Fiat 500e $199 Lease Deal Problems

There is no doubt that Fiat 500e is a great little car and when the news was delivered that the lease price will be set to only $ 199 a month there were many interested drivers. Such commercial was very interesting to many and soon it was pretty clear that all of those vehicles will be leased.

That this is not so simple we were able to hear from few sources and here is what one of the drivers and potential customers had to say about this car and the lease plan:

I was very excited that my 500e arrived at my dealer but that quickly turned to disappointment and anger when the dealer placed the lease papers in front of me. Months ago I put a deposit on the base model (orange on white with no sunroof or sport package) and asked for the $199 lease but the dealer said it was $263.50! Adding tax to the $199 lease gets it to $216.16 but this was $47.34 higher.

I took issue with this and the dealer used their usual misleading monthly payment language it s only $47 more to which I replied but that s an outrageous 22 percent increase – that s the same as jacking the price of the car from $33,000 to $40,000!

If you look at the fine print on the official Fiat deal, it does say that the $199 price requires dealer contribution. Trent continued, Of course they refused to make that contribution saying that the car is sold out and I have a waiting list, so you want it or not? I m pretty sure that no dealers are contributing so no one can get the $199 price so it is a lie and false advertising.

Of course, we have no way of knowing if this story is true, but things seem to check out. Trent let other 500e owners and fans know about the situation and it appears there are plenty of others with similar tales. According to Lease Guide, A dealer contribution means that the dealer give[s] up some (or most) of their potential profit to help promote sales and move cars off the sales lot. Ariel Gavilan, Fiat North America s head of communications, stated that he does not know how much the dealer contribution to get the 500e lease down to $199 a month would be, just that Fiat sets the MSRP and then dealers are free to set their own price. In the case of the 500e, Gavilan admitted that demand is incredible.

There is a chance that this imbalance will be fixed in the future. While not committing to anything, Gavilan did confirm to the public that increasing supply is something we might eventually consider, and that he wouldn t be surprised if it s going on now.
