The lease works out best for me. I'm sure I can keep the mileage under 12K per year because my wife has a new Honda CRV that we can use for road trips. In three years I can either buy out the lease or walk away and get into another new EV. It will be interesting to see what improvements are made over the those three years. This one is working out so well that I'll never go back to an ICE vehicle for my daily commute.
