Northern Coloradoans Can Buy the All-Electric 2016 Nissan LEAF for 65% off MSRP through Drive Electric Northern Colorado Partnership
Drive Electric Northern Colorado and Tynan’s Nissan team up for the second time to launch the 2016 Nissan LEAF group buy, allowing community members exclusive access to the all-electric LEAF at 65 percent off retail price.
Fort Collins, Colo. –Drive Electric Northern Colorado (DENC), a partnership between the City of Fort Collins, City of Loveland, Colorado State University, and the Electrification Coalition, announced today its second group buy for the Nissan LEAF in collaboration with Tynan’s Nissan, offering the next-generation 2016 LEAF electric vehicle (EV) at a discount of up to 65 percent off retail price. DENC’s first group buy in winter 2015 saw EV adoption in Northern Colorado increase to more than three times the national average, driven by the program’s appeal and strong support from community members. With a new, longer range LEAF now on dealership lots, DENC has decided to bring the program back again for March 2016.
Tynan’s Nissan in Fort Collins teamed up with DENC to offer the nation’s best-selling all-electric car to Northern Coloradoans at a pre-negotiated, discounted price through the group buy program. From now until March 31, consumers are able to purchase a LEAF S for $11,400 or a LEAF SV for $14,100 after potential savings including state and federal tax credits up to $13,500 and a pre-negotiated discounted price from Tynan’s. The dealership has also included a fleet pricing option through the group buy, allowing businesses to purchase a new LEAF S for just $8,800.
The 2016 LEAF SV boasts an extended range of 107 miles, while the LEAF S has an all-electric range of 84 miles. Northern Colorado community members who buy a new LEAF will also receive 24 months of complimentary charging through Nissan’s No Charge to Charge program, six free days of a gasoline-powered rental car for long-distance trips, three years of roadside assistance, and the many benefits of driving electric including less spending on fuel and maintenance, no vehicle emissions, and reducing dependence on oil.
Supplies are limited for certain models, so be sure to act quickly to take advantage of this incredible deal, and never pay for gas again!
Northern Colorado’s appetite for innovative electric vehicles is powered in part by the comprehensive EV ecosystem that DENC has built in Loveland and Fort Collins, accelerating EV adoption through an integrated and holistic approach that includes education, outreach, and collaboration with private- and public-sector partners.
DENC works hand-in-hand with 58 business and community supporters, collaborates with 20 local companies and organizations to provide Northern Coloradans with EV charging infrastructure at their workplaces and has expanded EV charging infrastructure to include more than 30 charging stations for public use—so that EV drivers are never more than six miles from a charge.
Northern Coloradans are highly educated about electric vehicles, their technologies, and their benefits. More than 6,000 people in the region have test driven an EV through the 63 Ride and Drive events DENC has hosted over the past three years, and more than 114,000 people have learned about how they can “drive electric” through DENC’s education and outreach campaigns.
