you will need to settle that.
@Jim Lee

Whatever way you go, just check your contract re: the battery. Make sure you do everything to comply with RCI rules. It can be quite a long and painful journey if you don't follow the contract to the letter. I've just had a long and painful 5 months during Covid because I trusted a car salesman to keep his word.

I sold my ze22 with battery lease to weareev.com last November... had a battery lease and they took over the lease a day or so before they picked up the car from my home on a flatbed. Try them for an offer.

I have just bought a 2019 dynamique nav ze40 in metallic blue with its own battery, 4kmiles on the clock from a Renault dealer. I paid £17.7 cash for it.
Battery owned cars seem to be worth less than the combination of the leased value and the lease conversion cost. Leased batteries seem more attractive to some people as they have more guarantees and less risk in return for the battery lease payments.
Private sale should get more than a trade-in but people happily pay more to get the comfort of buying from a dealer.
As a matter of interest, how much will the 4k miles have cost you if you buy out of the PCP at this point?

Sorry, I haven’t gone over 4k miles, it's done 4k in total, the contract is for 6k miles a year so we're well within. Interesting that price you paid, looks like we might be aiming a bit high. Had a test drive in the Niro today, I'm sold on that now!

So you’ve got a 2019 i version on a 6k mile PCP? How long have you got left? Are you just comparing your PCP monthly repayment with an e-Niro lease payment. I’m not an expert and stand to be corrected but remember with a lease you will never own the vehicle, whereas with a PCP you could be building up some equity. You’d need to compare TCO rather than just monthlies.

As others have said, it may be easier to trade in or sell to an EV specialist who would settle outstanding finance with RCI. Depending on the deposit you paid, you may find you are in negative equity at this early point in a PCP.

You may find a buyer on AT and being battery owned it will be less hassle to sell privately, but many buyers want to trade in, finance, etc. especially at that price level. Trying to sell on here is a zero cost option and there may be someone looking for a cash purchase, but they often expect a bargain ;)
