They have had crazy pricing for a couple years mainly driven by the fact that there were better EV options at the price they were asking, e.g., e500, Soul, Golf. I think pricing will remain low to move a dated model with sub-par Nav. With a new model competitive with the Bolt and Model 3, we will see similar pricing for Nissan.
I am more than willing to dispute your claim... care to post any examples from any period of 2015 or the first half of 2016?
or should I say simply "well is MUCH crazier now!"
The sales have more than doubled the last 2 months of 2016 and I suspect Jan (a traditionally slow month) will be even better...
A month or two before the first 2016 model arrived (and when news about it was similarly scarce), you could buy a new 2015 SV with LED + Charge package (so LED headlights, QC port, hybrid heater) for $25k (before any tax credits). Oh, and financed at 0% for up to 6 years as I recall.
They continued this sale for the 2016 model too, but I think low gas prices also contributed to this.
I'm unaware of any current sales going on (not in the market now ) so I can't judge the level of fire sale. But it's not unprecedented to have deep discounts offered.
