Upgrade to a New Tesla
Model S is better than ever. Over the last three years, we’ve added new features like updated styling and interior, Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive, Ludicrous Speed, Self-Driving hardware and more range. We also introduced Model X, the safest, fastest and most capable SUV on the road. View local inventory to take delivery as soon as this week.
Purchase Your Tesla
It’s easy to fall in love with your Tesla, so we made it easy for you to keep it. You may purchase your Tesla before your lease ends, or at point of maturity. Your Tesla is protected by a 4-year or 50,000 miles/80,000 km (whichever occurs first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty. The New Vehicle Limited Warranty may be extended to 8 years or 100,000 miles. In addition, your Tesla is protected by an 8-year or unlimited miles Battery and Drive Unit Limited Warranty.
If you plan to return your Tesla, the Excess Wear and Use Guide will help navigate you through the process. A Tesla representative will contact you as your return date approaches.
