BIK rates on the jags and beemers are quite high, LCVs are a fixed very low rate even with fuel cards and pickups fall in to that category (if they have a 1kT carrying capacity.

But the "Hybrid" things, which barely do 10 miles on a charge. Appear very cheap.  :-\

Only really useful if doing about 50 miles a day.  I am doing twice that easily.

If the Model 3 was available I would have that in a heartbeat.  It is going to make a very attractive company car option.  Relatively good value car with very low BIK rates.

As are most VW products, but I was wondering because of the residuals, I thought a lease/PCP might not be so bad.
Not so... They are priced up to the market... Residuals aren't actually that great on VAG products even if they are perceived to be. They're expensive to begin with.

My only experience with VAG products so far has been the golf I've signed for. Cost more than either the leaf or Zoe, but less to lease than either.

TBF that's comparing really bad depreciation to racking awful depreciation though!

My Altea XL lost 10k in two years... It would have lost nearer 15k, but as it was pre registered, I only paid 12,500 for it...

Being able to write off the depreciation was most helpful ;D

In all honesty i am probably going to have to wait a couple of years before i get anything fancy.  The company entity is fairly young and many finance companies wont touch it.  I have found somewhere that will do the ranger sp if i do that for a couple of years and look again when the model 3 and other evs are around (and that the current evs rethink their tow bar decisions)

They are arn't they!

I knew it was going to be fast given the figures but nothing prepares you for the reaction when you plant it in sport mode.  I felt like I wasn't pushed in to the seat but that my chest had been sat on by a sumo wrestler who was carrying a small car.  We came across a Maclaren on the drive who wanted to go, he had trouble keeping up :D   The handling is good too, you can literally throw it in to any corner at speed with high accuracy.  The only thing letting it down is the lack of 100kW charging stations but that isn't JLR's fault and should be rectified in a few years.

Wow, just, WOW!

Dave Ramsey has recently purchased his first brand new car (having previously advocated against it until you have at least a million dollars net worth)...

His choice? A Raptor...  :D
