“If you purchase and take possession of a qualifying electric vehicle after August 16, 2022 and before January 1, 2023, final assembly of the vehicle had to be completed in the United States, otherwise the same rules in effect prior to the enactment of the Inflation Reduction Act apply (including those involving the manufacturing caps on vehicles sold). ”
And then says “ may meet the final assembly requirement” so it’s not for certain the Q5e will qualify. I have a handful of builds that should be here by 1/1 so it seems they may qualify. But whether Audi passes it in for lessees is up to Audi. The site further states the IRS will provide further guidelines so it looks like they haven’t fully baked things.
I have a black/brown Q4 etron P+ at $60k MSRP. No markup, but have to wait 90 days (all dealers are supposed to have a stop sale for 90 days) and will have demo miles (prob 1-2k). No fed rebate unfortunately.
FYI, looks like the Q5 55’s are going to get the $7500 tax credit (not applicable to leases) since they’re made in Mexico. Your income must be below $150k single and $300k married to claim it. I actually have one coming in Nov that’s unspoken for. 3% off and the $7500 tax credit is effectively 16.7% off. Definitely a car to purchase, not lease.
2023 Q5 S Line 55 TFSI
CRJ - CREDIT - Integrated Toll Module
PFW - Black optic package
U07 - 20" 5-double-spoke star design wheels w/ runflat tires
WPS - Premium Plus package

Another Q5e popped up, it’s configurable unlike the Daytona/Brown I posted 2 days ago. Dec/Jan ETA. not sure when it’s going to be frozen to changes, but right now it’s Chronos grey on black P+ with Black Optic and Warm weather. Come and get it!
THIS IS BIG. $1500 LOYALTY FOR CURRENT AUDI LESSEES WITH LEASES IS MATURING SOON. Customers whose lease is scheduled to mature in September through December are eligible for $1,500 Loyalty Bonus on new, unreported unit leased through Audi Financial Services (AFS). RS and PHEV models not eligible.
Some interesting cars this month.
Q4 etrons - stop sale right now, but you can reserve one now for Dec. No discount tho.
Q5 with missing blindspot/crosstraffic - Just 1 left. Should be able to do 9-10% off
SQ5 with semiconductor shortage - Just 1 left. With rebate, should be around 9-10% off.
RS3 - I’m tempted to take this myself
Q7 45 - it’s been super long since we got one of these
Also, got 2 Q5e’s coming hopefully be end of the year. I’m sitting on them for now, but will need to release them back to the dealer soon. They’ve agreed to let me discount them to 4% now from 3%. If the cars land and you close before 1/1, I think there is no income cap for the $7500 tax credit. If you close 1/1 or after, then you’ll have the $150k/$300k single/married income cap.
Had a good convo with one of my newer dealers. They’ll do this on some of their inventory.
12% off 2022 Q5’s
11% off 2022 Q3 45’s and some SQ5’s
To be transparent, the above is the net effective discount after a $1500 Loyalty rebate (lease must be ending by Dec). The actual dealer discount is about 6-7% off plus rebates which is about 1-2% deeper than I have posted on my sheet.

Quick update on those Q5 55e’s I have. Several people wanted to be sure the car landed before Dec for the tax rebate and they definitely will. Still available. Will press my dealer for 4% off, but may end up 3%. Purchase only.
Daytona/brown P+ with Black Optic just landed at the port. ETA is prob 2-3 weeks now.
White Prestige with Black Optic and Sport + finished production. ETA is prob 1 mo out.
