I remember a few years ago seeing dirt cheap lease deals on short range EVs. Lately it seems like you can't get much less than $300/month. Am I missing any good deals?
I guess demand was going to catch up with supply eventually.
yeah i looked at those when I heard about the free gas thing but at least last year the actual prevalence of hydrogen stations means your effective range is the same as a leaf (e.g. no filling stations in vegas)I leased the Toyota Mirai fuel cell a few months ago and am very happy.
Put down ~$4300
Just received $5000 Ca Rebate
~$370/mo lease payent
Free gas for up to $15,000
Three year lease.
Range is just under 300 miles, charges in five minutes and works for me as a regional nor cal commuter

Agree, definitely not for everyone. My wife has an Acura MDX if we need to take a road trip.
Will never forget and still cannot understand how, 2001 Passat GLX manual transmission, $130/mo zero down three year lease, sales manager was fired a month later I learned from service.
I used to lease a lot, the biggest rule is to negotiate sale price first always for car on lot, and also zero down if possible (imagine if you wreck the car later, that is money lost). Mobile app lease calculators help a lot, money factor and tax included. Then you can dealer hop and cross shop without comparing apples to oranges.
Agreed, leases only make sense if you get a great deal, which is rare these days.
In EU most leases are only commercial, I remember relatives visiting and telling me how stupid it was of me to get rid of a three year old car, a "new car", but over there they repair all cars and appliances until the plastics crumble
