Canada : 2013 availability and price

i'm wanting to purchase a 2013 Leaf but can't get any firm delivery dates. I wonder if there will be rationing of cars this year and if this effects the price. If there is limited selection and a long wait for delivery I may look at a Prius instead.

I assume if there is more demand than supply, dealer list will be what the selling price is ?

Location? Many markets have sufficient supply, not saturated, but sufficient. Others have little to no stock. Our local dealer has only one for show and it's been that way for about a year (before that it was zero). Trades with other dealers is common and we get most of ours through Portland. Things should start to move more quickly soon, as there have been reports of more sales, probably due to increased production at TN plant.

I obviously should have mentioned my location. Sorry. I live near Victoria, BC.

No 2013's have shown up in this part of the world. I'm hoping for a good supply with various colours and options but that may be just a pipe dream. It's frustrating because if they were available I'd go to the dealer tomorrow and buy one.

Nissan still hasn't given a firm date, but on Twitter, on June-17, they said the 2013 LEAF would be available in July in Canada.
As for what options & how many will be available, at what price, anyone's guess would be as good as mine... My guess would be: limited quantity, selling at MSRP, with limited options (trim vs color) to choose from. Kinda like the initial Canadian launch.

I just wanted to say that I would go and buy one tomorrow as well if we could get anywhere near the deals they are giving in the US.

Hopefully Nissan is listening.

Currently a 2012 SV with the $8,500 incentive in Ontario used as a down payment is $527.17 a month for a 36 month lease.

I am also waiting to hear, we should be able to order by the end of the month. I am in touch with few sales guys. Shoot me a PM with your email if you wanna join forces and try to get a cheaper price together when buying! I am in Victoria as well.

Campus Nissan is the only choice unless going to Duncan or Nanaimo. I understood that there is only one sales guy at Campus who knows about EVs.

As to price I can't see it being other than MSRP. The big gas price increase we got today can only mean more demand for Leafs ( Leaves ?? )

Many other options including lower mainland....

Last time I bought a car, I emailed every single dealership with my offer and needed up buying from maple ridge. I offer $500 above carcostcanada invoice price... Seemed to work last time.

Today I was actually able to reserve a Red SL that has been ordered already. They are waiting for final freight cost and financing details but its reserved for me. It is on its way to the dealership and should be here before the end of the month!
