Electric vehicle prices are slated to drop considerably this year. As such, the price of the 2013 Nissan Leaf was just cut by £2,500 (which is $3,950) in the United Kingdom, bringing it down to £23,490 ($37,115).

Of course, this is just the beginning of the price drops expected for EVs in the years to come. However, even today, this could make owning a Nissan Leaf cheaper than owning a comparable gasoline-powered car for many UK residents.

Assuming that Nissan cut its production cost, and this cut didn’t eat into its profit too much, this price reduction has come at a time when a price drop was much needed, as Nissan Leaf sales have been terribly slow.

Nissan has other tricks up its sleeves to lure prospective Leaf customers, such as a policy under which customers would be provided with a courtesy Leaf while theirs is being repaired.

  • What is the selling price to customers in UK? Does the price drop
    apply in the US and other countries? What is the range of Nissan Leaf?

  • Currently I can’t find anything about new Leafs being able to accept standard European current. We’ll know that Nissian is serious about selling Leafs outside of Japan and North America when I can plug one into a standard Australian power point.

      • Leafs can accept electricty from a 240 volt charger, but as yet I don’t think they can accept current from a normal European or Australian power point. The few Leafs in Australia so far use specially installed chargers, which is a pity, as European/Australian power from a normal socket is more than adequate for a full overnight charge. Faster charging from a normal socket is an advantage suitably designed electric cars have outside of Japan and North America.
