I was busy (on vacay so out of town) but the situation seems pretty bad.
A Bay Area (very strong EV market here) dealer that I reached out to (one I leased my 1st Leaf from) pings me every now and then but all I can respond with is that I'm In limbo due to waiting for buyback numbers or denial from GM for my Bolt.
Via text convo (that's how they've been pinging me), I asked them how many they're receiving each month. They said they're scheduled to receive 5 Leafs in January but 3 already have deposits on them.
In general, sometimes when I pass by car dealers, they have few cars. When I was in So Cal, I passed by a Toyota dealer and could see the lot was nearly empty.
I test drove a Kia Niro EV a few weeks ago and they had a couple. Sales droid complained that before, they'd have like 200 cars (in total) and now they have like 20. I think he had 3 or 4 Niro EVs and I asked if they'd be gone in a week (or was it two?). He said yes. I was mainly trying to make sure that it wasn't a deal breaker if I receive a decent buyback offer and then would need a temp EV.
Another dealer (probably not high volume Leaf before) who I'd been speaking to seems to get maybe 1 or 2 a month.
A few months back, I called Gilroy Nissan and they said they didn't expect any for the rest of 2021.
'22 Niro EV

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
