Ford Offering Extreme Discounts on Focus EV

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 RydeShopper to make sure you are getting the biggest discounts possible.






3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
