I'm considering leasing a '16 or '17 after lease ends on my '14 on 6/30/17.

Please share your actual transaction info if you have recently leased or purchased
a new '16 or '17.

Thanks

There is the website offer mentioned previously. I for one am looking to pick up a new one in December when my 36 month lease runs out. Dilemma is same color or something different. I figure it will get harder for them to unload the 2016 and 2017 as the time to 200 mile range cars show up. Wonder when the Tesla 3 is going to show up.

My feelings on Tesla is that if it happens it happens. My 1kilobuck deposit will not kill me if they go belly up but I am optimistic.

How do you like the eGolf?
What do you know about the 2017 with increase in range
over 2016?

My current eGolf suits me just fine. The added range of the upcoming eGolf would only mean I charged less frequently. It has most of the Mercedes B's bells and whistles and I like the looks so I am happy. I wanted Drive assist so I got a loaded SEL. Gray is OK but my previous two cars were white. The gray is growing on me though. The dealer had two grays and a black. I will never again have black. Everyone should have only one black car, never again without a little boy with a feather duster.

I used to drive to work (19.6miles) but now that I am retired my mileage is trivial. I purchased the eGold on 9-16 and I only have 4000 miles on it. I go to the TRW swap meet every couple of months (39.6 miles one way) and at 100% I usually arrive home with a quarter of the battery left. These days that is my longest trip.

I have a new 24 month lease on a leftover 2016. Lease on my '14 ends 6/30/17.
Shipping car from CA to GA. Deal is almost good enough to justify shipping?

Discount of 34.6% off of MSRP
MF: .00001 - yes, that's right
Residual: 46%
Monthly Pmt. $400 plus GA tax
Cash at signing: $795 lease acq. fee plus tag/title fee of $46 plus 1st month pmt.

Looking forward to some new technology in two years.

Great info, thanks. Did not know that 24 months was an option. Given lower upfronts, the monthly rate looks good compared to their advertised $299 for 36 months.

Enjoy the ride.

I'm still in progress finding a dealer, but the sister site for VW e-Golf is getting really hot enough that I'm debating if MB Is worth keeping.

Specifically the MB Service charges are not going to be friendly in a long run... I'm seriously thinking about turning it back in for either 2016 or 2017 e-golf next March.

Boy it helps to be retired. I bought my eGolf SEL on 9/20/16 and I now have just over 3800 miles. I did my Mercedes A service by time and the dealer considered the car's mileage as nearly new.

Every couple of months (like today) I go to the TRW swap meet at 39.6 miles one way. Both cars had no problem with the trip at freeway speeds. Today I arrived home with about 30% of the battery left. That is my longest trip. It used to be around twenty miles one way to my job at Long Beach so that is gone.
