So last Saturday I took Sonoma Clean Power up on their rebate offer ($2000 plus $8500 in dealer and Nissan incentives) and went and bought a brand new red 2017 SL. A fitting replacement for my 2002 Subaru, which has a broken catalytic converter and a registrstion due soon
So far it's pretty cool. I don't know if the Solar Panel is useful or not but I'm glad I have it. I never thought I'd own a car with leather seats but those are pretty cool too.
I did a lot of research and test drove an e-golf which I liked a lot but the VW dealer with the clean power deal didn't have the color I wanted and I liked the leafs color and the fact it didn't look like all the other cars. The only thing the really bugs me about the LEAF is that it doesn't have CarPlay which the e-Golf and of course the 2018 LEAF does. The Nissan Connect system is pretty lousy bit my Subaru just had a radio and a cd player so even the crappy NissanConnect is quite the upgrade.
I live in a condo with a parking garage so I can't charge at home but Luckily there is a free public charging station in the parking lot where I work and where I work is only 11 miles away from home. So all in all I think I got a pretty good deal even if I didn't get Apple CarPlay.
And did I mention the cool solar panel?
