SANTA CRUZ, Calif., (Jan. 15, 2013) – Zero Motorcycles, the global leader
in the electric motorcycle industry, has launched an all-new promotional
program to support their highly popular 2012 model line. “Cash for Carbon” is
designed as a consumer trade-in bonus, with $2,500 in additional trade value on
top of whatever amount the dealer offers the consumer available towards the
purchase price of a new 2012 Zero Motorcycle. This incentive is presented in
addition to the recently announced 10 percent federal tax credit available as
part of the AmericanTaxpayer Relief Act, offering up to an additional $2,500 in incentives for
new Zero Motorcycle consumers.
to the ‘cash for clunkers’ government promotion in 2009, Zero aims to entice
traditional internal combustion engine motorcycle owners to make the switch to
electric,” said Scot Harden, Vice President of Global Marketing for Zero
Motorcycles. “In offering a $2,500 trade in bonus for new customers, we expect
this promotion to be a great sales tool for our nationwide dealer network.”
addition to the $2,500 trade bonus and federal tax credits, Zero customers can
also take advantage of Zero Motorcycles financing. Current financing options
offer no down payment and 0 percent interest for 12 months, plus 4.99 percent
financing options, both with approved credit. “Cash for Carbon” will run from
Jan. 1, 2013, through March 31, 2013. Consumers must print a “Cash for Carbon”
voucher for presentation at their local dealership to receive $2,500 bonus.
