If I wasn't already 8 months into a 24 month lease on a Leaf, I'd be extremely tempted by this.

Having said that... it does come in at 4x the monthly cost, and I'm doing 20k+ per year.

Well, it's expensive! No surprise there.

Hopefully you can find a better deal somewhere Guesty :)

I could justify it if I was doing 20k miles per year but then the lease would just be higher !

Ironically when you look at 10k miles per annum and 220 working days per year you get 45 miles per day back at the leaf sweet spot!

Ouch ! I couldn't even justify owning a car for only 10,000 miles a year.... In fact if I didn't drive at work, I wouldn't own one. I manage to cycle 5000 miles a year just for fun ;)

For me it's just too expensive... But to be fair as much as I think it's a stunning car, I don't need a car that large.

I'm going to have to wait for the “Model E“ to be released. The price point I'm looking at is around the £30k mark - with a decent spec. I don't need to know anything more as you know it's going to be an awesome car :)

If Mr Musk can offer me this I will definitely sign on the dotted line.

Fortunately for me my work pay for it (opt out of company car) and I only actually do 4k per year for work! I have a colleague who did 260k miles in his Honda Cr-V before the Honda garage banned him from driving it, it was painful getting the company to purchase a CX-5 but a model s would be superb for his role.

5k miles per year is excellent going, you know you can claim 10p per mile back from the tax man for business cycling!

Sadly it's the business miles that means I do 25k in the car, it wouldn't be all that practical to do all of those on the bike, but I could be tempted ;)

260k on a Honda, why did they ban him from driving it? Surely that's barely run in.... ;)
