Drivers looking to use car leasing to acquire a new eco-friendly vehicle may be interested in the Nissan Leaf.
The electric car is set to be launched in the UK early next year and, according to industry valuation organisation CAP, the vehicle is likely to keep 40 per cent of its list price after three years and 30,000 miles.
It says that the car’s residuals – along with its tax exemptions and favourable running costs – “will prove a financially competitive choice for forward-thinking fleets”.
This could be a boon for those considering using car leasing to acquire the Nissan Leaf, as lease deals tend to be worked out based on the vehicle’s depreciation.
Popular Mechanics recently named the Nissan Leaf as one of its top products of 2010, praising its modest cost and 100-mile range.
The car is proving to be something of a hit in the US, where over 13,000 drivers have already put a deposit down on the vehicle.
