Chevy Chase Acura Nissan has been an active supporter of Bethesda Green since the beginning. The dealership has recognized the need for green initiatives and sustainability efforts for the growth and health of the community and beyond. This goes back 40 years when the dealership offered for sale the all-electric Citicar in 1974.
Today, the dealership is proud to represent Nissan in the market with the unbelievable zero-emission Leaf. Chevy Chase Nissan was the number one Leaf dealer in the Mid-Atlantic region last year and is working hard to maintain that position for 2014. The Maryland General Assembly has also contributed to making the Leaf a go-to car for its constituents by passing a bill giving buyers and lessees an extra$3,000 plus up to $400 for a charging station subsidy and the ability to travel in a Maryland HOV lane with a single occupant. Nissan is offering 2 years of free charging at offsite charging stations. The federal government is still offering a $7,500 tax credit. All of this is on top of the $1,500 Chevy Chase Nissan/Bethesda Green Leaf Advantage discount.
The all-new 2014 & 2015 Nissan Leaf brings a tear to the gas station owner’s eye!
Here is an example what it means to a Bethesda Green member:
2014 Nissan Leaf SV MSRP $33,020
Maryland tax and fees $ 2,500
Less federal tax credit ($7,500)
Maryland tax credit ($3,000)
Chevy Chase Nissan Leaf Advantage ($1,500)
Net price $23,520
Maryland charging station credit up to ($400)
Drive in any Maryland HOV lane with single occupant
Nissan free charging for 2 years
Fuel savings for a vehicle that normally gets 20 mpg and travels 12,000 per year is $3,440 per year or $286 per month. And this 2014 Nissan Leaf SV lease is $285 per month, so basically the car is free and the state will send you an additional $1,000 in cash.
