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

Sun Aug 06, 2017 10:53 pm

I just got this in my email today from my local Nissan dealer (Mossy Escondido):

As part of the effort to accelerate clean transportation alternatives, Nissan is offering eligible San Diego Gas and Electric customers a special rebate on the purchase of a new 2017 Nissan LEAF electric vehicle.

Simply show your SDG&E utility bill and a copy of this flyer at Mossy Nissan Escondido to receive a $10,000 rebate (off MSRP) on a new 2017 Nissan LEAF! This limited time offer expires 9/30/2017 or while supplies last (whichever occurs first), and cannot be combined with any other Nissan special lease, APR or rebate.

Compared to TrueCar pricing, it appears that this will save you about another $5k off street pricing.

Dealer discounts might drop the price further.

Wow, sounds like they expect the bottom to drop out of Gen 1 LEAF pricing. Wonder if I can get a steal to purchase my 2015 when my lease expires near the end of the year.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

It is the Electric Utility that is offering the discount, not the dealer. Or shall I say both, as the discount is off of MSRP, not dealer discounted price. Still, it is a wonderful offer, plus the additional Fed and State rebates. In CA that is $20,000 off MSRP for the new Leaf. I am thinking that maybe it is time to add another EV to the stable while waiting on our Tesla Model 3.

I just purchased a 2017 S using this rebate in Connecticut and I also negotiated the purchase price down quite a bit, so the rebate is $10,000 off whatever deal you can make. 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.

Thanks to the person in Connecticut who said they negotiated below MSRP (and thanks to a friend who was working a deal at a neighboring dealer at the same time as me), I got the SDG&E deal in San Diego and got $2000 below MSRP, plus all of the other rebates. So even though it says "Off MSRP," dealers will still come down even more.

Glad to help out! Dealers have to get rid of these boat anchors so deal hard.

Sounds Great.
Be aware there is a difference btwn a rebate and a discount. A discount by the dealer reduces total cost and there is no sales tax on the discount. For The rebate, when I got it from Nissan, was after I paid the sales taxes on that amount. A small but important distinction.

I got mine from Mossy El Cajon. Ask for Isai. pronounced Ee-sah-ee. He's trying to make a sales goal this month and he'll be happy to help you I'm sure. 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. : )
