Tesla announces a significant expansion of the Supercharger network. Supercharging enables Tesla Model S drivers to travel long distances, for free, indefinitely.
In addition to the expansion of the Supercharger network itself, Tesla has improved the technology behind the Superchargers to significantly speed up the amount of time it takes to charge Model S, in some cases cutting charging time in half.
Tesla Motors announced today that, in partnership with Wells Fargo and US Bank, it has created a revolutionary automotive financing product that provides the best elements of ownership and leasing to Model S customers.
Most people throughout the world prefer to own their belongings, rather than rent what is essentially someone else’s property via a lease. However, leases do provide some key benefits, particularly a low initial payment, tax deductions, lower risk on resale value and the convenience of returning a car without the hassle of reselling it personally.
Working with some of the largest and most respected banks in the country, Tesla has been able to create a new kind of financing product that combines the surety and comfort of ownership with all the advantages of a traditional lease. Like the Model S, this product was created from the ground up to provide maximum benefit to consumers, rather than simply duplicating other financing programs that tend to favor companies at the expense of the individual.
