Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) customers can save $5,000 off the price of a 2018 all-electric Nissan LEAF – or receive zero percent financing for 72 months – simply by showing their electric bill and a copy of the official program flyer to a participating Nissan dealership.
In addition, the purchaser could qualify for up to $7,500 in federal electric vehicle tax credits, and the New Jersey Sales and Use Tax Act provides a tax exemption for qualified zero-emission vehicles.
Depending on the model, the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) list price for the Nissan LEAF begins at under $30,000. The enhanced incentives are available from Nissan North America Inc., through September 30, 2018, or while supplies last. Earlier this year, Nissan offered a $3,000 rebate for JCP&L customers who purchased a LEAF model.
The 2018 LEAF features a 40 percent increase in range, a more powerful motor, and new exterior and interior styling compared to previous LEAF models.
To receive the $5,000 rebate or zero percent financing, JCP&L customers need to show their monthly billing statement and a copy of the promotional flyer available here www.firstenergycorp.com/nissanrebateNJ to participating LEAF-certified Nissan dealerships listed at https://www.nissanusa.com/nissandealers/. Nissan suggests calling ahead to the dealership to confirm inventory.
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 roughly equivalent to gasoline at $1 a gallon.
- No oil changes
- Vehicle charging at home overnight
- Virtually silent operation at low speeds and on highway
- No emissions.
