I reserved a Premier Ariya back in March. I am # 33,447 on the reservation list. Based on what I've read, it looks like the reservation list started at # 10,000. I was told the vehicles would be ready in late Fall.

My question to the team is how likely is it that the $7,500 federal tax credit is still available at the time we receive our Ariya's? Will this factor into your decision to purchase the vehicle?

Thanks,

I'm in the first 1000 reservation holders, so will very likely qualify for the credit. That said, I would buy it regardless. I view the tax credit as a pleasant bonus rather than a requirement.

You should be fine. It’s starts to phases out two quarters (6 months) after reaching 200k. At the end of 2021 they had sold 165. Assuming 15k in Leafs for 2022, that would leave 20k Ariyas before hitting the limit. Even if they hit the 200k before you get yours, you still would have about 6 months before the full credit expires.

The baseline number for the reservation started at 10101. The orders reservation system also increments this baseline number by 3 for every reservation. You are 7,782 reservation # in the queue and most likely get your Ariya in 2023.

I recently read an article published on July 3rd by Inside EVs regarding this matter. This article revealed that as of June 30, 2022 Nissan was still 26,668 EV units away from hitting the dreaded 200k threshold . As many are aware, there is literally zero Leaf inventory available nationwide that aren’t actual pre-orders. Combined with low inventory numbers, only a handful of pre-order Leaf models are in the queue after Nissan decided recently to halt all Leaf pre-orders until further notice.
So unless something changes it is safe to assume that a very low number of Leaf units will be sold in quaters 3 and 4 of 2022. Then the question remains, how many Ariyas will actually be built and sold fall/winter of 2022? >Considering the recent curtailment of the Leaf, is Nissan now planning to pace their EV production and sales to magically hit the 200k EV threshold on July 1, 2023?
If the above scenario becomes a reality, Nissan will be able to offer both the Leaf and Ariya model sales with the full federal tax credit incentive for the remaining 2023 calendar year.

reserved aiya venture plus long range, my reservation in first 1000 list
what is my ev tax credit situation
Hard to speculate at this moment until the final version of this bill either passes or doesn’t. The last version of this bill reported a few days ago indicated that even if you took possession of your Ariya in 2022, if that bill was signed into law before you had finalized a sales order you could be out of luck. In effect, the grandfathered clause of the current version of this bill only recognized EV production assembled in AmerIca. So the Nissan Leaf would still qualify for a tax credit under that version of the bill but not the Ariya because it is currently assembled in Japan.

Personally I believe Nissan is monitoring this legislation very closely and will become extremely motivated as needed to create a suitable financial path for all USA Ariya reservation holders to maintain their ability to claim the federal tax credit.
