SCE Customers Can Get Up to $6,000 Off a Nissan LEAF

The cash-back offer for the utility’s residential customers makes it more affordable to drive electric.

Southern California Edison residential customers can drive electric for less — Nissan is offering up to $6,000 cash back on a 2020 LEAF or LEAF Plus and up to $3,000 on 2021 models.

The offer is available for 2020 and 2021 LEAFs purchased from new dealer stock. The cash back is in addition to any available incentives such as the federal electric vehicle tax credit, California clean vehicle rebates and California Clean Fuel Reward.

Customers have until March 31, 2021, or while vehicle supplies last, whichever comes first, to take advantage of the offer at participating Nissan dealerships. You can find a dealership near you using Nissan’s dealer locator.

Incentive programs such as Nissan’s cash-back offer program help drivers make the switch to emission-free driving. Drivers who go electric help reduce greenhouse gases and contribute to healthier, cleaner air for all Southern Californians.

They also save money on maintenance and lower fuel costs. Fueling an EV is equivalent to paying less than $2 per gallon of gasoline. SCE also has different rate options to help customers save money. These plans may include special rates offering lower costs for charging during off-peak hours or at night.

Making the switch from gasoline-fueled vehicles to EVs is critical to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution since in California transportation accounts for nearly 80% of the state’s air pollution and more than 40% of all GHG emissions.

SCE’s recent analysis, Pathway 2045, concludes that 75% or 26 million of the cars on California’s roads will need to be electric by 2045 in order to meet the state’s clean energy and carbon-neutrality goals.
