Deal Details

Nissan's objective for the LEAF has always been to produce an affordable zero-emission vehicle for the mass market, and the 2013 LEAF is a prime example of that commitment with increased value at every trim level, making it more accessible for more people. http://www.prnewswire.com

"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," said Billy Hayes , Global vice president of LEAF sales for Nissan. "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." http://www.prnewswire.com

Nissan recently began U.S. assembly of the 2013 Nissan LEAF at its manufacturing plant in Smyrna, Tenn., a localization initiative that further drives efficiencies by leveraging already-existing equipment and processes while also reducing exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency. The battery packs that power LEAF are built in an adjacent facility in Smyrna while the vehicle's electric motor comes from Nissan's powertrain plant in Decherd, Tenn., further supporting efficient manufacturing. http://www.prnewswire.com

Eligible consumers can take advantage of a $7,500 federal tax credit, and some states and municipalities offer additional incentives. For example, California residents can get a 2013 Nissan LEAF for as low as $18,800 after the federal tax credit and state rebate of $2,500. http://www.prnewswire.com

Nissan will also continue its lease offer for the 2013 LEAF, allowing consumers to lease the electric vehicle for as low as $199 per month for 36 months, which includes tax credits and destination charges. http://www.prnewswire.com

About the 2013 Nissan LEAF
Now in its third model year, the Nissan LEAF is the world's best-selling pure electric vehicle with nearly 50,000 cumulative sales worldwide. For 2013, the LEAF features numerous customer-focused upgrades. LEAF is powered by a responsive 80kW AC synchronous motor produced at Nissan's Powertrain Assembly plant in Decherd, Tenn. The 2013 LEAF's output is 107 horsepower, with 187 lb-ft. of torque. Energy is supplied by an advanced 48-module lithium-ion battery made at the new battery plant in Smyrna, Tenn. http://www.prnewswire.com
____________________________

This week at the Detroit Auto Show, Nissan announced that the new Leaf S series will start with an MSRP of $28,800, which undercuts the previous least expensive Leaf by $6,400, representing a drop of 18%. Add up the incentives for buyers—$7,500 in federal tax credits, plus a $2,500 rebate in certain states, including California—and drivers can essentially pay “full price” for a Leaf for as little as $18,800. Read more: http://business.time.com

____________________________

30kW/h * $0.10 kW/h = $3

Say a range of 100 miles is $3 a charge; to compare to gas car multiply by 4 = $12 for 400mi.

Gas car goes 400 mi. a tank full. 400 / 25 * $4 = $64 for 400mi.

Fuel Cost
[LEAF] 75000mi / 100 * $3 = $2250
[GAS CAR] 75000mi / 100 * $16 = $12000

The 2013 Leaf is rated at 130 MPGe on the EPA city cycle and 102 MPGe on the highway cycle, for a combined rating of 115 MPGe.

The price dropped weeks ago. If it were really a deal, someone would've beat you to it.

I bought an electric bike with a 12 mile range for $550. No special charger needed. .07 cents a charge. That's $2.30 per 400 miles!

what bike?

So this is where my tax money is going. Thank god I dont live in California.

Quote from DAC21 View Post :
"...and add to that the irony that CA gives a huge discount...but no one in CA pays 10 cents a kwh either. Try TRIPLE"

Oh and get this, because cars get better gas milage and in general the crappy economy gas taxes collected by the State are down. Simple solution for the Marxists in charge, raise the tax another 3.5 cents come July. We have the highest gas prices, amongst the highest income taxes, most regulated States and they keep squeezing the turnip, only in Kalifornia.
Sucks to live there, if the weather was bad California would have no one living there. LMAOLMAO

Well.. Subsidizing 7.5K for EV is nothing compare to subsidizing for agricultural, big corporate loop holes, etc. Oh and lets not forgot the big fat pension for state and federal workers. You start off with 60% for you pay just for 5 years of service and up to 80% pay for life for 15 years of service. If anyone is looking for cost cutting, it's not welfare, social security, and EV subsidiarity. Because really how much does a wellfare family get in food stamps? like $500 a month. How much does a 7.5k EV tax credit per month over just 36 months comes to: $208. How much does 80% of a federal/state wage for life per month cost: Several THOUSAND dollars per month per each person. So that's where your tax dollars is really going to..

Quote from cgott42 View Post :
I was a little disappointed today as I'm still waiting for them to install the charging station , so today I had to charge in one near my office
(a) it cost $4/hr- I didn't charge full way but it cost me $10. For a full charge - it'd be ~6hrs and $24 just for a charge to make 80 mi - about 1 round trip commute to/from work -it costs about $12 in gas to do the same??? what am I missing??
(b) the time to charge fully is about 6 hrs - so no way of travelling outside of a 30-40 mi radius - even if I find a charging station - can't sit there and wait 6 hrs

In short - unless im missing something - charging stations are (a) way too expensive and (b) take way too long to use
Electric utilities companies a so stupid. If they were smart like oil companies they can easily manipulate the market to their favors. Oil companies going through this cycle of low and high prices. People have short term memories and they know it, they purposely lower prices so people can get hook on large gas guzzler, then raise prices and you're stuck as you're not going to immediately sell and buy a fuel efficient vehicle. If electric companies did the same, they can get people hook on EVs. After a few year, when there's enough production (and technology improves), they can slowly raise price and start to make profits.

just curious, if you lease 2 LEAFs would you get the $7,500 credit for each one or is it only 1 per person?

If you Lease, you don't get any of the Federal Tax credit. The Leasing company gets it which is why Nissan is offering at $7,500 rebate on the car. They are just passing that directly to you. However, you do get both CA cash rebate which comes to you in the mail.

Nice. Can you share your experience on the LEAF and why you are thinking on getting a 2nd LEAF. I'm still on the boarder and talked to several people. I get half positive and half negative.

It's great FOR A SELECT GROUP of people.
As far as the care itself (ignoring electric vs. gas) - I love it - has great pick up, I hit 86 on the highway without thinking about it (just being in a rush), I love the stereo LCD screen, and am enjoying the 3 free months of satellite radio (though couldn't think of paying for it afterwards) , however the speakers are just OK, not great. I'm tall (6'2") and I fit comfortably with no view obstruction

Given the price, and saving $120/mo on gas (=$160 gas - $40 electric bill increase) it worked out cheaper for me than any other inexpensive new car - it was a no brainer.

Now the big caveat - there are no Super quick charging stations near me, so basically I'm limited to as much charge as I put in it overnight. With headlights and radio on, and highway driving - I get 70 miles on a charge - so given that my commute is 50miles round trip - I'm fine.
Downsides - If I get an urge to go somewhere else - I really can't if it's more than 5miles away - this is very limiting.
Also - if I use the heater - I'll lose about 10mi. range on the battery (have only tested once - so don't quote me on that) - this further restricts. If it had 50 more mi range - I'd be set.

I'm thinking of giving it to my wife (who works locally) - as it gets much better range for local driving - or perhaps buying a 2nd.

Last point - not sure if I'd buy one (instead of lease) unless I lived in West Virginia (ughh) as I'd imagine the technology would improve so that in 5 years a 70mi range would be laughable.
So for those whos radius is within 50mi/day or more for local - and end up spending $160 - $200 on gas/month - and we're in the market for a car - I highly recommend it. It's really a no brainer

As far as I'm aware the cheapest new car you can buy in the USA today, is the Nissan Versa Sedan @ $10,990.
