wheels-nissan-leaf-two-blogspan Yokohama, Mar 31 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Nissan Leaf is all set to cost $32,780 when it will debut in the car showrooms in December 2010. And if the federal tax break is applied to the price, then the price would drop to $25,280. Apart from buying the car, people can also lease the car for a period of 3 years too. The 3-year leases are available at a down payment of $349 and $1,999. Since it is an electric car, so the buyers of the Nissan Leaf need to get a home charger installed at their abode, which is priced at $2,200 prior to a 50% tax credit.

“We think this really is a very affordable solution and will make zero emissions a reality,” according to Brian Carolin who is the senior vice president of sales and marketing at Nissan North America. “It does definitely compete … in a way that an alternative vehicle has not done before. A whole different class of buyers will be considering this vehicle as a result of the pricing,” according to Philip Reed who is the senior consumer advice editor at Edmunds.com.

Nissan says that the cost per charge of the car would be about $3 for about 100 miles. Giving competition to Nissan’s Leaf is another electric car – Chevrolet Volt, which is supposed to be priced at $40,000 prior to a $7,500 tax credit.
