I couldn't find this on Chrysler but found it at Edmunds.

Requirements and Restrictions:

Bonus cash for retail and lease sales to customers who currently own or lease a Plug-In Hybrid, Plug-In Electric, Electric, Fuel Cell Electric, or Hybrid Electric vehicle. No turn-in/trade-in required.
Customer $ Offer Start End
$1,000 Unknown 07/06/2018 07/31/2018

It looks like the requirements are a hybrid or electric vehicle. That's a small group. They should have just made it for everyone.

Bought a 18 Limited Hybrid 7/31 but dealer said they would post the sale on 8/1. They said rebate was going to be renewed for August and when I got the paperwork on 8/2 it had the $1k off!

vic, I've noticed the same even in soCal. I've also noticed inventory numbers dropping. My assumption is since 2018 production ended, no new 2018s are coming off the truck. Which means dealers can afford to keep prices luke warm until the 2019s arrive on their lots. Just my 2 cents.

No one knows for sure, but as the Build/Price tool on Chrysler's website still doesn't show them, I wouldn't expect before September. Wouldn't be surprised if it's not even until Oct/Nov.

There is a 2017 version available but I'm wondering if it's worth the extra 2.5K off since 2019 is on the horizon? Any issues that 2018/19 don't have?

major improvements over 17/18?
Major? Not really. But definitely features added that some people consider deal-breakers. I might still opt for a 2018, but I suspect the 2019 will be slightly more reliable and should have all needed software updates off the line, as opposed to a 2018 on the lot which may still be needing those updates.

. It's the hardware issues that I consider "major" Any software updates I don't mind dealing with. There's even a 2017, but looks like it sold :(

I was just told by a dealer that my 2014 Ford CMax Energi didn't qualify for the discount because is "had a gasoline engine", in addition to the electric motor and giant battery.

I don't know if the dealer is trying to screw me over, or if FCA has a different definition of "hybrid" than the government (which gave me the plugin hybrid tax credit when I purchased it).

Any ideas?

Your C-Max Energi is definitely a plug-in hybrid. Either the dealer is dumb or they don't want to give you the rebate. Is there another dealer in your area? If so, take your car to that dealer and see what they say.

I can't feature why a dealer wouldn't honor the conquest rebate on an Energi. They're either extremely stupid, or extremely shady and are, somehow, looking to keep the rebate for themselves. I mean, the rebate comes from FCA, not the dealer, so they have nothing to lose and everything to gain by honoring it.
