    Hi all,

    I’m toying with the idea of purchasing a Zoe. While looking around, I saw that the battery lease options for (say) 6000 miles per year comes in at £69/month. If my arithmetic is correct, this means that (if I do drive 6000 miles a year), I’ll be paying 13.8p/mile (excluding electricity or any other costs), which doesn’t seem very competitive to say a Clio which comes in at under 10p/mile for petrol.

    I guess one solution would be to go for the i- version of the car, but given the speed at which battery technology is progressing, how likely am I to recoup the extra costs? Would going for PCP (with the intention of getting a Model 3 when it reaches our shores) change the equation?

    (I’m sure that this thread has been done to death already, but I couldn’t find it with a quick browse of the forum).

    All suggestions welcome…



    I don’t count battery lease as ‘fuel cost’ as it’s not.
    Add up how much you would pay over say 5 years for lease and compare with the extra paid for battery included.
    Also battery lease covers more in respect of repair and breakdown cover than battery included.



    Buying a ZE40 battery seems safe in terms of being left behind. But in terms of the battery lease, remember that it includes a breakdown service, so you can take that off the cost.



    They will do battery rental as at just below £50/ month for 4.5k miles.
