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.

Horsepower is some arbitrary number that indicates how hard one must rev a gas engine to get the maximum torque out of it.
No it's not. Google is your friend.

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!
Which bike is this?

Quote from buddy View Post :
I lived in Southern California. I am using Edison. On Tier 3, the cost of 1kwh is 28 cents. I am close to Tier 4 which is even more. So it is not that cheap!
He speaks the truth. Try tier 4 during July, Aug, and Sept (central air) and your electricity bills gonna break your wallet like crazy.

That is incorrect, Southern California Edison has an EV rate schedule that's 15 cents/kwh and if you have solar and an EV it's pretty much free



QUOTE=Troublestylist;57466818]...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 that.

Leave it to the government to kill cheap electricity (read: nuclear) and then pay to subsidize people to drive electric cars.

I drove a hybrid for 10 years and it cost me 1.5 gallons to go 100 miles ($6). Without solar, that's cheaper than paying for electricity on a Leaf thanks to Grey Davis.[/QUOTE]

Quote from Lopportunity View Post :
Despite its faults, it is still better than the fire-prone, government-built Chevy Volt.
Although they did use government bail out money to get keep GM afloat, GM built the Volt on their own accord to try to capture market share for electrics. The government did not make them produce an electric vehicle.

The Volt was not "government-built"

Not trying to thread-crap, just trying to set the record straight with GM, although not perfect, they have made quite a turn around.

Remember the slick deal when you could get your family member to purchase one if a Colorado resident could get a stimulus check making the final price around 18k
