Nissan has lowered prices for its battery-electric 2016 LEAF that provides an improved battery and up to 107-mile range, Nissan has announced.
The LEAF was initially slated to retail for $27,550 for the SV model, $30,140 for the SL model, and $22,360 for the S model, after the federal tax credit. However, Nissan lowered the starting prices to $26,700, and $29,290, and $21,510 respectively, after the federal tax incentive.
The SV and SL models will come standard with a 30-kilowatt-per-hour battery that provides a range of 107 miles, while the S comes with a 24-kilowatt-per-hour battery and has a range of 84 miles.
In another update, the NissanConnect EV remote system that requires a no-charge subscription is standard on SV and SL grades. It allows remote connection to the vehicle, providing monitoring of battery state-of-charge, start charging event control, and turning on the heating and air conditioning system prior to entering the vehicle.
All LEAF models feature an 80-kilowatt-per-hour AC synchronous motor that generates 107 horsepower and 187 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2016 LEAF goes on sale soon at certified Nissan dealers nationwide.
