In another sign of how electric vehicles are poised to gain market share, Nissan announced Aug. 3 it will lower the MSRP of its all electric 2022 Nissan LEAF to $27,400, while adding more standard features, according to a press release. That’s down from a starting MSRP of $31,670 for the 2021 LEAF.

Buyers may lower the cost even further if they qualify for a potential federal tax credit of up to $7,500. Destination and handling is $975.

Added standard electric vehicle features include a CHAdeMO Quick Charge Port and portable 240-volt charging cable for every model. Additionally, eight features previously featured in the technology packages for the SV PLUS grade, including ProPILOT Assist and Intelligent Around View Monitor, will now be standard.

“Nissan was the first automaker with a globally-available mass-market electric vehicle and we’re continuing in the tradition of making electric vehicles available to everyone,” said Aditya Jairaj, director of EV sales and marketing for Nissan U.S., in the release.

The LEAF is equipped with a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery and 110-kW electric motor that delivers 147 horsepower, 236 lb-ft of torque and up to 149 miles of range. It’s available in S and SV trim levels.

Nissan LEAF PLUS features a larger-capacity 62-kWh lithium-ion battery, increasing the range to up to 226 miles (LEAF S PLUS only). LEAF PLUS also features a more powerful 160 kW motor that produces 214 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. LEAF PLUS is offered in three trim levels: S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS.
