Nissan Leaf
Final price for the vehicle can run you $25,280 or lower depending on state tax credits, rebates

The Nissan LEAF has been the topic of discussion countless times here on DailyTech. The last time we covered the LEAF, Nissan had announced that the first deliveries of the vehicle would begin in December 2010.

Today, however, Nissan has finally announced pricing for the compact electric vehicle. The LEAF carries an MSRP of $32,780. The $7,500 federal tax credit for electric vehicles will bring that price down to $25,280. Nissan also notes that state government tax credits can bring that price down even more (California offers an additional $5,000 tax rebate, Georgia offers a $5,000 tax credit, and Oregon offers a $1,500 tax credit).

The 220-volt home charger needed to recharge the vehicle will cost you an additional $2,200 including installation. However, "There's a credit for that" -- the federal government will give you a tax credit of up to $2,000 covering the cost and installation of the charger onto your premises.

According to Nissan, the LEAF will be available in SV and SL trim levels. The SV comes standard with such niceties as GPS navigation and smartphone hookups. Paying an additional $940 to step up to the SL trim will get you a spiffy solar panel spoiler, fog lights, and a rearview monitor.

The Nissan LEAF can travel 100 miles on a single charge and features a top speed of 87 mph.
