So here is the way it works. If your fail to renew your battery rental and do not return the battery in 7 days then you have to pay for the battery at cost price - 10% for each year.
Battery is £2770 new and so 3 years down the line it is worth about £2k. Or 3.7 years of payments at £45.
Pros - you have no mileage limitations and no worries about battery insurance. Should be easier to sell as it is sold with battery included.
Cons - No flat bed option, not battery repairs.
Renault state they expect the battery to last 10 years before it needs work to bring it back over 75%. Details for this came form a Renault dealer, who had to decide what to do with their demo but they were only paying £25 a month and thought that over 9 years pay back was too long.
So what do I do?
