If you are looking for an electric car on a budget you may wish to check out the Renault Zoe as it is the most affordable. The price tag does have to be weighed up against the fact that you lease the battery from Renault; however, on the positive side if anything were to go wrong with the battery it is down to Renault to replace it.
If leasing isn't to your liking you do have an option of purchasing the battery, and even when choosing this option the Renault Zoe price tag remains competitive against such as the Nissan Leaf.
The Renault Zoe is reported to offer a range of 130 miles from a single charge; a more realistic figure is around 90 miles. Bear in mind that you may get less than this in cold weather. The Renault Zoe is offered with a fast charger to wall mount at home, along with roadside cover for four years. This includes being towed to the nearest charging point or your destination.
In our opinion the Expression entry level may be the best choice, offering alloy wheels, cruise control and a touch display infotainment system. At MotorLoansDirect we offer a range of attractive car financing solutions, including Car Loans, hire purchase and personal contract purchase deals.
