, Senior Pricing Analyst - November 5, 2019

We’ve uncovered cheap leases and special discounts in November on electric cars, plug-in hybrids, hybrids and other fuel-efficient cars starting at $79/month. With Black Friday on the way, green car shoppers can expect to save as much as 20% off MSRP on select models.

As always, buyers should take into account additional benefits like state and local incentives. These may include the federal tax credit on plug-ins and programs like the California Clean Vehicle Rebate (CVRP) worth $2,500 on most EVs and $1,500 on plug-in hybrids.

Since offers on these types of vehicles often favor leases, we've also listed every green car lease at the bottom of this page.

Best Electric Car Deals This Month

  • Best Deal: Lease from $109 for 36 months
  • Due at Signing: $2,500
  • Mileage: 10,000 miles/year
  • MSRP: $31,245
  • Fuel Economy: 136 MPGe
  • Range: 124 miles

What's Hot: Last month's stellar lease on the Ioniq Electric continue unchanged. Not only is this the single cheapest lease on an EV, it's the most affordable deal on any car, period. It doesn't really get better than this.

Here in California, you can lease one from $109/month with $2,500 down. If you can offset the amount due at signing with the Clean Vehicle Rebate, you can effectively turn this into a $0 down lease. In New York, the same car leases for $79/month with $999 down.

Worth Knowing: The Ioniq EV is generally hard to find, so locating a car in your area may prove difficult. Get your custom quote »

  • Best Deal: Up to $8,747 off MSRP
  • MSRP: From $37,495
  • Fuel Economy: 119 MPGe
  • Range: 238 miles

What's Hot: Chevy is offering a 20% discount on all versions of the Bolt. While last month's promotion featured over $9,000 in potential savings, it involved incentives not every buyer would be eligible for. Now, all shoppers can enjoy the same great savings.

In the case of a Bolt Premier, the automaker says you can save as much as $8,747. Even better, the figure doesn't reflect a federal tax credit worth $1,875 or the $2,500 Clean Vehicle Rebate. Altogether, buyers may find themselves effectively saving over $13,000.

Worth Knowing: The 2020 Bolt gets a 21-mile boost in range but isn't eligible for the same promotion. Bolts have also triggered a mandatory phase-out process in terms of the federal tax credit. After March 31 of 2020, the credit will drop to $0. Get your custom quote »

  • Best Deal: 0% APR + $7,500 Credit
  • MSRP: From $45,445
  • Fuel Economy: 113 MPGe
  • Range: 153 miles

What's Hot: BMW i3 buyers here in California will find generous incentives for financing. All versions are now eligible for 0% APR for 60 months plus a $7,500 APR Credit. With the Clean Vehicle Rebate, there's now up to $10,000 in savings on the table in addition to interest-free financing.

Worth Knowing: Leases on the i3 remain flat in November. The base trim starts at $299 for 36 months with $4,224 at signing, an effective cost of $416. Get your custom quote »

  • MSRP: $29,545
  • Fuel Economy: 105 MPGe
  • Range: 26 mi (EV), 560 mi (EV + Gas)

  • Best Deal: Lease from $289 for 36 months
  • Due at Signing: $3,788
  • Mileage: 12,000 miles/year
  • MSRP: $37,145
  • Fuel Economy: 74 MPGe
  • Range: 22 mi (EV), 310 mi (EV + Gas)

What's Hot: The Outlander PHEV benefits from a price cut meant to blow out the last of the brand's 2019 inventory.

With an effective monthly cost of $394, this makes the vehicle just $36/month more expensive than an all-wheel-drive gas Outlander ($358) despite a $9,570 difference in MSRP. In some cases, you may find the model to be almost as inexpensive as a Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.

Worth Knowing: While this is a national offer, the lack of a large dealer network could make the Outlander PHEV hard to find. Get your custom quote »
