2014 Model Year End Sales: Time to shop for an EV!


Source: Fix.com

Great background on Green Vehicles as you begin shopping for 2014 hybrids (HEV), Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV), Plug-In Hybrids (PHEV).

Auto makers are beginning their Model Year close out sales, where you can find some great deals on many of these Alternative Fuel Vehicles.  2014 Cadillac ELR and Chevrolet VOLT in particular.  Use TrueCar.com to see what prices people in Atlanta are paying for EVs.

Don’t overlook the used EV market where a 2-year old Nissan LEAF with reasonable mileage are retailing for $15- $18,000 (see AutoTrader.com).  Lots of battery life left and since the Federal Tax Credit was taken by the first owner, the used price reflects it so you don’t miss out on the tax credit (indirectly).
