But this is not the case of the Leaf, a study conducted by CAP claims, so the all-electric car will retain 47 percent of its on-the-road price after three years and 30,000 miles spent behind the wheel of the car. If you think this isn't too much, it actually is and, in some cases, it's even better than hybrids or diesel models.
“Buyers can be confident that the LEAF will not lose value any faster than a conventional rival, thanks to the verdict of independent industry experts. Nissan is happy to show its confidence too and underwrite the future value using a PCP scheme. This will help drivers get behind the wheel of the new European Car of the Year 2011," Paul Willcox, managing director of Nissan Motor GB, said.
In the United Kingdom, Nissan Leaf comes with special financing offers. For instance, a consumer who wants to make a deposit of 3,850 pounds would have to pay only 397.17 pounds per month. After three years of payments, the buyer has three options: he can either give the car back to Nissan, refinance the credit or even purchase another model from within the Nissan range.
