I'm honestly starting to think about buying another one... Is that crazy?

I dunno... the Model S has that fast charging network... and is one hell of a sexy car!


I'm kind of in a similar thought. The Tesla is nice looking, have nice toys, is fast, and offers the free charging, longer range. That said you only get the charging on the higher spec cars, not even an option on the $50-60k base model.

The way Toyota is own the RAV4 EV pricing some people who were thinking of a lower spec Tesla Model S might be willing to "compromise" (haha) and get a RAV4 EV for MUCH less.

A new RAV4 EV at a net cost of down close to $30k (after deducting nearly $20k for the tax credit, CA rebate, Toyoya cashback and dealer discount incentives) is one helleva fantastic deal too! At such a low price you could buy TWO Rav4 EVs for less than a base model Tesla S-40, and in many ways have a better all-around car, especially for a family lifestyle.

How are you going to beat 0.0% ? Even if you want to pay cash, get the loan, then pay it off in full whenever you want.

The rate schedule I saw listed 0.0% rate for 36, 48, and 60 month loans.
These are simple interest rates... meaning interest is calculated on outstanding balance, not pre-calculated.
The net of this is that I don't see any downside whatsoever on the 60 month loan. If you want to pay it off faster, just increase your payments.
And, given that the interest rate is 0.0%, calculating what that would be is easy enough :-)

As far as leasing however, I see there is a different thread discussing it. I'm really not sure what the residual value will be after 3 or 5 years, the state of the battery and cost to replace or recondition. The idea of leasing is pretty appealing considering all that as long as the price is right.

I think it's 46.5% residual in 36 months.

While I'm happy that Toyota is offering so much cash as an incentive (on top of various government tax incentives and carpool lane access), they shouldn't have to. There are hundreds of people willing to pay $36,740 for a fully-loaded 2013 N!ssan Leaf SL. If Toyota found a successful way to market the $49,800 - $7,000 ($42,800) Rav4 EV to those people, N!ssan would be losing a lot of sales. Get butts in cars for test drives, and the Rav4 EV sells itself.

BTW, Toyota's website now brands the car as the 2013 Rav4 EV.

I think that's part of the problem. Nissan dropped the prices and now has a base spec Model S that's even $10k less (roughly) over the SL Model. And Nissan is supposed to be making them in the US which is supposed to cost them less. Toyota is in the middle between a Nissan Leaf and a base Spec Tesla Model S. Throw in Ford, Mitsubishi, and several other pure EV's and it makes things tough for Toyota. Add to that they are in only a few states and there isn't too much press and it's a hard time. There may be hundreds of people interested but they need to sell thousands. I see comments throw around from Toyota that they aren't pushing this too much either.

:(
