The best time to buy or lease a new car typically falls at the end of the month, the end of the quarter, the end of the year, and on holidays. However, some folks are calling 2022 the year of electric cars, and competition is mounting. Will this mean better deals in 2022? Or, will some dealers continue taking advantage of price gouging?

While many brands haven't yet published their manufacturer-sponsored leasing and financing offers, we like to get this article out as soon as deals begin to publish. It's our hope that you can use this article to get a basic idea of manufacturer-sponsored offers, but keep in mind, you may be able to work out a better deal with your local dealer.

That said, we will tell you upfront that the deals thus far this month are proving pricier than December's offers, and we're well aware that many dealers don't actually stick to the manufacturer-sponsored pricing.

As electric cars increase in popularity, we may begin to see more traditional deals on them, but that doesn't mean local dealers will comply. In addition, if some automakers are struggling to sell EVs, the situation may encourage healthy incentives. However, high demand for some EVs may make incentives more scarce.

Still, several electric vehicles are available with either appealing lease deals, large discounts, or low financing rates. Some cars are available with a combination of these offers. Not all deals are equally appealing, but we've included them for comparison, and we'll be working to add more throughout the coming days.

GM isn't offering any deals on the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV, which comes as no surprise due to the recall and production stoppage. Nissan LEAF deals aren't as appealing on the 2022 model, but they're still enticing. Leasing a Tesla Model 3 or Tesla Model Y isn't cheap, but compared to the Jaguar I-Pace, it looks like a steal.

Check out Hyundai and Kia for some of the best EV deals available each month. We're talking about cheap leases, 0 APR, and hefty bonus cash. However, the South Korean automakers tend to be a few days behind other brands when it comes to publishing updated incentives.

Keep in mind, not all deals are available in all markets, and some have specific restrictions, so check with your local dealer for details on what's available in your area. The best deals typically apply to people with excellent credit ratings. Moreover, the best manufacturer-sponsored incentives are often reserved for returning lessees, as well as automaker employees, family, and friends.

There are many more incentives out there. You just have to take the time and do your homework. Some automakers are still offering deferred payments, even if it's not noted above or on their individual websites. Also, keep in mind that used EVs are available with reasonable deals as well, though the used market is also seeing price increases.
