Oh, MAN...shame I live in NY.

EDIT: their website shows no sign of this deal.Looking at the fine print, though, you have to live in VT and have Green Mountain Power as your provider.

Over 4700 Leafs sold in Europe in March (just March). Just under ID3. ID3, as more info comes out, appears to be just ok.. Besides a better charging curve, and TMS (which for many don't ever matter), not much else to prevent sales loss to the the Leaf's price differential.

More widely though, I think Tesla's continued evolution of its product combined with problems and stagnation of Kona and Zoe seem to show a widening gap.


Leaf is also leading sales in Colorado:

I never knew half of USA Nissan dealerships were not cash flowing until January 2020 when my 2016 Leaf SL battery pack triggered the warranty at 25K miles. One upside to running products into the ground is that for 15 years some thought my 1986.5 Hardbody PU was new when I would get it out and drive it.

When they sold most of their EV battery manufacturing interest concerned me as far as their long term EV interest.

I do think this dealer shows creativity in moving 2 aging lines of products from his dealership.
