It’s a great deal, but it’s worth noting that it’s actually $250/mo. when you do zero drive off. Which you should.

Anytime you can commute to work in an electric car at great price is win in my book.

However, I wouldnít be too keen on taking one on a long road trip, especially out West.

For sure - the i3 would not be a good road trip car.

Totally agree. But you can then subtract the 2500 in post sale rebates (many states now offer EV credits even on leased cars of approx 2500). Id be able to do that. I could also subtract the 500 CCA rebate

yeah- you'd think by now they'd have adjusted the MSRP to be closer to reality. Makes for great leases though - which may be the point.
