WetEV, eMobility in the comments challenged his assertion about starting capacity, believing it to be 77.5kWh, not 75
"Beliefs" are for trolls. Bjorn measured the usable capacity of his P85 Model S when it was new, and used that as the base for comparison.

Heh. Depending on incentives from Nissan, it might be possible for someone who doesn't qualify for most of the $7500 Federal credit to use that lease to buy an SV, but that's speculation.

I am no lease expert but it looks like a good deal (details below) for a 40 kWh LEAF SV. The first trick to be aware of though is that only three cars are offered at this price; the other 30 - 40 SV Leafs on the lot are a different price ..

The car price is ~ $31.9k after dealer discount
~ $10,500 is paid by Nissan if the car is leased

Lease deal:
~ $1350 cash (or trade-in) from customer
$100 a month for 24 months
TTL is extra; I am not sure whether finance charges are included in the $100 a month payment

About the residual -- I am unsure if the car price is the msrp or (msrp - dealer cash). If the latter, then
31,900 - 24*100 - 10,650 - 1350 = $17,500
If the residual is calculated from msrp then the residual would be
35,775 - 24*100 - 10,650 - 1350 = $22,475

And here I thought our $182/month was a good deal back in 2013. If you maintain your car well, 100/month is pretty cheap wheels.

If the residual is $17.5k it's a good way to buy a 40kwh Leaf, after leasing it. It's basically the residual I have, with a 2/3 lower payment and a 2/3 lower down payment.
