In addition, beginning in 2021, one or more of our NEOs may participate in our R1T and/or R1S Employee Early Adopter Program. Under these programs, for which all U.S.-based full-time employees were or are expected to be invited to participate, we provide the employees, including our NEOs, an opportunity to purchase early production R1T Launch Edition and R1S Launch Edition vehicles and pay a cash subsidy for those who participate.
These employee deliveries are indeed purchases (with a monthly cash subsidy on their paycheck). They still have to qualify and finance (or pay cash) for their vehicles.
