2018 Nissan Leaf: More Range, Less Money


CARS.COM — Nissan this week announced full pricing for the range of 2018 Leaf electric compact hatchbacks, with all three trim levels starting lower than what the outgoing 2017 model cost. Three trim levels of Leaf will be available when the car arrives in dealerships in early 2018: S, SV and SL.

The base S model starts at $30,875 (including a destination fee), which is $690 less than the outgoing 2017 model’s base price. Step up to the mid-level SV and you’ll add intelligent cruise control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for $33,375, or about $1,700 less than the comparable 2017 SV trim. Top of the line is the SL, which adds Bose premium audio, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, around-view monitor and a portable charging cord for $37,085, or $590 less than the 2017 SL.

All new Leafs will feature a 40 percent increase in range thanks to a larger battery and more efficient powertrain as well as a 37 percent increase in horsepower and standard automatic emergency braking. While the cars will not technically be on sale until early 2018, interested buyers can go to to reserve their Leaf now.
