I found this little bit of information today on Autoblog Green
Tesla Motors and Athlon Car Lease have reached an agreement for the world's first leasing program involving Tesla's Model S battery-electric luxury sedans.
Athlon, a division of the Netherlands-based Rabobank, has reserved 150 Model S EVs and plans to lease them to corporations in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain. Athlon had a similar agreement for the Tesla Roadster convertible EVs last summer.
The Model S, which is set to debut in July, will offer buyers three single-charge mileage options ranging from 160 to 300 miles. In the U.S., the Model S will start at $57,400 before a $7,500 federal tax credit kicks in. The price jumps about $20,000 for the 300-mile version, which Tesla calls the world's longest among production battery-electric vehicles. Tesla's taken more than 8,000 reservations for the sedan.
Last month, Tesla, which has never been profitable, said its fourth-quarter loss widened 59 percent from a year earlier, but forecast 2012 sales to be between $550 million and $600 million, which would beat analysts estimates and would be almost triple the company's 2011 revenue of $204.2 million. The company also forecast that it would sell about 5,000 Model S vehicles this year. Tesla has sold more than 2,100 of its $109,000 Roadster convertibles in the past four years. The company discontinued production of that model in the U.S. last year.
