UPDATE: Here’s How To Get A BMW i3 For $10,000 Off
BMW introduced a bold $10,000 purchase incentive for all versions of the i3 and i3s (with or without REx – 2017 and 2018 Model Year) to all Southern California Edison customers and employees.
Yes, that’s $10,000 off, provided you’re in the SCE service area.
*UPDATE: Offer is available in New Jersey too through PSEG (see details at bottom of post).
The offer is available through April 30, 2018 and comes on top of the following:
- general SCE’s Clean Fuel Rewards Program of $450 reward for driving electric (applied to all plug-ins)
- up to $7,500 federal tax credit
- up to $2,500 California state rebate
- 24 months of free charging at EVgo network
…which makes the i3 pretty darn affordable.
The deal is only for purchase (no lease incentive).
Here is more on the incentive with links:
“The offer is good at authorized BMW dealerships and is good through April 30 or while vehicle supplies last, whichever comes first. You can find a dealership near you using BMW’s Test Drive & Dealer Locator.
To take advantage of the offer, customers should bring a completed Customer Information Form and a copy of their current SCE bill to their local BMW dealer. If you live at the address on the SCE bill but your name isn’t on it, you will need your driver’s license to reflect the same address on the bill.
SCE employees will need to present BMW with a completed SCE Employee Customer Information Form and a photo ID and either their employee badge or a recent pay stub. Immediate family members are also eligible for the offer as long as they can prove they live at the same address as the SCE employee.
Incentive programs such as the BMW discount and the Clean Fuel Rewards Program are ways SCE is helping to accelerate the adoption of EVs to create a clean energy future. To encourage SCE customers to use electric cars, the company is developing a pilot program to offer customer rebates for residential charging station installation.
The Charge Ready program expands the infrastructure for EV charging stations. More than 1,000 EV ports are being added across SCE’s service territory in places such as public parking lots, workplaces, hospitals, destination centers, and apartment and condominium complexes.”
“Drivers who go electric help reduce greenhouse gases and contribute to healthier, cleaner air for all Southern Californians. They also save money on maintenance and lower fuel costs. Each new BMW i3 comes with a Level 1 charger that can plug into a standard 120 volt residential outlet. For faster charging, customers can look into installing a charger at their home. Drivers can also charge at thousands of public use charging stations.
SCE also has different rate options to help customers charge their vehicle at home. These plans may include special rates offering lower costs for charging off-peak or at night. The EV Rate Assistant tool can help customers determine a rate that is best for them.”

Katie Sloan, SCE principal manager of Innovation, Development and Controls said:
“Widespread adoption of EVs is critical in meeting California’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. The transportation sector accounts for nearly half of California’s greenhouse gas emissions and more than 80 percent of its air pollution. As we add more renewable resources to the grid, electric vehicles will become increasingly beneficial to the environment.”
