I wish I had generous state or utility rebates to add in but after the $7,500 tax credit I plan to receive I feel a brand new Leaf for net cost of $18,000 is pretty good in the AZ market.
That's interesting - a returned lease that somehow didn't work out? Or maybe a dealer loaner car?

Is that with or without the weather and tech packages?

Seems like a good deal but when you buy used you don't get any of the tax credits or rebates.

The car I bought? It was new on the lot. I saw the sweet deal you got on your 2018 LEAF SV in California. I really wish AZ had additional credits like you guys do out there. Your capped doc fee is pretty nice too!

sorry, user error here! I meant to quote "whistle" who said he bought one used.

First time EV buyer, although I have been eyeing them for a while, the ranges were not feasible where I live. Charging stations are still not very plentiful in some parts of NH either, so seeing Nissan up in the low 200+ miles range peaked my interest. It took a while at the dealership, but the folks answered my (many) questions and found the model, packages, and color/trim I was looking for - along with a decent trade-in of my old Ford. There was plenty of basic information on the car itself, but perhaps a bit more background on charging and setting up the Nissan Pay would have helped a bit.

After driving it for over a month, I'm very pleased with the performance, comfort and range. I'm still fine-tuning driving habits and settings, but pushing the limits to see exactly what my max would be to give me a good solid limit to set myself for ranges... best yet is 228.4 miles driven with 13% left on battery (typically I don't go below 20%) with about 31 miles "left" on the dashboard estimate... that's about as close as I'm comfortable to push. The car came equipped with just about everything on the trim along with the nifty trunk organizer, etc. The only thing I couldn't get was a sunroof!

I had a 240v/50 amp NEMA 14-50 plug installed in the garage so overnight charging is easy, no matter the battery level. I've only done one public charge so far while on a 180-mile roundtrip (just to see how it works). I currently have rooftop solar, so am still working out how this fits into my system capacity - I may end up with a secondary meter to charge the car from the grid at the discounted EV night-time charging rates from my local electric coop and save my solar for the house and winter's lower production. Winter will be another test of the EV here, but having fun so far.

Don’t physically have ours yet, but closed the deal on a red 2018 SV with Tech and Weather packages, and with just 2,601 miles. Getting it from Carvana for $26,861.22.

Total Price:
$26,861.22
(incl. taxes, fees, upgrades)

Carvana Price: $25,100.00
Taxes: $1,615.47
Title/Reg/Fees: $145.75

Delivery on Tuesday! Carfax says the car was originally purchased in St. Louis so I’m hoping the battery won’t be in too bad a shape, especially with the low miles. I already have my OBD dongle and Leaf Spy ready to go, though.

I needed to replace my old commuter vehicle. DC area has one of the worst traffic in the US. I have been watching the EV pricing of vehicles with range of 200+ miles. I am not a Tesla person and I narrowed my choice between the Leaf Plus and Kia Soul EV. Kia decided to delay the release of the Soul EV in the US.

I finally purchased my Gun Metallic (with black interior) SL Plus over the 4th of July weekend. I could not resist the DC area dealer discounts that were being offered. Below are the pricing details:

MSRP: $42,550
Kick Plates: $130
Splash Guards; $200
Mats: $190
Cargo Net: $30
Destination Charge: $895
Total MSRP: $43,995

Sale Price (Reduction): -$4,158
Nissan Incentive: -$1,000
Dealer Online Discount: -$300
Dealer Free Tax, Tags, Title: -67

Free 2 year charging at EVgo, ChargePoint and a couple more providers
Free All-Weather Mats

Waiting for:
Federal Tax Incentive: -$7,500
State of Maryland EV Rebate: -$3,000

Also available State of Maryland rebate for installing home charging station (up to $700).

The dealer told me I just missed the PEPCO (DC metro area electric provider) rebate which ended 30 June 2019. I don't recall the amount.
