Re: Advice needed for a 2nd leaf

Tue Oct 10, 2017 11:51 am

Not to throw this off of a Leaf discussion, but for longer range as we all know now the new 2018 Leaf will have a lot longer range, also I've been watching the Tesla S used market like and I see a fair amount in the higher 30's to lower 40's coming of 1st lease - range is typically 200-300 on those cars. Might be a good way to go and not need a 3rd car.

unfortunately some of the 16's and 17's are deteriorating rapidly. I would not feel comfortable with that decision even with a lease. Suggest holding off until spring when the new 40kw Leaf will be out for the same price as the outgoing 30kw.
