Drive Nissan Leaf 2 years for free in Georgia YMMV
Thread DetailsLast Edited by xpeng December 15, 2013 at 02:18 AM
Heard a few others did this, so I leased a Nissan Leaf today too.
$0 down, $80 for tag, no other tax or fee, $250/month, 24 month, 12K miles/year, $395 when returning the car. No maintenance needed (just tire rotation). $5000 GA income tax credit (forward up to 5 years). You need to pay insurance.
After the saving on gas, you may drive this can for free for 2 years, or save some money depends on what car you're driving right now. My SUV can run 15/19 miles/gal, so I may save some money, even better than free.
If you pay less than $2500 GA tax each year, then you may not take the full advantage.
And you can use HOV lane.
I know 2 dealers can do this price, and I believe any dealer will price match.

Fellows, if I read it correctly, Leas'er will get, 20% of the cost of lease. i.e., max 1200. Not free or 5000. Don't think so ? Give ur math.
(b) A tax credit is allowed against the tax imposed under this article to a
taxpayer for the purchase or lease of a new low-emission vehicle or zero emission
vehicle that is registered in the State of Georgia. The amount of the credit shall
(2) For any new zero emission vehicle, 20 percent of the cost of such vehicle
or $5,000.00, whichever is less.
Read that section over a few times, "20 percent of the cost of such vehicle or $5,000, whichever is less". GA state tax commissioner is not going to consider the MSRP of the vehicle as your "cost" when leasing. Your cost will be what you actually pay to the lease. Thereby, this deal is just a way to get audited and the book thrown at you. Your total credit off a 2 year lease will be $1200 (if you exclude the tag fee/return fee). ($600/yr on this lease).
BTW: The charging station credit is for commercial public access charging.
1. Tax credits are allowed only for business enterprises which include any business
