2016 Nissan LEAF® Federal & California Tax Credits Add Up

Here at your hometown Modesto, CA Nissan new and used car dealership, Central Valley Nissan, we have some exciting news. Thanks to a combination of federal and California state tax credits, you can save a bundle of cash. Currently, the federal government is offering a substantial tax credit of up to $7,500 when you purchase a new LEAF from our Modesto Nissan dealership. But that’s just the beginning of the good news. The State of California also provides a tax credit of up to $2,500 for buying a new all-electric LEAF.

And residents living in the San Joaquin Valley are also eligible for an additional non-tax rebate of up to $3000. That’s a whopping total of up to up to $13,000 in both regional, federal and California tax rebates that significantly reduce of purchasing a new 2016 LEAF from our dealership. (Please contact a qualified tax professional to determine the exact impact of these rebates on your taxes.) These combined federal and state tax rebate programs make the amazing new 2016 LEAF incredibly affordable.


The New State Of State Of The Art

The remarkably advanced all-electric vehicle redefines “state-of-the-art.” The 2016 Nissan LEAF incorporates Nissan’s best thinking and most advanced all-electric technology. And when we say “all-electric,” we mean just plug in your LEAF, charge it up, and go. No harmful emissions, no more gasoline fill-ups. Not to mention that the LEAF is whisper quiet. Not having an engine sound may take a bit of getting used to, but it will be music to your ears.

What motivates the new 2016 Nissan LEAF from Central Valley Nissan? The answer is a cutting-edge 24kWh or available 30kWh rechargeable lithium-ion battery designed for years of carefree use. The battery that powers an 80kW AC synchronous electric motor that weighs less than half of traditional nickel-metal hydride batteries and generates twice the power. That creates 107 horsepower for near instant acceleration that is smooth as silk. Additionally, regenerative braking helps to charge the LEAF’s battery system. And for your peace of mind, Nissan covers this new battery technology for 96 months or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. You can also purchase additional Security+Plus® warranty coverage.

Unbelievable Fuel Economy & Range

Now let’s talk some spectacular numbers that will have you shaking your head in disbelief. When equipped with the 24kWh battery system, the LEAF achieves a remarkable 84 miles in range. When paired with the upgraded 30kWh battery, the range increases to a substantial 107 miles. That’s an astounding 126 equivalent miles per gallon! If you drive near this mileage or less during your daily commute, the Nissan LEAF will let you say “goodbye” to fueling up at a gas station. Now that’s what we call true freedom of movement.

Charging your Nissan LEAF is a relatively simple process when you install a special 240-volt home charging station. Nissan partners with reliable third-party vendors who can install your new charging station for you. Or, if you know your way around electrical systems, you can purchase a charging station and install it yourself. Once installed, you can fully charge your LEAF in about six hours. Additionally, the onboard navigation system on your LEAF will tell you exactly where you can locate available charging stations.

Spacious & High-Tech Interior

Step inside the aerodynamically styled 2016 Nissan LEAF and surround yourself with a surprisingly comfortable, luxurious, and tech-savvy environment. Able to seat five passengers, the four-door LEAF offers available rear seat created from special “Bio-Suede” material for an upmarket feel. An available heated leather steering wheel and heated front seats warm you up on those chilly mornings. Enjoy generous head and legroom, abundant storage, and lots of room for cargo; up to 30 cubic ft. with the rear seats folded flat, to be precise.

As you would expect from an all-electric vehicle this advanced, the Nissan LEAF offers an entirely new level of amazing technological innovation. Let’s start with the futuristic-looking drive selector that lets you engage drive, reverse, and park with a mere flick of the wrist. Move the shifter to B-Mode and improve both regenerative braking force as well as brake response.

Get behind the wheel of your new LEAF and survey an amazing compilation of intuitive and easy-to-use technology. The available Nissan Navigation System gives you the confidence to plot your route and arrive safely. A large, full-color touchscreen display provides you with key vehicle information, such as energy information, GPS-determined range, battery charge status, and more. The LEAF lets you take your entertainment to the next level with available SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. Stay connected to social media with hands-free text messaging powered by voice-recognition technology. You can also use the built-in Bluetooth® hands-free phone system to receive and make calls. The sleek instrument cluster’s Display Drive Computer instantly communicates a wide range of vital vehicle stats, keeping you in complete control of your LEAF.

