Ford Doubling Cash Incentives For 2014 C-Max Hybrid & C-Max Energi Models

Ford is apparently very interested in moving the last remaining stock of its 2014 C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi models, based on recent moves made by the company.

The most notable of those moves is the doubling of its incentives for the 2014 Ford C-Max models.



When taken together with other discounts, what this means is prices have been slashed by as much as  in some cases — hence the comments about Ford being very interested in unloading the stock.

To use the 2014 C-Max Hybrid as an example, the company has put out a new $1,000 bonus cash incentive — bringing the total cash incentives for that model to $3,500, or ~18% of the sticker price.

As noted by CarsDirect, the C-Max Energi has had even better incentives added — doubling the cash bonus to $4,000 (up from $2,000), which is apparently on top of $1,750 in other cash incentives. This brings total incentives for the 2014 C-Max Energi SEL to $5,750 — a roughly 17.7% cut  from the sticker price.

Also worth noting is that the 2014 C-Max Energi (of course) also qualifies for a $4,007 federal income-tax credit. Also, those in California have access to the $1,500 clean-vehicle purchase rebate.

These programs are set to end at the end of March — so those interested would probably be advised to take a look sooner rather than later, if considering purchasing a 2014 C-Max Hybrid or C-Max Energi.

This news follows just a week or so after it was revealed that Ford was reducing the sticker price of the 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid and the Energi by $900. Not a huge drop in price, but notable considering that it was in response to low gas prices. Low gas prices won’t last forever of course (or probably even a year), but it’s still good to see a company being proactive about the public appeal of hybrids and EVs.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
