Leafs (and other EV's) from MOTARRA

Fri Jun 03, 2016 11:48 pm

We are a startup focused on making it easier, less expensive and more fun to buy a used car. More to come...we are in the very early phases of ramping up our business. We've put three cars up for auction on eBay and have many more in the pipeline. The three cars on offer now are basically there so we can test all our back office systems. When/if we sell one of these cars we'll actually have a live order to run through our DMS (dealer management system). Contact us if you'd like to be one of our very first victims.

We hope to have our website (beta) up this week and we may share it with the community here first for feedback before makeing it visible to the general public.

Here are the three active auctions:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/122000722382?ss ... 1555.l2649

It's a bit late, so that's it for now. Thanks for your interest and any feedback / input regarding selling pre-owned Leaf's and other EV's.

When listing SV and SL model Leafs, it would be helpful to say whether it's a "Base" or "Premium Package" version. It looks like the SV listed above (last link) is a Base.

Hi Leftie, Thanks for the input...we'll do that going forward. Putting a few more up today.

Looks like we sold one (assuming the bidder follows thru which is never guaranteed on eBay Motors). Unfortunately we'll make nothing on the sale if it actually happens at $6999, but it will give us a beta customer to run thru our DMS software which automates the purchase agreement and other paperwork related to the sale.

Separately do any of the folk here have any input regarding how to reach potential Leaf buyers? We have a plan and we're working on rolling out our digital strategy. We're open to any and all input from the community here.

Thank you,
TEAM MOTARRA

That might be confusing as there is no "base" model, just SV , SV with Premium, or SV with QC or SV with QC and Premium. If you designate something as "base" model, casual consumers will probably assume it is equipped like an "S" model with no options. I would stick to the same designations that Nissan uses to eliminate confusion.

As long as the listing mentions whether or not the car has the Premium Package and/or QC, it doesn't matter what term they use. Helping bidders and buyers be sure what they are getting will reduce back-outs.

I suggest you list the year, model, and options/accessories. Nissan changed some of the option package combinations available as time progressed (even in the middle of model year production). Features to list include: DCQC port, LED headlights, cruise control, Bose sound system (includes 4 exterior cameras and is also known as the premium package), and 17-inch wheels. You should also mention the cold weather package (heated seats and steering wheel) on 2011s since that package came late in the production run.

Thanks for your input Gerry and all. We only offer 2013 and newer Leafs so that makes it a little easier. We'll be sure to specifiy the important details for each car when the website launches.

We have several sources. We've been quietly running into one problem after another trying to launch. This weekend we expect to put a dozen or more Leaves online for sale. They will be mostly S models which make a great and cost effective commuter. All with 12 bars. Will post the links here.
