I'd be shocked (pleasantly shocked) if those federal tax credits stayed at $7500 for 7 more years. Nissan is on pace to hit the 200k manufactured in the next few years, which is when the credits phase out under current law.
Is it 200,000 per manufacturer? or per model? If they call the new leaf something else, will it still anew? How about the infiniti model? Would that start fresh as well? I'm been trying to guestimate the sale of my 2015 Leaf is 2.5-3 years for a newer 150mi range model, but the $7500 credit plays a big part in this. If its not there, this would be problematic. If nissan loses the ability to take advantage of this credit, they may need to offer longer range batteries to existing leaf customers in order to keep them around. If I had to chose between a leaf gen2 and another brand in order to keep my $7500 credit, I'd say bye-bye to nissan! Maybe the leaf Gen2 will be under the infinite brand to take advantage of a clean slate on rebates?
