2019 Nissan Leaf Plus Priced From $37,445

2019 Nissan Leaf Plus priced from $37,445

The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus starts at $37,445 including destination fees. That's a $7,360 price increase over a base 2019 Leaf. For that extra dough you get a larger battery pack for more range, bringing the EPA-rated number up to 226 miles. A base Leaf will take you 150 miles with a full charge. More power is also on tap for the Leaf Plus — up 54 horsepower and 14 pound-feet of torque — and you can read what we think of the new car here.

That starting price is for the entry-level S trim. Stepping up to the mid-grade SV you're looking at a $39,405 Leaf, and the top-tier SL will ring in at a much higher $43,445. So yes, the long-range Leaf gets pricey quickly, but a lot of the equipment added is well worth your time. When you step up to the SV you get the portable charge cable, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, fog lights, adaptive cruise control and the new eight-inch infotainment system. You are also granted the ability to check some option boxes that aren't available on the base S.
