The 2011 Nissan Leaf battery electric car, which will go on sale in the United States in December, will have a suggested retail price of $32,780, a Nissan spokesman, Mark Perry, said Tuesday morning. Nissan prefers to describe the price as $25,280 inclusive of a $7,500 federal income tax credit.
According to Mr. Perry, the standard SV trim level will include many options, including a navigation system, automatic temperature control, an audio system with satellite radio, and remote control features that will allow the car to be preheated and precooled while connected to a wall outlet.
For $940, customers can move up to SL trim, which includes a rear-view camera, foglights and a spoiler-mounted solar panel. The Leaf can also be leased. Customers can put $1,999 down and pay $349 a month, Mr. Perry said. The Leaf home charger (called “a charging dock” and built and installed by the Nissan partner AeroVironment) will be sold for $2,200, or leased for $30 a month. Consumers can also get a federal tax credit for installing a charger, equal to 50 percent of the total cost, up to $2,000.
