(Albuquerque, NM) - PNM is pleased to announce that starting this week, its customers can purchase a 2018 Nissan LEAF® electric vehicle (EV) with a $3,000 instant discount off the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) at Albuquerque and Santa Fe dealerships. This offer is in addition to $7,500 in potential federal tax credits. This opportunity is another part of the PNM effort to accelerate clean transportation in New Mexico and help customers save.

We are proud at PNM to support programs like this that make it easier for customers to make the switch to carbon free vehicles,” said Becky Teague, vice president of PNM external affairs. “Using EVs instead of gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles helps reduce the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and provides other benefits such as lower operating and maintenance costs, noise reduction, and tax incentives. PNM is committed to helping increase the adoption of clean vehicles in the state and will continue to seek new ways to make it easier for our customers to make the switch.

PNM has been working to support electric vehicle adoption for many years. It has already electrified 31 vehicles in its fleet, which includes both electric cars, bucket trucks, and will continue to add more when possible.
