Labor Day weekend is just around the corner, and while many people use the holiday for relaxation, automakers hope some will be lured into showrooms as well.

Carmakers are offering a host of Labor Day deals, including several on green cars.

In San Francisco, Toyota is offering a $500 bonus on the Prius "family" of models—including the original Liftback model, the Prius C subcompact, and the Prius V tall wagon.

The Prius Liftback is a redesigned fourth-generation model based on a new platform, while the Prius C and Prius V continue on older platforms.

In addition, Toyota is offering a $500 financing bonus on the Prius Liftback.

Shoppers can now get 0-percent APR financing for 72 months on that model, in addition to the combined $1,000 of the two bonuses. The offer expires September 6.

Toyota also has another hybrid deal that isn't limited to San Francisco.

It's offering 0-percent APR financing for 72 months on the 2017 Camry Hybrid mid-size sedan (as well as non-hybrid Camry models) "in a number of regions," according to CarsDirect.

Shoppers in California and the Gulf states also get a $500 finance bonus on the hybrid sedan.

While not specifically a Labor Day deal, Ford launched a $500 "conquest bonus" for buyers coming from competing brands August 17.

The bonus is available to all non-Ford owners, but can only be applied to the Escape crossover and Fusion mid-size sedan—whether in gasoline, Hybrid, or plug-in hybrid Energi form.

It can be added to most other current Ford offers, but expires August 31.

Finally, Infiniti recently increased lease discounts on the Q50 Hybrid luxury sedan, dropping the amount due at signing by $2,000.
