Best Electric, Hybrid Lease Deals

February 14, 2019

This week, I compiled all advertised lease deals from manufacturer web sites to find out which electric vehicles, hybrids, and plug-in hybrids offer the best "bang for your buck" deals.

I calculated each lease deal with zero down payment so you can compare apples to apples. Note that payments don't include tax, title, and other fees and the deals may only be available in certain regions.

The "Bang for your Buck" column is calculated by dividing MSRP by monthly payment. Deals with "bang for bucks above" 100 are excellent and those below are ranked from great to terrible. Keep in mind, you may be able to negotiate even better deals - these are just the advertised terms, some brands such as Ford don't include any dealer discounts in the advertised lease deals, which means you could likely end up with lower monthly payments.

As always, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see the lowest lease prices you can get on any of these vehicles in your local area.

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.
