Leaf gets modest $180 price increase for 2014
Nissan has one of the more popular full electric cars on the market today with its
. However, this popularity doesn’t mean that the Leaf isn't selling in huge numbers relative to more conventionally powered vehicles.
As a result, Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn wants to significantly increase the sales of the Leaf. Ghosn has stated that he expects the sales of the Leaf to double in the U.S. Last year Leaf sales hit a record number with 22610 units sold.
"We are now on a trend of 3,000 cars a month in the U.S., which is about 36,000 cars [per year]”, said Ghosn. "The next step is moving up to 4,000 a month, which is going to be approximately 50,000."
Ghosn didn’t offer a target date for those sales increases.
Nissan has also announced the pricing has gone up a modest $180 for 2014 Leaf vehicles. The 2014 Leaf S will start at $29,830, the Leaf SV will start at $32,850, and the top of the line Leaf SL will start at $35,870. These prices are before the $7,500 federal tax rebate.
The $180 price increase isn't that much and for 2014 all versions of the Leaf get a rear-view monitor. That back up camera was previously only available with the tech package.
