I think Rapidgate is really hurting sales now. Seems like a good deal. And the cars aren’t moving I guess. Rapidgate isn’t a huge deal to me as the car will be a daily winter commuter mostly.
The purchase deal
Sales price $31,408
Doc fees $500
Utility rebate $5000
That means without anything down the total price is $26,908 and they have offered 0% financing. Include the $7500 fed tax credit and the cost out of my pocket is $19,407. I think that’s pretty good!
The Lease deal
3yr/36000 Miles, $1000 down $399/month with a buyout of $11,900 at lease end.
I think I’m going to purchase... any thoughts?
are you sure you are entitled to $7500 on a lease? Either way it's a good deal with the utility rebate, unless you commute more than 120 miles a day it's a no brainer.

I personally don't think rapidgate is hurting sales, it's just EV sales in general and many are waiting for the next big thing.
