That would be a great deal but I've heard that the $3k PG&E discount won't combine with the NMAC financing/loyalty cash. But definitely ask your local dealer and let us know. Better yet ask a few dealers

Can anyone confirm that the discounts can be combined, and it is possible to reduce the price of 2018 Nissan Leaf from its MSRP of $30K to $11,500, plus tax?

The twin to my car. You got yours for significantly less, though. Build date?

Production month was February - it shipped 2/28 (don't know where from) and arrived 3/7. It was also dealer traded a couple times, including for this sale, which might explain why it shows as having 135 miles on it (and it'll be at 200 miles after being delivered from it's current dealership). It should arrive late tomorrow (Friday) afternoon.

The other dealers I entertained, after telling them I'd made my purchase, all mentioned I got a very good deal. The funny thing was, I didn't actually do any dealing. I just called up the dealership, told them what I wanted and to email me a price and I got the numbers mentioned in my previous post. Before doing the final paper-work today I was trying to ensure they'd get the plates and registration tomorrow (Friday) so I could actually pick the car up for the weekend. The salesperson told me not to push it because supposedly his boss was about ready to pull the plug on this deal...

I got what was a good enough deal at the time - the end of April, when sales were still strong. Mine was also driven a bit. It may have been a demo, but it was immaculate when I picked it up. It's a late March build. I was trying for April, as I had seem some defects in February cars, but it's been fine. I'm still not sure if there is supposed to be a Nissan Connect icon, though. Does yours have one on the touch screen?

I also think it's 2K from NMAC and not 4K and same here some stuff can't be combined but ask the dealer for it anyway and walk if they don't. They are motivated to sell the Leaf's but with gas prices rising I am guess sales pickup soon.

It appears all these promotions can be combined. Nissan Sunnyvale made an offer of $28,275 as the final price for 2018 Nissan Leaf S with charge package, protection package and other accessories, advertised as MSRP of $33,090.

MSRP: $33,090
-$4000 loyalty + financing
-$1000 new graduate
-$3000 PG&E
-------------
Total before tax: $25,090

Tax @ 9.25%: $2,320
License & registration: about $300

Total: $27,710

The difference with the offered price is $565, so it is pretty close. That's without any negotiations.

With the 4K and 3K rebates which are a big plus and the $7500 tax rebate makes it a no brainer, I am sure only a few qualify when actually purchasing for the 1K new grad discount so congrats! I am only lucky with no sales tax and only was only able to get 2K from Financing at 0%. Also no doc fees? my state caps them at $499 + reg $360 + $7.50 tire fee so that adds another $780

So take that 27,000 - 7500 and you have a inexpensive EV to enjoy.

Again congrats if you buy it!

One note for others here, I did read that each model has a greater profit range with a larger discount available to work with as the models go up. So the S will be a smaller discount over the SL etc.

Another data point:

Nissan of San Francisco
2018 SV with Tech package, Protection package, Floor mats, splash guards, premium pearl white paint.

MSRP: $36,595
Negotiated price: $28,983

Doc fee: $80
EV registration: $29
Sales tax: $2796
State fees: $412

Total out-the-door: $32,300

The catch is they forced me to take a 5.5% interest loan with NMAC for $30k. Will be paying that off in the next few days. Minimum finance charge adds $75 to the OTD cost.

$7612 is a great discount off MSRP. My discount was $7199 of an MSRP that was $2k higher. You definitely got the better deal! I'm assuming here you didn't qualify for any of the military or student programs or the Nissan loyalty program (I didn't).

Also, it always amazes me that the doc fee in CA is $80 when it's typically $400 in MA.
