Since the 2018 Nissan LEAF isn't selling all that well in the U.S., the $3,000 rebate is now popping up in more states.

Two additional utilities - Eversource in Massachusetts and Baltimore BGE in Maryland - joined the Nissan North America program, so there are now at least five electricity providers offering $3,000 off the new LEAF:

Eversource's customers can bring their electricity bill to Nissan dealers and purchase LEAFs for $3,000 cheaper through July 2.

***UPDATE: Eversource has informed us that the discount applies for its customers in three states: Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire.

"For more information about the Nissan LEAF and the offer for Eversource customers, and to download the flyer to take to a local Nissan dealership, visit the electric vehicle section of Eversource.com. A recent Eversource electric bill is also necessary to participate in this exclusive promotion.

As part of its commitment to increased electric vehicle use in Massachusetts, Eversource is also helping to expand the availability of public charging stations. The energy company expects to soon be partnering with charging station companies as it readies the local electric grid for the installation of hundreds of new, strategically located stations across the commonwealth.

Over the next five years, Eversource will commit $45 million toward grid modifications to accommodate the new locations. To jumpstart the process, the company has recently issued a Request for Proposal to solicit qualified charging station vendors. When complete, this will be one of the largest deployments of electric charging station infrastructure in the country, and currently the largest outside of California."

Eversource Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer Penni Conner said:

“We want to help customers have access to the best local deals available on new zero-emission vehicles. We’re excited about the future of electric vehicles and to be doing our part to assist New England in achieving its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. We’re committed to saving our customers money and protecting our planet.”
