So there's a lot of good lease deals around by car manufacturers. I've been looking at leasing a bmw 335i for $399/month. But I'm tempted to wait around for summer 2013 when Tesla announces their leasing program for the Model S. I'm wondering if Tesla will be able to offer the Model S 40kWh for $599/month or less on a lease. Here's my reasoning. Here's a BMW for lease for $599/month (BMW X5 xDrive35i Sport Activity - Special Offers - BMW North America). I picked a random model because I'm looking more at the MSRP which is $58,595 for this model. It's close to the Model S. If Tesla can get the $7500 tax credit themselves (bringing down the price to $52.5k) and then we add 6k of options, thus bringing the Model S 40kWh to about $58.5 which is comparable to the BMW I linked to. The BMW is a 39 month lease at $599/month (plus tax) with a $3k down payment ($4324 due at signing). Can Tesla match this offer (especially because both cars are similarly priced)? If so, that would be awesome and could get a lot more people into the Model S. Any thoughts? Edit: According to my speculation, the 60kWH Model S could be leased for $689/month if you take a comparable BMW with a MSRP of $70,095 (BMW 550i xDrive Sedan - Special Offers - BMW North Americ). Again, total speculation and BMW might be subsidizing these leases to offload models that aren't in demand.
