Official: Tesla lowers Model S lease price, adds 3-month ‘happiness guarantee’ thumbnail

Filed under: Car Buying , Sedan , Tesla , Electric , Luxury , Ownership Tesla Motors is offering an enticing deal for potential buyers who might not be entirely sure whether they actually want to own a Model S for the long term. A deal through US Bank not only lowers the cost to lease the EV but also turns leasing the brand’s electric sedan into a long-term rental. Curious buyers who lease a Model S are now able to return it in the first three months with no penalties and with the remaining payments waived, something Tesla is calling the “happiness guarantee.” CEO Elon Musk announced the deal on the company’s blog , and he said the payments were also as much as 25 percent lower because US Bank “has a much lower cost of capital than us.” Currently, a Tesla lease starts at around $800 and can be up to $1,300, with down payments around $6,500.
