PSEG Announces Joint Promotion with Nissan USA

Aug 25, 2017

PSEG 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: 

  • Start with a  $32,500 MSRP
  • Subtract the $10,000 Nissan USA rebate 
  • Subtract  $7,500 federal tax credit
  • Add  $0 for sales tax
  • Final cost of car --  $15,000   
  • ($32,500 list price is for a base model 2017 LEAF, the MSRP of cars available will vary based on features)

To take advantage of this offer, a customer must take a copy of their PSE&G bill and a copy of the flyer available on pseg.com/goelectric to a Nissan dealer. It is suggested that customers call ahead to make sure that a 2017 LEAF is available at the dealer.  The discount cannot be combined with other offers.  For more information, visit www.pseg.com/goelectric

In 2016, PSEG received recognition from the state of New Jersey for its leadership in promoting electric cars and investing in electric car infrastructure.  These efforts include:  

  •  PSEG runs the largest electric car employee incentive program in the state with more 45 chargers installed at company locations 
  •  Last month PSE&G, in partnership with EVgo, installed two fast chargers at the Molly Pitcher Service Area on the New Jersey Turnpike. 
  •  PSE&G has provided 135 car chargers to 23 New Jersey hospitals, colleges and businesses to encourage their employees to commute in electric cars. 
  •  PSE&G has 17 electric cars in its company fleet, as well as many partially electric-powered trucks.
