That's a lot cheaper than a Bolt- Bolt base model is 43,095 + 1800 Freight and A/C tax = 44,895 . I think within 3-5 years the Chinese auto industry will have brought the price of electric cars to same or cheaper than gasoline powered cars so don't count on any resale value for what you buy today.

At the MSRP, the Leaf is fairly competitive, not amazing, but certainly not terrible at all compared to gasoline cars at that price range. With the Ontario incentive, you'd be crazy not to be reserving one right now. I just got a call from my dealer today confirming my reservation (and my dad's) for the 2018 Leaf. I believe we'll both go for at least SV's ($39500 before incentive) to get Pro Pilot functionality (good for single lane autonomous highway driving), navigation and rims.

IMO, get into an accident even with all the airbags etc will not save your life when there is no crumple zone to help take some of that energy away from your body. Getting into an accident even in normal sized vehicles is real hard on a body. No need to add more just to save some thing we human tend to idolize 'Money". I would rather pay more and have more vehicle around me.
There is a video online where one of the older Smart cars is driven at 112km/hr into a concrete block and afterwards the passenger door still opens and closes!

Which dealer did you deal with? I've been into my local MB when servicing my B250 to ask them about the Smart, and they seem very uninterested in selling this car. Basically said put down a deposit and you might get it in a few months, shame really, it's like they are anti-selling it.

Not unlikely, low profit margin and automakers are mostly making EVs as compliance cars or because Tesla has them scared.

A VERY useful post. This is basically the reason why I'm skipping the Bolt in favour of the new Leaf and Model 3.
How many kms does leaf give? and how many does Bolt give?

Maybe you can get some dummy to get to take over your lease while paying you some cash. :) I've seen a couple of listings on leasebuster that are stupid enough to get into.

So if no one takes over your lease, you will stick with the Bolt and ask for a refund of your Tesla M3 deposit?

What's the residual value on your Bolt after three years and the battery and drive motor unit are warrantied to eight years? Makes most sense to drive the car into the ground or sell just before the eight years are up. That has been my specialty -- haven't sold a car since moving back to Canada in 03.
