(wikipedia.org) The Tesla Model S is a full-sized all-electric five-door, luxury liftback, produced by Tesla Inc., and introduced in June 2012.[10] It scored a perfect 5.0 NHTSA automobile safety rating, and, as of March 2017, the P100D variant holds the record for the fastest acceleration of any production vehicle from a standstill to 60 mph in Motor Trend tests.[11] The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official range for the 2012 Model S Performance model equipped with an 85 kWh (310 MJ) battery pack is 265 miles (426 km), higher than any other electric car at the time.[12][13][14] EPA rated its energy consumption at 237.5 watt-hours per kilometer (38 kWh/100 mi or 24 kWh/100 km) for a combined fuel economy of 89 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (2.64 L/100 km or 107 mpg‑imp).[12][15] In 2016, Tesla updated the design of the Model S to closely match that of the Model X. As of January 2017, the following versions are available: 60, 60D, 75, 75D, 90D and P100D. Owners of the earlier 70 and 70D Model S have the option to unlock the 75 kWh capacity via a software update, adding up to 19 miles (31 km) per charge.[16] The 60 and 60D Model S, reintroduced in June 2016, have a US$9,000 option to unlock the full 75 kWh capacity via a software update any time after purchase.[17] In August 2016, Tesla introduced the P100D as the new top-level model. The P100D model has a 100 kWh battery, a 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 2.28 seconds, and over 300 miles (485 km) of EPA rated range.[18] The Model S became the first electric car to top the monthly new car sales ranking in any country, twice leading in Norway, in September and December 2013;[19][20][21][22] and also in Denmark in December 2015.[23] Global Model S sales passed the 150,000 unit milestone in November 2016, with the U.S. as the leading market with 57% of global sales.[24] Other leading country markets are Norway, China, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Canada, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland.[25][26] The Tesla Model S has ranked as the world's best-selling plug-in electric car for two years in a row, 2015 and 2016.[26][27] The Model S also ranked as the top selling plug-in electric car in the U.S. for two years running, 2015 and 2016.[28] As of December 2016, the Model S is the world's second best selling plug-in electric car in history after the Nissan Leaf.[29] The Tesla Model S won awards including the 2013 World Green Car of the Year, 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year, Automobile magazine's 2013 Car of the Year, Time Magazine Best 25 Inventions of the Year 2012 award and Consumer Reports top-scoring car in its road testing. In 2015, Car and Driver named the Model S the Car of the Century.[30] After declining to recommend the Model S in 2015 due to reliability issues, one year later Consumer Reports added the car to the magazine's recommended list.[31][32]

What may get damaged after 8 to 12 years are the batteries which are expensive, but they have a large lifespan, so you shouldn't be worrying about that at the moment. Now let's talk about money. I will compare the maintenance costs for a Tesla and for a conventional car over a 5 year timeframe. Every conventional car needs what I'm writing here and these are just average prices, if you have an expensive limousine or a supercar, prices will significantly increase. If you don't have a brand new car, expect to replace some of the following components - clutch, injectors, turbocharger, fuel pump, water pump, gaskets, a battery or a starter motor. So, the results are as they follow: To drive a brand new Tesla for 10,000km you need: $720 / year of which only $250 are required for fuel or electricity. Now here's a thing - if you would install solar panels with a power output of 1.3 kW, you would save those $250 for fuel each year. The solar panel system would cost you around $2,500, and guess what? Even Tesla themselves are selling solar tiles for your home, so if you buy the car and the solar panels, you might get a great offer. Also, in most countries the tax for pollution, emissions or whatever you may call it is zero. In Romania it's zero and in other European countries it's zero as well. Insurance is pretty much the same as for any regular car with the same power - 258 HP. Now let's move to conventional cars which have different costs of running. If we take the average fuel consumption around the world, we need $4,800 or $960/year, but only if the car is new. If anything else breaks, you will need to pay extra. If your car is a second hand one and you have over 200,000km onboard, expect to pay double the price or even more, especially if it's a Diesel. The DPF alone costs $2,000. This price is available for the United States, where gasoline is cheaper than in Europe. In the US, the cost per litre is around $0.65, whereas in Europe the average price is around $1.30, so exactly double the price. In Europe, the conventional car would cost you around $1,560/ year or $7,800 in 5 years. If you have an engine with 258 horsepower or even more and we take an average fuel consumption of 15L/100km you would need $1,290 per year in the United States or $2,180 per year in Europe. Now, to be honest, in Europe, the average fuel consumption is around 7L/100km or even lower, so you need around $1,180 per year, but keep in mind this: It won't be as fast as a Tesla and luxurious as a Tesla. You also need to pay a tax for pollution, at least in the UK or in Romania. The average cost is around $300 / year and in more expensive European countries, it's much more expensive. In a Tesla that cost is zero. Now let's make a more realistic comparison. The Tesla Model S has 700HP and it's AWD. It's faster than the Lamborghini Huracan from 0 to 60mph, so let's compare these two. It's not fair to compare a powerful electric car to a standard inline 4 conventional car with 100hp. So here we go: The Huracan needs around $25,000 / year - which includes maintenance, fuel, taxes, and insurance, whereas the Model S needs just... $2,250. It's just... 11 times cheaper to drive a Model S than a Huracan, and guess - zero emissions. Now I have to admit... you can't reach 340km/h in the Tesla like you can in a Huracan, and after 150km/h the Lambo takes the lead. But... you can't summon your Huracan to pick you up, so...

