Last month, we detailed the world’s first mass-produced all-electric car, the 2011 Nissan Leaf, which will go on sale this December for about $33,000. However, we all know that there are a bewildering number of incentives – both federal and state – for buying a green car. Now GreenCarReports.com is reporting how eligible buyers can combine multiple incentives to take home a 2011 Nissan Leaf for 63% off MSRP – that’s only $12,280!
Of course, there are only a handful of potential buyers who live in the right state (CA), the right county (one of eight that comprise San Joaquin Valley), and work for the right employer (Sony) to take advantage of the full effect of these savings. Still, it’s an interesting exercise in seeing just how powerful these incentives can be. To get a Leaf for less than $15,000, the rest of us will have to wait for Nissan Leafs to show up on used car and buy here pay here car lots, presumably.
