As we roll through the second month of 2017, it's once again time to take a look at the best deals on green cars.

This month's batch of deals spans a wide array of models, from one of the best-selling plug-in hybrids to a pair of subcompact sedans.

It also includes one of the newest green cars to hit the U.S. market, as well as one held over from the previous model year.

DON'T MISS: Why aren't there more hybrid crossover utilities and SUVs?

As always, head over to CarsDirect for more information.

2017 Kia Niro

2017 Kia Niro


The 2017 Kia Niro is one of the newest hybrids on the market, but it is already subject to initial incentives.

Kia portrays its first dedicated hybrid model as a crossover, but the Niro lacks all-wheel drive and has car-like styling.

The best available Niro lease rate is $219 for 39 months, with $1,999 due at signing and an allowance of 12,000 miles per year.

That offer lasts through the end of this month.

Kia is also offering 0.9-percent APR financing for 60 months, and a $500 discount specially for Uber drivers under the "Uber Driver Partner Program."

If you want a more luxurious vehicle, consider February's second highlighted hybrid deal.

Of the many Lexus hybrids, the 2017 CT 200h is one of the few that offers genuinely good fuel economy, achieving an EPA-rated 42 mpg combined.

Through the end of the month, the aging small hatchback is available to lease at $299 for 36 months, with a cap of 10,000 miles per year.

The amount due at signing is now $1,099—down $500 from last month, according to CarsDirect.

2017 Chevrolet Volt

Plug-in hybrids

The 2017 Chevrolet Volt gets a lower lease rate in certain electric-car friendly parts of the country.

In California, Oregon, and the Northeast, the Volt is available to lease at $270 a month for 39 months.

That's with $500 due at signing and 15,000 miles per year.

In comparison, the nationwide Volt lease rate is $299 a month for 39 months, with $1,929 due at signing.

Chevy is also offering a $500 "conquest bonus" for shoppers switching over from another brand.

This effectively erases the down payment in states with the lower lease rate, and lowers it to $1,429 elsewhere.

2016 Ford Focus Electric

2016 Ford Focus Electric

Electric cars

Ford's low-key approach to marketing its Focus Electric means the hatchback rarely gets special offers or incentives.

But with an updated 2017 Focus Electric on the way, Ford is discounting the 2016 model, perhaps in an attempt to clear inventory.

The 2016 Focus Electric is now available to lease at $119 for 36 months, with $669 due at signing and an allowance of 10,500 miles per year.

Shoppers have plenty of time to contemplate this offer, as it remains in effect until April 3.

Yet while the 2016 model may represent a better deal than the 2017—which likely won't get the same discounts—buyers must sacrifice range.

2016 Kia Soul EV

Because while the updated 2017 Focus Electric is rated by the EPA at 115 miles of range, the 2016 model has a 76-mile range.

That puts the 2016 Focus Electric near the bottom among battery-electric cars.

Meanwhile, incentives for the 2016 Kia Soul EV carry over from last month.

The limited-market Kia electric car is still available to lease at $169 a month for 39 months, with an allowance of 12,000 miles per year.

A $1,000 bonus applied to the down payment reduces that to $999.

Note that the Soul EV is only available in the following states: California, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, and Washington.

2017 Toyota Yaris iA

2017 Toyota Yaris iA

Fuel-efficient gasoline cars

The 2017 Toyota Yaris iA was previously sold as the Scion iA, but has now outlived Toyota's defunct "youth brand" and remains an underrated favorite of this site's editors.

We found its combination of a reasonably-pleasant driving experience and 35 mpg EPA combined rating quite appealing.

In February, Toyota is offering $1,500 cash back on the subcompact sedan—up $500 from last month.

Alternatively, Toyota continues to offer 0-percent APR financing for 72 months, as well as a lease at $149 per month for 36 months, with $1,999 due at signing.

Another fuel-efficient subcompact sedan is the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4, which boasts an EPA-rated 37 mpg combined.

Through the end of this month, Mitsubishi is offering a $2,000 rebate on what is already one of its least-expensive models.
