California already has some of the most generous incentives to get an electric car, but people living in San Diego are being further enticed to go the plug-in route.
Through September 30th, San Diego Gas & Electric will offer its utility customers $10,000 toward a BMW i3 or Nissan Leaf. That’s in addition to the state of California’s offer of up to $2,500 in rebates on plug-ins, as well as the $7,500 federal tax credit. Depending on models, SDG&E customers could get up to $20,000 in credits and rebates. That’s a huge amount of incentives, especially on a Nissan Leaf that starts at $31,565. The utility company also offers an annual bill credit of up to $200 for driving an electric vehicle.
