I just got an interesting deal for my housemate. The car is a nearly loaded 2020 SV Plus.
NYS EV Credit: - $2000
Nissan lease incentives: -$10,650.
An average to good deal, but now it gets interesting. They are taking her 2013 Prius PHEV in trade, and giving her $10,000 for it - half in cash, half in lease cost reduction. We had originally figured that a dealer would give us maybe $6k for it, as it has a bit of body damage and a misfire issue of unknown cause. But I presented the car well - remotely - and it's the end of the month, so the original $9k offer became $10k yesterday. The version of the deal she will likely take is:
$5k of the trade in credit down. $0 cash down
$273/month, 36 months, 10K mileage lease (together we drive maybe 5k miles a year, if that.)
$4200 cash back to her ($300 of which will go to pay for the Protection Package.)
I don't exactly remember the residual (we were running numbers for 3 cars), but I think it's $18k. The plan is for her to buy the car off lease if she likes it. I had no interest in getting bloodthirsty in negotiating; if the deal goes through as described, we will have traded a likely problem for a new 62kwh SV+ with All Weather and SV+ Tech packages, and about a third of the lease payments paid by the cash back.
