more than outright buying it, but less than the time value of the $7500, IMHO.
Keep in mind if you purchase it, you also have to pay interest and sales tax on that $7500 as well.

or, you can leave the lease in place as well, with the purchase option at the end of the 36 months.

Here in mass do we have any other tax credits besides the fed $7500?

Nothing in Massachusetts.

I had read about pending legislation to eliminate sales tax for EVs and charging equipment but it looks like it has some baggage in the form of agreeing to a new "vehicle miles traveled" tax (since we won't be paying gas taxes.)

It's a bit out-of-date ("Hearing scheduled for 05/12/2011") so I assume nothing has happened with it. I guess I should contact my state senator...

FWIW... I went to my local (Keene NH) Nissan dealer Saturday to ask a couple of questions. Near the end of our converastion he told me that they were expecting two LEAFs to arrive in a couple of weeks. I think that makes it the first week in December (week of Dec 5). One of those LEAFs is their Demo car and the other is a customer's car. (Not me, though I'd like to know who. I might even know the person.) He said it was on their "drop sheet" and "usually cars with a date on that arrive within a couple days of that date". He also told me that those cars were coming in to Newport and being shipped from there.

It isn't 100% electric if you have to put gas in it.

My dashboard was just updated from "Month of January" to "Week of January 9, 2012"

Things are getting more and more real.

Just checked mine and it is still: "Month of January"
Ok, I'm officially jealous!

I was just in a Advanced AutoParts and ask him what they carry for the LEAF. Zilch! Looks like the cabin filter might be able to be ordered.
Got the usual range questions, charging times etc from the folks behind the counter.

I got my first test drive this weekend -- our dealer got their demo car (a red one) on Friday.

If anyone is still having problems ordering one...Johnson Nissan in Pittsfield, MA (way out west) has their act together with a knowledgeable Leaf specialist on staff and four charging stations installed.

My Schneider EVLink is installed and preparations are almost complete in my garage/car nursery (I've likened the preparations to that of a new baby's arrival)...

Now to wait until the week of January 9th.
