Used Electric Cars

The days of the G wiz electric type cars running around 35-40 miles at a maximum speed of 50 mph have long fizzled out (excuse the pun !) The latest range of electric cars are the Nissan leaf , the Mitsubishi I-Miev and Citroens C zero are the first of a new range of useable electric cars.

We are looking to offer used ex demo & ex lease vehicles, at a reduced cost over new, with the remaining new car warranty.


Why Electric Cars Make Sense

- Free road tax, on street parking and London drivers of electric cars are Congestion charge exempt
- The range on a full charge is around 100 miles
- £1.80 to charge from your own electrical socket (based on a Nissan Leaf charged over night on cheap rate electricity)
- Free fuel (if charged through solar panels or a wind turbine !)
- Cheaper maintenance costs (there is just one moving part)
- Good for the environment (with solar panels or wind turbine it is effectively emission free)


Extra Range

Ecotricity and Nissan UK has at all the major Motorway service areas Rapid Chargers that will fully charge your EV in around 20/30 minutes , just time for a coffee, bite to eat , and a toilet stop !

Click the video below to watch a road trip in a Mark 1 japan built Nissan leaf, (the UK built 24kwh leaf has better range, and the 30kwh leaf and 40kwh Leaf even more , up to 160 miles between charges) and how the rapid chargers work.

Free Fuel

We charge our Leaf by means of PV (solar photovoltaic) panels on our south facing roof.
The cost is around £6000 for the panels (in 2011), and we look at these as buying our fuel for the leaf 'up front' and storing it on our roof.

The average petrol engined car over 15,000 miles a year will spend around £3800 so in 30,000 miles the panels will have paid for them selves ...and then you in real terms have FREE fuel for you EV ....for the life of the panels ( at year 25 they expect to loose around 5% of their efficiency )

what people are saying

27/03/19 Thinking of switching to an EV? Let Eco-Cars find the right one for you! Having bought my first electric car, a 24kWh Nissan Leaf, from Jonathan three years ago, I already new about the personal service and competitively priced deals offered by Eco-Cars. So, when my sister-in-law expressed an interest in having one, albeit on a very limited budget, I kept an eye out on their website and social media for several months until an early LEAF appeared there at a bargain price. Unfortunately we weren't able to view it straight away so, despite having other offers coming in, Jonathan kindly held the car for us for a WEEK until we could get to see it. She'd never driven an EV before and James was first class at getting her behind the wheel and teaching her the basics. She was driving with confidence within minutes and loved it! James is delivering it this Friday. It was the fact that we were given time and space to think and deliberate, with no pushy sales talk and cups of tea whilst further questions were asked, which swayed us in favor. Great service again!
