With the botched American launch I may wait until May to try to catch discounts here as my lease ends.

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

It is surprising that this whole thing fell off the rails already, on a car that shares parts with the previous model. My local dealer claimed to be the #1 seller in the USA, but he got two S models during last week.

Going by the little evidence we have, I don't think I'd want a Leaf Too built before April anyway.

Has everyone else missed that the ops LEAF was purchased in Virginia which is not a ZEV state? Doesn't that make a good deal harder to get?

Yes, but not impossible. We're in VA and are currently leasing a 2015 SV w/ Prem for $198/mo with nothing down other than first month's payment. But good lease deals on EV's in Virginia take a lot more work than for the same car on SoCal.

Your situation is COMPLETELY different. I leased a 30 kwh LEAF for nothing down and $245 a month with 15k miles. Those days are gone... at least for now.

My point was merely that the problem with getting good lease deals on a 2018 Leaf isn't the fact that someone is in Virginia- it's that the 2018 Leaf just launched and is brand new. And it's often very challenging to get reasonable lease deals on anything that's brand new, regardless of the make or model.

Well maybe we need to be reminded that despite the 2018 reportedly being a MUCH better version than previous years while STILL cheaper than previous versions that PERHAPS there is simply less room and need to get a huge discount to justify the TCO on the car... or we can wait and see if trump gets his gas tax hike ;)
