Or for slightly less per month based on average monthly usage, you could buy, insure and fuel an I3 and when you got tired of it, you could sell it and get some money back.
Depends on Usage. I do car sharing and as always YMMV (pun intended)
I had a New Beetle that I bought 12 years ago. I cat 1.000EUR for it from the original price of 17.000. So that is say 750EUR per year devaluation.
My insurance was around 900EUR per year, parking was 50 and maintanance was 300 or so a year on avreage. That is 2.000EUR per year.
I now do car sharing. I get my public transport for free (company pays. Not uncommon in Belgium) and I use the car only to do shopping once a week. My bills are between 30 and 50EUR per month. So that would (looking at the top) 600EUR per year. And that includes fuel.
So I gain 1200EUR per year easy AND I have the car that I want.
This is not intended for all time use. This is intended for the occasional user. The website where I work with is www.cambio.be and they have cars in Belgium, some German cities and Ireland. They say that it becomes interesting if you drive less than (I think) 15.000KM.
This is intended for those that do not drive a lot, so no home-work traffic. No holidays (I would then rent a car as I already did before). Short trips and occosial usage.Many will use it as a second car.
As I said, I only use it for shopping. I was before paying for a car (in insurance) for a car that was standing in front of my house.
Do the calculations and you will see if it is interesting for you or not. Look in your area if there are options like www.cambio.be and you light be amazed how many there are. I know I was. (advertising it, because more users will give me more options)
