Tesla is trying to stay in the spotlight while they continue working on the Model 3 and also enticing people into one of their vehicles. Their solution to both problems is introducing a new two-year lease option.
Electrek reports that Tesla sent out an email announcing the new offer which states the lease deal starts at $593 per month and only is only available for those placing orders til September 12th.
"A 2-year lease option is one of our most popular requests. We listened and are launching a limited time test of a 2-year lease on Model S and Model X. Starting at only $593/month, our new 2-year lease program was designed just for you to drive electric today, and is available on all Model S and X orders placed by September 12th," Tesla said in their email.
The two-year timeframe is perfect for someone who is on the waiting list for a Model 3, but who wants to drive a Tesla model right now. There is a catch for those hoping to get the $593 per month deal. Electrek ran the numbers and found that you would need to put a $6,000 down payment on the base 60 kWh Model S.
