Nissan Leaf Will Cost Only $25,000

March 31, 2010

Nissan LeafNissan has announced pricing on the upcoming Leaf electric vehicle, and surprisingly, it's affordable.

After subtracting a $7,500 federal tax credit for electric cars, the price of the Leaf will come out to $25,280 (There is an additional $800 destination charge).

The Nissan Leaf will be the first affordable all-electric vehicle on the market. As part of the purchase, buyers will have to install a 220-volt home charger which costs about $2,200. The good news: There's an additional federal tax rebate that will offset that price by $2,000.

Even better news - residents in California and Georgia qualify for an additional $5,000 tax rebate while Oregon residents get an additional $1,500 tax credit.

The Leaf has a range of about 100 miles between charges and will cost only $3 each time to recharge.

The first cars will be available in Seattle, Oregon, Tennessee, San Diego, Phoenix and Tucson starting in December. Nissan will begin taking deposits of $99 on April 20.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
