Nissan recently launched a rebate program through several Ohio utility companies for the Nissan LEAF, the company’s first series production all-electric vehicle. Customers and employees of Duke Energy, First Energy, and AEP Ohio are eligible for a $3,000 rebate off the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) on the 2018 LEAF. To receive the rebate, customers must show proof of employment or their utility bill to participating Nissan dealerships. New LEAF owners could also qualify for a $7,500 tax credit as well, bringing savings to $10,500 total. The 2018 Nissan LEAF seats five and possesses a range of 151 miles between charges. The base model LEAF has a MSRP of $29,990, allowing the combined rebates to reduce the vehicle cost by a third.
"Electric vehicles are becoming more popular as people recognize the environmental and sustainability benefits they offer," said Mark Julian, vice president, Utility Operations, FirstEnergy. "These types of rebates offer an incentive for those customers who want to support this environmentally friendly technology."
The advantages of driving an all-electric vehicle include:
No gasoline – at the current U.S. national average price of 12.5 cents per kilowatt hour, electricity is equivalent to gasoline at less than $1 a gallon
No oil changes
Vehicle charging at home overnight
Virtually silent operation at low speeds and on highway
This special offer is good through June 30, 2018, or while supplies last. Please contact or visit your local Nissan dealer.