Tesla: The real cost of being out of warranty

Video on the dark side of Tesla ownership and how much you can expect to pay for out of warranty costs. Tesla needs to either open up their self diagnostic portal to the public or start dropping prices more dramatically. Or soon they will suffer the fate of being a dreaded “throwaway” car like the model 3 is soon headed to be.

TESLA Model 3 TRUE Cost of Ownership Compared with a Honda Civic & BMW 3 Series

Thinking Tesla? Use our Link: http://geni.us/TwoBitTesla The Tesla Model 3 is upon us, and it’s already being heralded by many as the most important car in decades. Cost Calculator: http://geni.us/Model3CostCalc But whether you’re one of the nearly half a million people who have already given Tesla a $1000 deposit, or someone who is wondering if it just makes financial sense, this video is for you. At $35,000 dollars, the Model 3 is the most affordable Tesla to date. And with its 220 mile range, 126 MPGe, and 0-60 time of 5.5 seconds, it’s proving to be quite the little EV that could. Very enticing indeed. But the primary question remains: What is the TRUE Cost of Owning a Tesla Model Three? While the question is simple, the answer is not. The devil is always in the details, and so we will take a look at a couple of other popular gas powered cars for comparison, and look at Total Cost of Ownership over 5 years. We will also explain the ugly truth about MPGe, and tell you what we think is a better measurement. And if you’re counting on the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit, we’ll talk about why you may not even qualify for it. Lastly, we will provide you with some cost calculators to help you reach an educated conclusion, based on your specific situation, because where you live & how you drive, really does affect your bottom line. ***** Support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/twobitdavinci We Love VideoBlocks.

Of course, many of these figures will vary for you based on your interested rate, loan terms, insurance discounts, and driving habits. In my first Tesla post I took a look at solely the monthly cost of owning a Tesla (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNKVb_KMh7g) and in this video, I continued the analysis and even extended it. Now I have more data to look at to understand the true cost of owning a Tesla. The main cost categories I look at are: - Fuel/Charging Cost - Insurance - Loan Payment - Loan Interest Overall, I found that I saved over 30% on fuel and paid just under $18K including everything. That amount is mostly in part due to my 3yr term on my loan instead of the traditional longer term loans. // Question of the day? - Do you own a Model S or X?

