Good on you ditching the the Leaf and getting into a real EV! And supporting a real and progressive company doing all the right things. Seems some just don't get it and never will. oh well. congrats and enjoy some long distance electric Kilometers with no battery degradation issues.

Ignore the FUD out there. people are just not that smart sometimes.

Interesting to see LEAF folks get defensive of Tesla when someone reports lots of facts.

Model 3 is nice, but remember its no where near the price of a LEAF. For 2-3x the price, I sure hope it does something better.

I am not yet certain which Model 3 I am going to buy but it will end up being waaaaay less than 2-3x the price of a LEAF, and it just might last 2-3x longer before (or if ever) it becomes a battery cripple.

Congrats. After owning 3 Leafs, I'm done with Nissan. Their air cooled batteries are a joke, even in temperate climates. I configured my Model 3 on 4/19. Hope to get it by the end of May.

Nissan may be a contender in the far future after their 60 kw batteries have proven to be successful. If it wasn't for the Model 3, I'd probably get a Bolt.

May I remind everybody that this thread exists for OP to sell his LEAF ?
The LEAF can be a fine car -- just not a full-fledged, without limits car.

In that case, shouldn't this thread be moved to classifieds? The title also attracts a Leaf vs Tesla vibe and why one would make the switch.

No hate here either. Good luck with the sale. My 2012 Leaf SL "Pearl" moved to Colorado a few months ago, so I'm hoping the cooler weather extends her life greatly. I got my configuration email 01/04/18, but I'm waiting for the $35,000 base Model 3 late this year. $36,000 - $3750 = $32,250, about the same as I paid for Pearl, with 3X the range and a decent TMS system.

Congrats, OP. When’s delivery? I’m thinking of picking up a Model 3 in 2022. They should be available in my country without a stupid reservation by then. Or maybe something even better will be available (Model Y? A Honda Accord electric? An electric Benz that doesn’t suck?), who knows.

Man, this thread went to crap in a hurry.
