Living in Silicon Valley or CA as a whole, we do have lots of incentive to drive an EV (Electric Vehicle), with federal tax credit of $7500, rebate $2500 and $800, that’s a total of $10800 off the price of any qualified EV, we can also get the CarPool purple sticker expires Jan 2023. Last month, VW had a great deal for 2019 e-Golf which discounted $10400 off the sticker price with mandatory of financing @5.9% with VW credit and maximum down payment of $5000. That’s the deal we got with Team Volkswagen Hayward, our excellent and knowledgeable Vlad helped us through the quick and painless buying process.
For math purpose, the sticker price $33475 – $10400 – $10800 = $12275 + tax and interests. The financing can be replaced after 3-6 months if we can find better deal.
