2019 Nissan Leaf Retains $30,795 Starting Price And 150-Mile Range

Nissan confirmed that pricing for the the 2019 Leaf will remain unchanged across the range.

That means that the 2019MY battery-electric will start from $30,795, including a $895 destination and handling fee, in the S trim level. Prices for the other two trim levels also remain unchanged, with the range-topping SL costing from $37,095.

The Nissan Leaf is the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, as the company has sold more than 348,000 examples since the original came out in 2010. Nissan has sold over 123,000 Leafs in the US alone over the same period.

The latest generation comes with a 40kWh battery pack and an electric motor with 147hp and 236lb-ft of torque. Nissan claims that the Leaf can travel 150 miles on a full battery charge, which, according to the company, is more than adequate for “the daily driving needs of most Leaf owners”.

Other highlights of the 2019 Leaf include Nissan’s ProPilot semi-autonomous system and the e-Pedal, which allows the driver to accelerate and decelerate by pressing and depressing the throttle, as the car harvests its kinetic energy and stores its back into the battery pack when you’re off the pedal.

A 6kW plug will fully charge the lithium-ion battery pack in 8 hours, while a quick charger can top up a depleted battery to 80 percent of its capacity in just 40 minutes.

The 2019 Nissan Leaf is already on sale at the company’s Leaf Certified dealers across the U.S.

    love the look of this car. when it becomes affordable, and battery life gets extended and charge times drop, only then will i consider buying a ev.

      You will most likely be able to find these for half the price in a year or two. For whatever reason, Nissan Leafs have horrible resale value. Some say it’s because the range degrades over time but it doesn’t actually degrade by that much in the first few years.

    But it is like comparing Octavia combi with Audi RS6. Yes, the RS6 is faster and has a better handling. But are we really going to pretend, that these cars are for the same customers?

    When’s the 200 hp variant coming out?

    Great cars. EVs are designed to last more than the battery warranty period of 100K miles if you use them 0-100% every day. I’ll let you in on a secret. If you use the EVs 20-80% all the time then the batteries will easily last 2x to 3x the warranty period. That is well over 250k miles. So when you select your EV try to find one with twice the range of your daily commute and only charge to 100% before those long trips. You also need extra range for heat, AC, and extra errands so that extra 50%$ accoutns for that. If you are a multicar family and one isn’t already an EV, its time to make the change.

      Yes, fantastic, and screw people living in flats.

        Yep that’s a tough decision for peeps without a cave to hang their chargers. There are lots of plug in hybrids to choose from now, even economical used ones. You can opportunity charge around town. If your adventurous, and your commute is small, you can go EV and dwell in an a flat or a hole.

    Yep the LEAF is the ultimate in reliability and ythe lowest cost of ownership of any cars. It is designed for a family. Actualy LEAF stands for Leading Environmental Affordable family car. If you want the tops in performance, luxury, long-range adaptability, and your willing to sacrifice reliability, the Tesla is a great choice.