TRUE Cost of a Tesla Model 3 (After 10,000 Miles)

TRUE Cost of a Tesla Model 3 (After 10,000 Miles)

After 10,000 miles here's how much it has cost me to own & drive a Tesla Model 3 Ordering a Tesla? Get FREE Supercharging ➡️ http://geni.us/t3sla Full Model 3 Review: https://youtu.be/47OFb8786ko Subscribe! http://goo.gl/RqU0nl These numbers are all based off my personal experience so it's not going to be the same for everyone but at least it will give you an idea of the costs and how much a difference it is driving a #Tesla compared to an internal combustion engine vehicle. I’m going to compare my #Model3 acquisition to what it would be like if I kept driving my 2007 Pontiac G6. The total cost of my Long Range #TeslaModel3 was $56,000. I also had to pay $3,422 for taxes. I am getting the full $7,500 tax credit but my car insurance increased by $500/year so assuming I keep my Model 3 for at least 5 years that brings it to $54,422. However we also have to calculate the cost of installing a home charging outlet. This cost heavily depends on your particular location and how difficult the install is. My NEMA 14-50 outlet cost $900 for a professional electrician to install, which is on the expensive side because my box was the furthest possible distance from my garage so they had to run cable underground which increased the price. That brings it to a grand total of $55,322 upfront cost for my First Production Long Range Tesla Model 3, assuming I keep it for at least 5 years. How much does it cost to charge & drive a Model 3 compared to buying gas? My Model 3 is at 10,400 lifetime miles and it’s averaging 233 Wh/mile. So far I’ve only spent $20.29 on four Supercharging sessions, and that resulted in approximately 700 miles of range which means the other 9,700 miles traveled were from charging at home in my garage. To find out how much it’s cost to travel those 9700 miles we need to calculate my electricity rate along with the Model 3’s charging efficiency. My off-peak electricity rate when I charge my car at home is $0.06882 per kWh. However, 100% of the electricity doesn’t make it into the car’s battery when charging at home. This is true for all electric cars. Edmund’s is doing a long-term test drive of the Model 3 and they're measuring the average wall-to-wheels efficiency. So far from their tests they’ve seen an 83.3% charging efficiency (meaning only about 83% of the electricity makes it from the charging cable into the car battery). And if we also account for the amount of battery that depletes as the Model 3 is just sitting somewhere not plugged in (I’ll make a guesstimate and say 3% is a fair assumption for vampire drain), that brings us to 80% total charging efficiency. So 9,700 miles at an average of 233 Wh/mile with an electricity rate of $0.06882 per kWh with an 80% charging efficiency equals $186.65. And if we add the $20.29 I’ve spent on Supercharging that comes to a grand total of $206.94 spent to travel 10,400 miles in my Model 3. If you compare that to my 6-cylinder automatic transmission 2007 Pontiac G6 which averages 21 miles per gallon and using the current average cost of gas in my area which is $2.77 per gallon, the total cost to travel 10,400 miles would be $1,371.81. That means I’ve saved almost $1,200 over 10,400 miles or maybe it’s better to say that’s $1,200 I’ve stopped having to give to gas stations since getting my Model 3. And I’m not driving a car that puts out any emissions which feels great. Also keep in mind there are free apps like PlugShare and ChargePoint that show you locations of thousands of public charging stations, most of which are completely free for anyone to charge their electric car which is something that just doesn’t exist with gas stations. Also I’ve saved so much time from not having to stop at gas stations during my normal weekly driving. It takes me 5 seconds to plug in my Model 3 in my garage. When I drove a gas car I had to get gas at least once or twice per week, and each stop took around 5 minutes. So over the course of a year that’s a huge amount of time saved from not having to stop at gas stations. We could also get into the money saved from oil changes and maintenance but that's another story. So far I’ve paid absolutely $0 in maintenance for my Model 3 so hopefully that continues. It’s been a fantastic car after 10,000 miles and it’s still just as much fun as the day I got it. I hope you enjoyed this detailed look into how much owning and driving a Tesla Model 3 actually costs.

Tesla Annual Service ► Tesla Model S Service What To Expect

Tesla Annual Service ► Tesla Model S Service What To Expect

One of the many awesome things about the Tesla is you only need to get it serviced about once a year and having had the car just shy of a year now and hitting 15,000 miles it was time! The whole process was so much better then you'd expect normally too. I went in, there was no long line, I told them my name and gave them my key, they handed me a loaner Tesla key, and I was on my way. A couple hours later they called me up and told me things were ready and we went back to get the car! It was also cool because this was the first time I actually saw a Tesla Model X in person. I have the S and the X came out at the very end of last year but still are not that widespread.

