"...A new offer to come: Renault ZOE used with 300 km of actual range
"Given the prices currently traded in the second-hand ZOEs in circulation in 2013 and / or with more than 50,000 km on the counter, some potential buyers have taken out their calculators to get a better idea of ??the acquisition cost Of a used ZOE + battery change.
"The number is then without appeal: for less than 12 k € (to which it is obviously necessary to add the cost of the monthly rental of the battery), it is now possible to drive in an EV with a real range of between 250 and 300 Kilometers. An offer that no other manufacturer is able to offer to date...."
Where it says "without appeal" .... something seems wrong with the translation, as the rest of the message seems to be the deal may be appealing to some.
In any event, this seems like a good deal to me. I would consider paying EUR 12k for a vehicle and an additional monthly battery lease fee for a new battery, especially if it could get me something on the order of 100-150 EPA miles per month.
Several things aren't clear to me about this article including what deals are actually offered and which ones might simply be the author of the article offering their opinion.
