$9k for a 2015 is easily 30% too high.

I can't see where you are getting that opinion from? You can realistically expect to get that car for $6300???? I don't think so..

KBB says $9k private party, so maybe you're right.

But don't forget that new 40kWh 2018s can be had in several states for under $15k all-in. The 2015 has half the usable battery capacity, lower horsepower, and less time remaining on the warranty.

Market rates vary widely area to area. In states with larger incentives, I can see it.

Hgreg didn't want to move a single dollar so I wished them good luck selling the car and moved on. Although EV's are exempt from most tariffs where I live, they aren't from all so I had a real incentive to keep the price as low as possible. Found a Tesla trade-in at a reasonable distance for only 4k. Yes, it did loose 6 bars but that is enough to cover the Island where I'm currently living on and this summer the car will get the Mux treatment :D

May vs April incentives

Tue Apr 28, 2020 6:47 am

Wish there were more posts on buying experiences, but I guess the forum reflects society: no buying happening.

I was originally in the market for a used under $10k, but when I realized I could buy new, more range, no mileage and no hidden issues for around $20k (with $7500 rebate), I refocused only new.

As for new: April has $3k Nissan rebates on 2020 and $3500 on 2019. Dealers are doing about $4k on top of that (for 2019s at least). Will May bring even more deals? It seems like a crazy time to buy with things the way they are, and further reductions almost certain at a time when nobody is driving, and 20% of people may not even have a job to drive TO.

When I bought my 2017 the new price was several thousand less than the locally available used prices, at least for an S trim model.

Now I'm thinking of buying a used 2013 for $5k and putting in a 40kWh battery for another ($6k?) but as you mentioned, new prices are not that much more and then you get a new car, newer tech, a warranty, etc, etc. The car would be for my folks and I'm not 100% sure they want one even though they really liked mine and asked about how much it would cost to buy one. I suppose I could give them my 2017 and keep the 2013 for myself but I don't really have time for a project like that at the moment.

My friend bought a 2016 in 2017 for about $16k, and with the $7500 credit ended up under $10K! Years later I was searching craigslist and couldn’t find the same 2016 for under $12k, and that’s with 50k miles on it and 4 years of time (and depreciation). I’m kicking myself for not taking that 2016 deal With him, and looking to come as close as I can now on a 2019.

looking at my first leaf and have tried 3 dealers. Best price so far is 36k out the door on a 2019 sv plus with tech package. This is with no fed or state incentives figured in. does this sound like a solid deal?

It’s not a bad deal for today, but demand has crashed, and better prices will be ahead, if you can hold in there.
