Cherokee Nation citizen Elizabeth Toombs and Nissan USA Electric Vehicle Business Development Manager Brian Zelis view a 2019 Nissan LEAF

The Cherokee Nation and Nissan USA representatives announced a limited time rebate for Cherokee Nation citizens and employees purchasing a Nissan LEAF.

The limited time rebate of $3,500 for Cherokee Nation citizens and employees plus the up to $7,500 in federal tax incentives could equal up to $11,000 in total savings for tribal citizens and employees purchasing a Nissan LEAF before the special rebate offer expires April 1.

To receive the Nissan LEAF rebate offer, individuals must present a participating Nissan dealer proof of current employment at Cherokee Nation or a copy of the person’s Cherokee Nation citizenship card, and also a copy of the special rebate flyer, available in the quick links section at www.cherokee.org.

The rebate offer is only available to Cherokee Nation citizens and employees living in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

The partnership between the Cherokee Nation and Nissan USA is another example of the tribe’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint. In 2017, the tribe celebrated the completion of the first tribal solar canopy car charging station built by a tribe in Oklahoma. The canopy, located at the W.W. Keeler Tribal Complex in Tahlequah, is capable of charging up to eight electric vehicles and provides about 58,000 kilowatt hours of electricity to the tribal complex each year. The Cherokee Nation now has three electric vehicles in the tribe’s fleet.

Cherokee Nation’s business arm, Cherokee Nation Businesses, brought the first super charging stations to northeast Oklahoma through a deal with Tesla Motors. The electric fueling stations located at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa can charge a vehicle in about 15 minutes.

For more information on the Nissan LEAF rebate offer, contact Pat Gwin at 918-453-5000, ext. 5704.
