I did not see WHEN Lance is going to get his.
Did they give a date, or month?
Thanks

So, it seems that the first production LEAFs will be coming "off the line" (or almost) before October.
Perhaps there could be some early "first area" deliveries in November?

But when financing you aren't putting the money all upfront. Just like in lease. So, in terms of comparison, I'd compare the money paid for lease to financed buy.
Assuming 5% interest rate, doc fee of 500 - if the residue after 3 years is 11,000 - financing & lease would turn out to be the same in WA.

Since the official statement from Nissan is the dealer sets the price, it theorectically could go + or - from MSRP right?
