I am looking into buying or leasing a 2016 or 2017 Leaf S. I am in Atlanta, and have found a few 2016. There are a few incentives from Nissan, 10k Georgia power discount, $4k NMAC 0 % interest for the 2016. The lowest advertised price is $16,855. My questions is how much of an issue is the battery degradation for a leaf sitting on the lot for 8 plus months. Also, when speaking with the dealer on the phone, he said out the door was closer to 22k because the taxes are based on the sales price plus cash back. As for the lease of the 2017 I am getting quotes of $300 with 0 down.
Please let me know what your thoughts on pricing and if it is a bad idea to buy a 2016 which has been sitting on a lot for many months. I have gained so much information from this forum and it is very much appreciated.
As for the use of the car, it is mostly for around town so range is not a big concern.
Thanks so much for any advice,
