How Does My Tesla Model S Lease Work?
Why Choose To Lease A Tesla Model S?Back in 2012, Elon Musk outlined his vision for what he called ‘a sophisticated computer on wheels’. And that’s exactly what it feels like when you drive a Model S.Much of the tech on display verges on science fiction – from the oversized touchscreen control panel, which looks like a giant iPhone, to finer details which have become ‘quintessentially Tesla’, such as auto-sensing door handles and wing mirrors. Let’s not forget, either, that the Model S is also staggeringly fast.
Inside The Model S
Driving The Tesla Model S
A 5-seat ‘liftback’, the Model S’s powered tailgate eases loading and unloading, and leg- and headroom for rear-seat passengers is plentiful, with a trio of Isofix seats. Door bins and cupholders are scattered around the front and rear of the cabin, and a covered armrest and compartment in the centre console hide things from prying eyes.
The previous Model S option of 7 seats is not currently available, so if you want to carry more people, you’ll need a Model X.
Its high price means that the Model S doesn’t qualify for the UK government’s Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG), but as it is a zero-emissions vehicle, it is exempt from road tax and also doesn’t attract a charge when entering certain low emission and congestion zones. Low company car tax is another benefit.
A 390-520-mile range should mean that Model S recharging stops are kept to a minimum, but Tesla’s global network of Superchargers mean that lengthy stops are a thing of the past, as they can refill 200 miles of range in just 15 minutes. However, as with all electric cars, ranges vary with driving style and traffic and weather conditions.

When it first appeared almost a decade ago, the Model S had very few competitors. Fast forward 9 years, though, and it’s a very different story.
The most obvious rival is the Porsche Taycan, which can also accommodate 5 people and has a similar silhouette. However, it is a 4-door saloon and lacks the tailgate of a Tesla, making it less practical for luggage.
Tesla’s battery packs are some of the largest on the market, which make them expensive to manufacture. This does translate into impressively long ranges, though, creating a market supply-and-demand issue, which also contributes to higher prices. The onboard cabin and driving technology won’t be cheap either.
Thanks to its near 5-metre length, the Model S can carry 793 litres of luggage with the rear seats in place. When they are folded, it can accommodate an adult-sized bicycle without the front wheel removed. Under the Tesla’s bonnet, there is a 150-litre ‘frunk’ for yet more storage.
Despite it being large enough to haul around a family, the Tesla Model S sets the benchmark for electric car performance. And then some. The Plaid+ version shames many supercars, reaching 62mph from rest in under 2 seconds (if you subtract the first 0.3 metres ‘rollout’ following a standing start) – truly electrifying performance! Even the ‘slowest’ Long Range model dispenses with the benchmark dash in 3.1 seconds.
If you’re looking to lease a Model S, its upgraded interior matches that of the Model 3, so there’s less to choose between them. The S is more powerful than the 3, and if you favour a long range then versions of the S go further, too. The 3 feels more agile than the S due to its smaller footprint, but the S’s larger dimensions make it a more practical car.
Considering the first versions of the Model S arrived almost 10 years ago, there are still used examples on the road. A new Model S comes with Tesla’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty. At a basic level, that means the car is covered for 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. Similarly, the battery and drive unit is covered for 8 years or 150,000 miles, with a minimum 70% retention of battery capacity.
Its combination of zero-emissions family transport with truly scintillating performance means the Tesla Model S has become a popular leasing deal choice. Add in a high level of technology with one of the longest ranges of any electric car, and it’s easy to see why the Model S is so appealing.
