My quote for a 65 plate zoe with 22kwh and Jan 2016 registration is £3500.

Will need to ponder whether it's worth it.

Worth seeing what your car is worth, trade in will be about £4k with battery hire. Doubt it'll be worth £7500 with battery owned.

I got a trade in offer of 5300 a few weeks ago on a similar age car. Granted, they might have bartered a bit on seeing it.

Its £6160 reducing by 10% each year, the 1st year starting on the 1st day of 13th month of manufacture.

Example: car registered on 15th Jan 2015,
It reduces by 10% to £5544 on the 1st Feb 2016
1st Feb 2017 it reduces another 10% to £4989.60
Where did you get the £6160 figure from?
What will happen in after the 10th year? 63 plates only have 3 more years to go for 10th anniversary

@Ionel the value falls by 10% p.a. of the current value, not 10% of the original value, so at 10 years will be about 35% of original price, and the price will never fall to zero.

There seems to be a ‘minimum value’, nobody has yet had a quote lower than £2750 and that seems to be the rate for 15 plates and older.

None of the quotes stated above doesn't add up... calculated either way

Directly to a Renault garage? Or do you have very low mileage for age?

Trade buy with Drive Green. Almost 50k miles.
Having had a quick look that appears about right, values have gone up about £1k since I traded my car in March. To be expected I guess as there is delays in getting the new Zoe and the price is so much higher.

My thoughts on buying the battery out are that it will allow me to go for an independent sale, where I stand to (I think) make a bit more money given the 65 plate car only has 14,500mi and a valid extended warranty.

If I go on Autotrader I see battery lease Zoes like mine selling for 5-7k, and battery-owned ones selling for 9-11k. That seems like it would make the difference.

In early May I was given a battery buyout price of £3,500 for a March 2016 22kwh and £5,500 for a December 2017 ZE40. Rental is £49 and £59 a month, so we've decided it's not worth it at the moment. It's a shame as I was all for buying out and thinking I'll definitely go for it once it became available. I just didn't imagine it would be that much.
