Why are almost all electric cars being leased and not sold?
First of all, everyone knows that the newer and better electric cars with greater range are coming out in a year, maybe two or three years. Those newer and better electric cars will have much longer range, better features and more desirability. As newer electric cars are starting to be developed and sold with over 200 miles per charge, plus advanced AI features, any older electric cars will be less desirable than the new ones, and thus their price may drop by comparison. Most cutting edge smart electric car owners also want the smartest, best and latest electric car with the most range, and the best features, just like the want the latest greatest smart cellphone.
Second, the cost to lease and fuel an electric car is often equal to just the cost of gasoline for a fossil fueled car per month. Now add on the maintenance and repairs for a used carbon fuel car, and the bottom line financial equation swings over to leasing a brand new electric car. Some lease deals include things such as free rental cars for longer trips, or a couple years free charge ups, via a network of chargers that dealers tie into with an access card.
Fossil fuel cars are now relegated to the same ancient and dead dust bin of history as the dinosaurs. Dirty fossil fuel cars are TERMINALLY OBSOLETE. They are so dead, but they don’t realize it yet and their owners are also living as if nothing has changed, and don’t realize all fossil fuel cars are obsolete.
