...It's surprising for at the same time, as it seems like these lower prices paid by dealers at dealer auctions don't seem to come through to the retail prices though. In the lower part of the image, there is the estimate of a retail price of $14,200 on average (possibly with roughly 18,000 odometer) and an estimated "below average" retail price of $12,950 (possibly with roughly 27,000 odometer). As of today, Saturday, June 20, according to autotrader.com, there seem to be exactly 7 2013 Nissan Leaf with the SL trim below $14,000 for sale in the whole state of California, and the absolutely lowest is $13,500 for a SL with 27,000 miles at Nissan Sunnyvale, all other ones are more like $13,900 and $13,999.
So as the average estimated retail of the 2013 Nissan Leaf SL was supposed to be $14,200, where all those that are below the average?...
The nationwide used BEV market is distorted by regional differences in new/used incentives.
California, where you are looking, has a substantial rebate on new BEV sales ($2,500) which tends to depress used BEV prices, both by reducing the price of new BEVs, and encouraging BEV owners to dump their used LEAFs on the market and collect another $2,500 (+ $7,500 FTC, of course) after only a few years.
But California also has a non-$ incentive on sales of used BEVs, the white HOV sticker, that might be keeping prices a little bit higher than the national average.
The lowest prices reported on this forum seem to be from the price depression in the region around Georgia where there are large incentives ($5k) on new BEV sales, at least for Another 10 days.
IIRC, one Sacramento LEAF buyer on this forum mentioned that he got a better deal than he could get near home by looking in the foothills.
If I were trying to sell my LEAF for the best price, I might try to market it in a part of CA with the worst traffic, and greatest demand for a pass into the HOV lanes.
And if I were a CA buyer trying to find the best deal, I'd be looking where there are no HOV lanes nearby.
