I carefully compared Ariya and Model y before I booked Ariya in early 2022. I like the interior, exterior, and ride of the Ariya better. Plus, Model y is much more expensive than Ariya and has no tax credit at that time. I was happy to choose to wait for Ariya. However, due to the delay, Ariya lost the tax credit. Also, the poor communication with Nissan and the dealer makes me wonder does this company is still the same one I knew.
I called Nissan and the dealer many times, but no one gave me any information about delivery time and tax credit. Many reservationists in the bay area canceled their reservations after the car arrived. There are 5 Ariya listed at Stevens Creek dealer(Santa Clara & San Jose, CA New Nissan Dealer | Stevens Creek Nissan
), and I was told I can take anyone away now because previous reservationists did not want it anymore. However, they still don't know when my reservation can arrive.
Model y is cheaper than my Ariya Premiere after the price decrease last night, plus I can get $7500 tax credit from Model y but not Ariya. I still like Ariya more, but $7500 is not small money for me.
I placed an order for an available Model y at bay area last night. But I have not decided to finally pursue it . How about your reservationists' suggestions and decisions?
