The City of Tacoma and Tacoma Public Utilities have partnered together to launch the Electric Vehicle Discount Program. Participants could receive a discount of up to $3,000 on the purchase or lease of an electric vehicle at participating dealerships, going on now through the end of November, or while supplies last. Vehicle models included in the program are the Nissan Leaf, BMW i3 and plug-in hybrid models, MINI Cooper Countryman plug-in hybrid, Prius Prime, Ford Fusion Energi, and Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid.
This is a pre-negotiated pricing program with local dealerships and vendors to offer discounts on electric vehicles as well as home charging equipment and electric bicycles. To participate, visit cityoftacoma.org/electricvehiclediscount and sign up for the program using the online form. Once signed up, there is no obligation to participate.
Community members interested in learning the basics can attend a free Electric Vehicle 101 workshop running September through November. The workshops, offered in partnership with the Tacoma Public Library, will help attendees understand how EVs fit their lifestyle and budget, their impact on the environment, the experience of driving and charging an EV, and incentive and financing options. For a full list of workshop dates, visit MyTPU.org.
