$30k Starting MSRP.


Sold prices on eBay shows that 2016 are selling for $15k or less...


I'm not TDing, just sharing information that I use to consider investments. Good deal if you buy new cars from a dealer, but I'm too cheap for that...

I disagree. I think the popularity of electric vehicles is only gaining traction. If it wasn't, lots of the big auto manufacturer's wouldn't be dumping millions/billions into EV's..

The Leaf has been TREMENDOUSLY subsidized for a long time now, and just about no one is paying $30k for one. The deal in this thread isn't even the best one that's been available.

So while the list price is $30k, no one is paying that, so no one is going to pay close to that for a used one.

Second, the Leaf is fairly pathetic as electric cars go, with an anemic cruising range. Of the electrics, the Leaf is pretty much barrel bottom.

Not a popular car here in 100+ F Arizona. I think there is a class action lawsuit against NISSAN for the batteries (in Nissan's defence all batteries are murdererd in AZ extreme temps and you are lucky to get 1.5 to 2 yrs from a battery) I have heard that Leaf's battery capacity is dropping by 70% capacity within the year or 2 of ownership in AZ. It's probably fine in other states. However, not doing well AZ.

Unless you're buying collectibles, 99.99% of the cars on the market are depreciating asset.

Yea. Calling a car an investment is really stupid.

On your way home on your new Leaf, remember to stop by Walmart to pick up some deals on 10W/40 oil on clearance. There's been a lot of those on clearance recently EEK!

As for the major automakers.

Even in the world's largest electric car market, things have not gone as hoped.

Get it will you can. Car companies offer these subsidies as loss leadings to improve their overall fleet mileage numbers to comply with government mandates. Under Trump, those mandates are gone.

So what would be the final price for this loaded with the extended battery and Tech package?

City use this would be fine. Cruising the long winding road a Prius is your best bet.
