Tesla has expanded its strategic relationship with Sixt Leasing to include Switzerland as well as Germany. With 10% down on a 36-month lease, Sixt offers payments of approximately CHF 810 - 950 (US$919 - $1,078) per month, depending on the mileage selected by the customer.
Tesla suggests that Model S customers will save up to CHF 300 (US$340) per month in fuel and tax savings compared to premium internal combustion vehicles, resulting in a potential effective net cost of driving Model S of about CHF 660 (US$749) per month.
Electric vehicles are exempt from annual road tax (CHF 40, US$45 per month) in certain cantons including Zurich, Geneva and Ticino. Tesla expects the bulk of the monthly savings (CHF 100 - 260, US$113 - $295) to come from driving with electricity instead of gasoline—including access to—Tesla’s free Supercharging Network—at 10,000 - 25,000 kilometers (6,200 - 15,500 miles) per year.
