2020 Leaf SV, 149 mile range version.
Cheap with all the Nissan rebates & Federal & State tax credits. Blue. Love it so far. Traded in a '16 Ford Focus Electric which is a great-handling car but low range and probably about to get repair costs in the years ahead.

Hoping Nissan doesn't go under so the long warranty stays intact.

Just got my first EV... 2020 SV with Tech and Weather packages.

Got a very good deal just before year end and am so excited.

This is my first EV and after 30 years of car buying, easily the most nicely equipped car I've ever had.

I'm having a blast checking out all of the tech and safety features and learning about the car and it is such a smooth drive.

Howdy all.

I've been stalking the forums for a while but I finally have a Leaf. Just leased a 2020 SV+ w/Tech and All weather packages. I also have a 2015 Chevy Volt.

I was planning to get the standard SV w/Tech and All Weather but their weren't any available in my local area. I reached out to some dealers that were further away and received some decent quotes, but in the end, I was able to work out a pretty good deal at a local dealership on the +.

Cool car!

Leasing is the best way to buy an EV if you don't qualify for the Federal tax credit.

Yup. I toyed with the idea of doing some 401k-Roth conversion to increase my tax liability to make the EV credit work, but I'm hoping the Ariya in 2 years, or similar sized EV is our next 10+ year-owned car. So I leased the leaf for 2 years. Hope my wife's 10 year old car lasts that long, or she might just fall in love with the Leaf like I have, and will sell it sooner so that we are back to the 2 cars we need. Have 2015 Pathfinder for long trips and family outings and hoping commuting 8 miles each way with the leaf instead of the pathfinder will slow the latter's aging process, which has accelerated lately (only 62k miles but feels older to be honest).

First time ever doing a lease, I am nervous, bought a hatchback sized car cover and ordered the clear protection film for the charger door.

Anyway, Dark Blue SV with Weather and Tech packages, took delivery 12/28/2020.
