Hi everyone,

first time poster here. I’m looking to buy/lease a new car and the Hyundai Kona EV has definitely stood out. Went to a dealership yesterday, and for the 2022 Kona EV SEL they had there, with a few accessories that came with it (lo jack, shield guard on the doors, etc), warranty, and some other stuff it came out to about $540/month for a 3 year lease with $2k down. I was expecting/hoping for closer to $400/450 a month. I know the market is nuts right now especially for these cars. Do y’all think the $540/month is a good deal? Thanks for your help!!

i dunno, i worked at a car dealership for a couple of years, the finance/leasing/fleet guys told me almost every day, dont ever lease a car. my freinds sister leased a car and had to pay around 3k when returning it at the end. just make sure to read every stipulation very carefully

Post your question to Leasehackr.com and check out the forum. I can tell you already what the answer will be. It is not a good deal. I leased an SEL a year ago for $200/month and nothing down.

It is all relative to what else you can get now in this market. I leased a 2021 Kona EV Ultimate last September for 39 months at $383/month with $0 down after all types of incentives, rebates, etc. Due to lease incentives at the time, leasing was better than buying if you wanted to ultimately buy/own the car in the end.

Exactly. Now isn’t a good time to lease or finance anything, especially vehicles. Rising interest rates, and inventory constraints mean there aren’t many deals to be found.

People laughed at me a year ago when I got an EV and gas was (only) $2/gallon😁
