We have a Leaf on order (2019 SL Plus) that should be arriving within the first two weeks of October. The dealer is telling us that the MSRP is $44,630 and if we finance through Nissan, there is a $1,000 discount. Other dealers in the area are discounting ("Dealer discount") Leaf's another $2,900 (same model, similar options, different color). Do we have any hope of getting more discounts? Thank you for your thoughts.
That sounds pretty high. Since you're in WA, any chance of you trying out dealers in King or Pierce counties? I lived in WA state for over 9 years.
For reference (this might not help you that much), 238 mile EPA rated Bolts are heavily discounted here in CA: https://www.concordchevrolet.com/Vehicl ... rice%7Casc
. Tax credit on GM EVs/PHEVs is only $3750 (vs. $7500 for Nissans) and that's until end of this month. On 10/1/19, it goes to $1875 on GM EVs/PHEVs. Unfortunately, choice of colors is slim since I'm pretty sure production ended on '19 Bolts and GM's on strike now anyway. 2020 Bolt will have 259 mile EPA range rating.
The dealer I bought my Bolt from seems to have gotten an infusion of LT trims: https://www.chevroletoffremont.com/Vehi ... rice%7Casc
I currently see 20 LT and 41 Premier there. At one point, I think they had under 10 LT's, possibly 1 or 0. I'm no fan of black (wouldn't buy a car that color), but I currently see a MSRP $38,900 LT with DC FC inlet for $29,400 before $3750 Federal tax credit. Obviously, this is modestly equipped vs. a '19 Leaf SL Plus. You'd want to compare Premier trims with more equipment to be closer but keeping in mind Bolt doesn't have certain features at all like adaptive cruise control, ProPilot equivalent nor nav system. You either use CarPlay, Android Auto or you can get some turn-by-turn directions via OnStar (have to pay for subscription for that. I use Waze, Google Maps and Apple Maps via CarPlay.
