    Just received a marketing email from Tesla. Big bold headline: lease a aTesla from $698 per month. With our exchange rate we're talking about $1000 a month. For that price I'd be driving my new Tesla. But the cheapest I can slice and dice financing here is $1600 per month which means at $400 per week is out of the price range. The Tesla offered leases are of course even more than that.

    Bummer.

    Agree. What is the point of sending US marketing material to Australians without qualifying which breed of dollar they are referring to. Further bad communications from the company.

    Yep. They know we're in OZ, there's an Aussie website, it's not rocket science.
