Nissan Announces Pricing for 2014 Leaf


After slashing the price of the Nissan Leaf by $6,400 a year ago, the Japanese automaker this week announced that pricing for the 2014 version of the all-electric, zero-emissions car would remain virtually the same. Across the board, starting prices on all three trim levels have increased by $180. The 2014 Leaf is on sale now nationwide.

Nissan Lowers Leaf Price $6,400

The starting price for the lowest trim level, the Leaf S, is now $29,830; the midrange SV trim is $32,850; and the top SL trim is $35,870. All prices include an $850 destination charge. With the federal tax incentive for purchasing an electric vehicle, the Leaf price could drop as low as $22,330, and even further with state incentives such as those in California.

The 2014 Leaf is powered by a 107-horsepower electric motor that generates 187 pounds-feet of torque, and it gets an EPA-estimated 126/101 mpg-equivalent city/highway and a range of 84 miles. With its lithium-ion battery pack, the car charges up to 80 percent of its full capacity in a half-hour when equipped with a quick-charge port and using a DC fast charger. Otherwise, charging takes either five or eight hours on a 220-volt outlet when equipped with a 6.6- or 3.6-kilowatt onboard charger, respectively. A backup camera is now standard on all trims, while optional equipment includes the Around View Monitor camera system and the new-for-2014 Gun Metallic paint color.

I thought the $7500 tax credit expired in 2013.
