    Ask the Expert: Should I hand back my electric VW?

    I took out a four-year PCP (personal contract purchase) in late April 2021 on a brand-new VW ID.4 1st Edition. I love the car, but I have a key decision to make next April when the car might have 24,000 miles on the clock: do I pay the balloon payment to purchase outright, or do I hand the car back and order another on lease or PCP?
