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.

____________________________

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.

Its a nice price drop but I had to downvote your post because of how you wrote it... seriously. While its nice to give us information on it, all you did was try to sound like a gimmicky salesman. You highlighted the torque, because the horsepower is low. Worst of all, you mentioned MULTIPLE times that its made in Tennessee.. which has nothing to do with the product that youre getting.. you made no mention of other important factors of the vehicle other than the engine related parts.
Amen. Huge pet peeve of mine is people trying to "sell their deal".

Just post the facts, the deal will sell itself, and the community will vote/rep accordingly.

Drive one for work (company got 2)
In 2,000, both cars has warning lights
Otherwise, ride is comfortable and smooth. Does great in city, poor on highways.
Acceleration is slow but never had an issue with power to merge on highway.
Honestly, for $18k it's amazing buy
With that said - to produce and dispose of all the batteries that are in electric cars, more damage is done to environment than driving an SUV.

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!

I wouldn't buy a leaf, but lease it. That lack of temperature control on the batteries scare me.

Quote from Lopportunity View Post :
Despite its faults, it is still better than the fire-prone, government-built Chevy Volt.
Not one Chevy volt has ever caught fire during normal use or in an accident(or any other electric car for that matter). If you have some facts that say different please post the link. The Volt was also conceived "prior" to the government bail out. The Volt uses the gas engine to recharge the batteries, so it has about 4x-5x the range of the Leaf. Which one is better for you depends on how far you need to drive. If you can get by on 60-70 miles a day then the Leaf I am sure would be great. But you are not taking it when you need to drive a couple hundred miles, so you would need another car for that. Or you could just buy a Volt and you are good for both situations. I have seen the volt on the road and I think it is a nice looking car. If they could get the price down another 5-6000 dollars it might be a good buy.

It's nice knowing that I'll be paying for somebody else's Leaf until I die. If they were such a good deal, we wouldn't have to subsidize them.

What will it be worth 5 years from now when it needs new batteries along with depreciation and better tech out there? In the meantime, the taxpayers have paid a lot to subsidize it.
