More data points.
Great deal. If I could get 10k MSRP off a 2017 SV, I would jump on it. I keep seeing this reference for "Fighting Chance car buying method". Is that the "email your terms to all local dealers" method?
Be careful of what you wish because you may just get it.
I got mine $10K off MSRP with a Nissan fleetail incentive.
Last week while I was visiting the dealership to have my NissanConnect activated, my salesman told me that if I find anyone who is interested to buy a Nissan Leaf 2017, they will offer the same deal.
Basically they will give you $10K off MSRP like they did to me.
So naturally, the next question is, will you take a bite?
I also noticed that they had new delivery of Leaf 2017 that they had to park them in every nook and cranny they could find on their already cramped huge lot. I saw white, red, blue, gray ones. There may be more that I didn't see elsewhere on the lot.
Nissan is dumping their 2017 model because of the upcoming 2018 model. So bargain hard and I think you will get a better deal than mine.
My deal in short:
-Nissan Leaf 2017 SV with 3 options: cargo cover (a must have), floor + cargo mats, splash guards.
-$35755 MSRP - $10k Nissan incentive
-0% down, 2.75% interest for 84 months (7 years). I took a loan from my bank at slightly higher rate for convenience sake. I will pay off the car in 2 years anyway.
-Federal tax credit (next year) $7500. I will qualify for the maximum credit.
-California State Rebate $2500
-PG&E Rebate $500
-ChargePoint Rebate for enrolling in the EV-B program with PG&E for 12 months - $400 (subject to availability)
The most expensive cost beside the car is the purchase of ChargePoint EVSE and professional installation for a new 40Amp circuit and an outlet.
$675 for the ChargPoint Home 32Amps with plug + 25' cord and $1075 for the installation.
One of the many pleasures of owning the EV and the smart EVSE, I can tell how much charging my Leaf to full capacity costs me.
Last night, it cost me $0.72 for charging for +1 hours starting at 11pm (cheapest rate) from about 75-80% battery capacity.
On top of reducing the rate significantly during off-peak hours, PG&E seems to also give monthly rebate.
Last month I got $18 rebate on my energy bill.
Compared that to my sedan. On average I spend $7.50/day on workdays. About $30 every 4 days. About $250/month.
If you are interested to take a plunge, I can give you the salesman name and phone number.
