Ha, yes... Actually got the VIN number today for it,... Things are finally starting to come together,... It's been a long time running...

I have a 2 or 3 other people interested in my e-golf deposit, I just need to call the dealership and arrange that... It's too bad, the e-golf is a nice looking car as well and you get leatherette without having to buy the high end model, wish Nissan did that...



Good and congrats! Yes it is but I really wanted all the tech too. No regrets in ordering my 2018 Leaf SL with all the bells. My delivery eta is end of May for now. Hope I get a VIN within the next month or so too.

Lease term didn't seem too bad,... I think I will be leasing to purchase in the end the buyout residual is ~$15k canadian dollars, or upgrade to something else with a 4wd electric model would be ideal... Who knows what cars 2021 will have out there...


I don't see what model you are getting. If you get an SV and still want leather, let me know. It might prod me to order an SL to get the Around View, and we can then swap seats. What part of Canada are you in?

Yeah I got the SV, the thing that turned me off the SL model was the stupid amplifier position... I needed that trunk floor to be bare in order to fit my 4x10" bass amp cabinet...

Anyhow, I'd most likely take your offer if I wasn't leasing... that kind of limits the amount of mods I'm able to do... Hit me up in 3 years if I end up buying it out at the end of the lease :)

I'd also be leasing with the semi-intent to buy. We could always agree to swap back after three years, if necessary...?

My dealer doesn't even want to give me an estimate on when I will get my Leaf. I put a pre-order in early January of this year. Either demand is sky-high on this car, or they have production issues.

Nationally demand is still outstripping production. Nissan is still filling the pipeline to fill dealer lots. I don't think there re any production ramp issues, it just turns out that it is a very well received car, and interest is very high.

Of course the downside of this popularity is that discounts are very limited.

As best I can tell, going by car color/configuration, our local Leaf certified dealers have delivered two pre-orders, and each has one Leaf SL sitting in stock, not moving. One dealer tried very hard to sell me theirs, and failed. I don't think it would be hard for them and Nissan to get more cars in stock, so I'm assuming that demand is in fact very low here.

The demand is in the S, but supply will bulk up soon, the NE is a big focus this year.

By Memorial Day weekend? If I knew there would be a lot of cars in stock then, I'd try less hard to order one this month.

Speaking of which, you might be able to answer this: I have a "reservation" for a loaded red SV. Can I use that reservation, but "upgrade" to a loaded red SL? When I made it there was no indication that Around View would be limited to the SL.

I placed my order in later February and was told end of May timing for delivery. May slip into June, which is fine for me. I'm dealing with Alta Nissan in Woodbridge, one of the top Leaf dealers in the country.
