Make/Model: Roadster / Roadster Sport
Manufacturer: Tesla Motors
With flagging sales and several canceled orders on the Roadster - and production planned to wind down soon - Tesla has announced a new way to get an electric Roadster or Roadster Sport: leasing.
Most of the lease agreement parameters are similar to luxury car leases in a similar price range, with monthly lease cost being $1,1658 (plus sales/use taxes) and leases are not usually eligible for incentives from government until the lease is completed.
Lease terms are for 36 months based on the retail price of $111,005 for the Roadster. $12,453 is due at signing, which includes the first month's payment, but no other security deposit is required.
The lease also includes hassle-free service from the Tesla Rangers.
And so ...
This will likely entice some who don't have the means to secure credit to purchase to get a Tesla and the lease is offered nationally in the U.S.
