This week Nissan announced the pricing forf the 2024 model year Leaf, which does not bring any significant changes.
Just like in the 2023 model year, the streamlined model lineup includes two trim levels - Leaf S and Leaf SV Plus. The 2024 Leaf S will start at an MSRP of $28,140, which is an increase of $100. In the case of the 2024 Leaf SV Plus, the price increased by $150 to $36,190. The destination charge of $1,095 remains the same.
The press release does not include any indication that the Nissan Leaf will become eligible for the federal tax credit of up to $7,500. Let's recall that despite the local production of the car (and its batteries) in the United States, Leaf was unable to meet the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA)'s requirements. Customers potentially still can benefit from the incentive through leases, though.
|Model||Base Price||Dest. Charge||Tax Credit||Effective Price|
|2023 Nissan Leaf S (40 kWh) 16-inch||$28,040||+$1,095||N/A||$29,135|
|2023 Nissan Leaf SV Plus (60 kWh) 17-inch||$36,040||+$1,095||N/A||$37,135|
|2024 Nissan Leaf S (40 kWh) 16-inch||$28,140||+$1,095||N/A||$29,235|
|2024 Nissan Leaf SV Plus (60 kWh) 17-inch||$36,190||+$1,095||N/A||$37,285|
2024 is a carryover model year for the Nissan Leaf, as there are no changes related to the powertrain or battery system.
The Nissan Leaf S is equipped with a 40-kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery and a 110-kilowatt (kW) electric motor. Its EPA Combined range is 149 miles.
In the case of the Nissan Leaf SV Plus, it has a 60-kWh battery and a 160-kW electric motor, while the range is estimated at 212 miles.
|2023 Nissan Leaf S (40 kWh) 16-inch||FWD||40||149 mi |
|2023 Nissan Leaf SV Plus (60 kWh) 17-inch||FWD||60||212 mi |
|2024 Nissan Leaf S (40 kWh) 16-inch||FWD||40||149 mi* |
|2024 Nissan Leaf SV Plus (60 kWh) 17-inch||FWD||60||212 mi* |
* according to the manufacturer/not yet listed on EPA's website
In terms of standard equipment, the manufacturer mentions: Nissan Safety Shield 360, a suite of six active driver assistance technologies including Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning and Intervention, and Intelligent Lane Intervention. The Leaf SV Plus gets also ProPILOT Assist and Intelligent Around View Monitor.
Without any significant changes to the car, we don't expect that Nissan Leaf sales will improve from just a few thousand units in Q1 2023. The Japanese company is currently probably more focused on the Nissan Ariya and its future products.
