OH had a Jazz before this car (Citroen Picasso), only because of our growing kids we needed something a bit bigger.
Mistake!! What a shed of a car! So glad she's able to get the PHEV.
As for the Nissan Leaf, there's two people who have horses at our farm and they rave about them.
They've got them both on a lease kind of scheme. OK, you're paying out constantly and don't have a car at the end, but you have NOTHING to worry about during owning...
Tyres, NO tax - zero emmisions, maintenance of any kind, even down to changing a bulb...
And no fuel. It cost (I think) only about £1.70 / £3 depending on your tariff to charge them. For that you get around 160 miles...
Factor all this into 'buying a car', and the costs are huge.
So if you an afford that, have a look...
One of them also said, if you're going to buy a Leaf...
You buy the car but LEASE the batteries...
Damned if I do...
Damned if I don't!!!!
