2017 Nissan Leaf Confirmed To Be Overpriced
Every passing year makes the Nissan Leaf less and less attractive, especially when rival green vehicles are getting better and better. The good news here is that Nissan has acknowledged this fact and they are already working on the next-gen Leaf.
However, this won’t stop Nissan from keeping the old Leaf active and they are still selling the ‘obsolete’ model today. We say obsolete because the Leaf is now below the average driving range of EV cars with only 107 miles to offer.
If you are to calculate the price per mile of an EV car, you can see that the Leaf is one of the most expansive choices around. As how you can see in the picture below, the Leaf is priced at $287 per EV mile and this is only slightly behind the Tesla Model S 75.
It is shocking because the Leaf is an affordable EV car, not like the Tesla Model S. The Leaf may be $5,000 cheaper than the Chevrolet Bolt but its rival EV hatchback is still cheaper per mile. Clearly, the Leaf is overpriced and it consumers must not view the car based on surface value.
