Current Discounts on Selected EVs

6/12/17 - Finished updating dealer discounts for June! Latest updates:
  • Advertised Bolt discounts continue to improve... a number of dealers are offering over $4000 off. 
  • Added a Chevy dealer in Illinois to the list... check back throughout the month for additions from other states!

5/31/17 - Table has been updated one last time for May! Recent changes:
  • Added Bolt and Volt deals from Martin Chevy, Dublin Chevy, and Herb Connolly Chevy (MA). Thanks to insideEVs readers tom991, hpver, and SparkEV!
  • Added discounts from Chevy dealers in Michigan (one has the best Bolt discount on this list) and Washington state. Added BMW 330e deal in Washington.
  • Revisited Bolt offers from various dealers... Interestingly, best published Bolt discounts I could find is not in California.They are in WA and VA!
  • Added a few dealers in Texas! Most notable is Friendly Chevrolet, with great deals on Volt Premiers - over $5000 off before factory incentives! Also, Nissan on Lewisville has a 2016 LEAF SL at over $10K off; call them for details on how that deal breaks down into dealer discount and factory incentives.
  • Added a couple of dealers in Wisconsin that advertise discounts on Volts and C-Max Energis.
  • Sun Motor Cars BMW in PA has a number of i3 BEVs advertised at about $3000 off. 
  • Tracy Chevrolet is advertising $3000 off on a Bolt EV LT and ~$3700 off on Volt LTs. Thanks for the tip, cooltoad!
5/10/17 - Dealer discounts have been updated for May. Some highlights:
  • Overall, Bolt discounts have improved slightly over last month. 
  • Discounts on an e-Golf have improved, apparently due to a bigger factory incentive. 
  • Discounts seem to have improved this month on the 2017 LEAF and 2017 Focus Electric.
  • Please be wary of any discounts you see that seem too good to be true... for example, Quirk Nissan and King VW both advertise discounts of over $15K. In both cases the dealer is including government incentives in the total, and at times their website did not indicate that they were doing this. Carr Nissan has a LEAF SV discounted by $10K, and they provide no breakdown into factory incentives, dealer discount, and government incentives, so that discount in my opinion is suspect. Please contact the dealer for clarification if you decide to pursue these deals.
  • Time permitting, I will be searching for more dealers with EV discounts and try to to a mid-month update. Will focus my search on dealers outside of CA, then on CA dealers that don't have lease offers. Please post below if you find any published deals on EVs... Thanks!

This is still a work in progress... please bear with me, especially if you're using a smartphone. For now, please view this page in landscape orientation.

I've been thinking about putting a list like this together for a couple of reasons. First, some folks prefer to purchase rather than lease their EVs, so an advertised discount should serve as a better negotiating tool  than an advertised lease offer. Second, some dealers advertise discounts rather than lease offers, especially when it comes to higher trim levels and discontinued models. Those that want to lease a discounted unit can then plug numbers into the LeaseHackr calculator to get a pretty good estimate on the lease terms.

Similar to the EV Lease Offers post, the purpose of this post is to indicate where offers were found online at a particular moment in time. Please verify a discount is still advertised on the dealer's website prior to discussing with the dealer, and refer to the data on the dealer's website while negotiating with them.

Hi Vin, thanks for all your work on this site, and for putting together the new discounts page. I had called Capitol Chevrolet about the Spark EV last weekend, and they told me that contractually, it would be sold as "used" and therefore not eligible for state or federal incentives or tax rebates.

vin said...

You are welcome, MKT! Thanks for the help, I removed Capitol Chevy's Spark EV discount from the tables. Kinda makes me wonder about Premier Chevy's huge discount on a 2014 Volt.

Farley said...

King VW is NOT discounting the sale price of the 2016 eGolf by over $13,000!!!

