Tesla Leasing Roadster for the Cost of a Mortgage

If you've been yearning to own a Tesla Roadster, but can't afford the six-figure price tag, the car company will start leasing their popular electric sports car for a minimum of $1,658 a month, meaning you probably still can't afford it.

The three-year, 30,000-mile contract requires $12,453 at signing, which includes a $9,900 down payment and obtain viagra without prescription a $895 acquisition fee.  Then at the end of the lease you'll need to pay a $350 disposition fee and $.25 for every mile you go over the 30,000 mark.  Plus you'll owe for any wear and tear on the vehicle.

So, what could possibly be the perks of this fee-laden lease agreement?  During the lease, you have full access to the best choice overnight cialis the Tesla Ranger service squad that will make house or office calls to perform inspections, firmware upgrades and maintenance, and you have the chance to drive the sexiest EV on the planet before they halt production in 2011.

Could those reasons make a car lease that costs as much as a mortgage worth it?  Well, that's up to you.

It is a very impressive car but as you put it 'pricey' Still the services that come with the car may actually make that price worth it.

I like your blog overall, but think you put far too much focus on cars and gizmos. I realise you're called "EcoGeek", and that there's a focus on technology (which is great), but I think you should focus more on tech that is likely to make more of a difference.
My opinion is that we simply don't have the technology yet to facilitate every adult owning a car in a sustainable way -- even if they're electric!

Tesla has other cars

Hey why does everyone get hung up on the two-seater impractical roadster? That's like going after a Porsche, they're expensive for the sake of being expensive.

Go look at the Tesla S, it's a 7 seater family sedan, yes sedan, not a mini-van. Has two trunks TWO, more storage capacity than most SUVs and is a sexy sexy beast.
written by Angelo, March 01, 2010
Leo is correct on the Tesla S - take a look at it. Also, work out a spreadsheet over the life of a typical 6 year loan on a normal vehicle. Add in the gas, oil changes, belts, etc. that are normal maintenance and I'll be you'll find the cost almost comparable - depending on your initial cost and estimate for gas mileage and $/gal.

I love the Tesla. I watched the Top Gear episode and tracked down every episode of Automobile and Car and Driver, and it's really an amazing feat.

This blog is great - good job!

The price tag is crazy.... And it is as much as the mortgage on a modest house, but you have to admit that car is AMAZING!
Ooh I love the Tesla

I love the Tesla but 12k at signing is crazy. I guess I'll have to come back when I become a millionaire.

Wish I could also afford to have it. But we can surely say that this not for everyone. The price is too high. Anyway the product is just awesome.

I am curious to see what the depreciation of a Tesla is after 3 years. May not be such a bad deal in the end… especially if those batteries don’t survive well after 3 years.

On Saturday, August 20, 2011 I'll be at Sarasota Yacht Club (Florida) to see the Tesla S prototype. The show starts from 10am and ends at 6pm. Someone wants to come?

The Roadster is a premium electric sports car that can travel up to 245 miles per charge, accelerate from 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds, and has zero emissions. Simply great!
