Update: Due to the County’s Shelter at Home Order through May 3, 2020, the discounts offered through our partner dealerships have been temporarily suspended. We anticipate that the discounts will be made available and extended once sales operations at the five participating dealerships have resumed.
This spring going electric is about to get easier! The City of San José has partnered with Capitol Chevy, Capitol Hyundai, Capitol Kia, Premier Nissan of Stevens Creek, and Stevens Creek Kia to offer extra discounts up to $3,200 on seven electric vehicle models from April 1 through June 30, 2020:
- Chevy Bolt
- Hyundai Ionic
- Hyundai Kona
- Kia Niro All Electric
- Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid
- Nissan Leaf Plus
- Nissan Leaf 40-kWh
Customers can stack these dealership discounts on top of local, state, and federal rebates for up to $13,500 in savings!
Electricity costs less than $2 for the equivalent gallon of gasoline, and maintenance over the lifetime of an EV is 40-70% lower than a conventional vehicle, resulting in even more savings. Plus, you’ll be reducing carbon emissions and air pollution by driving on clean, renewable energy from San José Clean Energy.
Low-income residents may qualify for additional incentives. Clean Cars for All offers up to $9,500 towards the purchase or lease of an EV or plug-in hybrid or $7,500 for public transportation (Clipper card) if you trade in a car from 2004 or older. Additionally, the Clean Vehicle Assistance Program offers a $5,000 rebate. Learn more.
Learn more about each model, discounts, incentives, and FAQs. These extra limited-time discounts are offered exclusively by the auto dealerships listed above, with no funding provided by the City of San José.