They are including the $7,500 tax credit in a lease, but showing it as a sale. Here's the email I received:

"The last 2016 eGolf SEL Premium i got MSRP $36,415.00 is on sale to lease for $23,277.00 including all rebates($7,500.00 federal tax credit ) VW

owner's loyalty ,partner,recent college grad.

Price does not include freight $820.00,processing $300.00,tax abnad tags good till march 31st,2017"

Really professional and honest, right? :|

They said for the actual sale price, not lease, you need to add the $7,500 back in.

vin said...

Thanks Farley!!! I'll update the second table right now; the first table will be updated by Saturday. Thanks again for the help!!!

MKT said...

No more new 2016 Soul EV+ at Capitol Kia - I got the last one :) Thank you for making this page and alerting me to the discount!

MKT said...

Also, Frontier Ford is offering up to $10,250 off on the 2016 Focus Electric. Here's the link.

vin said...

You are welcome, MKT! Congrats on your Soul! And thanks for the help!!! I now have Frontier Ford on my radar. I'll get their deal on the Links table shortly.

FYI I just dropped by Quirk Nissan in MA and the $12,015 Leaf discount is not real.

I both called them on the phone and email'ed them they positively confirmed it is correct and available however when I went to the showroom they said it was a website error and a training problem.

Based on that experience would go as far as to suggest that any price from Quirk Nissan or Chevy in Massachusetts is suspect.

Steve P said...

Hans,
On Quirk's webpage it shows an MSRP for the Leaf as $33,505. They are using the following discounts: $1,000 military/college grad, Quirk discount of $2,515 and they are also including the federal credit of $7,500 and the MA state rebate of $2,500.

IMO they should not include the state and federal assistance in their advertised price.

Hans Hammermill said...

Steve,

FWIW, they did update their website this week to delineate that they include the $7,500 and the MA state rebate of $2,500 in their price, however the prices they list still are not correct; for example this page says the Quirk Price on a 2017 Leaf S is $16,590:

http://www.quirknissan.com/new-nissan-specials/2017-nissan-leaf-s-133/

However the math on the discounts does not work:

MSRP $34,345
MILITARY/ COLLEGE GRAD $1,000
FED. CREDIT/ STATE REBATE $10,000
QUIRK DISCOUNT $2,855

That brings the price to $20490 -- not $16,590.

I gave them a call and they "could not explain it over the phone and I would need to come down".

The bottom line is that the prices Quirk lists in their websites is just plain wrong. I suggest removing them from the list.

PS: I really appreciate this website!

Steve P said...

They are now including $4,000 NMAC cash. Well, at least they are for today. :-)

vin said...

Hans and Steve- thanks for reporting your findings. I was thinking of excluding their discount info when I first found it because the info was vague - just one huge number with no breakdown into dealer discount, factory incentive, and government incentives. Based on your feedback I will remove them from the list until they provide more details along with the offer. I will include them and others on a separate list of "half-assed deals" so folks can at least be aware of a potential money saving deal and I can keep them on my radar in case they get their act together sometime in the future.

Hans Hammermill said...

You rock vin and thank you for the feedback Steve P!

vin said...

Hey Hans - I ended up keeping Quirk Nissan on the list since they are still itemizing their deal, as you noted. They still have that deceiving $17K total on the page; I'm hoping that our readers here will be able to ignore that and see the $6500 discount, which seems to be on par with discounts offered by other dealers on this list. I'll put a note at the top of this page to warn folks. Thanks!!!!

Mike R. said...

I live in Northern California, near Sacramento, and the Ford website shows the lease offer just announced on the Ford Focus electric, $2646 down and $149 per month available in my zip code. Offer is good through June.

Mike

vin said...

Thanks Mike! I re-checked and the FFE offer is now a good deal less ($30/mo), but I didn't see the numbers you saw. Checked a random SF zip code (94016) and it matches the So Cal deal (i.e. 90007). Just for grins I checked the Energi models, looks like the C-Max Energi deal is slightly improved. I've updated the Factory Lease Offer info on the other post. Thanks again!!!!
