Are you implying that you have taken delivery of a 2018 Leaf with these numbers? Or is this just an offer you have been given?

Also, this post should probably be moved to one of the many existing 2018 Leaf threads.

I suggested a new thread for 2018 LEAF deliveries, of which simply was the first (?) to post, here:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1114&start=880

Simply, you can edit this thread title and add to your post for clarity, if you want to.

Or maybe a moderator can assist?

zero down payment is nice I guess.

what is the rent charge? Money Factor? Annual Mileage?

Read his signature, @getoffyourgas

The residual is really interesting at $12,200. About 60% depreciation after the federal tax credit is accounted for. That actually seems realistic and atypical for Nissan. It does, however, result in ahem high lease costs.
To use @DaveInOly's term, OP is paying ~ $500 + tax a month to rent the car.

Payments are 50% of the value of the car. Granted, taxes, etc are part of that but without knowing rent charge, Money Factor, its difficult to quantify the deal.

Yes, I noticed that. But that doesn't mean he actually took delivery of the car. It sure does imply it though.

I'm just a little surprised that Nissan didn't have a little dog-and-pony show for the first US delivery of a 2018 Leaf. This whole roll out feels highly anti-climactic.

And the price is certainly high. You can almost get a Bolt for that, and the Bolt has a much higher MSRP. (Yes, I know the Leaf is preferred to the Bolt by many, but that is not my point).

If I interpret the OP correctly:

simply wrote:va state sales tax $1,247.56
va title, license, registration $132.50
Acquisition Fee $595.00

Monthly Payment $533.70


Means that it was $1975.06 out of pocket + $533.70/mo for a total of $21,188.26 for 3 years.

I don't see how the deal would be with zero down payment since depreciation and fees would be $558.37/mo, and that's before any money factor.

What was your money factor on your lease?

Thank you

I am using this formula to determine the money factor which I believe is .00034 if I did the math right.
