I also spent a lot of time reading around this forum and learning a lot of things about the car and various models/years/options/etc, so thank you all for the collective knowledge. I went shopping on a whim when I had Veteran's Day off, and ended up buying a car!

Our car: 2013 SV with Quick Charge (04/13 build), 24k miles, 12 capacity bars (not sure yet if I'll splurge for LeafSpy), and overall in really great shape. Still all shiny with the new car smell! So far I just love it, and I am having FUN driving it! I'm in the process of getting permission to charge at work, which will add a little extra to the financial benefit too. I'm hoping it holds up alright in the Florida climate.

For those still shopping or thinking of selling soon, we paid $7650 + $640 dealer fee so $8290.



Nice, and congratulations! I myself am an owner of a 2012 Volt that I purchased two months ago. I had to have some brake/rotor work done, and now I'm happy (mostly) with the car. I am obsessed over looking at a Leaf, and am trying to convince the wife that a third car (the Leaf I want) would be a good purchase. I might be up for a trade on a new model if the 7500 rebate is still in play.

I already have a Level 2 charging station for the Volt, and I love not having to stop for gas. I believe that I can make most of my driving work with the Leaf. My only worries are winter driving. I live near Charlotte, NC and have a 35 mile round trip commute to work. We plan on trading in one of our cars soon for the Model 3 Tesla or Chevy Bolt.

Again, congratulations...hopefully I'll be posting soon about my own purchase!

We got it. 2016 Red SV. Brand new. Equivalent US funds of 22186 dollars.

Angela and I wanted to thank our American neighbours for responding to so many of our questions over the last year. The car should be a good fit for us as really we only need about 120 KM of range max. Typically our cars last us about 10 years. Hopefully this one will too This almost makes us an electric only family as our other car is a 2015 Smart ED.

I am going to post this in a separate thread as well as we still have a few questions and don't want to stray from the theme of this thread.

Here is a picture. Not sure if this is the exact car but it is the same colour.

24kWh or 30kWh model? Weird that rear windows are not tinted. That is standard equipment for SV/SL in Europe.
Short range EVs <30kWh -- Medium range: 30-60kWh -- Long range: >60kWh
Charging: Trickle <3kW -- Normal 3-22kW -- Fast 50-100kW -- Supercharging >100kW

My reply post seems to have dissapeared so I'll type it again.

It is a 30 KW 2016 Leaf. I don't know much about tinting but we are in British Columbia Canada. Curious as to why you thought we were in europe.

Cheers.

not your fault. forum should have required it. if you feel its a security compromise, you can generalize. I used to list my location as "The Southernmost Apex of Puget Sound" but realized that wasn't obscuring anything.... then I thought "hmmm, maybe I should have picked a different username?" ;)
