When a radical new design for a car is released, there is always a lingering question for early adopters. Is my car going to have resale value after driving off the lot? It's a fair question, and one new Nissan LEAF buyers thought about when walking into Berlin City Nissan serving the Portland, Somersworth and Saco, Maine region.
While we were confident Nissan had made all the right decisions with the LEAF, only time would prove the eager fans correct. That time has come, and happily, we were right. In reference to the NADA Official Used Car Guide we find that the 2011 Nissan LEAF has a resale value of a full 95% of the tax-credit-adjusted sticker price.
Now, besides strongly holding value in the resale market, the Nissan LEAF promises Maine drivers a top speed of 90MPH, roomy seating for 5 passengers, a big zero stops at the fueling station, a 100-mile range per full charge and a responsive 80 kilowatt-hour electric motor, just to name a few.
Perhaps the biggest selling point of all these items: it's a joy to own and drive. A new Nissan LEAF owner puts it this way, "I have had my Nissan LEAF since August 2011. To say that I'm a happy owner would be a major understatement! I love this car! Besides the cool factor, I like the styling, the comfort, the acceleration, the touch-screen display, the reverse camera, the dashboard and the feeling that I can drive all around and not use a drop of gas."1
