Preferred Pricing

Limited-Time Savings on New EVs
June 2021

Save Time and Money When You Buy Electric

Drive Clean Bay Area, a nonprofit collaboration, is here to help you drive emission-free, and our preferred pricing campaign delivers! Twice a year we organize limited-time savings events with discounted pricing on a variety of new battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. With preferred pricing you can still take full advantage of all government and utility incentives. Best yet, we’ve done all the legwork to make it convenient and affordable to drive electric today.

We partner with Cartelligent, a new-car buying and leasing service with over 20 years of experience in California, to identify a variety of models and price points for the campaign. Cartelligent’s established relationships with car dealers and manufacturers help them pre-negotiate preferred pricing discounts, which we pass on to you. Sign up and we’ll notify you when we announce this year’s vehicles.

Your first step to a new EV

Leading up to our Preferred Pricing campaign, we offer free webinars, covering EV basics, like incentives and tax credits, available and coming models, and how to charge at home and on the road. Not sure if an EV is right for you or which one would fit your lifestyle? Join us on Zoom! These webinars are led by an experienced EV owner and provide plenty of time for questions and answers. There’s no pressure to buy, just unbiased advice and an opportunity to learn how to plug in and feel good!

Find the best EV for your lifestyle and budget

One of the best ways to decide on your new ride is to hear from other drivers. We’ve gathered driver testimonials about their experiences driving electric, including EV Tours of specific vehicles. Check out our Youtube channel to hear what other Bay Area drivers have to say!

Whether you’re buying or leasing an EV, there are several things to consider including what range you’ll need, styling, how many seats, all-wheel drive, and more. We’ve developed an EV New Buyer Checklist to help you along the way.
