An optional charge package adds $1,770 to the bottom line, while optional Pearl White paint is priced at $395.
Other Leaf upgrades for 2016 include standard NissanConnect with Mobile Apps with a 5.0-inch color display for Leaf S models. Leaf SV and SL add NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps with a 7.0-inch color display.

Edmunds says: Some versions of the 2016 Leaf get a bigger price tag, but the trade-off is a larger battery that provides greater driving range.
