Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

One Pay Option

I know I should never do down payment on a leased car. If the car is totaled or stolen, I will lose all my money.

Is the same true for one payment option.

    A single pay lease is structured just like a regular lease, but with a lower money factor (in exchange for all of the payments being made upfront). If the lease ends early because of a total loss, it is assumed the payments were being made as a normal lease, and the single pay amount is pro-rated and the remaining "payments" are returned to the lessee.
