NEWARK, N.J., Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PSEG today announced a joint electric car promotion with Nissan USA to offer PSE&G customers a $10,000 rebate off the MSRP of the 2017 all-electric LEAF. The promotion is open to customers of PSE&G and is available through September 30, 2017 or until 2017 LEAFs are out of stock (whichever occurs first).
"Electric cars can be a powerful tool in combatting climate change and reducing other pollutants – especially in a state like New Jersey where roughly half of our electricity comes from air emissions-free nuclear," said Courtney McCormick, VP Renewables and Energy Solutions for PSE&G. "There are an increasing number of electric cars being offered that meet the needs of different consumers. We encourage our customers to check out the all-electric LEAF to see if it is right for their driving needs."
In addition to the $10,000 Nissan rebate off the MSRP, customers could be eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit. The sale of all-electric cars, such as the 2017 LEAF, is not subject to sales tax in New Jersey. The 2017 LEAF gets an average 107 miles per charge.
"I salute PSE&G for its leadership in electric cars and for this innovative promotion," said Tim Eustace, Chairman of the New Jersey Assembly Environmental Committee and a LEAF owner. "Increasing the number of electric cars on New Jersey's roads is an important component to an overall climate change strategy. Electric car owners – of all models – are the most satisfied car owners in America. As a LEAF owner for more than five years, I urge customers of PSE&G to consider if now might be a good time to see if a LEAF, or another electric car model, might be right for them."
PSE&G outlined the potential benefits of these incentives:
