Tesla's plan for robotaxi service with off-lease cars is brilliant
Tesla side-announced that people who lease a new Tesla won't be able to buy it at the end of the lease like you normally can. Instead, Tesla will put it into robotaxi service (presuming they are ready to do that in 3 years.)
This is a clever plan, because they can get lessees to pay for all the early depreciation and run their robotaxi fleet with used cars, saving almost half the cost compared to companies that have to do it with new custom cars.

Of course, if you do lease or buy a Tesla, use somebody's referral code, naturally use mine if you like, to get 1000 miles of free supercharger use.
