If you're considering one of many hybrid models but think that there are no deals to be had on green vehicles, now would be the time to think again—and potentially head out shopping in the near future.

Data from the pricing-intelligence firm TrueCar shows that a lot of hybrid models are selling for well under sticker price. Surprisingly, for instance, dealers are typically lopping ten percent off the 2010 Mercedes-Benz ML450 Hybrid, while the 2010 Nissan Altima Hybrid is getting, on average, more than five grand taken off its $27,500 sticker.

Based on thousands of transactions in January and February of 2010, TrueCar has calculated its most deeply discounted 2010 hybrid models. Please note that these are on a national average and significant regional variations exist in hybrid vehicle demand, then page through for the list, with some comments based on the firsthand experiences of editors.

  1. Thanks for this analysis. The price markup on hybrids is too high in many cases. Unnecessary features on the most popular hybrid models can cost as much as the hybrid drive trains themselves.
