    I thought I'd share my cost of ownership comparison calculator here. I know there are several out there, and in fact this one is based off of one I found here about a year ago.
    I'm sure it's not perfect, but I think it's pretty good for comparing an ICE to a Tesla S.
    Copy it, play with it, let me know what you think, I'd love to hear of ways to improve it, or if you find any errors.
    It does not include an estimate of residual value.
    Here's the g-drive link:

    Thanks & enjoy...

    Thanks for sharing!

    What about federal 7.5 credit and 2.5k from California? Couldn't find it in the spreadsheet
    That's like $138 rebate monthly.

    Those .99% financing rates are a no brainer

    Thanks seenhear, that's great, I already bought my X a few weeks ago, otherwise it would have been very useful to me!

    Any and all rebates (e.g. from a utility) or tax credits (7500 federal and/or 2500 CA state) would go in the magenta cells, there are two places to enter this value, which result in slightly different monthly impact, one is on the pricing tab, the other is on the compare tab. Use only one, and leave the other empty.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Thanks for putting this together. We've already ordered our MS, but it will still be nice to crunch the numbers again.
