Nissan is offering Pacific Power customers a $3,000 discount on new 2018 LEAF electric vehicles through the end of September. Interested buyers simply need to bring a copy of their Pacific Power energy bill and a flyer downloaded from the Pacific Power website. The discount applies to the manufacturer's sticker price on the LEAF.
"Electric cars can be a great choice for many customers," said Cory Scott, director of customer solutions for Pacific Power. "They can be more affordable to own and operate, and better for the environment too."
The discount comes from Nissan directly, not from Pacific Power. The LEAF is also eligible for both the Federal and Oregon State tax credits. Taken together, the credits amount to $13,000 off the retail price of the car.
Nissan completely redesigned its successful Leaf electric vehicle for 2018, adding battery capacity to raise the driving range by over 40 miles to about 150 miles. The 2018 Leaf also offers 37% more power than prior years, up to 147 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque.
Another new feature in the Leaf is the ability to perform Level 2 charging without a dedicated charging station. The Leaf offers a charging cable that will plug into a standard 120-volt outlet or a 30-amp 240-volt outlet, which most houses already have for the clothes dryer.
The Pacific Power discount program is available through September 30.
