I am supposed to be signing a contract for Aria soon. But yesterday's Tesla price reductions is causing me serious heart burn. The Model Y with AWD and 330 mile range is coming to the same price as Aria Evolve +. Under these conditions not sure if anyone has been able to negotiate to knock off few thousands off of MSRP from Nissan dealers. Has anyone negotiated?The EV prices will go down once more competition enters the space and the Chinese brands make it to US shores. We’re are starting to see that now with Tesla dropping prices on there vehicles. This is only going to hurt the Nissan Ariya. Which unfortunately Nissan deserves to lose market share. They had poor comms with reservation holders as to when there vehicle would arrive. They did not provide any guidelines on if we could get the EV tax credit. They dragged their feet on deliveries. I mean had mine arrived in 2022 good chance I would have purchased because of the 7,500 tax credit. I am also seeing they added kick plates and floor mates from factory which raises the MSRP. The floor mates is no big deal but the kick plates is a simply money grab. Finally they just did some really dumb things with one of major complaints being a non power driver seat in the venture+. I mean at least add it as option to buy.
Also, the Chinese EVs are undercutting the competition and losing money just to gain market share. Similar to what Amazon did early on.
