End to Battery leasing looks to be only for ZOE's where they have new models out. So no one wants the one ones. By removing the battery lease it makes them more attractive.
There are limited Twizyz and no new model, so RCI think no one cares. Also the point that most Zoe's were on PCP contracts so go back to RCI who need them to be worth somehting which they ar eif battery included . Twizy owners do just that and own it and if they want to use it have to pay for the battery. Until a cheap replacement comes along, perhaps spurred by the Open source Twizy.
