Ironically, trade-in allowances to GET a Leaf can be generous. I negotiated $9k for a 2013 PIP with a sick motor, and they then added $1k on to that a few days later.
Prices seem to be all over the place. 2 months ago when our 2019 SL Plus was totaled KBB showed private party value of ~$25000 and trade in value of ~$22,000. State Farm surprised us and came up with Actual Cash value of $31,500. After subtracting $1000 for collision deductible and adding sales taxes they wrote us a check for $31,614. I was only expecting about $26,000.
We bought a 2020 SL Plus as a replacement for $38,200 out the door. A few weeks later the dealer sent us a refund check for $112.35 for overpayment for tag fees so the real cost was $38,087. We qualify for and will be filing for the federal tax credit of $7,500 so the net cost is $30,587. So we ended up with a one year newer model year SL Plus and $1,026 in our pocket.
Here’s the worksheet for the 2020 SL Plus. Our 2019 had no lien and the 2020 was a cash deal, no financing.
