Nissan Leaf: Now Cheaper and Made in the USA
Nissan 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.
