I’ve got Zoe, 65 Reg. Plate on pcp Which ends in spring. Not sure about trim but It has reversing camera, and rear parking sensors, battery is in lease.

Mileage is 22k now, will be about 26-27k when pcp period ends.

Does anyone know realistic part exchange value I can expect if want to change it to a new Zoe ?

AutoTrader will give you a private sale and part exchange value, just enter your registration and mileage.

What was the final valuation on your pcp? I fear you might find its higher than the trade in value.

Certainly worth asking a dealer for a quote to move to a ZE50. Depending on your PCP you may have £1000 equity which would be a deposit on a new PCP. They tend to quote 4 year PCP now to get price lower, but cost will be over £300 a month depending on mileage, trim, CCS option, etc. Obviously no battery rental to pay.

Alternatively, prices on used Zoe have dropped a lot since June so now is a good time to buy a used (battery rental) ZE40, especially as Renault dealers are offering £500 PCP contribution.

Thanks, autotrader quotes around 6,5k which is way above my final payment, but i wasn’t sure if autotrader valuation takes into account battery rental aspect of it.

Thank for feedback, guys.
I will definitely discuss options with the dealer, but wanted to know realistic value beforehand.

Was thinking there must be many people now changing their first gen. Zoe

I don't think it does I'm afraid.

The best deal you are likely to get is from of the specialist EV dealers who advertise on here. Have a chat to them.

I was looking at PCP but couldn’t justify over £300 per month.
Instead we’ve signed a lease for £240/month for a ZE50 GT Line Rapid Charge.
Yes, I know we will never own the car but every PCP we’ve ever had has only broke even at the end of the term.

I think it does, it's reflected in the low value of the Zoe generally. Autotrader was about £250 off the value of my Zoe at trade in.

But then I had it for a couple of years and sold it for more than I bought it for. You may well be very surprised what people offer for good condition EV's atm.

I have a 66 plate, 14-15k miles, webuyanycar and autotrader came up with approx £6,600, that's AT for part exchange, private sell was under £8k.

I am looking to get a Kona and asked 2 Hyundai dealers for part exchange. One couldn't get the reg in his system and had a hard time getting a valuation for it, eventually had two Renault dealers bid £5k after I pay my remaining £2.7k finance and the battery outstanding amount (I thought I pay for the battery while I have the car and then transfer it to the new owner?).
Another Hyundai dealer asked me a lot more questions about my Zoe and came up with a valuation of £7k, which is more than what I paid for it so far.

For battery lease transfers there are two different forms to complete, one for private sale and one for transfer to a dealer. You should not pass the vehicle to the new owner or dealer until RCI confirm transfer of the lease has been completed. If you release the vehicle before that confirmation you are still responsible, others in the past have fallen into that trap to their cost.

Thanks for that! In that case, as soon as I have an exchange date set I will get the forms through to RCI.

Someone else recently asked about the part-ex value of the lease battery version. Take the Autotrader part-ex value and deduct the lease battery buyout cost from that figure. I suspect the £7k figure is before that deduction, giving £4.3k as the actual part-ex value. If they do go through with the 7k figure that would be great, and as there are no discounts on new EV's they can't artificially hide the difference in a cash purchase. It may be different if with PCP - post the deal, and Im sure others will be able to offer analysis.

Their quote was for a deposit of 7k minus finance left, we have since discussed the battery lease transfer so they are aware of the lease. Fingers crossed nothing changes until next Saturday!

For benefit of others, be aware that WBAC do not buy Zoe with battery lease. Their system has a glitch and always values as battery owned.

The AT valuation tool is usually OK but Zoe values have dropped recently so actual trade in offers may be lower than shown.

Looks like AT have adjusted values since I last checked. Here is an example of a valuation of a 66 plate Zoe battery lease with low mileage. A £7K trade in is a good offer.

Indeed, AT quote was £5500 px, 6500 private sale
One of the dealers offered £5000 less settlement figure from LCI, which leaves me with some equity for p/x.

cheers
