Nissan Cuts 2022 Leaf Pricing Making it the Most Affordable EV in the US

The 2022 Nissan Leaf’s new prices exclude federal incentives which drop the final price to only $20k


  • Price slashing is up to $6,500 from 2021 levels.

  • The Nissan Leaf is the longest-running EV in North America.

  • The base price is not set at $27,400.


This is excellent news for new car buyers considering the move to an electric vehicle. The auto industry is working on bringing affordable EVs to the masses and at the moment, Nissan’s in the lead. Their Leaf is also the longest-running EV on the market giving it quite an advantage.

The base 2021 Leaf S, with the 40 kWh battery retailed for $31,670. Although the Leaf is unchanged for the 2022 model, its new $27,400 starting price is certainly reason to celebrate. What’s more, if as a buyer you qualify for the full federal tax credit, this lowers the price to an incredible $19,900.

Should You Buy a 2022 Mini Cooper SE?

Depending on the selected trim, the 2022 Nissan Leaf’s prices have been slashed by between $4,200 and $6,500 according to electrek. This now positions the Leaf as the most affordable EV in the U, ahead of the Mini Electric’s base price.

No news for the moment if we can expect similar price cuts in Canada. The story is quite different here as the base Leaf SV with the 40 kWh battery starts at $44,298. The Mini Cooper SE (electric) begins at $40,990 while the current affordability champion is the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt at $38,198.
