That was your 2013 S??? Do you mean that was the contract residual, or that was as low as NMAC would go on a buy out? The residual on my 2013 SV was about $18K, but NMAC offered me the vehicle for somewhat above $7K.

So is that 40 kWh? 45 kWh? Probably 40 with aero improvements does it. The only benefit of a 60 kWh is longevity - having the 150 miles for more years. Not an issue for leases but (hopefully) it will eventually make financial sense to buy EVs


well about 6½ years ago, I blogged that I would buy a LEAF when it had 36 kwh because I figured that would be my price/performance/convenience point for a long term commitment but that was before the reality of degradation so I have adjusted to 40ish. Maybe 40 if the price is compelling but likely closer to 45...

no, I mean my 2016 S30. I turned down an offer to buy my 2013 for $5800. The residual on the 2013 was just over $12,000

This was my payoff option which expired the day before my first lease payment. My lease was a zero drive off that included a $149.75 overpayment on registration fees from the dealer so my real out of pocket expense would have been $17,588.82
