Yes, they are practically giving this car away due to government incentives. Given that total cost of ownership is much cheaper than a gas car, many more people should be leasing these cars.

Term: 24 Months
Annual Mileage: 12,000
Down Payment: $1,995
S Lease Based on an MSRP of $29,870 (including destination charge) for a 2013 Nissan Leaf S excluding first payment, tax, title, license, bank and dealer fees.
Fine print says drive off costs $3,600 according to post #19 from Rokkyu.

To get this deal you will need to price match (PM) with your local dealer. Mine did.

The EPA range improvement for the 2013 model is quite impressive. Was 73 and is now 84 miles by old testing format. And the improvement is even better in cold weather conditions. http://green.autoblog.com/2013/02...y-84-in-n/

if one is considering the leaf, it would seem safer to lease than buy. considering the costs are dropping as the technology matures, the cost of a new car has already dropped significantly this year.

ie, if you OWN the car, your resale value just took a big hit. much safer leasing it to protect from that drop in value.

That, and spark plugs, timing belt, gaskets, hoses, coolant, filters. So about $200 per year, but you were close.

Not to mention the $1200 you save in fuel every year, compared to Corolla.
Well if you're counting the once in a decade engine overhaul stuff, then you'll have to include the battery cost then.

Leaf uses coolant also.

$3 to charge these. Do your research people, a standard commuter car for those who dont live ridiculous distances from work. A lease on one of these is a no brainer.

Electric companies should get smarter. If they simply lower their rates to dirt cheap, it would get people hook on EVs. Then once there's enough EVs out there, slowly raise rates. Similar to what the oil industry did a few time. I recall in 2001/2002 a gallon of gas was about $1. They killed the development of alternative fuel vehicle.

Then after people are hook, development would improve greatly (cheaper, longer range, etc.). And those who are already comfortable with EVs will remain a customer.

So, per month, gas would be costing me about $203. Electricity is costing me about $30. I am, therefore, saving about $173 per month, just on fuel (not including the savings on maintenance).

I leased a leaf last time it was posted on slickdeals.

This car is farking amazing. Anyone saying otherwise is plain stupid.

They are afraid of change, they are afraid of math, and maybe just outright afraid of numbers.

The savings are endless, the car is a great drive, and the parking up front is, well, a bonus.

LMAO I don't even pay to charge, so it's free to drive.

WHeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
