When you lease you finish your payments and have absolutely nothing to show for them. Also, I ran into an issue in Virginia while I was in the Air Force. Virginia considered leased vehicles to be owned by the leasing company so military members from out of state didn't get the benefit of no property tax under Federal Laws.That's funny because the estimates for Tesla leases are about 20% of their new car sales. Tesla leases aren't great, hence the low number - not to mention, many benefits of leasing aren't applicable with Tesla. FWIW, a $60K Model 3 Performance leases for approximately $940/month, or you can traditionally finance for $1022/month with the same cash due at signing.
I won't get into the subject of leasing vs. financing, but I don't know why anyone wouldn't lease...even if you wanted to buy the car outright. All the risk is on the bank!
