SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) today announced that PG&E customers can save $3,000 on the purchase of a new 2018 Nissan LEAF electric vehicle (EV). This offer adds to existing state and federal discounts available to customers in California to help support the state's clean transportation goal of having five million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2030.
At any authorized Nissan dealership, interested customers can show a recent copy of their PG&E bill, a valid photo ID and the flyer with the Fleet Certification Code found here. Family members are also eligible if they prove with a driver's license that they reside at the same address as the customer on the PG&E bill. The discount is taken off the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) for the purchase or finance of a 2018 Nissan LEAF EV and is available through July 2, 2018.
"Electric vehicles are a critical part of creating cleaner air and meeting California's climate goals. Making it easier for customers to adopt EVs helps drivers reduce their environmental impact while supporting our clean energy future – a win for both our customers and the state," said Steve Malnight, PG&E Corporation's senior vice president of Strategy and Policy.
For more information on the offer, PG&E customers can view the FAQ. Customers can contact any authorized Nissan dealership with additional questions.
Existing discounts for EVs
In addition to the discount offered by Nissan, other available incentives could further reduce the cost of a Nissan LEAF EV by approximately 50 percent. PG&E recommends customers research other discounts and incentives, including:
Federal Tax Credit: Customers could be eligible for up to $7,500 in federal tax credits. PG&E recommends customers review details closely and consult a tax accountant or Certified Public Accountant for specific information.
California State Rebate: Customers could be eligible for an additional $2,500 off the Nissan LEAF through the California state rebate administered by the California Air Resources Board.
PG&E's Clean Fuel Rebate: PG&E residential, electric customers who are EV drivers can apply for the company's one-time $500 Clean Fuel Rebate. The rebate is part of California's statewide Low Carbon Fuel Standard initiative, which aims to reduce transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging the adoption of clean fuels like electricity.
PG&E customers living in certain areas such as San Joaquin Valley could be eligible for additional EV discounts.
PG&E Ongoing Support for EVs in California
Committed to increasing adoption of clean vehicles in the state, PG&E continues its efforts to make it easier for customers to make the switch to EVs. On PG&E's residential EV rate plans, customers pay the equivalent of $1.20 per gallon to charge their vehicle overnight. Customers can learn more about EVs by viewing PG&E's online resources and get help determining which rate plan makes sense for them.
Recently, PG&E announced that its customers can save $10,000 on the purchase of a new 2017 or 2018 BMW i3 or i3s EV through May 31, 2018. At any authorized BMW dealership, interested customers can show a recent copy of their PG&E bill and the filled out BMW customer information form found here.
Through its EV Charge Network program, PG&E aims to help accelerate the adoption of EVs in California by increasing access to charging. Partnering with business customers and EV charging companies, PG&E will install 7,500 EV chargers at condominiums, apartment buildings and workplaces across Northern and Central California, including at sites in disadvantaged communities.

LEAF still charges the battery without any cooling, which would be a big problem form AZ/CA/NW residents. Resale value is also miserable. Most importantly, I don't think Nissan guaranty the battery capacity after certain years. It just guaranty it moves after 8/10 years.

You'd better lease it instead of after a few years you owe more than it worths. I won't touch it unless dealer gives >5k discount.

So you want a $5k discount on top of a $13.5k discount on a $30k car? Good luck with that.

LITHIUM-ION BATTERY COVERAGE
The lithium-ion battery coverage period is 96 months or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. This warranty covers any repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship subject to the exclusions listed under the heading "WHAT IS NOT COVERED".

LITHIUM-ION BATTERY CAPACITY COVERAGE
In addition to the lithium-ion Battery Coverage for defects in materials or workmanship, the lithium-ion battery is also warranted against capacity loss below nine bars of capacity as shown on the vehicle's battery capacity level gauge for 96 months or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. This warranty covers any repairs needed to return battery capacity to a level of nine remaining bars on the vehicle's battery capacity level gauge. If possible, the lithium-ion battery components will be repaired or replaced, and the original lithium ion battery will be returned to the vehicle. If necessary, the lithium ion battery will be replaced with a new, remanufactured or factory reconditioned lithium-ion battery. Any repair or replacement made under this Lithium-Ion Battery Capacity Coverage may not return your lithium-ion battery to an "as new" condition with all 12 battery capacity bars, but it will provide the vehicle with a capacity level of nine bars or more on the battery capacity level gauge. This Lithium-Ion Battery Capacity Coverage is subject to the exclusions listed under the heading "WHAT IS NOT COVERED."
That being said, I'm still wary about the battery degredation due to the lack of cooling. Supposedly it'll be present on the 2019 models?

Why do you think it is not reachable? I know it is different kind of vehicle, but right now Prius Prime can be have with >5k off 30k sticker price, In addition you have 4500+1500 tax rebate in California, PG&E provides $500 and our county provides $1000.

5k off 30k LEAF is not unreasonable and we could see it later this year.

Is this a good deal? My wife has a camry hybrid with $16k left financing. If i trade it in, will I be getting a good deal? Or not?

trade value for her camry is $10k and if I trade it in, there will be $6k on top of the MSRP. if the leaf is 30k then deduct the $13.5k in rebates, Im looking at $23k financing and a brand new car.

decisions.. decisions..

No, you should get the regular state rebate ($2500 in CA) whether you buy or lease. The dealer gets the tax credit, which is why you often see big lease discounts on ev and phev vehicles. You can also get the $500 PG&E rebate if you lease. So $3000 total back in NorCal when you lease.
