Ford tries discounts to sell Focus EV

Ford is trying to get more shoppers interested in purchasing its Focus EV with significant discounts for cash purchases and on leases. Ford has announced a $2000 discount off the base price of the vehicle for people who are paying cash.

Buyers who are interested in leasing the Focus EV will be able to get up to $10,750 off of a three year lease. That amount does include the $7500 federal tax credit. Ford only sold 685 Focus EVs in 2012 after building 1627.

The vehicles have been the poorest performing cars as far as sales go in the electric vehicle market. To get this lease, buyers have to purchase by April 1. The 36-month lease gives drivers 10,500 miles per year and costs $285 per month.

Named after the son of Henry Ford, Edsel was determined to become one of the top luxury car manufacturers. It was the late 50s, a time filled with long tail fins and out of the box design, which the Edsel Citation certainly had under control. The Citation’s unique nose split audiences into two very different gro ...

Ford Posts Strong Second Quarter Earnings
Filed under: Car Buying, Budget, Hatchback, Ford, UK We may regard Ford as an American automaker, but ask a Brit and they may tell you otherwise.
