Here in Sydney, if I walk up to a dealer to buy a car, they can finance me for interest less then 3%!!!
And the Model S? Nope. upfront cost of about $75000 (here in Australia) after a $5000 deposit.
All I can do is stare and drool over the Model S, watching youtube clips of the car and dream, because that upfront cost is a killer. I want a Model S. Dont get me wrong, im willing to pay the full price for one, but to raise that amount of money for me to buy one? it would take me 4 years!
If Elon is listening, we need a leasing program not just in America, but in other countries as well.
If i get a loan from a bank, the interest will be so high, I will end up paying more then $20000 more for the car over a 5 year loan! the cheapest i could find to finance is 10% interest.
Get rid of that upfront cost, and ill put down a $5000 deposit right this very second. PLEASE! I really want a Model S. Ill get down on my knees and beg if I have to. And I really dont want to wait for the BlueStar to come out.
