Thank you Audball, called the dealer...they said they are doing $10000 off msrp till Monday. This is better than the $124 lease I got for the 2016 eGolf.

$33,440.00 msrp
-$10,000.00 dealer discount
-$7,500.00 Fed credit
-$2,500.00 state credit
-$2,500.00 work credit
-$500.00 utility credit
$10,440.00
$1,933.80 tax
$425.00 dmv
$65.00 doc
$12,863.80 OTD

I am guessing they are doing this in the bay area as...they are probably getting killed with Tesla Sales. Thinking about driving up to Bay doing the Tesla factory tour, and driving back in the eGolf. 500 miles...4 charging sessions at VW..4 hours a piece..probably 2 days.

don't forget the $500 SCCA credit also, to make the deal even sweeter. Good luck

And one more thing, if I were you, I wouldn't hesitate to ship it. I got mine shipped to Oregon for $750 from Hanlees. Yours would be less.

Your Out the Door price is your cost out the door of the dealership $22440 plus sales tax 1933.80, $425 dmv, and $65 documentary fee. Look at your Sales order and what the bottom line is. $24863.80.

The rest of the stuff is government subsidies or rebates.

Only the Federal $7500 is a tax credit, that same stuff green people bitch about the oil companies getting too.

Keep in mind, electricity is a utility... if there are power outages from everyone running their AC's at home on the grid, charging your electric vehicle will be the first to be chopped, in terms of permissions to consume electricity. There will be no such nonsense for petroleum powered cars that run on a free market source of energy.

OTD was independent of time. It is understood that rebates and credits have their own timeline. Certain benefits like utilities and work related benefits and specific to locality and place of work YMMV. OTD is meant for overall costs. Additionally ther is $500 interest that will need to be paid for the 5.99% for 3 months.

I have solar so I am covered in case of an outage. Hoping Tesla will push a software update to be able to run my house off of my car.

What the hell are you on about? Why are you spreading FUD about electric cars? How many times has your utility blocked you from charging your car at home? Why did you bring up oil companies in this discussion?

Your post added nothing to the conversation.

Sports Car Club of America. I haven't heard of them doing any discounts for the e-Golf, just the Golf R. But worth looking in to.

Also do basic Googling to check for any city/county and local utility rebates. Here in Santa Cruz there's currently a $800 rebate for PG&E customers (don't know how long that'll be around since they're going bankrupt) and a Monterey and Santa Cruz county rebate that's very limited time.

Totally agreed. Seemed wildly off topic and irrelevant.
