Ford Offering Extreme Discounts on Focus EV

January 31, 2013

If you've been considering buying an electric car, but feel they're not worth the extra cost, you may want to reconsider.  Sales of the Focus EV (Electric Vehicle) have not been as high as Ford had hoped, so the company is offering a number of extreme discounts and special lease deals to help get sales moving.

According to an article on Automotive News, Ford is offering discounts of up to $10,750 on three-year leases and has lowered the base price by $2,000 for buyers who pay cash. Additionally, Ford is ofering  1.9 percent financing on the Focus EV for buyers who borrow from Ford Motor Credit.  In addition, some buyers may  be eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit.

The all-electric Focus EV - which went on sale in April 2012 with a base price of $39,995 plus a $795 destination charge - has reportedly only sold 685 units, short of the 1,627 units produced.

If you're looking to purchase the Ford Focus EV, I recommend using the free CarWoo Deal Finder to make sure you are getting the biggest discounts possible.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
