I didn't get a letter but I did get a call from the local Tesla sales guy working at the closest Tesla showroom. Mentioned it here.
Do they guarantee the end of your lease will coincide with CT's release date ?

Anyone on the forum get an e-mail?

I know that I've read a number of you have been tossing around the idea. Might be worth a call to see what kind of deal you can make?

Some of the lease toward paying the CT, make sure the lease ends when you take delivery of CT, etc.

Would be curious what the community finds out?

Tesla (TSLA) turns to Cybertruck reservation holders in end-of-year delivery push

https://electrek.co/2020/12/01/tesla-tsla-turns-cybertruck-reservation-holders-delivery-push/

December 1, 2020

Tesla (TSLA) is trying to convince Cybertruck reservation holders to lease new Tesla vehicles now amid an important end-of-year delivery push.

When Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck last year, the automaker started taking reservations with $100 deposits.

The highly-anticipated electric pickup truck had a polarizing design, but Tesla still managed to accumulate over 650,000 reservations, according to the latest tally.

Now Tesla is in the middle of its end-of-year delivery push as it aims to deliver a record number of vehicles this quarter to achieve 500,000 deliveries in 2020.

The automaker needs to deliver over 181,000 vehicles this quarter in order to achieve this goal. That’s more than 40,000 vehicles over its last quarterly delivery record.

Now we’ve learned that Tesla is using its large pool of Cybertruck reservation holders to help with deliveries by trying to convince them to lease a new Tesla while they wait for the electric pickup truck.

Several Cybertruck reservation holders have reached out to Electrek after receiving emails similar to this one from Tesla:

I saw you have a Cybertruck reservation with us, so I wanted to give a courtesy update and provide myself as a resource.
The single motor configuration is currently scheduled to begin production in late 2022 with delivery projected to take place in early 2023.
The dual and tri-motor configurations are currently scheduled to begin production in late 2021 with delivery projected to take place in early 2022.
In the meantime, a lot of Cybertruck reservation holders have been doing 24-36 month leases on our current vehicles to bridge the gap and experience Tesla ownership!
We are currently offering a $1,500 California Clean Fuel Reward eligible for California residents registering their car in-state on top of other California state incentives that you could apply before the end of the year.

If you are interested in securing pricing on our current S3XY models, please respond ‘Yes’ and I will be happy to give you a call.
Furthermore, Tesla appears to have delayed the timeline of deliveries for the Cybertruck since people have previously associated the start of production in late 2021 with the start of deliveries, but these emails appear to point to deliveries not starting until 2022.

Electrek’s Take
This is not too surprising. Tesla has a giant pool of emails from people who are clearly at least interested in electric vehicles.

It makes sense to try to push them to go electric early, especially with the kind of volume that Tesla aims to achieve this quarter.
As an Aussie, I'd already realised we'd need to get a model Y in the interim. It's gonna be few years wait for the CT for us

The stock price is about to get hammered.
I spiked the crap out of it and have already made more in terms of returns than any fair person deserves to.

that being said if you’re not comfortable holding for 4-8 years at this point I’d recommend dumping it
with inclusion to the S&P looming? its going up ......

As someone who is a bit late to the EV game and does not own a Tesla, i'd LOVE to be able to lease a Model 3 or Y until i can get my Cybertruck; However, i'd want the lease term to end the day i take delivery of my Cybertruck.
Same. Maybe even a 1 or 2K discount on the truck because of leasing a tesla before delivery..

No Tesla email re: leasing. In Nebraska we do not have a sales or service center due to the ignorant law protecting dealerships. Maybe the distance to a sales center has an effect on if you got the lease email offer or not as part of their predictive algorithm.

Based on what? No one knows what the damned market will do.

I’d be worried they would say yes and then push me back further to milk a longer lease out of me.

I don't think it was a "Tesla" initiative at all, just one rep somewhere. We've heard of what, two people who have got the email?

I didn't get any email, but I just made my reservation last month. My local Tesla reps here in TN did ask if I had thought about leasing one. I'm not interested in leasing one, as I know that I want one, so I'm not too worried about it.
