$35.9K isn't bad, but 8.9% APR dealer financing is horrible compared to ZERO PERCENT for factory financing on a new RAV4 EV! Btw, back in November, it was 1.9%, but dropped to 0% in December and has not gone back up yet as far as I know. I wish I would of waited just a month longer before buying mine.

Petaluma is selling a new 2012 for 36k right now so definitely not a great deal as I assume you'll lose the 0% and federal incentives. Check out Craigslist and type in 2012 Rav4 EV if its not too late

I saw that a dealer in Santa Rosa was selling a used 2012 blizzard pear AND a used 2012 shoreline blue pearl for sale on craigslist for $36K each a couple weeks ago. They had under 100 mi each on them. I called and they confirmed that they were listed as used and therefore ineligible for either the Federal credit or CA rebate. Perhaps these were sold and then financing was denied to the buyers? I saw that explanation in another thread recently.

I don't think it would make sense to pay any more than 30k for a used one. I guess we'll find out if someone bites!

Agree. Some of those used prices are nuts, esp. given the lack of 0% financing on used models.

Seems to me it would only be attractive to someone outside CA that can't take the fed tax savings (due to not having the tax liability) and the 2500 CA rebate.

Yep, but at the same time, that's a pretty big chunk of change.

One would think that many in the market for a Rav4 EV if they didn't have enough tax liability for some reason (I'm actually in that boat now), one might have enough saved in an IRA that they could shift to a Roth IRA to "create" income and thus tax liability. I did some of that last year to take advantage of my low tax bracket, not to buy an EV.

I'm there too... The economy has been tough on the promotional calendar business. That along with unforeseen repairs has caused losses the last couple years. Things are turning around but for the present time not a lot of tax liability here. At least with the business I can carry the tax credit forward.
