Leaf leases are the best way for typical EV drivers to buy a Leaf. I'm kind of tired of explaining why, so someone else can do it this time.
Such as those who don't have a tax load big enough to take advantage of the $7,500 tax credit? Exactly.
and to the Gentleman who bought his 2013 he paid full price for it.. no discounts from Nissan to buyout the lease for much less, in the end I paid less than $16,500 for my 2015 leaf by leasing it and buying it out before the end of the lease. Had I bought it with cash I would not have been able to get the tax credit in full and i don't know any dealerships able to sell a leaf for that price.
