The all-electric Audi will get a low finance rate and a little loyalty cash.
While it hasn't quite arrived in key markets yet, the Audi E-Tron is already getting some attention for buyers looking for a little discount.
The E-Tron will get a loyalty cash offer to lure in the Audi customers it's hoping haven't defected to Jaguar or Tesla while waiting for the first all-electrics to arrive at their brand, according to CarsDirect. It's the same $750 incentive that Audi has on its other 2019 vehicles, but giving it to the E-Tron is notable considering it's brand new and not exactly a mainstream model yet.
There's also a 1.99 percent finance offer from Audi's finance arm, which is remarkably low and offered for a lengthy 66 months, CarsDirect said. Factor in the full $7,500 federal tax credit the E-Tron is still eligible for (unlike any Tesla) and the Audi's $75,795 base price gets a little easier to stomach.
The Jaguar I-Pace, has been on sale since the end of 2018 and its sales of around a couple hundred vehicles per month hardly sound like that of a brand new SUV that keeps getting accolades. Last month, Jaguar added a lease offer of $899 per month for 36 months and kept a 0 percent finance offer for up to 60 months. CarsDirect also reported last week dealers are knocking $5,000 off of the sticker price before incentives.
