There should be some killer deals on 2019's coming soon, or if the tax rebates won't help you, then 2016 and 2017's fall in that price range,, or used 2018's if you are willing to finance a bit.
If you can wait a few months you could pick up a 2019 40 kWh as low as 25k or better depending on trim. Subtract off rebates and tax credits and you could be down around 15k for a brand new Leafy.
I can wait a few months for a better deal. I do not like to rely on getting a tax credit in the future to justify a higher price that would require me to finance now, but I would do it under the scenario you describe with a new 40 kWh Leaf.
I have been dismayed at the prices for the used ~2018 Leaf, Ioniq and Bolts in Northern CA.
Keep in mind that carmax will move inventory and the price stays the same. So if you find a good deal that price will follow the vehicle, though you might have a fee for moving it.
Though I agree the price for a used 2018 is at the point where, if you can use and qualify for the rebates and tax credits, you do almost as well buying new. Also check the warranty - at some point Nissan made the warranty better. Not sure if it was 2018 or before that.
I simply borrow from myself and then pay back the credit so I did not finance the 7500 tax credit portion. As an example, last may I was able to get a 2018 SV with tech and weather for just about 15,540 after rebates and credits where I live. New.
