The word

Nissan LEAF

Nissan has been positioning the LEAF to take the world by storm when it hits streets later this year. Now, true to their word, they've announced a price tag that's under the $35,000 mark. After incentives, the price is only $25,280 and is nearer to $20,000 in California, Colorado, and Georgia.

The car will officially release in December as a 2011 model and will be available for purchase or lease. The $32,780 price tag includes three years of road side assistance and full vehicle warranty.

The federal tax incentive for purchase of an electric car is $7,500. California and Georgia both have $5,000 rebates on top of that, Oregon has a $1,500 rebate, and other states like Colorado also have incentives.

The lease price is $349 (not including state/local incentives).

And so ...

Nissan begins taking reservations for the LEAF on April 20.
