Model 3 starts at $49k currently, but the $35k version should be available early next year.
I paid $35,200 for my 2012 Nissan Leaf SV ($38,700 in 2018 USD). A 2018 Leaf SL starts at $36,200. It's going to be hard to justify a new Leaf over a new Model 3 at these prices. But for basic transportation, the $29,900 Leaf S might make sense for some people.
I am on my second Leaf now.
According to your signature (2013 Leaf SV - lease ended, 2016 Leaf S30), you appear to lease your Leafs. If it does what you need it to do, and the price is right, then this makes sense to me. I definitely wish I could go back in time and lease instead of buy my Leaf. I tend to keep my cars for a long time. The car I traded in for my Leaf was 13 years old. The Leaf just isn't going to last that long because the battery degradation is too terrible. But that's not much of an issue when you're leasing.
