Received my quote a few days ago, and I'm definitely added to the group of consumers who are questioning the pricing structure from AV and is researching on alternatives in terms of installation and equipment options.
Not only does it sound like there are alternatives that will provide cheaper installations, but there are also charging stations that are much smarter.
As someone who is interested not only in the environmental and political impact of the Leaf but also the technologies behind the products surrounding it, promise from other companies with a charger with touchscreen display where you can schedule charging times and review charging history is much more tempting.
I'm eagerly waiting for the competitors to offer alternatives. Meanwhile, here's the quote that I was given:
custom installation * 1,401.95
charging dock, wall mount 15' cable * 721.12
installation permit and processing 250.00
shipping and delivery 49.95
sales tax * US$73.49
