NISSAN has dropped the price on its Leaf all-electric car, as well as shortened charging times.
A newly added S grade lowers the Leaf price from $38,395 (plus $1,990 freight) to $31,698. Provincial rebates of $8,500 in Ontario, $8,000 in Quebec and $5,000 in B.C. lower the price further.
Pricing on other models is set at $34,998 for the Leaf SV and $38,398 for the top-line SL.
Additions to the 2013 Nissan LEAF include 17-inch alloy wheels, leather appointed interior, Around View Monitor and seven-speaker Bose energy-efficient audio system on SL models. A standard 6.6 kW on-board charger that reduces 220V charging times by nearly half is added to all models.
Also new is the availability of the Nissan LEAF App for Android users that will allow customers to control their LEAF from their smartphone and will be compatible to previous generation models.
The 2013 Leaf goes on sale in EV-certified dealer showrooms this July.
