A few months ago, there were whisperings that Nissan Canada would drop the MSRP of the MY13 LEAF by $1,000 in Canada. (Perhaps by dropping the manufacturers rebate of $1,500 that was offered most of the year.)
However, I'm afraid that the timing (today) of the MY14 release in the USA is very bad for Canadian pricing.
Nissan Canada announced the price of the MY13 LEAF in June, when the Loonie was worth 0.98 USD. In mid-October, when Nissan originally planned to debut the MY14 LEAF, the CAD was still worth 0.97 USD.
However, now the CAD trades for only 0.92 USD. It has lost two cents over the last couple of days. All other things being equal, this might equate to a 6.5% price increase over last year. (Compared to a 0.5% increase in the USA).
On the bright side, Nissan Canada should offer the MY14 soon, not five months after Nissan USA as was the case with MY13.
