I got this "Electric September" PCP (24 months) offer on a brand new Nissan Leaf Tekna 30kWh with 6.6kW charger (10k miles per year).

My deposit: £4,000
Monthly payments: 24 x £249 (includes Gap insurance cca £9pcm)

Is this a good offer or can I get it cheaper somewhere else?

Many thanks!

Doesn't sound good to me, have you looked at lease only.. If you intend to return the car after 24 months then a lease deal is normally cheaper.. when I was looking I recall a 3 + 23 deal of around £275 for 12000 miles.. works out loads cheaper due to much smaller deposit :) oh and gap insurance can be had online for around £120..

So that's £4K + 24 * £249 = £10000 more or less, for two years motoring and nothing at the end of it.

Mmm, I'm inclined to say that's not a good deal. When you can buy a pre-reg for about £16K, maybe £18K to get the 6.6 charger. After 2 years and 20,000 miles I think you should be able to flog your pre-reg privately for more than £6000, probably £8000 ... so even stevens and no need to deal with RCI.

If you don't want brand new there are ex demo ones about as well. I bought an Acenta ex demo a year ago for £12k looks like I would get at least £10k now so that £10k over two years seems a lot. I also lease an I3 REX from fleetdrive at £275/month total about £8k over two years with deposit. If you are not in a hurry then a lot of bargains are about. At certain times of the year dealers are "incentivised" to shift stock so worth looking around.

Have you tried carwow? They may be able to match or better the deal... reckon you could get the deposit down a bit lower
Carwow is actually where I started looking and it was the best deal. I got much worse offers there from there (for example £500 deposit + 24 x £460).

I also found a Kia Soul deal at a great price, 3 + 23 at £250 month... Bargain.. But I went for the new i3 in the end, 3 + 23 at £265 & I'm getting around 140 miles to a charge so far :) Don't give up, if you put the effort in online there are great deals to be had, just have to keep at it till you find one ..

Who did you get the i3 from, if you don't mind me asking?

That's £415 a month when the deposit is accounted for!

You should be able to get GAP insurance a lot less than £216 as well.
