Here is what an aggressive lease should look like:
MSRP for First Edition, including destination: $60,400
Acquisition fee (bank fee) 695
Total cost $61,095
36 months, 7,500 miles per year residual 60%, Money Factor .9%
Applied towards the cap cost cost reduction: Federal tax credit, $7,500 X-Plan,$933.
Monthly payment, without taxes, (some states waive the tax for EV's and tax rates vary state by state)
Monthly payment is $489.50
I am presently leasing a 2018 Ford Edge Sport with a MSRP of just over $47,000. My monthly payment, 36 months, 10,000 miles per year, with no money down, is $407 and that includes NY State sales tax.
Prior to this, I was leasing a 2015 Ford Edge Sport, MSRP $46,000 and the monthly payments, including NY State Sales tax, were $457.
Based on those payments, the MachE, after the Federal tax credit of $7,500, which brings the cost to just $52,000, and fewer miles per year, monthly payments should be less than $500 per month plus tax.
If you use the financial calculator, the monthly payments under the Ford Option Plan, using the Federal Tax credit of $7,500 as a down payment, are about $800 a month, plus tax, which in my opinion is utterly ridiculous and a complete non- starter.
Hope this helps.
