Glad the OP got a positive outcome. Where does that leave everyone when the battery lease ends but the finance doesn’t?
I’m on the £87 lease. I was expecting to do 12,000 a year but due to horrendous roadworks, I have been working from home a lot so I’m nowhere near that now. My lease ends in around 8 months but will I be forced to take up another expensive one for the further year until my finance ends?
I probably won’t get another Zoe purely because of the issues with the lease. It seemed like a good idea at the time!
Our Zoe PCP expires in May 2018 and we are already looking at a follow on EV, or failing that a plug-in hybrid with enough electric range to cover our regular daily use. What’s putting me off another Zoe isn’t range or even reliability, but the battery lease agreement. (Buying the i-Zoe doesn’t make financial sense for us as low mileage users – other makes and models are better value.)
Have there been any developments since the above on June 17th 2016?
I’ve been advised to initiate return of the vehicle and battery in the new year, i.e. January 2018, but not given any clear guidance as to what to do or what to expect.
