Isn't it just another way of giving the initial grant that you got IG, that they didn't?
Yes, but £2K bigger Nissan deposit contribution £5K versus Employee? discount £7K if I have got it right. Me jealous?, no, not at all...
The I read it, which might be wrong is... you got a £5k dealer contribution and they got £950. Then they got £7k which includes the £4500 govt grant, which you got £4500, so you got £9500 and they £7950. I think...it was hard to follow the posts over a few pages.
On top of the £7k SourKraut got £1200 deposit contribution and I got £950. Not sure why we both got different amounts though.
No, the £7k employee discount does not include the government grant.
£950 deposit contribution
£7000 (ish) employee discount
£4500 government grant
Total discount: £12,450.
Wow, that is a great deal. So what did the car end up costing new and what is the guaranteed value at the end (i.e. balloon payment)?
From reading on the speakEV forums, it looks like the prices are all over the place dealer to dealer. There are various discounts that some do that others dont in a bid to get current stock "sold" before the new model comes.
First I felt bad, then I felt good and now I feel worse so UR actually got ~£3K more off than we did
We're past the cool off period and knowing my luck they'd charge us £3000.05 to cancel
Full price was £32,485.00.
After all discounts and part exchange (£1708.61) final cost ending up as £18,353.80.
So total savings of £14,131.20.
The balloon payment was £13,000 from memory.
I'd be interested to see your figures SourKraut
There were better deals around 2 years ago before any mention of a new model
I take it you were offered a free home charger installation, so a Pod Point charger is not required? Looking at PodPoint website can't quite fathom how you are able to access their chargers?
I thought the free home charger was a pod point?
I have no idea. If so, once installed do you then just register with them and then have access to their public chargers? IronGiant, you have a Leaf I assume, did you get a home charger?
Not sure, we're looking into it and whether we can get one installed (free) before we get the Leaf.
I assumed you already had one when you said what deal you got. Are you just waiting for delivery?
I've registered with PodPoint and it gives you the option to add credit to your account. I'm guessing some of their chargers you pay but some may be free.
No wonder they have to discount them so much.
Yes, delivery date 30/5/17 hopefully. Salesman suggested it might be earlier but I'm not holding my breath.
We signed on the dotted line on 23rd April...
I only registered with podpoint just incase I needed it for the test weekend, but once we put a confirmed order in to buy the car, Pod Point emailed me reasonably quickly with details of the installation and OLEV grant application documents - (I applied for the 7kW charger)
The application was all very quick and smooth, it's been fitted on 26th May
Edit: Of course, I'm still going to apply for RFID cards with other networks, to use whilst I'm out and about. Best to be covered for all eventualities
Putting in our application today, also for a 7kW Mrs IG filled the forms in online but abandoned it when asked for the Car Reg which we didn't know. Pod Point rang her this morning and sorted it all out.
I found Pod Point to be very good, quick and efficient
I had my pod point installed yesterday. Guy was very efficient just like in Stuarts video. To access the POD POINTS that live in the wild at supermarkets etc you need their app or rfid card for old ones i think....i just downloaded the app POD POINT on app store. Then linked it to my account. Never used it yet..same with CYC, downloaded up but have not paid for rf id card...now need to work out about chargepiointgenie and Polar.....argh..the whole un-joined up nature of all this is fatiguing
@Gordon @ Convergent AV too right bud, its quite confusing with RFID cards or an app.
In a perfect world it should be that all the networks work together...
I did warn you guys about not to bother with public charging, if you have home charging it really isn't worth the time/bother with public charging posts
unfortunately i travel all over uk and beyond. i have to go to Brussels to do a projector demo and Lumagen installation in June....
Sure, but if your miles away from home then you need some type of charging point...just as @Gordon @ Convergent AV says.
Is it like diving where you plan to use no more than 1/3 of your tank getting there if you want to charge only at home?
Look forward to your trip report!
We've just changed energy supplier and they won't give me the Meter Point Admin Number POd Point need as the account is in my wife's name If I'd known I'd have talked in a high voice
EVs are not cheap cars to buy, and that price is for the top of the range Leaf Tekna.
