When I read the announcement today about the new, lower-priced Model S, I wondered why Tesla 3 reservation holders aren't offered a deal on this. Considering we will all just be waiting around for the next 18 months for our Tesla 3, I think Tesla should offer a discounted lease on a Model S that would expire the day you receive delivery of your Model 3.
Drivers would get excited about driving Tesla before 2018, Tesla would make a bunch more money on leases, and we're not stuck with fixed-term leases that we don't need when we actually buy the Model 3. It's a win-win for everyone. Discount the lease payments by 15% for current reservation holders and you will have brand loyalty for life.
