£189 — New Renault Zoe Lease Price In UK

February 16th, 2014 by  

Confession: I love the Renault Zoe. It’s not an electric supercar or a Tesla, but it’s a great electric car for the common person. With Renault’s recent move to hack the lease price of the Zoe down a bit, it’s now even more accessible and competitive. Check out the details in this EV Obsession repost:

Renault Zoe UK Lease Price Drops To £189 (via EV Obsession)

The Renault Zoe, a top-selling electric car available across Europe, has just had its base lease price cut to £189 in the UK (with a £1,000 deposit). Additionally, “lower mileage users” can now lease the battery for as low as £45 per month—…

    The problem is, most people who want to be greenish like me are paying a lot less than this to run a petrol vehicle. I drive a 14 year old Nissan Micra. I bought it for £1,100 about 4 years ago. It costs me about £300 a year in repairs and servicing, about £150 in road tax, and about £1,000 in petrol, for the 6,000 or so miles that I drive each year.

  • “For example, not only does it cost only 2 pence per mile to run,”

    That is just plain and simply untrue. Battery lease adds another 4 cents or so per km (6 cents per mile) in running costs.

    The Zoe seems like it would make more sense where gas is so expensive. But do all plug-ins have to be tiny little hatchbacks? The Leaf, the Zoe, the Spark, the Prius, the Volt, etc… How about something with a little more sport, a little more style, that doesn’t break the bank like the i8? I would be all over an electrified Miata or Eclipse! Come on, automakers!

    • In most of Europe, where petroil is expensive, electricity is too.

      • J_JamesM

        Yes, but the two still aren’t even remotely comparable- unless you’re paying $5 per kilowatt-hour!

      “Tiny little hatchbacks” are very efficient for interior space and cargo room. It is time personal transportation is rejected as a status symbol and relegated to the rank of a tool.

        They are also uncomfortable on long journeys, loud, and impractical for workers, large families and people with physical disabilities. Choice is not a bad thing, even of it does produce the occasional Hummer.

        Besides, you’ll notice that the Miata is a small 2-seater and the Eclipse is a 2+2 (and the non-convertible versions have hatchbacks).
