Electric Car Discount for UMKC Employees

For a limited time, all Nissan dealerships in the Greater Kansas City area are offering a $10,000 Fleetail incentive on 2016 and 2017 model year LEAFs to UMKC staff, faculty, students, and alumni with valid ID.

This special pricing on 2016 and 2017 Nissan LEAFs during Earth Month is the perfect opportunity to benefit the environment and benefit your wallet. 2016 and 2017 Nissan LEAFs save you almost $1,000 a year on gas, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, don’t contribute to air pollution, and are powered by energy generated in your home state. Not only is this next generation of auto technology quiet, easy, and fun to drive, but it also has increased battery capacity and requires less maintenance.

To take advantage of this limited time offer, simply download the flier from marc.org/UMKC-EV, bring the flier to a KC metro Nissan dealer at the time of purchase, show a valid ID, and purchase and receive a Nissan LEAF by June 30, 2017! UMKC ID cards, UMKC diplomas, and UMKC transcripts are all acceptable forms of a valid ID for this offer.

This offer is only valid on the retail purchase for 2016 and 2017 LEAFs while supplies last. The offer is effective from May 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017.
