Turning over a new Leaf: upgraded EV takes it to the next level – The Globe and Mail

The all-electric 2013 Nissan Leaf is not for everyone. I say that as the happy owner of a Leaf for almost two years now. Powered purely by electricity, the Leaf offers a real-world driving range of about 120 kilometres, with no gasoline backup, so it’s likely not for you if you need to travel farther than that on a regular basis.

But it will appeal to those who like a deal, as the 2013 Leaf starts almost $6,700 lower than the 2012 model’s $38,395 starting price. Plus Leaf buyers in Ontario will see an $8,500 clean car cheque from their provincial government, with similar $8,000 and $5,000 government rebates for buyers in Quebec and British Columbia, respectively.

The entry-level 2013 Leaf S therefore starts at an effective price in the mid-20s in its three largest markets. Canadians outside those three provinces are still out of luck, with no federal equivalent to the $7,500 U.S. tax refund.
