The limited time rebate of $3,500 for Cherokee Nation citizens and employees
plus the up to $7,500 in federal tax incentives could equal up to $11,000 in
total savings for tribal citizens and employees purchasing a Nissan LEAF
before the special rebate offer expires April 1.
The announcement was made Friday at a special electric vehicle ride and
drive event the Cherokee Nation Office of the Secretary of Natural Resources
hosted at the W.W. Keeler Tribal Complex in Tahlequah.
“Protecting and preserving our environment and natural resources is a deeply
rooted Cherokee value, and our commitment to upholding that value is as
strong today as it was with our ancestors,” said Cherokee Nation Secretary
of Natural Resources Sara Hill. “In recent years, the Cherokee Nation and
its entities have made concentrated efforts to reduce our carbon emission
while also advocating on the protection and preservation of our natural
resources. We are thankful that Nissan USA recognizes the tribe’s commitment
and is giving our tribal citizens and employees the opportunity to join the
effort and tradition of being the good stewards of the environment that our

The rebate offer is only available to Cherokee Nation citizens and employees
living in one of the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California,
Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas,

Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma,
Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah,
Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
The partnership between the Cherokee Nation and Nissan USA is another
example of the tribe’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint. In 2017, the
tribe celebrated the completion of the first tribal solar canopy car
charging station built by a tribe in Oklahoma. The canopy, located at the
W.W. Keeler Tribal Complex in Tahlequah, is capable of charging up to eight
electric vehicles and provides about 58,000 kilowatt hours of electricity to
the tribal complex each year. The Cherokee Nation now has three electric
vehicles in the tribe’s fleet.
Cherokee Nation’s business arm, Cherokee Nation Businesses, brought the
first super charging stations to northeast Oklahoma through a deal with
Tesla Motors. The electric fueling stations located at Hard Rock Hotel &
Casino Tulsa can charge a vehicle in about 15 minutes.
