Nissan Sets Price for the LEAF

nissan-leaf
We've all been waiting to hear what exactly Nissan has meant by "competitively priced" when describing the LEAF.  Well, now we know.  The all-electric sedan will have a sticker price of $32,780, slightly more than expected, but still pretty cheap for an EV.

At that price, the LEAF is a good $10,000 more expensive than gas-fueled sedan models like the Honda Civic, Toyota Camry and www.bm-cultura.de Nissan Altima, but cheaper than announced prices for EV models like the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Coda Automotive's sedan and far below the www.y-e-n.net nearly $60,000 Tesla Model SPlug In America calls the price a "game changer" and I'd have to agree.

Not convinced?  Here's more to www.jubileecampaign.nl consider.  The price includes the installation of www.y-e-n.net a home charging station, it will be available for lease for $349 a month (not too shabby when you compare it to the mortgage-sized lease payment for the Tesla Roadster) and once you apply federal tax credits, you're actually looking at a $25,280 car.  If you live in a state like California that's offering an additional $5,000 rebate, that price drops to $20,280.

Now you're in the territory of a base model Toyota Prius.  The cost of a hybrid, but it's all electric.  I have a feeling there are people at GM right now recrunching the numbers for the Chevy Volt.

charging station?
written by Alex, March 31, 2010
Doesn't look like the charging station is included. From the Nissan Press Release:

In tandem with the purchase process, Nissan will offer personal charging docks, which operate on a 220-volt supply, as well as their installation. Nissan is providing these home-charging stations, which will be built and installed by AeroVironment, as part of a one-stop-shop process that includes a home assessment.

* The average cost for the charging dock plus installation will be $2,200.

No, it doesn't include the charging station. But that $2,200 is also subject to a 50% federal tax credit, so it's down to $1,100.

This officially kills any criticism for EVs on the basis of price. Now all that's left is that "range-anxiety" myth that's still perpetuated. Good thing 100 miles/day range is good enough for 99.5% of US commuters...

Charging station
written by Jackal, March 31, 2010
Is it a design error not to tramadol uk delivery be able to charge using a standard 110v/220v? To need another 'charging station' seemed to make it a little unappealing coz you can no longer charge 'everywhere'. Does the Tesla need a separate charging station too?

Re:Androo
When that price includes over $10,000 in tax credits, the criticism is still there.

Also, that 100 miles/day still kills it for 99.5% of the population. They still need to drive more than that a few times per year, and no one wants to have to keep a second car when you have to pay taxes on it.

The volt is best levitra prices still the tramadol out script overnight concept to emulate with a gas engine so I can go long distance at will, even if that is only once per month.

Speaking of the VOLT
written by beforewisdom, March 31, 2010
The VOLT was due out in 2010. It is now April 2010.
Has GM set a release date of just a vague goal of cialis pharmacy in india before 2010 ending?

Maybe I will not hold onto my new car as long
written by beforewisdom, March 31, 2010
I'm getting ready to buy a car.

I'm going for a 2010 Civic. My last car I held onto for 11 years. If an electric car gets down to about the same price in the meantime, is not but ugly, and is viable for an apartment dweller I may break my tradition of using a car completely up before buying a new one.

You can charge it with a 110V outlet. It will just take longer (something like 16 hours for a full charge).

Also, that 100 miles/day still kills it for 99.5% of the population. They still need to drive more than that a few times per year, and no one wants to have to keep a second car when you have to pay taxes on it.

You can rent a car for the rare occasion when you need to make a longer trip. I plan on having an electric car (likely the Nissan Leaf) as my only car. I almost never have to drive more than 50 miles in a day, and I suspect the same is true for a lot more than 0.5% of the population. In fact, the numbers usually thrown around are that 80% or more of the US population drives less than 40 miles a day. Yes, they might have "range anxiety," but I'm not really worried about it because I know how to read a gauge on the dashboard.

I think the Volt is a terrible idea. It has all the disadvantages of both electric and gas-powered cars. Even if you wanted to, you cannot just run it on recommended site official canadian pharmacy electricity all the time because then you'll have problems with the engine not working later on. It's also going to be more expensive because it has all the extra parts that a gas-powered car needs but an electric car does not (engine, radiator, fuel pump, exhaust system, gas tank, etc.).

Many people are wait for the green electric car with friendly youth feature and fun approach to life in city.

The Leaf will have a navigation system built into the viagra canada samples center console, as well as smart phone integration (where you can contact your car to start the A/C before you get there, for example). Sounds pretty nifty to me.

Good Point Carlyca
written by beforewisdom, April 01, 2010
Good point Carlyca -- the Leaf looks fugly, but designed to be a second family car, a commuter car for a suburban bread winner.

It makes sense, that is the demographic who could afford and click now levitra next day who want a car with a limited range as a second car.

$349 a Month!
written by Bob, April 02, 2010
That is a game changer and not in a good way. Just to lease a charger, when you own the car is $349 a month?
I only pay $10 a week for gas now. Why would I pay $300
premium each month for the privalege of going green? That just does not make sense.

Bob, the $349 a month is to non prescription levitra lease the whole car, not just the charger.
