National Drive Electric Week: September 15-21, 2014

National Drive Electric Week is next month.  Its purpose is to increase awareness of plug-in vehicles, including the Ford C-Max Energi.  If you own a C-Max Energi or are considering buying a plug-in vehicle, go to their website and look for events in your area.  I’m planning on attending the festivities in Huntington Beach California, one of the largest events in the country.  As of today, there are 91 owners of plug-in vehicles that have registered to attend the event in Huntington Beach.  Of the 91, just four owners of the Ford C-Max Energi (myself included) have registered.  I recommend going to the website to see if there is an event near you.  If there isn’t, it’s possible to sponsor one.

C-Max Energi Incentives Continued Through January 2, 2014

2013 Ford C-Max Energi

Ford continues offering $3000 in bonus customer cash, 0% for 60 months and a $1000 competitive lease conquest for the C-Max Energi.  These can be used together.  If you don’t qualify for the competitive lease, you can get the $3000 bonus cash and the 0% for 60 months.  (Go to the linked web page, choose C-Max Energi, click on Retail Offers – for $3000 rebate and 0% offer – and click on Finance Programs – for competitive lease rebate.  I suggest you also verify with a dealer what incentives are available in your area.)  The IRS is also now stating that the tax credit is 4007 rather than $3751.  Many states offer tax credits or rebates, in some states like California, Colorado, and Georgia they can be substantial.  In California you’ll get a $1500 payment.  In addition, inventory is near it’s peak for the year but more C-Max Energi’s were sold last month than any other month this year.  To me, it appears to be a very good time to buy if you can take the Federal tax credit.

Why Buying a C-Max Energi Now Makes Sense

Hey, I wish I would have waited a month to buy the C-Max Energi.  Ford is now offering $3000 in bonus customer cash, 0% for 60 months and a $1000 competitive lease conquest in some areas for the C-Max Energi.  (Go to the linked web page, choose C-Max Energi, click on Finance Programs.  I suggest you also verify with a dealer what incentives are available in your area.)  The IRS is also now stating that the tax credit is 4007 rather than $3751.  Many states offer tax credits or rebates, in some states like California, Colorado, and Georgia they can be substantial.  In California you’ll get a $1500 payment.  In addition, take into consideration that inventory is high and dealers will discount substantially.  To me, it appears to be a very good time to buy if you can take the Federal tax credit.
