Last month we highlighted the fact that Nissan USA was deeply discounting their LEAF by $5,500 to move old 2012 inventory ahead of the newly updated 2013s (more range, less money).

At the same time, Nissan Canada, who lists the LEAF at $38,395 ($38,900 USD) offered customers $5,000 off the MSRP to also move an over supply of the 73-mile EV.

Apparently that did not go as well as hoped as Nissan has upped the offer to $6,000 in an effort to clear out the 2012 LEAFs that are still unclaimed by customers.  So if you are in the market for a LEAF, and you live in Canada; this might be your time to pick up a deal.

This offer can be used against a lease (which are notoriously not as good as in the US), and a Canadian dealership was nice enough to run the numbers for us.    $343 over 36 months with $446 due on delivery.

...of course, the dealer "may still sell for less".
