Committed LEAF 2018 Buyer: Raise Your Hand

Tue Dec 05, 2017 10:26 am

There is some interest in the forum when it comes to discussing this upcoming model, but I wonder how many sales are close to a done thing from forum members by, say, end of Q1 2018 presuming inventory is available at MSRP.

I was committed until the tax credit became imperiled. Now I'm driving every 2017 EV I can find. If the credit remains, I will still lease a 2018 Leaf.
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

I'm leaning towards the 2018 LEAF but I'll probably test-drive the Bolt before finalizing my decision. I'd consider Model3 but it just doesn't meet my timeframe.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Model 3 reservation in place.
Not interested in 2018 leaf.
Too little range.
No thermal management of the battery.

Would consider the Bolt before the leaf.

Was that a yes or a no? I don't read blogs.

You got it right. Lease to purchase is THE only way to buy a LEAF. plus you got 3 years to get buyers remorse :)

Yes, especially given the disaster that is the 30kwh pack. I figure that even if it loses 30% over 3 years, I'll still have the 100 mile range I actually need.
