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.
