Guardian today says starting price is 239000 with monthly 3111 in an ad

If you saving say 600 on gas and 400 on maintenance then really you paying 2111 compared to similar price ICE


Maybe compare to a cheaper but similarly equipped ICE vehicle like an Elantra?

do you actually save on maintenance? i would imagine these firms trying a lil thing to make you pay for maintenance.

Typically I have noticed when there is less to change there is a tendency for more to be checked so in many cases the answer is no.

Depreciation is a big issue with these EV's the concern would be buyers in the second hand market will be the battery which are expensive to replace. Also unlike a hybrid you have no options if your battery isnt holding charge.

Actually it is a 10yr warranty on the battery ... saw the advert in the paper ... now remember that warranty covers total failure or it degrading beyond a certain level ... with the amount of technological innovation taking place in the electronics and battery field in EV's generally will depreciate very heavily indeed.

400k for a car with a 1.4? Dem smoking some pre legal weed or wha?
By interior quality you mean headliner issues 3-4 years into ownership?

The only place the germs excel is how much fun you have when you drive the car ... and even this being challenged by little car companies like Mazda ....

No changes to affect vehicle prices except foreign exchange issues in the budget

I'd say it's more along the lines of the Suzuki Ertiga, since its an MPV. The dimensions are pretty much the same, but the Ertiga has more features and is $30,000 less. The Livina is a re-badged Mitusbishi Xpander.

It's called a Nissan Livina which obviously with the relationship with Mitsubishi is powered by a 4A91 engine.

Confirmed, the 2019 Nissan Livina 1.5 which is basically a Mitsubishi Xpander with the 4A91 inlet VVT engine and 4AT transmission. It has rear drum brakes and is a fwd vehicle. One would recall, DM brought in the Lancer EX (CY) in both GLX and GLS trim with this 4A91 engine between 2007 and 2010 which eventually gave way to the 4A92. What I know for sure is, those Lancer 1.5s despite having EPS IMO were not any faster than the 1.6 belt driven power steering models.

This new Livina like it’s competitors such as the Rush and Ertiga would not be known for strong acceleration, above average handling or braking performance. These are for mature folks who drive causally and require the utility of having 7 seats.
