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.
