Nissan has announced a price for the Leaf, its all-electric car due at the end of the year. The Leaf will be available for $32,780, meaning most US citizens can get one for $25,280 after applying the Obama administration's $7,500 tax credit for electric cars. That puts it in the price range of its main rivals, the gas-run Honda Civic ($22,255) and the hybrid Toyota Prius ($25,830), reports the Los Angeles Times.
