Re: SDG&E - $10,000 off MSRP through 9/30/17

FYI, the pickins' for new LEAFs in San Diego are getting kinda thin. Mossy Nissan has a virtual monopoly on Nissan dealerships in San Diego. (There's also a small dealership Pacific Nissan but they don't show a LEAF in stock) Here's what's available at the moment.

Can the SDG&E discount be used in Orange County? There's a lot of Nissan dealership competition up there.

If not, maybe you could get them to transfer one down from another dealer.

So for everyone looking for a leaf in san diego and coming up empty handed, Nissan of San Juan Capistrano is actually in SDG&E's power range, so they do offer the rebate as well. As an added bonus, they can transfer nissans from other dealerships in the LA region at no cost. I was all ready to buy last week, but decided to hold off any see what the 2018 pricing will be.

In addition to the $10,000, I received a $3,000 Connecticut rebate and can take advantage of the $7,500 Federal tax credit. In sum rebates for me totaled $20,500! I managed to sell my 2013 S for $7,500 (under water by $2,000) so the net of all this was I purchased my 2017 for about $6,000 out the door! Still pinching myself.

What an excellent deal. Congrats!

I believe the $10,000 rebate is only for 2016-7 Leafs, not 2018. You have to decide if the 2018 is $10,000 better for your needs.

Or you could use this information to see if another dealer will come down further than $2k off MSRP. I'm curious if they would. Poway wouldn't even budge at all. They said they were only doing MSRPs on the SDG+E rebate. I got El Cajon down to $1100 below MSRP until my friend who was over at Pacific Nissan texted me and said they had him at $2k below. So then El Cajon matched them.

El Cajon would not put the rebate on the discount line so I had to pay sales tax on the $32,000 sales price. However, I heard from a friend that Pacific Nissan WOULD put the rebate on the discount line so that would save you another approx. $800 in sales tax, depending on your sales tax rate at your home zip code.

Charging it has been a nightmare though. Nissan gave me a free two-year charge card and apparently, the fast charger by my house has not been updated in the network. So my card does not work there. I have to call EV-go and wait on hold for 25 minutes before they will remotely start a charge for me. I suppose I shouldn't complain too much since it is free. : )


Do you mind sharing what you paid OTD? (followed by the 7500+2500 back via taxes?)
I know the state rebates is being wait listed, any insights into whether or not that will ultimately go through?

What sort of deal were you seeing OTD for a 2017?

I am going to start reaching out to dealers now (via email) for OTD pricing after all rebates/incentives.

Looks like pricing would be something like $31000 - $4000 (negotiate) - $10000 SDGE = $17000 + TTLD = ~$19000.
Then $2500 + $7500 back via taxes.

Total price ~$9000?

Why not? The numbers work out - the only thing to watch for are dealer "extras". For example, they wanted to charge me for "VIN etch" - I told them no way and it was knocked off. If the dealer is motivated you can deal hard.

Can you talk a little bit more about your experience with the EV-go plan? The plan (two years of free charging) seems like a good deal to me too, but has your issue been resolved yet? I assume the installation is free? My partner and I are thinking about building a solar panel-roofed carport that would provide off-the-grid charging, but the upfront costs are pretty steep. (And the technology seems to be getting cheaper and more efficient every year, so I feel torn about building now rather than waiting.) After a month of using EV-go, how do you feel about it? Any regrets? Thanks.
