The Electric company rebates only appear to apply to Leaf's?
Do you think this is for the coming V2G trials, or a deal Nissan cut with the power companies?
Good question - for SCE, southern CA edison, it was 1k for ANY EV. Even used.
But SCE also had a deal with Nissan where you could get X amount off a Leaf or Y amount off a Leaf plus, separate from the rebate. I had a flyer for it at the time.
BUT it was a bit of a scam / promotion BS. It turned out it was "X amount off MSRP". Well since I was WAY below MSRP, the dealers would not take it. Honestly it was an amount off MSRP that you should easily have been able to hit with moderate negotiation anyway. Maybe ploy is better word than scam. I suppose it would have been nice when the plus first came out, you could have walked in and gotten Y under MSRP without any negotiation. That's my problem with the Kia, dealers still think they deserve full MSRP (or more at some!!) which I personally think its insane. I refuse to ever pay MSRP. That's just me maybe.
