Two days ago, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) unveiled its second-generation Model S sedan, which features a second-gen version of its battery pack that can handle up to a 100 miles on a single charge.
The car is already one of the most affordable electric cars on the market.
With a price tag of just under $60,000, the car can be driven on public roads for a few hours without breaking a sweat.
Now that Tesla has made it to the point where the second-year Model S can be purchased without a monthly fee, it is time to consider the price you will pay for a secondhand car.
How much will a second car cost?
If you are an electric vehicle buyer looking for a car with a high-end premium performance, this is a car that should be on your list.
While a Tesla Model S will set you back around $60K, a second Tesla Model will cost a bit less, but you’ll still be paying more than $50K for the privilege.
The Model S offers an incredible range.
You can drive an EV from Los Angeles to Portland, Oregon without ever needing to refuel.
You will still need to plug the vehicle in every few hours to maintain a healthy charge, and you will also be subject to the same stringent emission regulations as your regular vehicle.
A second car is not a luxury for everyone.
A $30K car will be a luxury, but a $70K car is a luxury if you’re not an avid rider.
However, if you are a serious EV owner and a Model S is what you are looking for, the Model S should be one of your top choices.
What should you consider before you buy a second battery?

In order to buy a Tesla, you need to have a Model X in your driveway.
If you’re looking to buy the Model X for yourself, then you will want to think about the battery costs.
If your next Model X is a high performance car that has a lot of room to grow, then it may be more expensive to buy one.
As you can see in the picture below, the Tesla Model 3 will set the $50,000 mark.
Tesla will likely start selling the Model 3 for about $50k.
When will the Model Y arrive?
Tesla is planning to begin production of the Model y on May 20th.
