Lease vs. Buy? If you can't decide, @GreenCarReports has you covered.

I'd buy, I refuse to worry about battery replacement costs it's not really a big deal considering how much you'll save in fuel and maintenance costs. And if the car is upgraded in future model year upgrades who cares, car companies are always brining out new models, facelifts, and tech upgrades. I bought my current car when the model was first introduced I've kept it in great shape and it's still very new looking. There have been a few tech and options upgrades and it has had a facelift for 2013. But my car is still good looking and a blast to drive. So I'm going to keep it and enjoy it until the i3 comes out which coincidentally will be the same time my factory warrantee runs out on my current car.
