Do you think we’ve seen the end of anything other than city cars and superminis in the under five hundred pounds range now? There’s only the Ioniq that’s bigger and that can’t have much time left before being defleeted can it?
I guess it’s a symptom of the cost of living increases, chip shortages, etc. Before the pandemic you could get an ICE Octavia for £160’ish on a long term contract hire and they’re now wanting almost double that!
To be honest there’s some scalping of customers going on for ICE’s as a lot of them are worth as much as they were bought for in the present climate so the contract hire companies must be raking it in.
All of that said, I can’t get like for like with any of the cars on here for the same price. I can get near to it but would need to put six grand down up front so what would be the point in that?!
