Cars With Best Fuel Economy – When the supply of some of the older 100-mile-old electric cars slows down, the car starts offering the best deals on the latest, more capable models.

Probably the best of all, the cars with the best deals of the month are much more and easier to find in many dealers than some of the latest deals we found.

Many of the latest specials are also available nationally, not just in California.

The Green Car report gets its monthly offer from our partner at CarsDirect, which oversees market bidding in real time. Visit their site for more details on these things.

Electric car

Nissan Leaf S, with a useful 151 mile electric range offers the best deals on electric cars in July.

Earnings can drive one home for $ 219 per month with $ 3,979 due at signing. The effective cost of $ 330 a month is more than $ 120 less than the Chevy Bolt EV. Rental incentives of $ 10,025 discount.

Buyers can also choose 0 percent financing for 72 months and still bring home $ 2,000 cash back.

Best of all, this deal is available nationally, although it only applies to Leaf S. The SV base gets a discount lower than $ 8,175.

The Fiat 500e has been around since 2013, and has only 84 miles in the battery. However, for many buyers it is enough, and a cool 500E is an attractive offer.

If you live in a state where 500 are sold (California or Oregon) you can buy one this month with 0 percent financing and still bring home $ 8,250 back.

Lease transactions are not as before, $ 229 per month with $ 2,149 due to signing. That raises the effective cost of $ 50 per month compared to other recent transactions at 500e.

Plug-in hybrid

As always, the Chevy Volt carries the best lease deal on a plug-in hybrid, priced at $ 230 per month for 36 months in sign up and drive programs available to residents of California and Oregon. Cost effective $ 50 less than last month’s rent on Volt.

The number of incentives to $ 6,900 off before the federal tax credits, which will start gradually out later this year. Buyers who trade from non-GM earn an extra $ 5,000.

Transactions in other parts of the country are less attractive. Lessees in the Northeast still earn $ 5,400 cash incentives. Everywhere, the number dropped to $ 2,900.


Ford Fusion Hybrid offers $ 3,000 cash back above 0 percent financing for the third month in a row.

The only catch is the buyer must finance through Ford Motor Credit; cash buyers are not eligible for rebates.

For comparison, Toyota only offers $ 500 cash back on the Prius hybrid.


The VW diesel scandal tarnished the reputation of all diesel engines. Buyers looking for great fuel economy, long distance, and good torque can still find it in some diesel engines that always meet emissions requirements.

The best diesel deal this month is at Chevy Equinox. Buyers can earn $ 6,000 from Equinox LT diesel, which accounts for 18 percent of stickers. This small air-conditioned SUV has a rating of 28 mpg city, 39 hwy, 32 combined.

During the July 4 holiday, 18 percent of the deal was applied to Equinox Premier. Chevrolet has extended the deal but applies it to the cheaper Equinox LT.

Car fuel-efficient gasoline

The Hyundai Elantra makes a re-appearance as the best deal on a fuel-efficient and affordable gasoline car.

Buyers can earn $ 1,000 cash back above 0 percent financing for 72 months. Without a financing deal, buyers can get $ 2,500 back, but CarsDirect analysis shows that a 0 percent financing deal saves more money than conventional financing.

The Eco Elantra is rated at 32 mpg city, 40 highway, and 35 mpg combined.
