Re: 2013 LEAF Pricing and Features

A grand for the camera and sound system? That's not terrible. I expected worse. I think once I see the around view camera I'll have to have it :ugeek:

SV vs SL differences are:
  • 17" wheels
  • Solar panel
  • Leather seating
  • Cargo area cover
  • HomeLink
and that'll cost you exactly $1,390 over the SV. Again, not outrageous. I think it's fair to ask that for people wanting leather.

I think I'll end up with the SL with the Premium Package, $35,890 (plus destination), minus $7500, minus $4-6k for Colorado rebate = around $25k out the door fully loaded.

Re: 2013 LEAF Pricing and Features

I'm not so sure... It gives a rather odd perspective. Since the side cameras are in the side view mirrors, they also do not give you that much of a view that you could not see by simply looking out the side windows. The systems that use side view cameras in the front and back of the vehicle are more useful as they cover blind spots you have when backing out of a parking space or pulling in to a street with your view blocked by cars parked on either side. It's a much better blended picture of your surroundings with less distortion but, of course, it is also somewhat more expensive because of the additional cameras...

Believe it or not, we get $7,500.00 here in "Almost Heaven" West Virginia (where Coal is King LOL!). So I'd be looking at the following for the "S"...

$28,800.00 MSRP
<$7,500.00> Federal Tax Credit
<$7,500.00> West Virginia Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Tax Credit

That said, I'm still leaning towards leasing a remaining 2012 SL or 2013 SV if the price is right. Just can't bring myself to commit to an outright purchase until we know what the battery replacement costs/policies will be.

Re: 2013 LEAF Pricing and Features

Here are the trims, options & prices for MY2013.

The option prices look decent. Note that port installed options have gone up by about $5 each.

I wish it wasn't necessary to buy Bose to get around view. No technical connection whatsoever.

My MSRP would be $34,500 + destination for SV+ package 2 & 3.

1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?

But they are wide angle cameras, and pointed somewhat downwards.
So you can see the distance between the tires and curb which can be handy for precision parallel parking... (You can't really do that by looking out of the window, unless you point the motorized mirrors downwards.)

Wow, that is outrageously awesome. May be worth the wait if you don't need all the feature of the SL or SV.

Wow, much better price than I expected! :D

Way to go Nissan, I'll start trying to push my friends over the fence when they become available next month!

Re: 2013 LEAF Pricing and Features-S:28,800 SV:31,820 SL:34,

One thing I still can't make out.

Will SV & SL have RearView monitor as standard ? Otherwise the only way to get RearView is to buy the AroundView in a package with Bose for $1,050.

Re: 2013 LEAF Pricing and Features-S:28,800 SV:31,820 SL:34,

If you buy the AroundView do you have to also get the speakers? I'd probably get that, but I really don't want the speakers, especially since it takes up trunk space.
