Used Tesla Model S 14-present
Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Tesla Model S hatchback?

Among conventionally powered rivals, the Porsche Panamera comes pretty close in terms of luxury and prestige. The 4 E-Hybrid model has strong performance, is superbly built, has plenty of space for four and will impress the neighbours. The electric range is comparatively short, though, and the car thirsty.

The Audi Q7 can seat seven in normal mode, like the Model S, and its e-tron version only five. The e-tron is a plug-in hybrid and not a fully electric car. It’s remarkably refined and has lively performance and a comfortable ride. The regular Q7 is capacious and practical, too.
