Yesterday, Tesla announced that it would finally start taking orders for the long-awaited $35,000 (well, $36,200 with destination) version of the Model 3. In a movement that feels intentional, Nissan announced pricing for the Leaf Plus.
While the Leaf gets a 40-kilowatt-hour battery and a 150-mile variety, the Leaf Plus offers you a 62-kWh battery and a variety. If you want the base S model, that will cost you $37,445 with destination. Upgrading to the fancier SV costs an extra $1,960, bringing the price up . The top-trim SL version, however, comes putting your total at $43,445.
That means the foundation Leaf Plus is somewhat pricier than the base Model 3, but assuming Nissan doesn that difference can disappear. By way of instance, the short-range Leaf S can be arranged in five colors. If you want a Model 3 that isn’t black other paint colours cost from $1,500 to $2,500. The Leaf’s hatchback design also makes it a little more practical than the Model 3 if it s also less sporty and slower.
When we first drove the Leaf Plus, we came away convinced that even though we didn’t yet know pricing, there was no more a reason to buy the regular Leaf. You get more range charging, and significantly more electricity. For an extra $6,500, that’s a excellent deal. Can it be enough to lure customers away from the Hyundai Kona Electric, Chevrolet Bolt, and others though? Time will tell.
