Ford Fusion Energi - $9,757 in instant incentives for lease

If you are looking for a Hybrid or a PHEV car then you may want to take a look at the current incentives Ford has on the Fusion Energi. I just bought one on Thursday. Incentives are based on your zipcode but spot checking all the major areas it was at least $9,757 plus whatever you can negotiate down with your local dealership. This is only for the lease though.

Fusion Energi is a plug in hybrid. Battery only lasts for about 20 miles but if you don't work too far that is perfect. After the battery runs out it switches it Hybrid mode on the gas engine so you keep going. Still decent gas mileage with them claiming over 40 miles combined city/highway just on gas.

The MSRP is not cheap on the car. Looking at least $31,400 for the SE model. With some hard negotiation you can be around $18,000 car value for the lease and right around $240 - $250 for the monthly lease for 3 years with very little down if any depending on your credit. It just depends on how much you are willing to go back and forth with the dealer. Keep in mind the dealer gets that $9,757 back to them. Don't let them act like they are making a deal on that for you. If I can't get 10% off the MSRP in "dealer discount" I consider my negotiation as a fail.

To see the rebate in your area, go to https://www.ford.com/cars/fusion/...ncentives/ and make sure your zipcode is correct. Click on the tab Pricing and Incentives and then scroll down to see you see the Fusion Energi trim you would like.

I myself went for the Titanium trim with plenty of options. Keep in mind you can't get the federal tax rebate since it is a lease but several states do have state or county incentives you can qualify for. Don't forgot in several states you can also use these in carpool lanes once registered. Also check with your local electric company, some also have rebates or discounted power plans.

It's not a deal for all but if you are debating about a mid-size sedan this is worth at least researching. Best thing I love about this car, it is on the regular fusion frame so it's not a boxed vehicle like that Prius, Bolt, or the leaf.

*Check Edmunds Price Promise for lease offers on this model. Make sure to update your zip code.

A news report said that Ford is ending production of all cars -- 4 doors / 2 doors -- except for the Mustang. Going forward, they will make more models of pick-ups and SUVs/crossovers.

Correct, just the Mustang and Focus Active is the only sedans they will make. That doesn't mean they will stop supporting these. The 2018 Ford Fusion Energi is covered by a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Hybrid powertrain components are covered for eight years or 100,000 miles. So you are covered if you decide to keep the car at the end of the lease. It is actually cheaper to do this lease and then pay it off at the end then to buy it outright.

Their profit margin is really low on the sedans due to the higher demand for the SUVs and trucks. I am not shocked they are going this way. I myself use to give a SUV but I wanted something better on gas mileage since my commute recently got much longer.

That is true, but that is most likely the reason for the discounts/incentives. You're not going to get 10k off an Accord hybrid right now. Fusion is getting long in the tooth but its a fine car. Interior quality and ride quality are both excellent.

I would hope they would know how to work on Ford's. Ive got 9 dealers within 45 mins of me so I don't think I'll have an issue finding someone to service if I need it

Incentive started back on 4/3 well before the announcement. I'm not saying they didn't know it was coming though.

It's fine as long as you plan to return the car after lease ends.
