Should I lease or finance an EV

Hello fellow Clarkies! I’ve been a Clarkie going way way back to Joanie letting the dogs out and Fine Young Cannibals bumper music!

OK, I’m looking at buying a Ford Mach-E EV. The EV credit of $7500 has expired for purchasing one in 2024, but it’s still available for leases. Ford is saying they will pass this on to the lessor.

So my question is, is it better to lease for 2 or 3 years and take the $7500 off the price, and purchase for the residual value after? Or better to buy with 0% interest without the credit?

Thanks everyone,
