A five percent discount would amount to $1,639 off of the base SV model and a $1,686 discount on the uplevel SL. Word of the deal was found over at the MyNissanLeaf forum, which is quite obviously the place to go to find out about any hot offers coming in from Nissan dealers. North Bay Nissan's eCommerce director, Ron Coury, posted the offer on the forum, stating:
While we're still waiting to see a $2,000 discount, this five percent deduction nearly reaches that mark. Hat tip to EVNow!It was great speaking with you today and yes I will give you and anyone in the SF Bay Area group or outside the group 5% off of MSRP... I cannot offer free shipping due to the large discount we have already offered for anyone."
