Xcel Energy has made a bold commitment to reduce carbon emissions of energy generating facilities to zero by 2050. With transportation1 now being the number one carbon emission source, Xcel Energy is supporting you with ways to drive electric. Driving electric has never been easier, more beneficial to our environment and affordable with the help of rebates and tax credits.
Now is a good time to act. Xcel Energy customers in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Colorado can drive the all-electric 2018 or 2019 Nissan LEAF® with a special manufacture's rebate of $3,500 until July 1, 2019.
The Nissan LEAF: Simply Amazing
There are good reasons this is the world’s best-selling electric car2 with a proven track record of nearly a decade of LEAF models on the road. Here are more specific features:
- 150 mile range
- 147 horsepower
- Fewer moving parts overall deliver the unexpected perk of lower maintenance
- Remote access for door locking, climate control, and even a parked car finder app
- Nissan ProPILOT Assist – helps maintain your speed, keep you centered in your lane and assists with sudden braking requirements
Here’s how Edmunds describes the comfort of the LEAF
It's hard to find fault with the Leaf's basic comfort. It delivers a smooth ride, and the front seats are genuinely comfortable. It's a very quiet and serene place to spend time thanks to the inherent quietness of its electric propulsion system4.
Even more potential savings
If you’re new to electric cars, this is good news because you may be able to take advantage of an income tax credit of up to $7,500 for the purchase of a new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle.
