Hello ! Nissan called me today around my lunch time to let me know the updates of price and delivery time of my ariya (platinum +). Price will be $60,190 however there will be $1,240 discount for people who reserved the car (someone have already mentioned in other posts). Then the delivery is pushed to Spring 2023 which I am happy that we are moving so this helps and I can wait.
Also one of my friend in Japan was finally able to get full guotatio price from dealership (in japan first you have to go to dealership and pick all the customs and talk about mandatory fees and stuff before you order). She said this time it took her so long to be called so she hopes that they would start making her ariya soon.
Anyway have a wonderful weekend 😊

I received a call too explaining price increases, reservation offer, and delivery estimates.

I was told early 2023 for my Platinum+ instead of spring.
It's because I changed the dealership 2 weeks ago and that might be effected for late delivery? I'm happy delivering in spring because I move around March and I don't wanna drive over 1700miles with new Ariya and rather pick it up at new state 😅

What is your reservation #? would it because you are one of the early reservationists? My number is ~10400 and I was told early 2023 as well.
Hmm, you may be onto something, Udon123. I likewise got the call last week from Nissan USA regarding my Plat+ reservation, which also happens to be in the ~110xx range. The agent/rep specifically mentioned "early 2023" to me as well. Perhaps this messaging IS intentional.

Its just a general message to everyone with AWD...my reservation # is 34xxx and they still said early 2023.

Yes I got the call -"early 2023 - damn, this is getting nuts. My trade-in is depreciating every day until I get it. I figure I'll lose about $5000 on the trade by the time the Ariya gets here.

I believe some buyers here are on the same boat. It is unprecedented. I would never think of buying a typical depreciating asset like car can be so difficult lol. Too bad that we “want” this car to replace our deprecated ICE car on our drive way. I wish Nissan will offer special low APR financing for the long-waited buyers to off set the inflated interest rate next year.

What kind of car do you have that it's depreciating at a rate of $50 per day? With that kind of depreciation you may be better off selling your car now. Spend $3K on a beater to drive until the Ariya arrives, then sell the beater. If the beater loses $1k you're still at least $4k ahead. Probably more like $5-6K, given that you'd be saving an additional 30 days or so of $50 per day depreciation on top of the 90 days of depreciation that gets you from a planned mid-fall to mid-winter delivery, if you did it now.

All used cars have plummeted in the auctions. Something along the lines of 10% overall in 8 weeks. EVs I heard dropped 25% over the same time frame. Teslas are worth $15K less than two months ago.

I sold a Y back in July for $69K and when I check offers now they are in the mid-50s... so $15K sounds right.

What you're describing is changing market conditions, not asset depreciation. If you can predict what the market is going to be like by mid-winter, I'd really like to know which stocks I should sell, hold, and buy!

Also, if you think drops at those rates are going to continue, considering the used beater option could really be worthwhile.

You guys have my sympathy. I have a 2019 Kona Ultimate EV that I plan to trade-in for the Ariya, and everytime I check it's trade-in or sell price on Kelly Blue Book or Can. Black Book value in past two years, it keeps going up in value; weird. I guess the demand for used EV's with great range is still high, and of course with supply chain problems and delays in getting new cars, the EV used car market is thriving! Don't know about Tesla though, doesn't sound right that they are depreciating that much, but if they are, it is unique among cars with good ranges.

1) You can't buy a cheap used beater anywhere... well.. maybe with all the flooded cars in Florida lol. Basically throw that money away.

2) When same model year used car is more than new... the market is broken. It's finally normalizing now. Used car prices spiked.. . then a 20% drop is nothing and another 20% drop might get us back to normal.

KBB is useless in the US. It's a fake number that dealers don't honor. They look at MMR (Manheim) as the price. If they can't sell a car at retail they can send it to auction and sell it at the MMR price.

MMR (auction) prices have been tumbling. They would actually fall more but the theory is banks who own repos (which are rising) are holding strong on specific prices so we have LOWER prices and LOWER volume overall.

I actually looked before I suggested it. For $3K, around here, there are many vehicles available. Older, high mileage Hondas, Toyotas, etc. It would only need to be good enough to last for 6 months without major repairs, and then could be sold again. If you think you're going to lose $5K, buy a beater for $3K, sell it 6 months later for $2K, and you're still $4K ahead.
