September 26-October 4th is National Drive Electric Week. For those Crotonites considering buying an Electric Vehicle, now’s the time. Nissan of New Rochelle, along with Sustainable Westchester, is offering $5500 cash back on a 2019 Nissan Leaf. Combined with the $2,000 New York State Drive Clean Rebate, and other discounts, there is the potential for up to $12,000 total savings off MSRP. The savings, of course, don’t stop there. There’s no need for an oil change with an EV car because there’s no oil. EVs have lower maintenance costs—a gas engine has around 2,000 moving parts, an EV’s engine around 20! And, of course, no need for the weekly pitstop at the gas pump. Since most road trips are less than 30 miles, the Nissan Leaf’s 150 to 226 miles per charge should be plenty of charge time for the average journey.
Croton is in the vanguard of clean transportation, with charging stations at the municipal building and train station, not to mention our new electric and hybrid police cars replacing older gas-sucking cruisers. If you want to keep Croton green, consider this deal brought to you by Sustainable Westchester and Nissan of New Rochelle.
