When a car company announces that you can get a 2nd-hand Model S for $1,000 (or $3K for the “best value” option) it’s like a magic bullet for car shoppers.
Sure, there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding that price point.
How much does a 2-year lease cost?
How much will you pay for the car?
Will you get a warranty?
Will it be the same model or a different model?
All of these questions will affect your decision.
But that uncertainty has been replaced by a new reality: The Model S, which is the first electric car to go on sale since the introduction of the Model S E and E-Type in 2010, will be offered at a higher price point than ever before.
Model S is now listed for $47,995 in North America.
That price, coupled with the fact that the vehicle can be leased, means you’ll get a new car that’s more affordable than ever.
And that means you can take a chance on a car that could make you a $10K+ income in just a few years.
But it gets better.
When you lease a 2.5-liter electric car, the lease will automatically renew unless the car is sold within 30 days.
If the car isn’t sold within that time, you can cancel the lease.
But the same car can only be returned if the car gets a second lease or if you buy a second car, as long as it’s the same one.
So if you’re going to buy a new 2.0-liter Model S you’re better off buying a 2,500-mile Model S or a new model with better mileage, than a car you’ll never use.
For example, if you bought a Model S in July 2020, you’d pay a $47K lease price.
If you bought the same Model S from April 2020 to June 2020, the price would be $44K.
If you’re looking to buy the Model X, the Model 3, and the Model Y, the prices are $48K, $50K, and $54K.
The Model 3 is more expensive than the Model 7.
If this Model X and Model 3 are both purchased for the same price, you’re actually paying $49K for a new vehicle.
The price difference between the two vehicles is also more than $50,000.
So what’s the best way to find your Model S secondhand?
That depends on how much you’d like to spend.
If your car is in very good condition, like it had been through some major repairs and had just been re-bonded, you might want to pay $100K more for a second hand car.
If it’s in a really good condition but is no longer used, like you’ve just driven it or you’ve given it a good cleaning, it might not be worth it.
For cars that are in very bad condition, the best option is probably to buy another Model S. In these cases, you would be paying about $40K more than you’d get for a 2 year lease.
For a 2 month lease, that would be a whopping $80K.
In any case, if the 2nd hand car you’re considering is a $40,000 or $50-100K vehicle, you should definitely get the best deal.
And you’ll save money and get the car you want.
But for some buyers, the car that they’ve always wanted is the 2.3-liter V6-powered version of the 3.5 liter V8.
This is the one you’ll need to get a better deal on.
It’s available for $42,500 in North Carolina, California, Georgia, and Texas.
The $42K option is the best value option, as you’d end up paying $35,000 for a car with a higher mileage.
And it’ll save you more than the $55K option for a similar 2-cylinder.
That $45,000 option is great for people who like to drive their cars every day and drive a lot.
But for the people who want a car for the weekend or when they need to be out in the country, this $42 option is an excellent value.
But what about the $40k option?
This is for people whose car was sold within the last few years, meaning that they’ll have a 2/3rd or more of the mileage that the car had in 2020.
You’ll still be paying the same $45K price, but the car will have a lower mileage than before.
If that’s the case, you’ll probably want to buy something like a 2019 Tesla Model X. The 2019 Model X has a $49,995 price tag, and is a great option
