For the rest of the year, consumers in the northern part of Colorado state can take advantage of a remarkable discount on the world's best-selling electric car.

Through December 31, the dealership Tynan's Nissan is offering $9,007 off the retail price of a 2015 Nissan Leaf with an 84-mile range rating.

Combined with state and Federal income-tax credits that total $13,500, that brings the effective price of a 2015 Leaf to just $10,600.

Combined with state and Federal income-tax credits that total $13,500, that brings the effective price of a 2015 Leaf to just $10,600.

Colorado has one of the most generous remaining state incentives for purchase of a battery-electric vehicle, a $6,000 state income-tax credit for those taxpayers who can take advantage of it.

And the Leaf qualifies for a $7,500 Federal income-tax credit, again for those consumers whose tax situation permits taking the full credit.

I'm jealous!

Though being where I live a total electric wouldn't be entirely practical. A hybrid of extend range would make more sense.

And many things are far apart here.

Hell, you could drive in a (relatively) straight line and still not leave the province.

The Nissan Leaf is a good car if you're in an urban area but if you have to drive long distances then not so great. My neighbor has a Nissan Leaf and she loves it. She usually only travels in it in about a 10 - 15 miles radius from home and there are a number of charging stations near where she drives so if the battery is low she can get it charged. I'm seriously thinking of getting a hybrid electric vehicle as my next car, probably in another 7 years, mainly for the extended range. I do most of my driving on city streets so the electric aspect of the vehicle would be of most benefit for me.

(meant to say 'in a day')

I'm in Ontario. It just seems like that, when you do it in SK.

Cool! Of course as the resident Volt owner of the RFL board I'm kind of partial to my Volt.

If they get the range up there a ways, such as 200 miles Chevy and Tesla are talking about in their future products, I would certainly consider a Nissan Leaf. The 83 mile range doesn't really cut it for me since I do occasionally make longer trips and need the extended range.

Actually, the 2nd generation Leaf will have approximately 200 miles range as well. The upcoming Leaf is the Gen 1.5. So GM, Tesla, and Nissan will all have 200 mile range EVs for about the same price, in the $35K price range.

We don't just talk about Teslas at the Tesla Motors Club. Not everyone is a Tesla owner either. Some are just wannabe owners, some are waiting for the 3, some are just fans.

Apparently, gonna have to start a "gofundme" campaign to raise ten-grand.

I sure hope I can count on the millions of visitors to this site to help turn my dream of owning such an awesome machine into reality.

TIA.

Last summer when on the Great 2015 47of74 Road Trip I spent some time in Minneapolis and made sure to stop at the Tesla store there. Actually got to test drive a Model S.
