Would Battery Leasing Ease Sticker Shock On Costly Electric Cars?

There’s no getting around it: Hybrids cost more than gasoline models, and plug-in electric cars cost a lot more than gas vehicles.

Each type of green car cuts operating costs, either by raising gas mileage substantially or replacing gas costs with grid electricity that generally cuts the cost-per-mile by two-thirds or more.

But that’s a hard case to make when a Nissan Leaf starts at $35,200 and a similarly sized Nissan Sentra starts at $16,430, or less than half that.

Most early electric-car buyers don’t choose their cars based on payback; it’s a nice side benefit, for sure, but it’s not why they bought their cars.

But to spread into the mass market and sell in higher volumes–which will itself lower costs–electric cars have to get cheaper. Much cheaper.
