When you lease an EV, you forfeit the federal tax credit because it’s not your car. The lessor (automaker) gets the money, and you have to hope it trickles back to you in the form of incentives. Except if it’s a Tesla. Musk&Co. has unveiled a new business-lease structure that lets you have your lease cake (lower payment, shorter commitment) and eat it too (EV credit is all yours). Never mind Tony Stark. Musk is more akin to Flash Gordon, King of the Impossible.
