Last week in Tokyo, Nissan unveiled the new 2018 Nissan LEAF electric car. With a real-world range of around 150 miles per charge and a starting price tag of around $29,990 U.S. before incentives, the 2018 Nissan LEAF is slightly cheaper than its predecessor while offering a decent increase in range.
But while it’s a mid-range electric car, it’s also a mid-price electric car, putting it out of the price bracket for many. Which got me thinking: what exactly would an affordable electric vehicle look like? How could electric vehicles be made more affordable? And most importantly, how can we make sure that electric cars trickle down in the used car market to make excellent value second-hand cars?
