If you live in California and can act fast, there is a purchase opportunity that is completely unheard of in the wild world of car sales. It’s not a free car, but it’s heading that direction. Got your attention? Here is the offer.
Through the end of March 2021, 18 days from when this story was posted, California residents can get a 2021 Toyota Mirai FCEV (fuel cell electric vehicle) for a steep discount. Here’s the offer for either the Mirai XLE or Limited models. All prices are off MSRP.
- $20,000 cash incentive
- $8,000 Federal tax credit
- $4,500 California rebate (there are some income restrictions on this)
This means the $49,500 XLE model could be yours for a net of $17,000. The pricier and well-equipped $66,000 Limited would drop to $33,500, less than the cost of the base Avalon.
But wait, there’s more!
All 2021 Mirai purchasers get:
- 0% interest for 72 months through Toyota financing
- $15,000 fuel credit for three years for those who lease (up to six years to use $15,000 of fuel if purchased or financed through Toyota)
- 21 days free rental of a Toyota, if you need to go further than the estimated 402 miles of driving range for the XLE, or 357 miles for the Limited
- HOV lane sticker
- Three-year/35,000-mile maintenance coverage
- Three-year/unlimited mile roadside assistance
- Eight-year/100,000-mile fuel cell electric vehicle component warranty
