2022 Nissan Leaf Price Drop & Current Regional Lease Deal (updated)

, , ,

With the new price drop on the new 2022 Nissan Leaf (Now Starting at $27,400 before destination, previously $31,670), I just checked the new August offers from Nissan and saw a very reasonable $89 p/mo for 24 months with a $1,449 DAS ($1,390 Down & $89 First Months Payment ~ excl tax, tag, reg, etc).

This seems to be the breakdown just from the online offer (after some math).
Region (Philly/Central Jersey)
MSRP: $28,350
Selling Price: $27,213 ($1,137 suggested dealer contribution)
Residual: $21,263 - 75% (24/10)
Money Factor: 0.0003 (Guessed from the 2021 Numbers & also has been for some time)
Rebate: $3,125 (drop from $9,800 on a 2021)

Depending on the 36-month numbers, this could be another “unicorn” type deal in NJ with our rebate.


chargeup is 36 month leases minimum.


The leaf at $89 is a unicorn, but it is a fugly Unicorn… Only if you were going to get a leaf anyway…
And at 28k MSRP it is likely the 40kw battery (150 mile range) with bare bones options. So a fugly unicorn with barely a faint rainbow …


1449 + ~2000 in TTL, so About $230/month?

no - there’s nothing to see here. these are completely made-up numbers…


The calculator is wrong. The 36/10 residual is 44%. Once you plug those in, you get $200 a month …
Agree with Aronchi - Nissan ad just made up some numbers …

Blockquote Yep!

Got all my numbers from the nissan website excluding the money factor, I copy and pasted the whole deal disclosure in the calculator notes section

Then someone is wrong since Edmunds says 56% and 44% residual…

Yes none of which have a 28k MSRP… Isn’t the 28k MSRP the barest bones S model with the 150 miles range battery?

With the NJ rebate (assuming they update it to include the 2022) it looks like around 180 a month would be doable if those numbers are correct for a Leaf at that price point?

Someone can ask for the residuals on the S, but from the 2021 forums the residual differences are only +/- a few percent for the other trims.

The 2022 now has CHAdeMO fast charging standard, which was always equipped on a S (40kwh) if you found one at a dealer. Since there’s not anymore expensive option packages you can get on an S (40kwh) the only thing a dealer can really add on is accessories which don’t really add on much.

With these numbers, it should be unicorn in Cali too. Though I do not see any 2022 in stock yet. At least using search engines.


Any 75% residual car becomes instant unicorn. Looking at you Toyota Tundra with US Bank?

Wow that’s a huge drop in terms of pricing…
I just leased a 2021 base S with charging package(CHAdeMO) … MSRP was like 34k…
If they lower it to 28k… anyone should be able to get it below $200 a month…
