Tesla and Athlon Team Up To Lease Model S and Roadster in Europe

Environment

Tesla and Athlon Car Lease team up to provide a leasing program for the Tesla Roadster and Roadster Sport in Europe.

In a recent press release, Tesla Motors and Athlon Car Lease announced an agreement to begin a lease program for the Tesla Roadster and Roadster Sport in Europe. The program allows "companies to lease the Roadster in some of the most populous European countries" such as France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands. The deal covers the Tesla Roadster and Roadster Sport and eventually the Tesla Model S, which will make its way to Europe by late 2012.

Based in Palo Alto, California, which is also home to social networking giant Facebook, Tesla has delivered over 1,650 Roadsters in over 30 different countries worldwide since its launch in 2008. The Tesla Roadster is the world's first sports car EV, but production has now been discontinued. The upcoming Model S premium sedan should make its way into the North American market by mid-2012. It will have a much lower base price ($57,400) than the Roadster which cost around €99,000 or roughly $109,000.
