We’ve uncovered the best EV lease deals, hybrid car discounts and rebates on plug-in hybrids for green car shoppers in June. Apart from often being great to lease, environmentally-conscious vehicles can offer additional incentives like federal tax credits and both state & local plug-in rebates.

Although rates on gas-guzzling trucks and SUVs have gone up, deals on plug-ins have remained relatively stable ahead of the upcoming 4th of July holiday. Since EV and plug-in discounts generally favor leases, we've also listed every lease at the bottom of this page.

For additional insights, read our analysis of what coronavirus means for car buyers as well as our comprehensive of all manufacturers offering incentives in the wake of COVID-19.

Best Electric Car Deals

  • Best Deal: Lease from $249 for 36 months
  • Due at Signing: $2,500
  • Mileage: 10,000 miles/yr
  • MSRP: $34,000
  • Fuel Economy: 133 MPGe
  • Range: 170 miles

What's Hot: The Ioniq Electric continues to feature the cheapest lease on an EV, with an effective cost that comes in $50/month less than the Chevy Bolt LT. With a $2,000 Clean Vehicle Rebate here in California, you can reduce your costs considerably.

Worth Knowing: The deal in question is available in California. Prices elsewhere may be more expensive. The featured offer reflects $8,000 in factory lease cash, an amount that already includes a $7,500 federal tax credit. Customize Offer »

Best Plug-in Hybrid Deals

Toyota Prius Prime
  • Best Deal: Lease from $289 for 36 months
  • Due at Signing: $1,999
  • Mileage: 12,000 miles/year
  • MSRP: $28,964
  • Fuel Economy: 133 MPGe
  • Range: 25 mi (EV), 640 mi (EV + Gas)

What's Hot: The Prius Prime may not be the cheapest plug-in but it's a surprisingly good deal compared to the standard Prius. With an effective cost of $345/month, it actually has the same price as a Prius Eco here in Southern California.

Worth Knowing: In addition to featuring a lease rate equivalent to 0% APR, the Prime can be cheaper if you qualify for a $1,000 Clean Vehicle Rebate. Those coming from another Toyota lease may be eligible for a $1,000 loyalty discount when leasing. Customize Offer »

Best Hybrid Deals

  • Best Deal: 0% APR for 60 months
  • MSRP: From $29,470
  • Fuel Economy: Up to 40 mpg overall

What's Hot: For some reason, RAV4 Hybrids actually feature better rates than the regular RAV4 in many parts of the country. That's great news that can save you money over the course of a 5-year loan when you consider that the gas RAV4 is listed at 1.9% APR for 60 months.

On a $30,000 SUV, the difference in cost between 1.9% APR and 0% translates to nearly $1,500 in savings. For some buyers, this may justify upgrading to the hybrid given that the difference in MSRP is about $1,000 compared to an all-wheel-drive RAV4.

Worth Knowing: The deal in question also doesn't apply to the RAV4 Prime, a new plug-in hybrid that's eligible for some compelling PHEV incentives. Offers may vary by region and the examples here are for Southern California. Customize Offer »
