Green Car Deals: January 2015

If you’re interested in a fuel-efficient new car, you might think you’ll have to pay a premium just to get great gas mileage. But that isn’t necessarily true. Our list of green car deals and incentives reveals that several of today’s top fuel-efficient models are available this month with especially reasonable pricing.

Honda Accord Hybrid

The Honda Accord Hybrid is a popular new midsize sedan that combines many of the Accord’s excellent traits, including reliability, comfort and ample interior room, with economy car-like fuel efficiency of 50 miles per gallon in the city and 45 mpg on the highway. In January, Honda is offering two incentives on the 2014 Accord Hybrid for shoppers interested in leasing their next green car. The best monthly payment is $269 per month, which is offered for 36 months after $2,499 down at lease signing. Drivers who would rather put nothing down can also get a good deal, as Honda is offering a 36-month term with zero-down and payments from $320 per month.

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

Although the gas-powered Hyundai Sonata midsize sedan has been redesigned for 2015, the fuel-efficient Sonata Hybrid is standing pat for another year, and that means Hyundai is offering several strong incentives as it prepares for an all-new 2016 model. The best incentive available this month for the 2015 Sonata Hybrid is a low-interest deal for qualified shoppers: 0 percent for up to 60 months, or 1.9 percent for 72 months. For drivers looking to lease, Hyundai is offering payments from $239 per month for 36 months after $3,199 down at lease signing. Even cash buyers can take advantage of a good deal in January, as Hyundai is offering an impressive $2,000 back for drivers looking to pay in full.

The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is a boldly styled 4-door sedan that combines luxury car amenities with compact-car fuel economy of up to 41 mpg city/39 mpg hwy. For shoppers interested in a good deal on their next fuel-efficient luxury car, Lincoln has two offers available. The best incentive is for qualified shoppers looking to finance: Lincoln is touting a 72-month term with 0 percent interest. For drivers looking to pay in full, Lincoln is offering up to $1,000 in owner-loyalty or competitive-conquest cash back to shoppers who own a current Ford or Lincoln model or a competitor’s car.

Nissan’s fully electric Leaf hatchback offers more than 70 miles of range and comfortable seating for five passengers and their cargo.

Shoppers looking to pay in full can also get a good deal: Through the end of the month, Nissan is offering up to $3,500 cash back on all 2015 Leaf models, a deal that can be combined with federal and state tax credits for huge savings.

  1. Come on Doug! That Sonata picture is misleading. You should get one of the Sonata Hybrid and not this one of the redesigned 2015.
