Curious buyers who lease a Model S are now able to return it in the first three months with no penalties and with the remaining payments waived, something Tesla is calling the “happiness guarantee.” CEO Elon Musk announced the deal on the company’s blog, and he said the payments were also as much as 25 per cent lower because US Bank “has a much lower cost of capital than us.” Tesla leasing is available in 38 US states (full list below). Canada isn’t on the list yet. Contact your Local Canadian Tesla dealer for any questions.

Of course, there is a catch for the offer. If people turn in their Model S within three months, they can’t immediately lease another one. Musk doesn’t say how long the wait is.
