Forget Norway -- Quebec May Become Next Home for Unwanted Leafs

Wed May 31, 2017 11:22 am ... ng-ground/

Message to the U.S. and the rest of Canada: Quebec wants your old Leafs.

Starting late last week, Nissan began offering certified, pre-owned Leafs in Quebec with a $4,000 (CAD) government incentive on the hood — part of the provincial government’s Drive Electric program. Quebec wants its tally of EVs and plug-in hybrids to reach 100,000 vehicles by 2020.

Nissan Canada is also helping out:

For its part, Nissan’s Canadian finance division will offer customers a 3.99-percent lease rate or a low-interest (1.99 percent) loan, while slapping the old Leafs with a limited three-year or 40,000-kilometer manufacturer warranty.

California has discussed rebates for low-income buyers to purchase used BEVs but AFAIK that hasn't progressed beyond the "it sounds like a good idea" stage.
