My son was considering buying or leasing a Nissan Leaf SL in California this week. A California dealer quoted him close to $22,000 for the Leaf with sales tax, registration and fees included after the state $2,500 credit and federal $7,500 credit. Alternatively, he could lease for three years with nothing down and pay $208 per month (including sales tax) after the state credit. Who said the $38,000+ Nissan Leaf is expensive? Not any more. An article in Forbes last spring mentioned Serra Chevrolet as a unusual dealer selling about 25 Volts each month. Guess what, on December 27th, 2012 they only had 83 left. They don’t seem to be selling that well. This is the best time of year to buy a car as I’ve noted earlier. Too bad there aren’t any C-Max Energi’s available. I couldn’t find any inventory on Christmas Eve. Maybe you can find one as we approach New Year’s Eve.
