I think I want to try a lease on a Leaf. Saw an ad from Capital Nissan for an SL lease 24 months 199.00 plus tax with 1999.00 down. Looks like a great deal but of course the units were sold when I called. Has anyone had a great leasing experience in the Atlanta Market?

Thanks for any guidance.

Burton,

I am also shopping a lease deal in Georgia (Atlanta.) I'm also waiting on Regal Nissan to deliver a Leaf S - basic model.

The tax owed is estimated around $1500. You have to add that into your costs, to be sure. ;-)


Your deal -- if I read your post correctly.
2.000 down at signing
1,500 tax
4,800 (24 x $200 payments)

That puts your total lease somewhere around $8300

My deal -- if it ever comes through!
1500 - tax
4875 ($203 x 24)

That puts my total around $6375...mind you, you're getting a lot more "Leaf" than I am! The power package upgrade alone would be most of that difference ($1400, I think.)
I qualify for the VPP (Employee and associated corporate discount) which saves a bit, too.

Yours looks like a good deal. Both of us can take advantage of Georgia's generous $5,000 tax credit. I'm not 100% positive how it is applied. Many people here say it comes straight from 20% of the MSRP, even on a LEASE. My tax accountant seems to think that's right.

I was not able to score the $199 SL from Regal. I am getting offers that are significantly higher closer to $12,000 total cost for 24 months. I may just wait since this is a want not a need. Rising interest costs should cool the car market.

Thanks again for your input.

if you can get the cost for a 24 month lease in the $8200 neighborhood you'd be doing well

Picked up a Blue SV yesterday at Capitol City Nissan with the LED kit and quick port charger.

$1034 down, $279 x 23 monthly payments. (INCLUDING TAX)

$7451 total for 2 years - $5000 GA credit = $2451

yea was quite happy, it's the 15k limit too. The sales person tried tell me that it was not including tax, but I had the original quote in my email saying that the price was including tax, so he had to honor it.

Don't forget to account for the "mandatory" end of lease disposition fee when comparing Total Lease Costs. Typically this adds another $395 and is sprung on you when you are sitting in the Finance Manager's office going over the final paperwork. This is another negotiable point that can drive your deal down further.

Your total least cost equals
Down Payment ("out the door" price) +
# of payments times Monthly Payment +
End of Lease Disposition Fee.
Everything else is just background noise.

Most of the deals are quoted at 12k/miles per year. Going to 15k/miles per year is going to raise your price.

Lots of good tips and recent deals in the thread locked at the top of the forum:

That's astounding. When is the tax credit applied, and where can I find more info? I'm in Atlanta too and am just starting to shop EVs.
