If you have been waiting for a Nissan Leaf with a lower price, you may find what you are looking for when the 2011 models arrive at dealer lots.
Nissan is planning to lease the 2011 Leaf electric cars to consumers in the United States at a price that is sure to give the Honda Accord and the Toyota Prius a run for their hybrid money. According to a recent report in Automotive News, the new Leaf may debut on Nissan dealer lots at prices starting between $39,000 and $44,000. However, officials with Nissan denied these prices were accurate so it’s anybody’s guess right now. There are also rumors that consumers in the United States will be allowed to lease both the lithium-ion battery and the car, which would be a different program than the current one in Japan in which consumers can only lease the battery and buy the car.
“If we include the battery and the vehicle in a lease and take account of the incentives, we want the monthly lease to be comparable with that of the Honda Accord or Toyota Prius,” said a source interviewed by Automotive News. These prices could work out to be between $330 and $420 each month for 48 months. These figures and information will be more accurate, however, once we get closer to the date of the actual launch. The source also said that there could be a $7500 government incentive for leasing or buying the Leaf, but it is unclear as to how that will work into the price.
