Ford Gets Serious About Selling The Focus Electric

Even if you have no desire to ever buy a Nissan LEAF, but plan on purchasing another electric vehicle at some point, you may owe the Japanese company a thank-you note.

Since massively reducing the price of the 2013 LEAF down to $28,800 and offering a $199/lease (details here), one-by-one all the other plug-in makers have been sweetening the deals on their EVs.

Today, it was Ford’s turn to offer the customer a little extra something to get them to buy their Focus Electric.

A 36 month lease on the Focus EV, nets you $10,750 in total deductions (including the $7,500 Federal credit), bringing the car’s cost down to a very low $249, with $2,138 due at signing.

If owning your car is more to your liking, Ford will give you $2,000 off the MSRP (down to $37,995) along with the always nice, 0% financing option.

As a point of reference, some other deals currently nationally available on the market today:

  • 2012 Leaf  SV – $219 a month with $1,999 due at signing
  • 2013 Chevrolet Volt – $299 a month with $1,529 due at signing.
  • 2013 Toyota Prius Plug-In 0% financing or $349/mth lease with $3,499 due at signing
  • 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In  $259 a month with $2,399 due at signing
  • 2013 Honda Accord PHEV $429 a month with $2,499 total due at signing

As always, the dealer could (and usually will) sell for less.

You forgot the i MiEV for $69 a month. That is just mad! One can get a MiEV for each family member and still pay less than their cable bill.

Yeah, but then you’d have to drive a MiEV…

Very nice! It’s still a tough sell against the Leaf, but it’s moving in the right direction.

Very low sales of FFE is good proof against the argument that Leaf is not selling because of hwo it looks.

For most buyers, price always counts first, then features, and lastly, looks. But looks still count– so the Nismo body kit for the Leaf might help perk up volume sales. Down with Carp Mouth, I say!

The two biggest strikes against the FFEV: very poor rear cargo space, and no L3 DC Fast Charge Option; be it SAE or CHAdeMO…
