Those living in California who are interested in going electric but don’t have much available money may be interested to learn that some dealerships are offering 2016 Fiat 500e leases for as low as $69 a month.
That’s, of course, $69 a month with a down payment of $4000 — but still, not a bad deal. Those not wanting to pony up a down payment have other options as well — including one for $169 a month, with $0 down.
The deals mentioned above are via the Santa Monica Fiat dealership’s website, and are good until January 4, 2016 — though, I’ve spotted similar deals elsewhere as well, so it might be worth looking around before committing.
Torque News provides more info:
As you can see Fiat offers three lease options. According to the first deal you will pay $169 per month. Since the downpayment is $2,500 dollars and it comes with $2,500 rebate, there is zero down. According to the second leas deal you are asked to pay $149 per month. It comes with $2,500 rebate. Downpayment is $3,500, which means you pay $1,000 dollars at signing.
Finally, the third lease option for the 2016 Fiat 500e is $69 dollars per month. According to the last option, you are offered a $2,500 rebate but the down payment is $6,500 dollars. With the rebate you will pay $4,000 dollars at signing and own the car for $69 dollars per month for 36 months.
It comes with 10,000 miles per year and has $0.25 excess mile charge. The MSRP for the 2016 Fiat 500e is $32,795 and dealer installed add-ons are optional. This lease deal expires on 1/04/2016.
Anyone here considering going with such a lease?
