I bought a Nissan Leaf this afternoon at Stevens Creek Nissan in Santa Clara, California. I got a white SV with the Tech Package and Protection Package (I think that's the front and rear bumper clear protection). It was 36,930 (before tax and doc fee etc). I just bought it (rather than leasing it) because my commute is around 20,000 miles/year.

I didn't haggle to bring the price down or anything - perhaps I could have. But I'm pretty happy with the car.

I assume that you knew, but didn't mind because you live in California, that the heated seats, heated steering wheel, and heatpump are part of an additional package?

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Right, they had some SV's on the lot that had an All Weather package I think that was something like an additional $900. As you say I live in California and didn't think I'd need it so I didn't get that package.

What will your net cost be after sales tax doc fee and rebates?

So here is the exact price break down for the 2019 Nissan Leaf SV with Tech Package that I bought on 3/2/2019 at Stevens Creek Nissan in Santa Clara California

Cash Price of Vehicle : $36,930
Document Processing Charge: $85
Sales Tax: $3331.35
Electronic Vehicle Registration: $30
Vehicle License Fee: $240
Titling Fees: $258
California Tire Fee: $7

So Adding all that up gives $40,881.35

Now from a rebates/credits perspective I plan to file for:
$7500 Electric Car tax credit
$800 Clean Fuel Rebate from Pacific Gas and Electric

So if I subtract off the tax credit + clean fuel rebate that makes 40,881.35-7500-800 = 32581.35

I could have financed the car to get the Nissan captive cash $1000 rebate (they offered me that) and I could have paid it off early etc. My main goal was to just get the car buying experience over with as quickly as I could, pay cash for the car, and get on with driving it. But if I'd haggled perhaps I could have saved some money (maybe?) and if I'd gone with the financing I could have gotten the Nissan Captive Cash rebate. One boat I missed was that a few months back Pacific Gas and Electric (PG and E ) had a $3000 rebate available for Nissan Leafs but that expired in January
