Nissan Motor Adds Low-Cost Electric Leaf as U.S. Assembly Starts

Bloomberg reported that Nissan Motor Co. (PINK:NSANY), which late last year opened the biggest lithium-ion battery plant in Tennessee, has announced that it will add a cheaper version of the rechargeable Leaf, as the car’s production begins.

As quoted in the market news:

Base prices for the 2012 SV and SL Leafs are $35,200 and $37,250, respectively, before a $7,500 federal tax credit. Nissan introduced a new Leaf to the Japanese market late last year that was priced 11 percent less than the previously cheapest one.
