1) If I buy a 2017 Nissan leaf with the $10k off from the electric company, can I still negotiate off the MSRP sticker price? How likely would it be that the dealer knocks another $4k off?

2) I have heard if you finance your leaf through nissan finance they give you $4,000 cash back. Can you combine the $4k from nissan finance with the $10k from the electric company rebate?

So would I be able to do this...

2017 Nissan Leaf SV: $34,000 (roughly)
-$10k electric company rebate
-$4k nissan financing cashback
-$4k let's say off MSRP negotiating with dealer
-$7500 federal tax credit

total: $9,000

Is that possible?

Also, I searched Nissans website and only found 30 2017 Nissan leafs in stock at Nissan dealerships near me. Is it possible there's more? That doesnt seem like a lot and I would assume dealerships would be bursting with leafs with gas prices dropping like a rock.

Thanks in advance!


The power company $10K does not stack with any other incentive or finance deal. In fact, one of the conditions is that you finance the car at the regular rate. So you have to read all of the conditions carefully. The price of the car is negotiable with the dealer, and I got mine to inflate the value of my trade by about $3000.

Thank you for the info!

One last question if you don't mind. Did your price include anything, like gap insurance? I haven't been to a dealer since 2004 and had a horrible experience when I got a car then. I would rather know what I can in advance.

Also did you have VPP?

Thanks again!

I believe that Nissan self-insures for GAP. If the car is totaled you lose the down payment, but don't owe anything on the lease.

I did not buy the gap insurance. I did get VPP and Leaf loyalty discounts.

By the way, CVRP just run out of money for the standard rebate and any new rebate will be place on the wait list. If you qualify for the increase rebate, they still have funding for that.

That is good, I guess I'll find that out soon.

I qualify by like $400, I guess I better get a move on.

Any thoughts on whether the unveiling of the 2018 Leaf/having it start being sold will cause a price drop on the 2017 Leaf? At the current price point for the 2017 Leaf given my budget (even including the 7500 federal tax credit etc) I'm just not quite ready to take the plunge at the current price point. So I'm wondering if the 2017 models will drop significantly in price when the 2018 one comes out.

I don't currently own a Leaf but I've been contemplating getting one. I live in Cupertino, California. I've been keeping my eye on this thread and looking at prices via autotrader and other places. My daily commute is 70 miles round trip (which means for most leases that's going to put me over the mileage limit and it also means that for the current generation Leaf I'd be using a good chunk of the battery capacity getting to work and back).

It looks like my utility (Excel Energy) has the $10k incentive extended through August. I would imagine that this promo is to "clear the pipeline" to make room for the 2018s. Has anyone experienced whether dealers are willing to order a specific model/feature package, or are they only selling-off inventory from the lot? Unfortunately, my market (Minneapolis/St. Paul MN) has poor selection.

They likely won't order a car from the factory. What they will usually do is trade another dealer for the car you want, if it's in stock somewhere. This is easiest to do if the company that owns the dealership has numerous others in the region.
