Interesting that in the cold, the 62 Leaf out ranged the Bolt. (Though very close)

Clearly discounting is helping Nissan unit sales numbers.

Coronavirus casts shadow over Nissan's earnings outlook
With no end to epidemic in sight, carmaker's reliance on China will exact a toll

I did not know its China volume was greater than the USA market volume. It looks like the China market is shaping up to be a make or break situation for Nissan and others with the corona virus being the wild card as it is the wild card for the entire world this morning.

The US is now the third largest car market, after China and Europe respectively. Has been for a while.

Leaf can be had for under 26K Euros in Spain now. One of the most affordable EVs in Europe.

I've gotten two offers to end my lease a year early and lease a 2019 or 2020 Leaf. Nissan seems to be offering about $3k to do this.

An e-plus or just the standard version?

Only the model years on offer (2019-2020) was given. I assume that an ePlus SV with Tech and All Weather packages would be an option. I just don't think that, being afraid to enter a grocery store now, I'd want to spend time at a dealership. Maybe if I could do it over email...

Our Nissan dealership has sent emails that they will do it all over the phone, drop a car at your place for the test drive, and have paperwork ready to sign in the car. Pretty clever.

Not sure if it works if you need a loan or something notarized.
