Nissan Leaf Overview
The Nissan Leaf is like the cool kid on the electric car block. Made by Nissan, this compact car rolled onto U.S. roads in December 2010. Think of it like your phone: over time, they kept updating its battery. So, the car’s ‘juice’ went from lasting a short 73 miles to a pretty sweet 226 miles on a single charge. This ride racked up some serious awards, like the ‘Green Car Vision’ in 2010. By the end of 2021, Uncle Sam’s backyard had over 165,000 Leafs zooming around.
Now, here’s where things get a bit techy: The first-gen Leaf (from 2010-2017) packed an electric motor that could push out 110 horsepower. That’s like 110 horses pulling you! Initially, it had a 24 kWh battery, kinda like a heart for the car. But then they upgraded it to a bigger, 30 kWh one. This gave the car more stamina, so it could travel farther.
Design-wise, Nissan wanted the Leaf to be everyone’s pal. It looks like your typical five-door car, but with some snazzy features. The battery, which is the heaviest thing in the car, sits right under the seats. This makes the car stable, kinda like keeping your backpack low on your back. And here’s a fun fact: the battery’s expected to last longer than the car itself by about 10 years!
Lastly, early Leafs had this tech called CarWings, later changed to NissanConnectEV. It’s like the car’s personal smartphone, helping with navigation and other cool stuff.
We buy a lot of electric vehicles (EVs) at SUYC and we want to make you a fair offer for your Leaf, regardless of whether it’s in good working order, been in a wreck, or need significant mechanical repairs.
3 Reasons to Sell Your Nissan Leaf to SUYC
Frequently Asked Questions
Below we’ve shared a few of the questions we get asked the most. If you don’t see your question answered, please reach out and ask us directly.
How Are You Able to Pay More Than Your Competitors for My Leaf?
The short answer is that most of our competitors are not recycling facilities, whereas Sell Us Your Car is. The truth is that most companies who ‘buy’ junk cars are not actually buying them but instead are simply lead generation companies who end up selling the leads to companies like ours.
So one way we are able to offer more is by cutting out the middleman. When we buy directly from consumers, more money goes into your pocket. This is also to say, when a company that sells leads makes a bid on a car, they have to lowball the seller in order to leave some meat on the bone.
The other reason that SUYC is able to pay more for junk cars is because we not only recycle cars, but we refurbish and resell their parts. This means we’re able to make more money on a vehicle we’ve purchased, as opposed to a company that just resells parts or one that just does metal recycling.
How Quickly Can You Buy My Leaf?
More often than not, if you call first thing in the morning, we’ll have a tow truck out to your location before the end-of-day. However, we run a busy operation and can’t always make a same-day purchase. For those who call later in the day and during our busiest days, we more often than not can schedule your pickup within 48 hours.
Will You Buy My Leaf Without the Title?
The only way we can buy a car from anyone is with proof of ownership. A title is a great way to show that you own your vehicle and that there isn’t a lien on it. However, with a bill of sale and government issued identification, we can make a junk car purchase.
