I bought a used 2014 Titanium Energi in October. I have about a 40 mile each way commute. Half the trip is reverse commute and the other half is in the commute lane, so I got the stickers.
The car only had the sunroof and navigation as the only options. I really liked the car, but wanted the adoptive cruise control, heated steering wheel, etc. So, with the $7k rebate from Ford coupled with about a $4k discount from the dealer, allowed the priced of a new 2017 Platinum Energi to drop from about $42k to $31k. I leased it for 3 years, $5k down and 18k miles per year due to my commute. Payments worked out to about $420/month.
Well, I went for it. The Platinum is a FANTASTIC car. Leather covered everything.
If anyone's on the fence I would highly suggest they go for it!!!!