Don't Buy A Tesla! True Cost of Owning a Tesla Compared to a Porsche Panamera and S-Class Mercedes

Don't Buy A Tesla! True Cost of Owning a Tesla Compared to a Porsche Panamera and S-Class Mercedes

Don’t buy a Tesla! You heard me right, DO NOT buy a Tesla! Yes, this buyer beware message is coming from the guy who lives and breathes all things Tesla. But all kidding aside, the message of this week’s episode is not to advise against purchasing my favorite electric vehicle but to take into consideration the full cost of ownership. We’ll be looking at the cost of a Tesla, how it compares to other luxury vehicles, overall value and other costs of Tesla ownership. The first step is looking at the cost of a Tesla. Using the Telsa.com Affordability Calculator, you can determine which model best fits your budget. It takes into consideration your monthly vehicle budget, down payment amount, trade-in value, where you purchase as well as whether you want to lease, pay cash or take out a loan. From there, it spits out which Tesla model may be right for you. If you’re past the “can I afford a Tesla?” question, and you know you’re in the market for a luxury vehicle, look to U.S. News. It offers a comprehensive comparison tool that allows to view specific vehicle makes and models in detail, side-by-side while offering pro and con analyses for each one. Learn more via the link below. Beyond looking at luxury vehicle options side-by-side, I wanted to dive deeper into the data to understand the true cost of ownership. Utilizing Edmunds and Kelly Blue Book, I compared the Mercedes Benz S-Class, Porshce Panamera and Tesla Model S 75 D. The S-Class ownership costs exceeds those of the Tesla Model S by over half, while the cost to own the Panamera sits in-between the two vehicles. These projections are over five years of vehicle ownership. Looking at where and when these expenses are incurred, the Tesla Model S ownership costs spike in year three. However, overall, the Model S provides the most bang for your buck. Going back to edmunds.com, you can get a full true cost of ownership snapshot for both the Porche Panamera and Mercedes Benz S-Class. This include depreciation, financing, repairs and maintenance, etc. Note, this does change over time, so numbers will vary depending on when you look. Once I looked at each vehicle individually, I wanted to see how they stacked up side-by-side. Over a 5-year period, I charted out the costs of depreciation, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, repairs, tax credits as well as taxes and fees. You can explore these numbers via the link below. For financing, insurance as well as tax and fees, the numbers are subjective, varying from person to person. When it comes to fuel, on the other hand, the Tesla Model S crushes both vehicles as an EV. The maintenance and repair categories are other areas where Tesla takes the cake, as it comes with a vehicle maintenance package and everything else is covered under its warranty. The Tesla is also the only category where owners are eligible for a tax credit. You can learn more about the electric vehicle tax credit here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWHgBUmoxzE To calculate the true cost of ownership for the Tesla Model S, I took the deprecation data from an Auto List study, the relative deprecation percentage and the vehicle purchase price – which I calculated from the new inventory on Tesla.com. Again, overall prices will vary. However, my calculations went on averages, my location and assumptions based on the Tesla maintenance plan. This is the data I used to come up with the true cost of ownership for the Tesla Model S. While it’s not perfect, and costs may vary, overall the Tesla Model S offer tremendous value. In fact, when compared its closest competitor, the Porsche Panamera, the Model S costs $10,000 - $60,000 less. So, if you’re comparing these vehicles, consider this data. Or, if you don’t take my word for it, go take a test drive. And, if you do, let me know via the comments below. Check out the Tesla.com Affordability Calculator: https://www.tesla.com/support/affordability-calculator As mentioned, I also used U.S. News: https://cars.usnews.com/cars-trucks/compare?trims=13121-386836_12925-380450_13141-377119 and Edmonds.com to compile a lot of my data You can also view my calculations: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JhAP79vE9ymu6MURCctNuHMTS6XdKtWxHAkKdidZzds/edit#gid=0 Dive into the Auto List study I mentioned: http://insideevs.com/tesla-model-s-depreciates-only-28-in-first-50000-miles/ A BIG thank you to Wunder Capital for supporting the show.