You’ll also get a new view of your LEAF, thanks to the available Around View® Monitor that uses four cameras to create a virtual overhead view of your LEAF to get in and out of those tight spaces and alert you to any rear obstacles.

Speaking of technology, you can connect and control your LEAF via the available NissanConnectsm EV Information system. Download the app to your smartphone and use it to find nearby charging stations, schedule optimal off-peak charging times, and even remotely start your leaf or activate your LEAF’s climate control system. The app also aggregates and displays various performance parameters and a history of your driving record. It’s all there in the palm of your hand. And Nissan’s Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition lets you lock and unlock your vehicle by just tapping on the door handles or activating the key fob’s lock/unlock button.

A New Kind Of Power Rush

Step inside, hear that distinctive “power up” chime and head out on the highway. You’ll be amazed at how nimble the Nissan LEAF handles. Silent power is nearly instantaneous, thanks to the advanced 80kW AC synchronous electric motor. It is a driving experience that is beyond unique.

Of course, keeping you safe and secure while driving your LEAF is of paramount importance. That’s why it is equipped with advanced, dual-stage airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Traction Control, Zone Body front and rear energy-absorbing crumple zones and steering column, a tire-pressure monitoring system, vehicle immobilizer system, and vehicle security system, all standard.

You may confuse your Nissan LEAF with a shuttlecraft on a futuristic spacecraft; it’s that advanced. But in fact, the remarkable new Nissan LEAF is available today at your local Modesto new and used car dealership, Central Valley Nissan. And with the available tax credits as mentioned above, owning and driving a new Nissan LEAF is surprisingly affordable. Test drive the future today at Central Valley Nissan.

Top 10 2015 Memorial Day Weekend Stanislaus County Staycation Ideas

memorial-day-weekend-staycation-ideasMemorial Day: A solemn day of remembrance for the fallen. On this hallowed day, we take time from our busy schedules to stop and reflect on the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform who so unselfishly gave their lives to defend our nation’s freedoms.

General George S. Patton, perhaps one of our greatest U.S. military commanders, spoke of celebrating the lives of those lost in battle when he said: “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived.” And poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow eloquently paid tribute to these heroes when he wrote: “They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast, and their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.”

They came from small towns, farms, and cities across America. Each one different and unique. Each one united under one banner. Each one proudly wearing our country’s uniform. Each one ready and willing to pay the ultimate price. Each one a hero. From Bunker Hill and Gettysburg to Berlin and Baghdad. From Inchon and Pearl Harbor to Saigon and San Juan Hill. The battles have faded into history, but their gallant sacrifice will live on forever.

We here at Central Valley Nissan, your preferred Nissan dealership in Modesto, California, hope that you will take a moment during your Memorial Day Weekend activities to pay tribute to the more than one million soldiers who have paid the ultimate price in service to our nation.

Top 5 New Nissans for College Grads

Graduation is just around the corner. So now is a great time to start thinking about sending your graduating son or daughter down the highway of life in a brand-new 2015 Nissan from Central Valley Nissan, your number-one Nissan dealership in Modesto, Calif., serving the nearby communities of Tracy, Stockton, and Lodi.

Nissans are an attractive choice for new college or high school graduates because they’re safe, reliable, affordable, and fuel-efficient. But they’re also stylish and fun to drive, having that all-important “cool factor” your graduate will appreciate.

New Nissan College Grad Program

To make your Nissan purchase even more affordable, take advantage of the exclusive Nissan College Grad Program with special pricing discounts available up to two years after graduation. The program does not require a co-signer and provides a simple, “no-hassle” buying experience which is especially beneficial to first-time buyers. To qualify, you must have graduated from an accredited U.S. two or four-year university, college, nursing, or graduate school. You must show present employment or future employment beginning within 90 days of financing your Nissan.  You’ll receive pre-negotiated pricing plus all applicable incentives, along with one of the best available financing rates. And there’s even a 90-day deferred payment option.

Here’s a rundown on some of the best Nissans to consider for your graduating senior:


2015 Nissan Versa Sedan

With a starting MSRP of just under $12,000, the well-equipped Nissan Versa still reigns as offering the lowest MSRP of any new vehicle in America. But just because it’s a bargain doesn’t mean that you’re getting a model devoid of features. In fact, the Versa comes packed with a host of features you’d find on cars costing thousands more. It has fresh, contemporary styling, plus best-in-class interior legroom, so your grad’s pals can stretch out comfortably in the back seat. And with a class-leading 14.9 cu. ft. of trunk space, there’s plenty of room for your grad’s stuff. Motivating the 2015 Nissan Versa is a snappy 109-hp four-cylinder engine that gets an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway. Even in standard “S” trim, the Versa comes equipped with air conditioning and Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity. In terms of safety, the Versa comes with six air bags Vehicle Dynamic Control and Traction Control, and Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist.


