US-Made Nissan Leaf as Cheap as $18,800!

US-Made Nissan Leaf as Cheap as $18,800!
Nissan announced, even before starting preparation for US production of the Leaf EV, that they would also be offering a cheaper entry-level variant, which would be significantly cheaper. Well, now it`s official, and it can be had for as little as $18,800, once the $7,500 federal tax credit and state discount of $2,500 are factored in.

The actual price is $28,800, but since $10,000 is added by the federal and state governments, the price is as low as it is, and it`s welcome news for Nissan, as the Leaf has been struggling for quite a while in the US, with very poor sales, which have only recently just started to pick up.

Aside from the very basic model, the S, they also offer SV and SL trim levels, which add more kit, including leather and sat-nav. Compared to the Japanese-built versions, the SV is $3,380 cheaper, at $31,820, while the SL trim is now $2,410 cheaper, at $34,840.

Bill Hayes, Global VP of Leaf Sales said: "With nearly 50,000 LEAFs on the road globally, we are the leaders in zero emissions vehicles and our class-leading product just got better [ . . . ] From the very outset, Nissan has continuously advanced and refined the affordable zero emissions vehicle ownership experience. Now customers won't have to pay a premium for owning a green car that's really fun to drive, and that's exciting."
