    The manufacturers are calling the shots, it’s goodbye to huge motability discounts in the medium term😞

    The one positive though, is that this glimmers hope that eventually the Ionic 5 (same price ish) makes it to the scheme.

    The Ariya has 220 miles range (the one on the scheme), so even at a more reasonable price i wouldn’t go for one. That being said, i don’t think it has been said (nor do i agree with) that “EVs are for everyone”. Not quite sure what’s expected – i think the Ariya isn’t far off of what i’d consider “within reason”. It’s a £43.000 car that goes up to way over £55.000 when spec’d accordingly, of course it’s not going to be cheap.

    A while ago some member were calling for the price cap on AP and BHP limit to be raised, personally I set my own budget, but it nice to see for those fortunate enough to afford the high AP at least have the option.

    I was one of those who asked for the price cap and BHP limit to be increased but there is no way I would pay the AP’s that are being asked for the likes of a bloody bog standard Nissan etc.

    Have you read the reviews of it Elliot? It’s a step up from much of what we are currently driving and a significant improvement on the German brand offerings

    Like I stated I set myself a budget, for our current car I set a budget of £2,000, fortunately our current cars AP came in well below our set budget.

    However, our lease in due for renewal in 12 months time, the current AP are a wee bit on the high side for me, hopefully they will let me extend my lease for another 2 years and the market will level out. We tow a caravan if we wish to carry on towing and stay on the scheme, I will however extension or no extension will have too dramatically increase my budget to around £5,500 ?

    Not sure we would be willing to do that.

    I’ve read all the reviews I’ve found and it’s certainly not a step up on the 3 series I’m currently driving which cost me thousands less in AP.

    No, one really hasn’t.

    I’m not arguing whether or not the Ariya is good, i haven’t driven one, so no idea. To assume that Nissan, a volume manufacturer that has its very own niche (reliability) suddenly not only rivals, but overtakes a german premium manufacturer is just nonsense. It doesn’t happen.

    Look how long it took Peugeot to rival VW in quality. Look at DS, etc. It’s not “an overnight thing”, and the Ariya certainly, without a doubt and even without having driven one, is not going to be “significant improvement over german offerings”. The german offering here being EQC and iX, both of which just demolish an Ariya in any category other than “affordability”. It’s not even a fair comparison.

    Elliot you need to take those Rose tinted glasses off……there’s a whole world of cars out there,

    BMW’s are ok I know I’ve got one and have had many previously.

    Personally I don’t think they are a patch on what they used to be and brand snobbishness will not carry them for ever.

     

     

    I’ve also had other cars which are better

    I have to disagree, in my opinion, Kia and Hyundai have overtaken WV, or the VAG group in terms of electric vehicles, better efficiency, value, reliability, according to the indices  and in my opinion quality too. At the top end, the S class and 7 series cannot be bettered, but the gap has been closing between the “mainstream” and “quality” brands. I speak as a driver of two BMW´s and several Mercedes cars on a shorter term basis.  The badge is becoming less important.

    All I can say to that is cohones.

    Comparing a Nissan to a BMW is like comparing chalk to cheese.

    Name the cars you’ve had which in your opinion are better.

    Times might be changing but you can’t tell me a Nissan is a premium car.

    It fascinates me how people create a view of the world which everyone must agree …

    From what reviews Ive seen, the Aryia’s cousin Megane E tech is an all round far better car.

    But none of those have been on the scheme which is what I was referring to. I’ve driven cars that are better, cars like Aston Martins and Bentleys but again they won’t ever appear on Motability.

    Surely if someone is willing to pay that much to get the car on Motability, good luck to them.  Both the Kona and Soul are getting on a bit and, as much as I’d love to see it the Ioniq 5 and EV6 are unlikely to be offered unless huge APs are allowed (think £10k+).  However, a base model Nissan isn’t worth that sort of money.

     

    The current market has all manufacturers capable of filling all the sales they can deliver, Motability has become something of a pain.  When times are tough and new car demand is nowhere near supply, suddenly it’ll be popular again and APs will be heavily reduced.  Afterall, would you sell a car for £10,000 when you could easily get £15,000 for it with just a little effort?

    I think I’ve seen enough reviews to decide not to bother driving one plus the measly range makes it totally pointless for me.