2015 Nissan Versa Note Hatchback

You might call the 2015 Nissan Versa Note “the little hatchback that could.” Sharing the same 109 hp engine as the Versa sedan, the Note is as spirited to drive as it is appealing to look at. The Note’s modern aerodynamic exterior won’t get lost in a crowd with large vertical tail lights, wedge-shaped projector-beam headlights, and a unique active grille shutter that opens to increase air circulation at low speeds and closes at higher speeds to help reduce drag. The available Around View® Monitor features two cameras that give you both a rear-facing and bird’s-eye-view of the vehicle on the available touchscreen, dash-mounted color display. Of course, grad’s will love the Note’s “Versa”-tility with an exclusive “Divide-N-Hide” adjustable floor for safely securing their gear out of sight, 60/40, flat-folding rear seats, and a total interior volume of 112.9 cu. ft. At a little more than $14,000 MSRP, it’s still got plenty of “bang for the buck.”

2015-Nissan-Sentra-Central-Valley-Nissan-Modesto-CA2015 Nissan Sentra

The Sentra comes to the party with lots to offer. Your grad can step up to a sporty 1.8 liter four-cylinder engine that delivers quick acceleration combined with excellent fuel efficiency of up to 40 mpg when equipped with the Xtronic® CVT transmission. Its handsomely styled and low-slung exterior with its large projector-beam headlights with LED accents and large LED tail lights is a real head-turner from any angle. The 2015 Sentra is loaded with premium features you’d expect to find on more upscale vehicles. Attractive and lightweight 17-inch aluminum wheels add a sophisticated flair. The Sentra is remarkably roomy for what’s considered a “compact” sedan with 37.4 inches of rear legroom and 15.1 cu. ft. of cargo space. It also can be ordered with such available upscale appointments as a Bose audio system, leather seats, dual climate control, steering wheel-mounted controls, a large touchscreen display with optional NissanConnectsm with navigation and mobile apps, and intuitive controls. Your grad will also love the convenience of the Nissan Intelligent Key® that opens or closes the doors with a tap of the door handle. There’s even an available hands-free text messaging assistant that actually reads your texts aloud so your grad can stay connected to family and friends while driving safely.


2015 Nissan Juke

There’s nothing ordinary about the high-impact styling of the futuristic Nissan Juke crossover. With a myriad of vibrant exterior and interior trim options to choose from, your grad can customize their Juke so that it reflects their unique personality, both inside and out. The race-inspired available turbocharged 1.6 liter engine hits its 188 hp “sweet spot” at 5,600 rpm for plenty of passing power. Your grad will safely rule the road with torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive, vehicle-speed-sensitive electric power steering, and rear multi-link suspension. Plus, the Juke can be optioned with an extensive assortment of high-tech gadgetry and cutting-edge safety features. These include NissanConnect® with Mobile Apps, available Around View® monitor with Moving Object Detection, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Automatic On-Off Headlights, Nissan’s Advanced Air Bag System, Anti-Lock Brakes with Electronic Brake Force Distribution, and Brake Assist; plus Front Active Head Restraints and Supplemental Side-Impact Air Bags.


2015 Nissan Leaf

For an electrifying alternative to today’s modern transportation choices, the remarkable 2015 goes to the head of the class. This amazing, forward-thinking all-electric four-door features a powerful 80 kW AC synchronous electric motor that delivers a spirited 107 hp with an astonishing 126 city/101 highway MPGe. With an effective cruising range of 84 miles and available home charging station, and a growing number of ChargePoint® stations which can be located and accessed by a handy mobile app, there’s plenty of ways to keep it rolling silently along. The futuristic cockpit is amazingly quiet and loaded with all the high-tech bells and whistles you’d expect from a car that’s so ahead of its time. So if short in-city driving is in your grad’s future, then then advanced, zero-emission Nissan Leaf may be the perfect choice.

The Right Nissan for Your Grad, At the Right Price.

Of course, these are just a few examples of the many outstanding 2015 Nissan vehicles available at Central Valley Nissan. With so many to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect vehicle for your Class of 2015 graduate at a price that won’t break the bank.
