Hello all, I’m looking at a 2018 SV with tech package. I’ve got the dealer down to 35,800 out the door so, minus taxes and licensing (California), it’s about 32,800 purchase price does this sound like the best I can get?

sounds good to me. what is price after incentives?

compare it to a gasser for the same price... I am guessing it won't be much of a contest.

:D That’s with the incentives figured in but it’s about $1000 better than a quote from a different sales person. The weird thing is some of them claim there’s a $1000 incentive and others say it’s only for a lease. The only reliable incentive has been 0% for 72 months.

Trying to get them down to 34,800 out the door and throw in some all weather mats

Yikes! I paid $6,000 for my used 2013 Leaf last year and ended up getting a replacement battery, so this is a massive price difference.

Yeah, whiletax credits etc exist you’ll find an instant drop in value of about $10,000 or more. Then, because the range of 1st gen leafs was so bad they likely plummeted even more. Not that they’re bad cars per se but a lot of people won’t want such a short range car. I know my round trip commute was 80 miles/day so I could never go for an older leaf.

With 150 mile range and propilot assist there have been some major upgrades to the 2018 Leaf (not to mention it’s way better looking). So, with taxes/rebates taken into account it ended up costing me about 25k for a new car with nearly double the range and auto pilot as the used 2013 leaf that cost 6k + another 4-6k for a new battery. Seems about right.

It looks like Nissan has added some end of month incentives, as my existing deal just got better by what looks like $1200. Check with your local dealership.

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

You won the lottery. Your 'deal' is quite unusual and can end poorly.

That would be 150 EPA miles in the 2018 LEAF
If you live in a climate with winter roads or strong winds, on some days you may find you have 120 miles of range, perhaps less if you expect to drive in a nicely warm cabin.
Want to have a few kWh left in the battery each day to avoid range anxiety and even faster battery degradation ? Now you have 100 -110 miles range.

Nissan warrants the pack to have at least ~ 63% of new capacity.
Now you are down to ~ 63 - 70 miles range.

For your sake I hope you live in a temperate climate or your workplace or somewhere nearby gives you a charge solution when needed.

I live in so cal and get free level 1 charging at work. Employer has a project to install 24 level 2 chargers that will be free as well. But yes, a 40 mile trip at about 80 mph on eco setting does use about 50 miles of range. I definitely took into account the ability to charge at work before deciding to pickup the leaf instead of the bolt, volt, or waiting for a model 3

New to the forum. I am about to buy a certified 2017 Leaf SV with 4000 miles for. $17000 + $500 shipping to replace my 2013 Ford Escape. I'm selling the Escape for $10k, so that'll help offset the deal. Our other car is a Model X, so the Leaf will be my commuter for work, 12 miles each way. Well also use it to get groceries, etc on weekends. After 5 months and 8000 miles with the X, we are ready to go full electric. Plus I wanted a car with a warranty, as the Escape's is long gone. No more gas pumps for us. Hope this works out!
