My 2018 Leaf SL has a manufacturer date on the the door of 5/18.
Just a stupid question.......
Does anyone know from that date approximately the earliest a car would be for sale and on the road?

LOL.....no
Just trying to figure out what my car was used for before I bought it. I purchased it in the middle of August and it had 35,000 kms on it. I think it was for sale at least around a month on the lot before I bought it so I guess it couldn't have been on the road more than 1 year which means pretty heavy driving.

All I can say is my car says manufacture of 10/14, and I bought it the same month. It was fairly new to the lot; still had some of the plastic on it.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

My guess is that it usually takes nearly a month for a car to go from the last manufacturing step to being for sale on a dealership lot. In some cases it may only take a couple of weeks.

Are the Canadian LEAFs made in the States? Might add a little time, what with The Wall construction. :lol:
