California SCE customers can get $14,500 incentives total on any new 40 kw Leaf!

Sun Feb 03, 2019 12:52 pm

I was so surprised to see that nobody has mentioned this incredible incentive for new 40 kw Leaf's.

Until April 1st, you can get in addition to all other incentives, yet another $3500 if you are an SCE customer and you buy a new 40 kw Leaf.

Your total incentives are:

Federal $7500
State $2500
Normal SCE $1,000 (for any EV new or used)
New, additional Leaf only $3500.

That's total of $14,500 of incentives!

If you buy the last expensive 40 kw Leaf, it is nearly 50% off!

"Drivers who are thinking about buying an electric vehicle have a new incentive to make the switch.

Nissan is offering Southern California Edison residential customers and employees a $3,500 rebate on the purchase of a new Nissan LEAF - Opens in new window. This includes all three trim levels with the 40 kWh battery and all current model years.

The rebate is on top of SCE’s $1,000 Clean Fuel Reward - Opens in new window, the federal EV tax credit - Opens in new window and any applicable California clean vehicle - Opens in new window rebates. Customers who buy a LEAF could save up to $14,500.

The offer is good at authorized Nissan dealerships and runs through April 1, or while vehicle supplies last, whichever comes first. Customers can find a nearby dealership using Nissan’s dealer locator - Opens in new window tool."
Sold 2013 Leaf. Sold 2013 Model S. These days we have three Model 3's in the household. Mine, my wife's, and my son's. On the roof: 8.8 Kw solar, 2 Powerwalls.

That tells me, among other things, that the Leaf is not selling well...
59,991 miles/12 bars/289 Gids/68.54 AHr/101% SOH/101.64% Hx 7May15 w/ new Lizard (barely made the warranty).
71,770 miles/12 bars/256 Gids/59.04 AHr/88% SOH/87.92% Hx 3Mar16 at 5 yr lease return.

Now driving a 2019 Tesla Model 3.

Battery capacity is measured in kWh, not "kw". You're talking about 40 kWh Leafs. 40 kWh Leaf has a 110 kW motor. See https://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa ... -press-kit.

Also see viewtopic.php?p=520169#p520169.

As for thru April 1st, that's no surprise. 62 kWh Leaf e+ is supposed to ship Spring 2019. April 1st is the day that tax credit on GM EVs and PHEVs gets cut in half to $3750 from $7500. Presumably, Nissan wants to thin out stock of 40 kWh Leafs and perhaps doesn't feel the need to as heavily discount starting April 1st due to the GM tax credit reduction.

I'm not sure the incentive is that incredible. Just like the PG&E deal (https://www.pge.com/en/about/newsroom/n ... ic_vehicle) that ended 1/2/19, both are taken off MSRP ($3000 in the PG&E case). The flyer at https://energized.edison.com/internal_r ... %20SCE.pdf also talks about $3500 off MSRP. Nobody in their right mind should be paying MSRP on an '18 or '19 Leaf anyway, so the savings might be minimal or 0 esp. given "This incentive cannot be combined with any other Nissan special incentives."

The $7500 has been going on since at least 2010. The $2500 (was $5000 at the beginning in 2010) has been going on for ages, since maybe 2011 or 2012. Unfortunately, an income limit was added so and I make too much $ so I can't qualify for CVRP.

Regardless, thanks for the mention for those in SCE-land who might've been unaware of both of these.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
