So, my car is days/weeks away and I'd like to get an idea of what the lease numbers would be, the dealer is not being helpful in this regard, says they'll only discuss it once the car is actually here

the jaguarusa lease estimator looks reasonable, as in on par with most jaguar leases of the same/similar vehicle msrp, however, the lease/deal estimator on the jaguar san francisco webiste almost doubles the monthly payment - I'm assuming a much less attractive interest rate / money factor

has anyone received any recent lease quotes?

I don't think anyone has actually leased one. When I was buying mine, the lease rate was so absurd I just bought it instead...

Ditto. I think given its newness, and without an established resale market, few finance companies wanted to gamble on residual value.

This is a car currently listed on my local dealers site. Purchase price is about 74K. Overall not a great deal when compared to a Tesla. I will also be leasing because of the tax advantages. According to my dealer, Jaguar will be releasing new lease deals in March which he expects to be improved. They have had the same 2 I-Paces sitting on their lot for probably 2 months now so I’m guessing they aren’t selling as well as Jaguar had hoped, especially this time of year. I’m hoping that will lead to better lease offers next month when mine is scheduled to arrive. I think he fact that Jaguar is also offering 0% APR on any vehicle through next month also represents their poor sales may also force them into better lease offers.

EV leases are often only worthwhile if they are using it as a carbon-credit car. ie - leasing at a loss. Fiat leased Fiat 500e's for $79/m to gain CC's.

They want $8000 down on $999/m lease for 38m for the $80k SE? Reduce that by $3500 for California if you haven't used up your EV rebates yet, so $4500 down and that's about $42.5 grand for a base car or $1.28/mi for the first 33,300 miles. Certainly don't worry about mileage, drive it as much as you like and it's a better value.

But notice the $77k version has the same lease?

I'll use the $80k. About $88k with tax/crap, $8k down, $80k financed at 0% for 60m and 12,000mi a year under warranty. But in California, you get $11,000 off in rebates. So effectively $69k for 60m, 60k, or $1,150 a month, or $1.15 a mile. The residual is yours to keep. However the break even point will occur prior to 60 month, so depending on the residual, you 'leasing it from your LLC' is probably cheaper, shorter, and they can set the buyout at a modest loss. We lease machinery to ourselves. I'm not sure but I think you can lease your car to yourself if you have more than one corp.

Doesn't leasing to yourself violate self-dealing laws?
You have to have more than one legal entity set up. As McRat says, if you have more than one corporation, you can set up one to manage the purchase and leasing to your other entity.

Yes, we have a class C corporation for the business, so I'm just another employee. But our family has a LLC for capital expenditures.
HOWEVER, while I did stay at a Holiday Inn, I'm not a licensed CPA, I contract one to do our books. I would not guess at something like this.

Agreed. A talk with your CPA is best.
Also, it would not be a great idea to just set up another entity with all its costs and reporting requirement in order to float a lease. There has to be a legitimate need and it has to be cost effective.
So this is just spit balling ideas.

The current lease Money factor is 0.00352 which translates to 8.448% apr, that wipes out the entire federal credit, and then some, it's ridiculous

they can keep residual at 42% and just lease at a reasonable interest rate - usually ranging from 3% to at most 6%

at the current money factor you are paying the same lease payment as a car that costs around 120k, quite frankly it's insane

I've cancelled my (now delayed) order and had my deposit refunded, especially since none of this info was available when I ordered the car

I'm new here and looking to custom configure an I-Pace and lease it. I configured what I want online and had it estimate lease payments. It looks good and there is a button to apply for the lease financing with Jaguar Finance. Are you saying that the dealer can set different lease rates than what is shown above the "Apply for financing" button I see on Jaguar USA? Or do I have a choice of dealer lease financing vs. Jaguar Finance lease financing?
