Hi all,

After much consideration and research I'm getting close to the point of putting my money where my mouth is and splashing the cash for a new Leaf. Just my extended test drive to complete to assure myself (and Mrs CW4) that the Leaf is going to be a practical solution for us. Of this I have little doubt.

So, presuming all goes well I really need to know what I should be expecting to pay for my chosen model. I've been on one of the car quotes websites where the dealers send you their supposed best offers, but so far I am unimpressed.

I'm looking for a new Tekna with battery for outright purchase. Normally I wouldn't consider new, but as the 100% capital allowance is available and the benefit in kind is 0% for another year, it would seem to make sense to go new.

Best price so far is £24k, which seems excessive given that Garry got his for £17.5k in January:

Has the market changed that much in a few months?

Can anyone give me any feedback on current pricing?

Does geography play a role in finding the best deal?

All thoughts welcome.

I used 'Drive The Deal' to buy my PiP. They were thousands less than any other quote I obtained and the whole deal was simple and straightforward, absolutely no problems.

Thanks for the replies. Any more feedback from recent buyers would be welcome.

Prices do generally seem to be a bit higher at the moment compared to Feb/Mar. I'm guessing that around the end of the end of the sales quarter is likely to yield a significant increase in discounting, so I may have to wait a while.
