I've been keeping an eye on the used prices & they do seem to be coming down in price slowly, there seems to be lots of used leafs with "Flex" battery leases on them & they seem to sit around a long time on dealers lots, people don't seem to want the £80/$100 a month flex lease payments for the battery that go with the car. I'm still at odds whether to buy/lease/ or buy the car & lease the battery
, I'll be looking into buying a 2014 Gen II leaf & if funds are in better shape then a 2015.
After some thought I think I will be buying one outright in all reality.
Since retiring I have no commute to do & I drive less than 50/60 miles a week so it's a no brainer really about getting an EV, Yes like you say petrol is still expensive here , even though petrol is the cheapest it's been in years here I filled up this morning & it was £1.21 a litre thats £5.50 a UK gallon = $6.89
