I think it looks a little better than an old VW Rabbit, LOL
Hey now! My first new car was a 75 Rabbit I bought for under $5k. At the time it was one of the only FWD cars (along with the Civic, which could be had for $3k). Fond memories - & if I'd managed to grab an e-Golf I would have come full circle.

It's supposed to be patterned after the original Civic, but I don't really see that either.

A 2017 QC leaf at only 2k more now would seem to be worth it over this smart. It really needs to be about 15k for its constraints.

If you can wait, 2019 Leaf ( and other cars ) will have a new dense,cheaper lithium ion battery from LG that will give 60 kwh and give at least 225 mile range.
thats good news. I read somewhere that LG and GM are together building batteries exclusive for electric cars and research on larger capacity batteries. I would suspect they will get first piece of the bread.

Several solutions are available, instead of argue mention problem and collaborate on a plan to mitigate.
Also how much gas is being saved, enough to buy more kms on the lease?
Are you planning to buy the car out, how does the math work?
Perhaps trade the SUV for another EV either now or future, save on gas and repurpose to highest mileage traveler?

The 2017 Leaf deal right now is $3000 discount and is just about sold out now, existing inventory is slim, wishing folks well on their search.

The Smart ED coupe, is $3500 less than the 2017 Leaf's build it now price on Nissan.ca.
My price will include at least a $2500 discount, so it's quite a bit cheaper ($6K) than a new (old) Leaf.

He leased four years and rebate entitlement is fully completed over the first three years.
It is my understanding that although a lease has to be at least three years to get the full rebate the vehicle must be kept the full term of the lease (e.g. 3yrs or 4yrs) in order to avoid paying back in FULL the amount of rebate received.

Hi OP,

How are you getting the additional $2500 discount? Just based on unhaggle numbers, it doesn't look like they'll be willing to offer that steep of a discount. I still have my 2014 smartie and have placed an order for the 2018 but have yet to negotiate my deal. Need to get all the help I can since I love the car but it seems like the monthly payments are a lot more than back in 2014.

Thanks

As I stated a few times:

$2000 discount.
$500 Smart owner loyalty

I've put down $2000 deposit on a mostly loaded coupe with $3000 in options...so that might have helped on the discount.

I told dealer sales rep that this is a starting point for negotiation and that I got $4000 in discount+loyalty on my 2013 purchase and expect somewhere in that range this time as well.

Hi OP,

Do you know if the tires/rims of the old Smartcar will fit on this new model?

I see the calculation only take into account $1200 destination charge. Where can I buy this car with only $1200 destination charge? There is no PDI/admin fee/AC tax and other fees for this car

Thanks.

Called Midtown Mercedes this week, they are expecting Smart ED in November.
The initial allotment is sold out.
There are further non-initial orders already in their pipeline.
Orders today will be months till delivery.
Not expecting to stock inventory in 2017, as their pipeline already consumes most of the cars they had prepared to order.

As for my own order, looks like November delivery.

Still no delivery estimate or price for our convertible. I've been looking at other EV/hybrid cars with no luck either. Everything seems to be unavailable
