Default new car

i have to admit i have just put a deposit on a new car (well used but new to me) and its not a pug although i will be keeping one of my 307's for long runs, the car i am getting is a nissan leaf, i got 2 years free service, first mot, mats and diamond bright thrown in all for 13000 on a 13 plate with 12k on clock, i loved the test drive that much that i put a deposit down right there and then and they have not even received the car yet

How's things work with the batteries as I've heard you lease them?

Did you like the handling or was it the lack of sound and how smooth the drive was? I've always been intrigued by electric cars.

the acceleration was amazing its really smooth and there is no clutch, the handling was pretty good as well, and the fact fuel is 10 a year (that's for a card to charge for free and motorway services) tax is free and soon in leeds they are going to be charging 10 to drive into the city centre unless your car meets the emissions no emissions on electric

Charged to enter Leeds? Should be paying us to visit them! If this is the case I'll be avoiding Leeds from now on.

Interesting choice. Why did you decide on an electric car?

Does it charge from the mains at home? Is it a hybrid - so you can run on petrol when the batteries run out of charge?

In the long term - I think the way forward is hydrogen fuelled cars - I believe Toyota are introducing such cars next year.

Some of the Taxi's around here are using the Prius the drivers are well impressed for local journey's But as Trustme said he is keeping a 307 for longer journeys

But do keep us updated how the All electric pans out. for someone like myself Apart from Initial outlay being Massive it could be a good option

And a lot of City centres will soon be Imposing a charge remember London was a test for it

I chose electric because no tax no problems with entering upcoming green zones free to charge at a number of charge points so save on fuel tax and green zones also they accelerate like f**k, no its not hybrid its full electric, cheaper servicing too
