Despite what we told you earlier, the Nissan Leaf will have a starting price of $32,780 when it hits the market later this year. Factor in a federal tax credit for purchasing an electric vehicle, and the price drops by $7,500 to $25,280. Live in California? The state will kick in an extra $5,252 to bring your out the door price to $20,028 (excluding tax, title, license and ADM to be first on your block, of course).
Ready to place your order? Don’t forget the cost of a home charging station, estimated to be around $2,200. The good news is that the feds will kick you back half the cost; the bad news is that you’ll require an electrician and permits to get the charging station installed.
