The Nissan Leaf 2016 price information has been revealed as the EV's free public charging program has expanded to Salt Lake City.
According to Edmunds, the Nissan Leaf now starts at $29,860, including the $850 destination charge.
"Pricing on the base model is unchanged from the 2015 model and does not include a $7,500 federal tax credit or any state tax incentives."
Customers who want the larger 30kWh batery pack that gives the Leaf a 107-mile range will have to look at the higher-end models though.
Reportedly, the mid-range 2016 Leaf SV and Leaf SL are now priced at $35,050 and $37,640, respectively.
Both models also get an updated infotainment system with a seven-inch color display. The entry-level Leaf S gets a five-inch color display. Regardless of trim, the Nissan Leaf 2016 price includes NissanConnect as standard.
Edmunds' pricing reportedly includes shipping.
Per EVObsession, the Leaf SV and SL are eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit although other fees could push up the price tag.
Pricing information for the 2016 Leaf couldn't have come at a better for time for Salt Lake City residents. Nissan announced it is expanding its "No Charge to Charge" free public charging to the city.
InsideEVs reported that the program launched in the city on Nov. 3. It allows Leaf owners to charge their electric vehicles in partcipating public networks free of charge for two years.
As the website pointed out, "No Charge to Charge's" expansion to SLC means the program is now available in 21 markets across the US.
Apart from the Nissan Leaf 2016 price, this should help entice buyers towards the Japanese EV.
Combined with an income tax credit of up to $1,500, HOV lane access and up to two hours of free metered parking, Nissan's EV sales and Marketing director Andrew Speaker said the Leaf will be "an attractive option for Salt Lake City car buyers.
