Click on the link below to read the article. For all those people who thought they couldn't afford one. An electric car just became alot more affordable.

I did a little number crunching a discovered it would take 12 and half years for Ford to recover the cost of the vehicle. This is an offer that seems to good to be true.

Wow! I'd so go for that--if they'd let me out of my lease! A little googling around here: It looks like those deals are by the dealer and not Ford. Well at least they don't show up on Ford's website when you search for Incentives for the FFE.

According to the article the two dealerships in the Sacramento area were offering these leases. If you leased the car the Ford or the dealership gets the $7500 tax credit. The state of California is offering $2500 on top of federial tax credit. Plus Ford may be offering $2000 customer cash on 2012 FFE. So $40,000 - $12,000 = $28,000 cost. The 36 month lease requires $2800 down dayment. ($199 x 36) + 2800 = $9964. I can't see how these dealships can make money on these leases. A number of Ford dealerships are still sitting on 2012 FFE models in their inventory. I wounder if they would be willing to do an out of state lease?

I just closed a deal on a 2012 36 month lease $245, $0 down, so its actually better than the quoted sacramento deal. The problem is finding the 2012 is getting harder as there is not much stock left in the bay area region of California. See fremontford.com and look under the new car specials to see the details. The dealer found a White Platinum locally and I'll take it home tomorrow once its brought to the dealership. Looking forward to getting it home.

Good catch, we paid $259 a month for 36 months, no money down just two weeks ago. My wife is absolutely loving here 2012 Frosted Glass colored FFE (who invented that paint name?)

This does sound like a really sweet deal. You are leasing $40,000 vehicle for only $245 a month and no money down. Can this lease be extended? What is the purchase price once the lease has ended?

Just saw the place where I got my $259 lease has a couple 2012 FFEs for $239, just two weeks after my lease. Satisfied with mine but would lke to save a few bucks. Probably not in our area (southern California) but there may be some no money down $199 deals out there, grab them if you can, not that many 2012s left and the deals on 2013s are harder to come by.

Really interested to see what dealerships are offering anything close to this in Southern California, I sent a few PM's out, waiting on a response.

This is a great way to get people behind electric cars much faster. $200/month lease for the FFE is just as much as leasing a Civic!

I bet Ford is taking a bit of a hit, but sometimes you gotta do that to succeed.
