Those go to auction.
Apparently quite a few of those are being exported to Norway.
Yep on the 1st point and most likely on most of the lease returns.
Yep, some have ended up in Norway but it's unclear what the numbers really are.
At the beginning, IIRC, if one wanted to lease a Leaf, only 3-year leases were possible. Nissan added 2-year leases long ago.
Mine will very likely be turned in at the end of my 2 year/24K mile lease as the residual is nutty (too high). If Nissan gives $5K off the residual AND I can apply for $2500 CVRP (2 year leases are ineligible), that might change my mind. I did get snail mail about extending my lease for another year.... if I can do that AND get CVRP, I might.
Re: DaveinOlyWA, I don't recall his personal situation but from skimming http://daveinolywa.blogspot.com/2013/12 ... 8-you.html
, it looks like he returned his '11 at the end of the lease.
