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.

2016 Ford Focus RS may yet be AWD, US sales likely

Aug 29 2014 6:02pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Performance, Hatchback, Ford, Rumormill When it comes to forbidden fruit, few vehicles are spoken of in as hushed a tone as the Ford Focus RS. The turbocharged, five-cylinder hot hatch could only be seen from afar by American customers as it tore up the roads of Europe. And while it's safe to say that Ford's Yankee fans are quite happy to now be on equal footing with drivers in the old country thanks to the Focus ST, we doubt there'd be much protestatio ...

Aug 29 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

SUVs and crossovers became increasingly popular beginning in the 1990s. Few automakers have yet to join this profitable segment, while most manufacturers that offer such vehicles are elbows deep into providing the sportiness and chutzpah more and more customers are demanding nowadays, while struggling to keep up with the stringent fuel-consumption and CO2-emission regulations. Granted, SUVs are now more than just plain, slow vehicles designed to ha ...
