Holy cow, $28,800! That is one heck of a price drop. The 2012 model started at $35,200. That is currently cheaper than the i-MIEV!

Just for clairification, that is before tax incentives too! But, you do have to tack on a $850 destination fee.

Big kudos to Nissan.

Sadly, there is no smaller battery available. Its a new battery that is 'better' and I'm sure cheaper for them. Also, with the changes made for the 2013 model year, the Leaf is expected to gain EPA estimated range.

All three of the Leaf models will have the same battery.

They are being built in Smyrna Tennessee - another American made EV!

Fantastic news. It looks like I will only be waiting 5 more years to purchase an EV, since I always buy used. I also avoid the new model year, so perhaps in 5 years I will get a 2014 Leaf.

I've wanted to get a Prius for ages, but the carrot that is always dangled in front of me is an electric only mode that can do 15mi or better. Still waiting.

28,800? That's pretty good. Now it's a mere 100% higher than the equivalent gasoline model, which should make ROI much easier.

Driving a Leaf instead of an average 23mpg car save you ~$17,000 per 100K miles you drive. And that is if you pay for your electricity. If you put solar panels on your roof (which about 1 years worth of gasoline money) then you can cut your electric bill by 30-70% *and* have your driving included in that.

You can drive an electric car (2-3 cents/mile) for less than the cost of regular maintenance on an ICE powered car (~3.3 cents/mile).
