Ford offers hefty discounts on Focus electric vehicles
Ford Motor Co. is offering hefty discounts of more than $10,000 for leases on its slow-selling Focus electric vehicle.
First it was the LEAF, then the Volt and now Ford is offering huge discounts for the Focus EV — nearly $11,000 off a three-year lease. The base price dropped $2,000 for cash sales, which lowers the price to about 38 grand. Plus if you finance the car through Ford Motor Credit you get an additional $2,000 cash discount. Ford only sold around 700 Focus EVs last year despite building over two times that amount.
Ford is offering customers up to $10,750 off for three-year leases, according to the Dearborn automaker's website. It also has dropped the base price of the Focus EV by $2,000 for cash sales.
In addition, Ford is offering a $2,000 cash discount on the Focus EV and 1.9 percent financing if the electric vehicle is purchased through Ford Motor Credit.
The automaker sold just 685 Focus EVs in 2012, but built 1,627 — making it one of the poorest performers among electric vehicles on the market.
