Fuel Cost Calculator: Nissan Leaf v Renault Zoe

Research from The HonestJohn.co.uk has unveiled the huge cost disparity between two of the UK's most popular electric cars - the Nissan Leaf and the Renault Zoe.

The Fuel Cost Calculator has shown that Nissan Leaf drivers make annual saving of £1000, yet with a new Leaf costing £21,490, it will take a shocking 76,369 miles before the car breaks even with its Renault counterpart.

In comparison, the Zoe costs £13,833 and is subject to an annual battery hire cost of £1020, yet the Nissan Leaf savings will take years to make an impact.

Assumes that you don't sell - you would get more for the Leaf on resale and it's easier to sell
