If you step up to the Leaf SV model, it’s priced at $33,375 and adds Intelligent Cruise Control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 2018 Leaf SV is $1,700 cheaper than the 2017 SV. The top 20198 Leaf SL starts at $37,085 and adds a Bose audio system, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Intelligent Around View Monitor and a portable L1/L2 charging cord. The Leaf SL is $590 cheaper than the 2017 model, but manages to add up to $6,800 worth of added features.
The 2018 Nissan Leaf will go on sale early next year. If you were hoping for a longer driving range, Nissan has already confirmed that another version of the Leaf is coming for 2019 with a longer driving range. It’s being reported that the 2019 Nissan Leaf will offer a second battery option that will give it a 225 mile driving range.
