Potomac Edison customers in Maryland, which include about half of Germantown residents, and almost all of the folks who live in Clarksburg, Boyds, and Damascus can save $10,000 off the price of a 2017 all-electric Nissan LEAF – simply by showing their electric bill and a copy of the official program flyer to a participating Nissan dealership.
The special rebate offer is available from Nissan North America, Inc., only until September 30, or while supplies last, for all three Nissan LEAF trim models. With a list price ranging from $30,000 to $36,000, depending on model, customers have the potential to save about a third off the price of a Nissan LEAF just by being a Potomac Edison customer in Maryland.
“Electric vehicles are becoming more popular as people recognize the environmental and sustainability benefits they offer,” said James A. Sears, Jr., vice president of Potomac Edison. “This rebate from Nissan is designed to help get even more of these environmentally friendly vehicles on the road.”
To receive the rebate, Potomac Edison customers need to show their monthly billing statement and a copy of the promotional flyer available here to participating LEAF-certified Nissan dealerships listed below. Nissan suggests calling ahead to the dealership to confirm inventory. The rebate cannot be combined with other special lease, interest rate or rebate offers.
In addition, the purchaser could qualify for up to $7,500 in federal electric vehicle tax credits, plus be eligible for a one-time Maryland excise tax credit, up to $3,000 for a qualifying plug-in electric vehicle.
The advantages of driving an all-electric Nissan LEAF include:
No gasoline or oil changes
Up to 107-mile range, depending on driving conditions
Vehicle charging at home overnight
Real-time information display about battery range and driving efficiency
Virtually silent operation at low speeds and on highway.
Local Nissan dealers participating in this promotion with Potomac Edison include Criswell Nissan on Amaranth Drive in Germantown and Darcars Nissan on Indianola Drive in Rockville, as well as Younger Nissan on Grove Road in Frederick.
“We’re dedicated to the mass-adoption of electric vehicles, or EVs, in the United States, and Potomac Edison’s program shows that it’s interested in supporting EVs as well,” said Brian Maragno, director of EV marketing and sales strategy, Nissan North America. “Incentive programs like these help continue the positive momentum of EVs while providing a lower cost of entry for interested buyers.”
