Default Why it Still Makes Sense to Buy A Cheap Used Electric Car Like a Nissan Leaf or a Che

ANALYSIS AND OPINION: This is an ongoing mini-series of reports themed “life after Leaf,” where I take a look at what happens when you turn in the keys of a firsthand used BEV like Nissan Leaf after a brand new lease or purchase, to wonder what happens to the car thereafter. There’s such a plentiful amount of them that many will not see a long life, but in this report we take a look at why it makes sense to still buy a cheap used all electric car.





In my past few years of intensive research on electric and autonomous vehicles, one of the things I learned from the electric car industry 100 years ago, is that electric car drivers mostly leased their BEVs back then, as fewer were an actual purchase. This is in fact where the gasoline auto industry that drove the electric one out of business got their leasing business model from. No one wanted to take a risk with the batteries going defective even with a warranty.

Why Lease New v. New Purchase
