2018 Order status updated

Tue Jan 23, 2018 12:01 pm

Got an an email from my Nissan dealer this morning that our 2018 Leaf is scheduled for a January production date! They said we can expect to have our vehicle in 4-6 weeks - which is well ahead of the predicted April delivery date.

We are still not "committed" as we only put a $500 deposit down to get on the list. We don't finalize the contract until the dealer holds their Leaf Pre-Launch event in February.

We are in Ontario, Canada for reference and ordered the SV trim.

Thank you for the update. Much appreciated. Can you give us an idea of the pre tax pre incentive price you paid. We are in BC but it would still be useful to know. In Canadian dollars of course.

Thanks.

Awesome! When did you place your deposit, and what dealer did you order through?
I am in Peterborough, and ordered an SV in late October.

We don't have any specifics as far as price goes yet. This will be discussed once the dealer has their test drive event in February.

We are in Kingston and placed our deposit in October as well. Hopefully you get an update soon as well!

Now onto looking into chargers and a possible panel upgrade...eeep.

I'm already getting emails from Nissan promoting a $229/month lease deals with $3900 down. I can't afford that, but it doesn't seem too bad if you're in the market and have the cash.

Do we have to first select a dealer in order to put down the deposit?
In 2009 we placed our deposit with Nissan., and only in 2010 did we have to select the dealer. That helped us negotiate a better deal.

Any advice on getting the best deal buying a 2018 SL?

Thanks

At this point your best bet is to take a copy of the national lease offer to your dealer, and ask them to do a little better. Given a clean slate, almost all dealers will come up with a worse deal than the national one. Just remember to calculate the total cost over the life of the lease for each offer, including all fees but ignoring the residual and money factor. If the deal looks almost good, then look at the money factor.

Do we have any idea what Lease rates/residuals and depreciation costs and all that fun stuff are yet?

The Chevy Bolt was depressing, GM quoted me with 34% residual over 3 years and 30% residual for 4 years... At that point, might as well buy the car instead of leasing...

Hoping to see some better numbers with the Leaf!

I should point out, I'm located in South Western Ontario Canada.

The 2018 Leaf residual is the 32% for 3/12,000miles. This is based on their current US lease offer where they clearly state the residual. I'm not sure if there is a difference in residual between Canada and the U.S.

The Bolt now have factory incentives to bring down the Cap cost and the Nissan won't until they need to at some point in the future.

Right now, unfortunately, unless you are getting the S, the lease rate for a SV or SL will be about the same if not worse.
