I’m looking for a bit of input on a lease quote I just received on a 2019 Kia Niro EV. With all the amazing deals on the Bolt, I’ve lost my barometer on the EV deals. Unfortunately, I do not qualify for the Costco rebate for the Bolt so I won’t be able to replicate those deals plus I’m looking for a slightly bigger EV.
The quite I received on a 2019 Niro EV EX premium MSRP a little over 46k is 350 a month with 1150 up front (first payment, title and acquisition fee). Not a bad first offer.
The selling price is 43500 (about a 6% dealer discount). Since it is a 2019, it has a ton of lease cash on the hood. I’m wondering if it’s worth pushing for a 10% dealer discount on the car and, even then, if it sounds like a good deal to you. The alternative is looking into the Bolt even without the Costco rebate.
Thanks I completely agree! I’m trying to gauge what would be an appropriate dealer discount on the vehicle. I’d like to push for a 10-12% discount. With the information from the edmunds forum, the monthly should be easy to calculate.
For what it’s worth, if you’re still considering Bolt - I’m a new Bolt owner and while I don’t LOVE the car … one thing that is surprisingly awesome is the space. It looks tiny, but the cargo space is really really good with seats down - it’s actually bigger than the Niro EV (57 vs 53 ft3). Same with legroom / headroom space up front and on back seat. Feels more spacious than it looks at first glance.
The Premier has pretty much every safety feature available today. Blind spot warning, ACC, LKA, etc … front and back cameras.
Here’s the deal I got in Maine. You can adjust the numbers to figure out what it would be in your state without Costco:
Thank you for sharing! The Costco rebate makes a huge difference. Unfortunately without it, I’m probably looking at 300 a month if I try to replicate your dealer discount. Who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky .
