@Leftie - the problem is the original lease term
must be 30 months or longer in CA to qualify for the various state/local rebates.
Correct. Eventually, CVRP folks added language about the original lease part.
I’d gone thru this saga before the language change. I had a pointer to it at viewtopic.php?p=444180#p444180
. Originally I (and others) was told yes, I could qualify by extending my (original) 24 month lease to 36. Later they changed their mind.
So, at the 2 year mark, I returned my car.

When I was in the market, a 2 year lease effective price per month even though it didn’t qualify for CVRP was cheaper than a 3 year lease with the $2500 deducted. There seemed to be a steep drop off in residual between years 2 and 3, making the lease for a 3 year quite expensive per month.
