I’m about as committed as you can possibly get. I just got word that my delivery was pushed up to February 10th. Unfortunately the Bolt isn’t available where I live in Japan, but I’m excited about my purchase. I’ll get my ¥400,000 EV subsidy (about $3,600 right now) on the 29th of this month. That’s the first 10 payments right there.

The 2015 lease has got a reasonable residual, the most lizardly battery so far, and for the upcoming year I really don't need any more range. For 2019 I may need a longer-range car. This should give time to see how this new era of EV competition begins to sort itself out.

The LEAFs were put on hold in January because I was told by my sales person that Nissan wanted to ship them to dealers all at the same time, hence all the February deliveries. Of course, there could have been a problem though that they needed time to fix. My 2018 SV that I plan to lease is scheduled to arrive tomorrow morning, February 12 (Lincoln’s bd), and is supposed to be ready by the afternoon. My insurance through MetLife is only $80/mo. :D

Well, as you might know, my ability to wait for my first choice has been severely compromised so I elected an S with QC, weather and floor mats and it will be here between the 11th and the 17th.

My first choice; SV with tech, weather and mats in green was not scheduled to arrive til March but right now, timetables are approximately a month behind.

But the thought of gassing it as much as two more months was not a thing I am willing to put up with.

I would have gone with the S if I could have PPA, but you can’t get that as an option on the S.

In Canada, specifically Ontario, I know many authorized Leaf dealers have received NFS unit(s). I test drove one this past weekend. Very nice.

Am considering putting an order in for SL model. Was told delivery would be April/May with a slight chance of end of March (Nissan's Corporate Fiscal Year End - so they will push as hard as they can) if I ordered within next week or so.

My hand is now officially DOWN. I'll take a perfect 2017 SV with Premium, in a color I like, over a 2018.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I'll throw my hat into the ring. Going to order SL Jade Frost at the end of this week. Was told normal delivery should be April or May latest. However, with Nissan Corp Fiscal Year end March 31st, they may accelerate orders to ship as much as possible. Since Jade Frost is not a common colour, that would take longer then the Pearl White, Black or others.

I'll update once our order is in and we get some feedback, but excited to finally be entering the EV realm!

Jade Frost was my choice and it was always listed as a delayed option but looks like we will start seeing our first in Mid March. I simply can't wait that long though.... I am LEAFless and its kinda killing me... :(
