It’s only affordable because there’s no BIK tax. I tried to PM you with the cost but your inbox is full. It is significantly more expensive than what I’m paying now, put it that way.
BIK is only zero this year isn’t it? Goes up 1% per year for the next 2 years iirc.

The govt have reduced the BIK. Normally I’d see this is tax avoidance but EVs are necessary for the future of the environment, so it’s for the greater good.

Whomever is buying and leasing these cars must make a profit 🤷🏻‍♂️
So tax avoidance is ok when it suits then ?

Hypocrite.

It’s to save the planet mate. There are some things bigger than me, climate change is one of them.
Can you give us the full details of carbon emissions used during the manufacturing of the complete car and battery pack ?

No I am not a battery manufacturer
thought you were interested in saving the planet though ?

you're like a friggin politician , telling people what you want them to hear while having no grasp of the bigger picture .

ev’s are not the answer to saving the planet .
 
Just about to ditch our velar, it’s depreciated £35k in two and a half years. Lovely car, but I’ll never again go near LR with that rate of depreciation. That and there’s a shit load of them on the road now as they’re biting them out on cheap finance deals.

The model 3 is the future but it’s fugly. Id hang fire for the Taycan in September. Similar price but a world apart.
The Taycan is lovely but too expensive for me....for that money i'd rather go RR Sport....

The depreciation doesn't really bother me as its a company car on lease, so it goes back no matter what....
Can you not hang on a few months for the Y? Or take a look at the jag.
Not a fan of the Jag, but the Y looks decent, I will still test drive the Model 3, just because its booked....

Minimal though really. Back up to normal rates from 2023 I think
I can’t see them going up from 2% to the petrol rates straight away, I think they’ll stagger it if not extend the low rate.

I’ve been looking at the X but it’s too expensive even with zero BIK and the S and the 3 don’t really have the space I need so the Y looks like a good option.

I hope so! I want to keep an EV.

think they're bringing out the turbo versions first which are a fair whack more than the 'from £83k' price they're advertising. Don't think there's a date for the standard yet.
