Want a Tesla Roadster? Rent one for $1,658 per month!
If you don’t have $109,000 to spend but you want to be behind the wheels of an electric sports car which can run side by side a Porsche or a Ferrari when the light turns green, then why not lease a Tesla Roadster or its pumped up sibling the Roadster Sport?
A 2010 Tesla Roadster or the more aggressive Roadster Sport can be delivered to your garage under a 30,000 mile, 3-year contract, and a monthly fee starting at $1,658. The price might look unappealingly high but you need to remember that this Tesla will cost less to run on a daily basis compared to the other speed monsters.
Interested individuals need to prepare $12,453 upon signing of the contract. This is broken down to $9,900 for a down payment, the rent for the first month, and an acquisition fee of $895.
Looking at the numbers, a Tesla Roadster compared to a gasoline operated car can save you about $131 every month on fuel. This assumption is based on the average 833 miles covered by a regular driver every month according to an EPA test.
After the expiration of the contract, the consumer has an option to purchase the vehicle or just pay the fees and walk of the store. Your extra miles will cost you $0.25 per mile and you also need to cover a disposition fee of $350.
Part of the deal will be a mobile service to keep the car tuned through regular technical inspection and upgrades of the firmware. A Tesla technician will give the renter a visit to check on the car and do what is needed to keep it in tip top shape. Minimum charge for this technical service is about $100.
