An estimated 25,000 off-lease Nissan LEAFS and Chevrolet Volts will flood the used car market throughout 2015 and this has some dealers concerned.
Kaylee Morrison of Hayward Nissan stated:
“I hope they trickle in."
Usually, dealerships are eager to get back these off-lease cars, but Morrison seems to imply that's not the case with the LEAF:
“Are we going to be able to sell this enormous amount of used Leafs when there are so many incentives to buy the new ones?"
Well, if priced right, used LEAFS will sell.
We quickly checked the used LEAF inventory at Hayward Nissan at time of writing. The results show exactly 0 used LEAFs available, so perhaps the flood hasn't begun or maybe moving used LEAFs is easier than Morrison suggests.
*UPDATE: There are now 6 used LEAFs on the lot.
