Battery capacity is measured in kWh, not "kw". You're talking about 40 kWh Leafs. 40 kWh Leaf has a 110 kW motor. See https://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa ... -press-kit.gene wrote:I was so surprised to see that nobody has mentioned this incredible incentive for new 40 kw Leaf's.
The offer is good at authorized Nissan dealerships and runs through April 1, or while vehicle supplies last, whichever comes first. Customers can find a nearby dealership using Nissan’s dealer locator - Opens in new window tool."
The problem with the Niro is that it's overpriced. Base model is $40k. At that price, I'd rather have a Tesla.danrjones wrote:
I keep hoping to see a Kia Niro EV at a dealer but none yet...
Anyway, link below to the SCE flyer.

Not sure if a Bolt is something you'd consider and I don't know the reputation of this dealer, but I see some discounting at https://www.avchevy.com/inventory/new-C ... t-bolt_ev/. One can go to https://www.chevrolet.com/electric/bolt ... -and-price to learn about the 2 trim levels and the available equipment.danrjones wrote:The 3500 off "deal" has been extended - and includes 2500 off a Leaf plus for SCE customers.
But the fine print on the flyer does say "off MSRP" so that indeed may not prove be very useful.
I already noticed a dealer in Santa Clarita offering a dealer discount of 3000 before any negotiating, including leaf plus.
I will say I was in AV Nissan in Palmdale and they definitely seemed like they wanted to sell a leaf to me, but I wasn't ready to talk offers.
But then they still had 4 or 5 SV's from 2018 sitting on their lot!
For my area you can currently get:
7500 FED credit
2500 state rebate
$1000 SCE rebate
$3000 Kern Air Rebate
*$3500/$2500 Nissan SCE off MSRP
That last one, I would think I would want to negotiate lower than 3500 below MSRP anyway, so I doubt they would allow it.
Especially on a Leaf plus, An SV with Tech and Weather pack comes out to $42105 MSRP before dealer add-ons!!
Anyway, in my area that's 14000 of REAL credits and rebates, 17500/16500 if somehow you use the Nissan SCE deal
Almost makes buying a leaf worth while, depending on how much you can talk them down on your own.
But my area is HOT and who knows how the plus battery will survive?
I'd imagine Bolt is eligible for the other non-Nissan specific incentives (SCE and Kern air). Bolt is definitely eligible for CVRP. You can also limit the % the Bolt charges up to on '19 Bolts. It's basically 40% to 100% in 5% increments.Do not allow the vehicle to remain in
temperature extremes for long
periods without being driven or
plugged in. It is recommended that
the vehicle be plugged in when
temperatures are below 0 °C (32 °F)
and above 32 °C (90 °F) to
maximize high voltage battery life.
I am not either. 3/3 of previous GM vehicles in our family (it wasn't my $ nor my decision to buy them back then) weren't so good in terms of reliability.danrjones wrote:I'm honestly not a big GM fan.
How does anyone know what the Niro's price is? They haven't announced it yet for the U.S., and if the announced Canadian prices after conversion to U.S. dollars hold up, it's a great deal.danrjones wrote:I'm honestly not a big GM fan. I actually think the leaf looks nicer than the bolt. Plus the tax credit makes a difference. There is the battery issue though.
I agree the niro ev is over priced. But then aren't all EVs ? A dealer near me still has 2018 leaf's new on the lot and has only dtipped them 3000 off msrp. I can do better than that on a 2019! The kona ev is also over priced. I'm curious to see how the niro ev holds up.
