2018 Leaf SL Firesale?

Mon Oct 22, 2018 3:32 pm

Saw this on Carbuzz:

“With the introduction of the larger battery, it appears that the top version of the 40-kWh Leaf is being sandwiched out. That would seem to make sense, because few buyers would be interested in shelling out $37,000 for a Leaf SL with the 40-kWh battery instead of $36,000 for a Leaf S with the 60-kWh pack. It may be bad news for those keen on getting the best-equipped version, though, as it means the only Leaf SL (positioned above the S and SV versions) will come in at a rather handsome $42,500, coming standard with the bigger battery.”

If so not unreasonable to expect deep discounts on 40 KWh Leaf SLs.

I don't think this would be true. If you think of the analogy of a car with both 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder options, the fully loaded 4 cylinder price would over lap with the base 6. It allows the automaker to give people the choice depending on their preferences. Do they want the extra amenities and features and not care about the extra performance or vice versa.
