Re: Leasing 2018 Nissan Leaf - Reservation arrives 1-16-18

That would mean that all of them were delayed since the Dealer has 12 on order and none have arrived. Same with all dealers in the region.


HOPEFULLY that isn't a QC issue, then!

Sadly, What you are guessing is the most plausible answer to why there are no deliveries on the dates that were supposed to have occurred per the dealer system.

11 2018 LEAFs shown in inventory within 500 miles of me, all at Sacramento:

https://www.edmunds.com/inventory/srp.h ... &zip=96069

I have no idea if they are really there, or not.

My local dealer said yesterday that they were just beginning to show up on his screen.

I believe no new car an be sold without an EPA (Monroney) sticker, which apparently is not yet available for the 2018 LEAF.

Could be the Government shutdown Screwed with Nissan's schedule for a just-in-time-announcement of the 2018 LEAF's range and efficiency, as well as the intro.
no condition is permanent

Referring yet again to the Bolt rollout: the cars were showing up in dealer stock listings as soon as a privately ordered car went into transit. There were no actual cars there, just pre-orders being shipped.

A side by side comparison from that site shows the 2017 and 2018 EPA range as identical:

Now it’s going to be 4-8 weeks from now. That’s a huge ****up from 1/20. For a car ordered in Sept. Whatever the delays are, the whole process is completely disfunctional.

I didn't want to have mine delivered while ice is still a concern. Maybe I should order now after all...

You should have been around in 2011 with the line jumpers caused by a glitch in Nissan's ability to sort numbers properly.
1 bar lost at 21,451 miles, 16 months.
2 bar lost at 35,339 miles, 25 months.
LEAF traded at 45,400 miles for a RAV4-EV
