    It's £15 + £50 monthly battery rental with no deposit for a 24 month 4,500 mile PCP. So £65 month + charging costs + insurance are the full costs over the two years.

    Not bad if you are thinking of a twizzy

    It says £15# per month in the advert...I think it means £150/month. Do the math. Plus £50/month for the battery - as long as you do less than 1250 miles/month.

    Top speed 50mph - are these things allowed on motorways?

    Cheek!! :doh:

    Try reading the advert again and following your own advice of doing the math, and you'll see that it means what it says, £15 a month for the PCP.

    For the record - EuroNCAP is not a legal requirement, but a consumer test, which no 'normal' car is obliged to pass. Quite a few supercars would also not be 5* I suspect either.

    Cash price 3400 plus fees 300

    24 payment

    24 x 15 = 360

    24 x 150 = 3600

    Is it 15# or 150?

    So here's the advert....
    This is a PCP deal, so total amount you pay is...

    Total Amount Payable £3,700.90 minus Guaranteed Minimum Future Value £3,191.90 = £509

    Minus £149 Finance Facility Fee payable with first instalment = £360

    £360 divided by 24 monthly payments = £15

    As stated in the advert the # is note to say that battery rental fee of £50 is also payable. It's not a typo. ;)

    So, as you can see, if you 'do the math' the advert is correct. You'll have to ask Bristol Street Motors, why they are pricing the initial purchase price so low. I suspect it's to shift allocation.

    cheers, Steve

    I suspect it's a marketing ploy. I enquired earlier in the week and there were no cars available. :(
