Nissan has extended its incentive program to offer Salt River Project (SRP) customers the opportunity to purchase a 2017 Nissan LEAF from a participating dealership at a discounted rate. The deal, which has been extended to Sept. 30, has resulted in record LEAF sales for Arizona.
Arizona has been ranked fifth in the nation for Nissan LEAF sales in July as more of the electric vehicles were sold last month than in the previous four months combined. The incentive to SRP customers began July 1.
Through a group-purchase program, Nissan will provide a $10,000 incentive to eligible SRP customers who purchase the all-electric LEAF – with the added potential for a $7,500 federal tax credit.
To participate in Nissan’s incentive program, SRP customers must present the discount code, along with a copy of the customer’s SRP utility bill or e-bill, to a participating dealership. To access the discount code and dealership list, visit SRPnet.com/evoffer. This incentive program is a limited offer until Sept. 30, while supplies last, and may be subject to additional limitations and eligibility requirements. Nissan is responsible for paying all incentives.
“Our customers are clearly excited about what an electric vehicle can offer them,” said Kelly Barr, SRP senior director of environmental management and chief sustainability and compliance executive. “We are excited to work with Nissan to offer our customers an opportunity to invest in an electric vehicle that will save them money while helping the environment.”
Investing in an electric vehicle can result in real savings, improved efficiency and a cleaner environment, Barr said. Driving an electric vehicle can provide access to the HOV lane and save you money in several different ways such as fuel costs, vehicle license fees and maintenance costs.
