What used Tesla Model X hatchback will I get for my budget?
Around £70,000 is the entry point for a Model X. This will buy you an early 2016 car, most likely a 75D model, from a trade seller or independent dealer, and the car will have an average mileage for the year and a full history. Pay between £70,000 and £80,000 and you’ll pick up a clean 2017 car with a nominal mileage, although you’ll need upwards of £80,000 for a 100D model and nearer £100,000 for the P100D version.
How much does it cost to run a Tesla Model X hatchback?
There are no fuel costs, of course, but a full charge will cost around £10 on an Economy 7 night rate. The Model X takes about an hour to charge from almost flat to almost full when connected to one of Tesla’s Supercharger fast-chargers, of which there are now more than 30 in the UK.
You won’t pay annual road tax either, but you will pay a luxury car tax surcharge if it was registered after the tax changes of April 2017.
Insurance costs will be on the high side, while servicing is required annually or every 12,500 miles and servicing plans are available. A three-year maintenance plan includes three inspections in total – one every 12 months or 12,500 miles, whichever occurs first – and can be paid for up front or in instalments at a cost of £1575.
A four-year/50,000-mile warranty is standard from new, with the battery covered for eight years, no matter how many miles you do. Tesla’s over-the-air wi-fi software updates fix glitches and add features while you're asleep, rather than requiring you to book your car into a dealer.
