The Cheapest Lease Deal in America

February 16, 2017

If you're just looking for the cheapest monthly payment on a lease, you don't mind driving an electric vehicle, AND you live in California, then I've got good news.

The leftover 2016 Ford Focus Electric is America's cheapest lease deal, coming in at only $119 per month with only a $699 down payment. This is after taking advantage of California's $2,500 rebate on electric vehicles.

Ford added close to $2,000 in incentives compared to last month on this vehicle, dropping the monthly payment by $50.

Other electric vehicles such as the 2016 Nissan Leaf and 2016 Kia Soul are also leasing for sub-$200 payments, but none come close to the Focus deal.

As always, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices your local dealers are willing to offer.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, 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.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
