The Nissan Leaf electric car will cost $32,780 when it rolls into showrooms in December. Add in the federal EV tax credit, and the bottom line is $25,280, a price that makes the Leaf competitive with the Honda Civic and the Toyota Prius.
Nissan announced the price today and said it starts taking reservations for the Leaf electric car April 20.
Sign a 36-month lease and put $1,999 down, and your monthly payment will be $349.
"If you include the energy costs, it works out to $408 a month for the Leaf, $414 a month for the Civic and $389 a month for the Prius," Jung said.
