Tesla Announces Two-Year Lease For Model S and X

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.

That isn't a bad price at all, a base E300 4Matic lease is $5,263 down and $569 a month.  You can get into a Tesla for E-class money.    People want to compare the Model S to the S-class but it is like $1,200 a month to lease an S-class, I think $1,450 for an S-class coupe.

      When Tesla finally revealed the Model 3 a couple weeks, we learned about a number of items such as max range (220 or 310 if you opt for the larger battery), how fast they hit 60 mph, and what will come standard. What wasn't talked about was how big the battery was and power figures. Thanks to some EPA documents, we have some idea on both.
      InsideEVs found some preliminary documents dealing with the long-range Model 3 and figured out that has an 80.5-kilowatt-hour battery pack - the document says it is a 230 Ah battery pack with 350 V nominal voltage. We should note that CEO Elon Musk has said previously that the Model 3 could not take anything larger than a 75-kWh battery. But, InsideEVs says Musk could have been referring to useable, not the max capacity of the pack.
      We also have learned that the long-range Model 3 produces 258 horsepower. Sadly, no torque figure was given in the documents.

      Tesla CEO Elon Musk made a surprise announcement earlier this year with the upcoming Model Y crossover using a new platform and not the one used for the Model 3. Musk has changed his tune, however.
      “Upon the council of my executive team . . . who reeled me back from the cliffs of insanity—much appreciated—the Model Y will in fact be using substantial carryover from Model 3 in order to bring it to market faster,” said Musk during the second quarter earnings call yesterday.
      How much faster? Previously, Musk said the Model Y (if that is the final name) could arrive by 2019. But during this call, Musk did not give a date - possibly a wise idea.

      There really hasn't been much information about the Tesla Model 3 since CEO Elon Musk revealed the concept last March. Speculation and spy pictures revealing certain details were all we had. But last night at the automaker's Fremont, California production facility, Tesla finally spilled the beans on the Model 3 along with delivering the first 30 models.
      The Model 3 will begin at $35,000 and delivers a total range of 220 miles. Tesla doesn't list any power specs for the electric motor, but does mention it will hit 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. Six exterior colors will be available - aside from black, the other color choices add $1,000 to the bottom line. 18-inch wheels are standard while 19-inch wheels are a $1,500 option. The interior is a bit barren with the dash not featuring any visible vents and a large 15-inch screen that functions as the instrument cluster and control center for the Model 3.
      The list of standard equipment is quite spartan, to say the least.
      Textile Upholstery FM/Streaming Audio System WiFi and LTE Connectivity Dual USB Ports Dual-Zone Climate Control Front/Rear Parking Sensors and Backup Camera You also will not get a key for your Model 3. Instead, Tesla uses a smartphone app that uses Bluetooth to connect the vehicle to unlock/lock and start the vehicle. There will also be a credit-card sized near-field-communication (NFC) card that will do the same function.
      All Model 3s will come with the capability for Autopilot with eight cameras, forward radar, and 12 ultrasonic sensors around the vehicle. Capability is the key word as you'll need to spend $5,000 if you want active cruise control, lane keep assist, lane change assist, and self-parking. At least the system does provide collision avoidance and automatic braking.
      There is a fair amount of options available for the Tesla Model 3.
      Long Range Battery for $9,000: Brings forth a larger battery (Tesla didn't reveal the size) that increases the range to 310 miles. Acceleration drops to 5.1 seconds for the run to 60 mph.  Premium Package for $5,000: Adds leather upholstery, open pore wood trim, 12-way power seats with memory, power-adjustable steering wheel, premium audio system, center console, auto-dimming and power-folding side view mirrors, and rear USB ports. Full Self-Driving Capability for $3,000: Requires the Enhanced Autopilot package and will be available at a later date. Of course, the elephants in the room about the Model 3 is whether or not Tesla can meet their ambitious production goals and if they can avoid the numerous issues that have plagued both the Model S and X. Like everyone, we'll be watching with baited breath.
