I know that if I lease a Fusion Energi I cannot claim the tax credit since I do not own the vehicle. I would expect that I would still benefit from the tax credit by applying it towards the down payment on the lease (ok, they should do that). When I look at the offers from Ford they all state that they are purchase OR lease. To me this implies that for a lease I should get the current incentives plus the tax credit. The sales rep that I am dealing with is trying to tell me that the rebate on the lease is the tax credit but since the offers are for a lease OR a purchase I am not buying it. But I am not sure if that tax credit may be buried somewhere else. Since I cannot make heads or tails reading the fine print I was wondering if anybody who recently leased got a better explanation.
