April 23, 2015

If you're considering celebrating Earth Day 2015 by purchasing a more eco-friendly car, then you're in luck as there's lots of great deals to be had on alternative fuel vehicles.

For instance, reports Chevrolet is lowering the price of the 2015 Spark EV by $1,650 and is even offering cash incentives on top of State rebates for a potential $3,500 additional savings.

The 2016 Cadillac ELR plug-in hybrid vehicle is dropping in price by $9,000, according to reports Toyota is offering a number of incentives on the Toyota Prius c in April, with potential savings as much as 9.8% off MSRP.

And US News & World Report's blog has an overview of special lease deals in April on both the 2015 Nissan Leaf and 2015 Ford Focus Electric, bringing monthly payments under $200.

And as always, make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise for the lowest price on any of these vehicles.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest 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.
