I'm interested in folks guesses on how Nissan will deal with the federal tax credit and state rebates. I'm no expert, but from what I have heard/read: 1. Lease As the owner, Nissan (its lease company) will receive the federal $7500 credit but will pass that amount to you as an incentive, so you get a lease payment that reflects a car that is $7500 less than starting price. That gets the payment to the $349 number. Question: What about the CA and other state incentives? Will the $5k in CA go to Nissan (its lease co) or to the person leasing it? If to Nissan, will they pass that $5k on to lower the lease from $349 to TBD? 2. Purchase Sounds like its MSRP and you get or dont get it back on taxes later. Question: Think Nissan will offer balloon payments so that buyers can finance $33k - $12.5k (CA) as a $20.5k payment with a $12.5k balloon payment due at month 13 or something? That sure would help. Cost is a big factor in my decision, I really like the concept and would like to support Nissan in this and hope they coordinate the rebates/credits more.
