Ford says the Lincoln MKZ hybrid will be inexpensive

Posted on July 23, 2010 in Ford

We initially thought that this was a luxury product and would carry an astronomical price tag. But Ford recently announced that they will not be slapping a big price tag on this vehicle. The price of this car will be the same as the gasoline sibling. Lincoln MKZ hybrid is coming to the market this fall and the prices start at $35,180 including the delivery charges. This is the same price as the Lincoln MKZ gasoline model of 2011.

The price is also lesser than Lexus HS 250h 2010 which is the MKZ hybrid’s closest competitor. Lincoln provides the same room, comfort and luxury of a mid-sized sedan along with the environmental benefits. General Manager of Ford, John Felice says that Lincoln relates to luxury. The company wants to give its customers all the premium amenities for an affordable value. This vehicle has a fuel economy of 41 mpg and this is better than the Lexus HS 2010 by six mpg.

You won’t get the $7,500 federal tax credit for the car because it is not available. Once an automaker sells 60,000 hybrids, he doesn’t get the hybrid credit which is crafted for encouraging the production of fuel efficient vehicles. Once a company reaches that cap, the tax incentive is phased out for the next year till there is no credit available. Ford reached the cap last year.
