2013-Nissan-LeafNissan CEO, Carlos Ghosn once again showed how his company is committed to electric vehicles by dropping the price on the 2013 Nissan Leaf by 18 percent.  There is a newly added S trim level of the five seat EV which will start at an MSRP of $28,800.  This means a net price in the high teens in states that offer incentive pricing to the $7500 federal tax credit.  Nissan also announced a $199 per month lease deal on a 36 month term.  This is far below other vehicles in this price range.

Part of the lower price is due to the fact that the Leaf will be produced domestically in a new facility located in Smyrna, TN.  Ghosn is forecasting a 20% increase in 2013 sales from 2012.
