The new 2018 Nissan LEAF is coming to Haddad Nissan early next year and we are so excited, we wanted to tell you all about the fully redesigned battery-electric vehicle. So, what’s new other than a completely new exterior? Improvements in range; both mileage and price!
Most 2017 and 2018 “short-range” all-electric cars on the market provide 90 to 125 miles of range, where as the new Nissan LEAF is expected to offer 150 miles. It is true that there are EVs out there that can drive over 300 miles, but also come equipped with a hefty price that could start at $65,000 or more. This year’s model has found a sweet spot between needed mileage and vehicle price range, especially since 84-mile range is sufficient for more than 80% off all trips taken in America. A 200 mile version of the LEAF will also be available as a 2019 model down the line.
Now let’s talk about the price. This model starts at about $30,000 and the best part is you are not likely to be stuck on a waiting list for a new Leaf when you want one. This is actually about $690 less than the current 2017 Nissan LEAF, and can be coupled with a $7,500 federal tax credit and other local incentives; the Leaf will be effectively priced at around $20,000. This is an exceptional price for a vehicle that will save you even more on fuel.
