POLL: Did you lease or buy your Tesla (or other EV)?

For those leasing: are you in your first, second or third lease? Drop your answer to this 2nd part in the comments :)



Here's what a few drivers had to share...

Well Model 3 owners can only buy right now unless they go with a third party lease. Either way — for the mileage I drive leasing doesn’t make sense. Also given the warranty on this car, I feel like buying in “safe”. When crunching the numbers purchase always makes more sense, so long as you can keep the car long enough (at least 5-6 years).

Unless for a business that is able to deduct the full amount, or leasing from a beaker who is offering a rate that is a throwaway (ie when the fiat 500e was around $50/month), it never makes financial sense to lease. The leasee will always be paying way more than buying.
