So you want to buy a Tesla? That’s great news! You have come to the right place. Here we will go through the different Tesla models you can choose to buy, as well as telling you all about the features. Whatever you require, at EV Sales we have a Tesla just for you.
The benefits of buying a second hand Tesla
When buying a Tesla, there are many benefits. The free Tesla supercharging is the first thing that comes to mind. Second to that, the large front and back storage space really does impress. Tesla’s also have ample class and style. They were really the very first viable and impressive EV to hit the market. The supercharger network is also very impressive with over 20,000 Tesla superchargers in the UK. You can charge a Tesla from 0-80% in a super quick 60 minutes.
You will be happy to know that there are many benefits to buying a second hand EV. Firstly the cost is considerably less when purchasing an EV second hand as opposed to buying it new.
Every one knows that as soon as you drive a brand new car off the forecourt, the depreciation of the vehicle is instantaneous. You won’t have that problem though with a second hand EV.
There aren’t any hidden fees either. When going to car showroom, you get admin fees added plus the salesperson usually tries to add on other extras. The overall cost of the car is probably around 10% more than what you originally had in mind.
Most dealers or private sellers selling second hand vehicles spend more time with the buyer in general. This is compared to main dealerships focusing on commission when selling new. You’ll be able to see if the car has been well looked after by referring to the log book and reviewing service history.
A reputable second hand car dealer will provide you with a warranty of some sort, as well as MOT and tax.
You want to buy a Tesla, but which one is right for you?
You may have a large family, in which case the Tesla Model X very comfortable 7 seater could be for you. Maybe you do a lot of miles, you would probably be better off with the Tesla P85D. Alternatively if it’s mainly you in the car but possibly the odd passenger from time to time, then you might want to buy a Tesla Model 3.
The Tesla Model S is a stunning saloon car. It just oozes class and sophistication. The range on a Tesla Model S can vary from 180 miles to 240 miles depending on the type you go for, that being an 85, 75 or 100.
As with all Teslas, you get to choose a P for ‘performance’ model, a D for ‘dual’ motor or both if you so require.
All Tesla Model S EVs come with a large frunk (front trunk) and a huge rear boot. Perfect for suitcases or golf clubs plus more besides.
If you have a large family then you may want to buy a Tesla Model X. With 7 seats, this very spacious EV will keep everyone happy. It has falcon wing rear doors which you can control the opening and closing of using the centre console screen. Kids and adults alike will absolutely love this dream car.
