In September, Nissan offers its Leaf with an offer without contribution at 130 € per month, against 249 € previously! But is it interesting?
How far will Nissan go? In June, the Japanese brand set up a new rental offer for its Leaf, a “no contribution” LLD at €249 per month, or €85 less than before. And now the Japanese brand is hitting much harder this fall, announcing 130 € per month!
There is always talk of a LLD over 3 years (36 months), with 30,000 km, or 10,000 km per year. In its calculation, Nissan always takes into account the ecological bonus, which makes it possible to cover an increased 1st rent. The Japanese even share the bonus of €7,000, reserved for those who have a reference tax income per share under €14,090. For the others, it is 5,000 €.
And beware: a trick to lower the price here is that Nissan also takes into account the scrapping bonus of €2,500, which was not the case in June! So to have a 1st rent reduced to 0 €, you need the maximum bonus and scrap an old car (petrol from before 2006, diesel from before 2011). It is in this case that we have a rent of 130 € per month. Otherwise, it is no longer the offer without contribution and the rents will be higher!
If all the planets align, is it worth it? The Leaf concerned is the 40 kWh Acenta model. The Acenta is already well equipped. There are standard alloy rims, keyless opening and starting, auto air conditioning, 8-inch touch screen with Apple Car Play and Android Auto connectivity, rear view camera… No problem at this level.
With 40 kWh, the announced range is 270 km. It becomes bad in electric compacts, but may be sufficient for daily trips. The great handicap of the Leaf is its fast charging solution, a ChaDeMo socket, with a maximum power of 50 kW.
With this price, the Leaf can be interesting depending on your uses, if you don’t often make long trips. Its real interest for us here is to pose as a more livable and more practical alternative to electric city cars, whose rental prices are barely lower. Compared to these vehicles, such as the Twingo, the Leaf is also better equipped and offers more autonomy.
But it should also be borne in mind that the purchase aid can be used for vehicles which will certainly be more expensive to rent, but which are more recent and therefore technically more modern.
Nissan accompanies the offer on the Leaf by supplying and installing a 7.4 kW charging station at home at half price, €649 instead of €1,369.
Electric car at €100 per month – Which is the best deal: Spring, 500e, MG4, Twingo?
