Tony, What's your mileage? I suppose that's a good price considering you do have high mileage on your Leaf. I can't recall for sure but didn't you recently do a long drive for an event?
I doubt we would get anywhere near $23k in the SF Bay Area. If there are a higher concentration of EVs in a particular micro segment of the market (like the Bay Area), then the trade-in prices are much worse, I would imagine...
It was 25,300 miles at sale. I did drive from Mexico to Canada, June 12-20, 2012
, however that was with the current car that I leased May 27, 2012. The car that I sold would not have completed that trip do to battery degradation.
I don't know that you have more LEAFs per capita than we do in San Diego. I don't have super accurate LEAF data, but I think we're around 1000 LEAFs, and you have about 2500.
3,100,000 / 1000 = 1 LEAF in San Diego per 3,100 people
4500 / 1000 = 1 LEAF per 4.5 square miles
(We have a lot of desert)
7,100,000 / 2500 = 1 LEAF in San Fran Bay Area per 2850 people
7000 / 2500 = 1 LEAF per 2.8 square miles
