Nissan Lease – A 2022 Nissan Leaf for Less Than an Oil Change

I’ll cut to the chase here. Right now, it’s just about impossible to get your hands on a new car. Well, unless you’re willing to make a blood sacrifice or give up your firstborn heir. However, one brand is trying its hardest to find a vehicle to bring in new blood: Nissan. The brand hopes that the new 2022 Nissan Leaf will be that vehicle, and the brand is offering a killer lease deal to get it done.

The 2022 Nissan Leaf is a low-key EV

Honestly, there’s a lot of reasons to like the new Leaf. However, there weren’t always. Back in its early years, the Nissan Leaf struggled somewhat. Then again, our civilization was still very new to the whole “electric car” idea and making it all work. Then, things started to turn around for the Leaf in 2018 when it got a respectable range boost. Now, these small EV hatchbacks will easily go north of 220 miles on a charge.

The pros don’t end there, either. Given its economy car roots, the 2022 Nissan Leaf checks a lot of the “A-to-B” car boxes like Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Of course, charging infrastructure has only made EV life easier, and with Biden’s new infrastructure plans, it seems like EVs are here to stay, including the Leaf.

Lease deals like this are a scarcity nowadays

Now, about that lease deal. We already know how hard it is to find a new car these days, so let’s hope Nissan has the inventory to fulfill their new lease incentive. Right now, you an get a 2022 Nissan Leaf – a brand new car- for just $89 a month. That’s less than a lot of new cars right now. People are out there flipping Ford Broncos for six figures, and Nissan wants to undercut the market.

However, keep in mind that you’ll need to fork over some cash up front. That amount, of course, is entirely determined by financial basics such as credit score, as with any lease. However, Nissan says that you can walk away with a new 2022 Leaf for that magic number, plus anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 down. As with any dealer incentive, the brand is also offering “0% APR to qualified candidates.”

Honestly, Nissan needs you to buy a 2022 Nissan Leaf. The Japanese brand’s reputation has taken a hit as of late for their lackluster truck lineup and the ever-aging GTR. However, the 400Z promises to bring new life to the brand, and Nissan clearly wants a share of that EV market to help bolster sales. Frankly, if you’re looking for a solid, practical EV, it’s hard to argue with Nissan or the Leaf. Now, it’s all about finding one.
