    Justin Comiskey, March 6, 2017 (Irish Times)

    “My new car is saving me about €3,000 every year in running costs compared with my previous motor – and that’s a conservative estimate based on easily measurable things such as road tax and fuel as opposed to imponderables such as maintenance and all the rest…[Our 1.9 litre VW Transporter] was getting on and costing more and more to maintain…[Our budget was] about €30,000…[The 30kWh Nissan Leaf] gave the best combination of range (typically 180km per 100 per cent charge) and price…Its list price was €33,590, but a €5,000 government grant for new electric vehicles reduced this to €28,590 and the €4,600 trade-in on our old VW brought the price down further to €23,990…But what really clinched the deal for us were the savings going forward. Road tax [dropped from the VW’s €750 to the Leaf’s is €120…The VW consumed €50 a week in diesel, while the Leaf costs us virtually nothing…” click here for more
