Wow that is quite a lot you've saved, I'm assuming not all dealers would offer these incentives. I'm not keen on taking the finance from the dealers either. Which dealer did you buy your car from in the end?Hi Zed. I’m new to the leaf community, but having spent a month of so looking that sounds pricey for the mileage!
If it’s any use... We ended up frustrated at the costs of some around us, but noticed there were incentives offered that changed the net cost significantly.
We had no intention of taking out dealer finance, but it came with quite a few advantages!
We bought a 16 plate 30kWh Tekna with 6.6kw on board charger, white with 27k mikes at the start of November from Nissan. I can only describe our experience, but it was super easy and the car is was a very clean 3 year lease RCI car with only one owner (registered end of June 2016).
£13,000 advertised price. But take their finance and you get £800 deposit contribution + 2 free services (minor is £159 & major £209, so £370) & 2 years roadside assistance. Plus PodPoint knock another £300 off the home charger after the £500 OLEV grant when buying from specific dealers (Check which ones are affiliated)
We have to make 3 payments on the PCP, this will cost us around £150 in interest paid, then we’ll clear the finance in early 2020.
Net result is a cost of £11,700 without any haggling. It seems there are a lot of 3 year old ones out there (there must have been a great 3 year lease deal in spring 2016!!!)
Sorry for the long post, Hope it helps.
I do have an eye out on a 2016 Tekna 15k mileage, black in Cannock which is for £13000. I don't think they will drop anymore as it was advertised just over £13500 last week.
