Nissan's announcement regarding pricing for the Leaf was big news. In fact, it was so big that other information in the press release went overlooked. According to Nissan, the Leaf will come in two different trim lines. Both trims, the SV and SL, come surprisingly well-equipped for an electric vehicle priced as low as the Leaf at just $32,780, or $25,280 with federal tax credits factored in. Here's a breakdown of the trim lines and features available on the upcoming Leaf.

Starting with the base (SV) trim, buyers can expect an abundance of standard features. The SV comes with all of the expected features of a modern car plus an advanced navigation system with Internet / smart phone connectivity which allows the vehicle to be remotely pre-heated and pre-cooled. The advanced navigation system also allows the owner to control car charging features. In addition, the SV comes equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, push button start, satellite radio, stability control, six airbags and a buyer-reassuring three-year roadside assistance plan.

Stepping up to the SL trim, at a price premium of only $940 (MSRP), Nissan adds a few more touches including fog lights, automatic headlights, a rear-view monitor and a solar panel spoiler. The spoiler will not charge the vehicle's main batteries, but it can be used to trickle charge an accessory battery.

With all of the standard features, the Leaf's low price becomes even more attractive. This is not a low-rent electric vehicle with no options coming in at a low price. The Leaf is as well equipped as virtually any other car in its price range. It also happens to be gasoline-free.
