Buying an all-electric 2013 Nissan Leaf for only $18,800

2013 Nissan Leaf
If you assumed that the 2013, all-electric Nissan Leaf was out of your price, read on.

Earth Techling reports that it's possible to buy one for as low as $18,800 since Nissan has added a base line S-Grade model costing $28,800 which, when modified by select federal and state tax credit, "can take the price down a nice $10,000."

Here's what Earth Techling has to say: 
"The newly added S-grade, according to Nissan, is the lowest level trim for the Leaf. Even at this level, the electric car seems still pretty well outfitted for what you are paying. Standard features include a 6-way manual driver’s seat, 4-way manual front passenger’s seat, trip computer (instant and average energy consumption, driving time, outside temperature and autonomy range), Automatic Temperature Control (ATC), center console storage and 3.6 kW onboard charger. There’s more as well, but you get the general idea that the car manufacturer isn’t just giving you a stripped down electric car with nothing but the electric drivetrain to get you to your destination."
