Kauai Island Utility Cooperative and the Nissan LEAF
A pretty great Nissan LEAF discounts of $10,000 (that stacks with the federal incentive), continues to pop up all over the US prior to the new generation's launch this Fall. Now, in popular areas such as Hawaii, we are seeing that promotion extended through September.
At this point Nissan, why not just make it a national end of model year sale and call it a day?
The Hawaiian Electric Companies (Hawaiian Electric, Maui Electric and Hawaii Electric Light Company) offers its customers significant the significant rebate in partnership with Nissan North America (as one might expect as its fully funded by Nissan).
The $10,000 discount, combined with $7,500 in federal tax credits cuts the base price ($30,680) in half.
And as it turns out, already more than 300 people purchased LEAF that way.
"Customers should take their electric utility bill and the promotional flyer available at hawaiianelectric.com/nissanleaf to any participating Nissan dealer on Oahu, Maui or Hawaii Island to receive $10,000 off the sticker price of a new 2017 LEAF S, SV, or SL, while supplies last. With potential federal tax incentives, savings could total $17,500."
Also, a second utility Kauai Island Utility Cooperative offers the $10,000 discount through September 30.
"The rebate, which was originally offered to KIUC membersin January and then again in May, can be accessed by presenting the member’s KIUCelectric bill and the flyer, which is available for download and printing on the homepage of the KIUC website: www.kiuc.coop."
So far, 0.55% of passenger vehicles registered in the state are fully electric.
