How it works
Leasing an EV with Xcelerate is as easy as it gets. Simply follow these steps and we’ll handle the rest!
Why lease with Xcelerate?
We are a team with over a decade of experience in the EV industry. Started with leasing the first Tesla’s in the country in 2012, combined with a team of former Tesla leaders from 2011. We have helped grow the EV space to what it is today.
02Stay Current with Technology
As technology in vehicles advance, we are beginning to see cars look more like devices. Similar to how providers treat phones, we give you the ability to get in an out of an EV as innovation continues to grow.
As interest rates begins to rise, leasing becomes a more attractive method of purchase than the traditional financing route. For businesses, we can help you structure your EV purchase, trade-in cycles, minimize your total cost of ownership, and maximize your write-off potential.
04Delivery Journey Partners
Being EV experts, we intimately know and understand the direct-to-consumer and enterprise delivery journey with Tesla, Ford, Rivian, VW, and all other EV manufacturers. We will guide you through what to expect, and get all questions answered to make your delivery experience seamless and enjoyable.

Frequently asked questions
Nope. If your goal is to come in with only your first payment out-of-pocket, that option is certainly available. Much like any other financial transaction, 100% advance is only offered to those who meet the necessary qualifications.
It depends on the type of lease you enter into. Some leases offer a simple interest payoff if you replace the lease with another lease. However, as a general rule of thumb, most leases will have pre-payment penalties. You should discuss this with your leasing specialist prior to committing to a new lease.
Absolutely. We understand that managing the length of your vehicle lease terms can be one of the best ways to meet your financial and personal transportation expectations. We offer lease terms as short as 24 months and can extend to as long as 60 months.
Nope. While our programs are most applicable (and flexible) to those with at least “good” credit, we understand there are sometimes unforeseen events that could affect your credit–events that don’t necessarily impact your ability to make lease payments on time. We suggest you not be deterred from applying, even if you have a few minor issues on your credit.
No. Only a family member or spouse can co-sign for an applicant.
It sure can, unless the rebate is stated as only available for vehicle purchases (financing), in which case it would not transfer over to a lease. If you’re not sure if the rebate offered by your vehicle’s manufacturer will carry over to your lease, just ask one of our lease specialists and we’ll find out for you.
Yes! We created XCare EV Protection for the community about 4 years ago, which became the first and only warranty specifically designed for Electric Vehicles, with a claims process made to work around direct-to-service models (like Tesla Service). Since, we now have thousands of XCare members in almost every state in the country. To understand what warranty term options are available for you and your driving habits, navigate to our XCare page
Really glad I found this extended warranty as Tesla doesn't allow ESA for 2021+ cars. Even though my vehicle only has 7k miles on the clock for 3k can get a 10 year warranty which I think would be great for resale value if nothing else. If you think this is expensive you have no idea how much other warranties cost...

"Easy to work with. Both from an end user and from Tesla's end per the Supervising tech. Called XCare gave them my list of issues, scheduled appointment via app. Took vehicle in. Tesla determined faults, sent estimate and received approval same day. Tesla did repairs. Notified XCare and received corporate CC number, remaining balance due was $100. No issues."

"If you are looking to buy a Tesla I highly recommend using Xcelerate Auto as your third-party. I had the pleasure of working with Deb specifically. During the slow months of waiting for my Tesla, Deb always answered my questions or concerns right away. She kept me in the loop and never left me in the dark and was very honest and upfront. It can be very frustrating trying to get into contact with Tesla, however she definitely helped me get a sooner delivery date, and got the answers I needed!"
"DEB WAS AMAZING! By far the best car buying experience I’ve had in my life. Deb went above and beyond to make the purchase of my new vehicle a great experience. She was very transparent and upfront with all costs and the process. I would give 10 Stars if I could. Thank you Deb and Xcelerate Auto for helping me lease my Dream Car!"
"I bought an XCare warranty for my Tesla. The guys were great. Buying was easy, as expected. I had no problems with claims. Had two door issues with my Model X and both times I just emailed the claims team, sent them the invoice, and they paid. I have to admit I always have some trepidation dealing with insurance companies but they were very communicative and helpful. Good product, good people, good service."
