Southern California Edison Unleashes $450 Electric Car Rebate For Everyone

 Earth News  Comments Off on Southern California Edison Unleashes $450 Electric Car Rebate For Everyone
May 302017
 

Southern California Edison is offering people who drive a plug-in or electric car a one-time cash rebate of $ 450. What makes it different from other EV rebate programs is that it applies to second and third owners and those who lease cars as well. Typically, an EV rebate like the federal tax credit only helps new-car buyers. If someone leases a new EV, those rebates go to the leasing company (which is often a division of the manufacturer). Although that may help lower the customer’s lease payment, it puts no cash in the driver’s pocket

Rebecca Lindblad, a Kelley Blue Book analyst, said the Bolt — with its 240 miles of range — brings a “new element” to the electric car market
