Start your engines — your electric engines that is.
Nissan has just anounced that it will sell the all-electric LEAF in the U.S. for $32,780. A Federal Tax Credit of $7,500, which, in theory the first 200,000 LEAFs sold should qualify for, brings that price to a very affordable $25,280, or essentially the same price as a 2010 mid-line Honda Accord.
Only, in contrast to the Accord, the LEAF won’t use any gasoline, just electricity, which, on a per mile basis is considerably cheaper than gas.
And if you solar-charge the LEAF with a home solar system that’s already been paid off, you’ll be filling up your car for free.
