    Right, sorry my head still calculates my trade in which puts it below 35.

    I got a 2% loan on 36k, which works out to about 2k interest over 5 years. So not quite, but about 2k better off than hire purchase from the Tesla site.

    2015 Model S 70 £47k
    -No Autopilot 2
    -AP 1 not included in price add £4k
    -220 real miles
    -No Dual motor
    -No FSD potential
    So your looking at £51k with AP1 minimum

    vs
    Model 3 SR+
    £37k OTR
    -AP2
    -220 real miles
    -FSD potential

    I will agree however there are some good deals on a used Model S from Tesla for around £40k but in a few years it will be similar for the Model 3

    "cheaper" model S actually don't compare favorably to the Model 3 P. It's just bigger.

    So don't quite get what you are talking about. Model 3 is clearly better value in almost every way.

    You are also comparing prices from when the £ was a lot stronger.

    Yeaph getting people to be happy with paying £40k+ for a 'cheaper' EV, sums up why Musk is so good at what he does.

    Musk is as good as a PR man as the best BMW/Audi could ever wish for. Its not a bad thing for Tesla, as getting people to spend ££££ is the ultimate aim, but equally you have to admit the Musk is full of BS as the rest of the automotive companies.

    Its hard work tracking prices on the Tesla website, I tend to use tesla-info

    This one is not a P100D but a P90D with a few more miles, there was a lower mileage one whch has sold, but you can see the prices fall daily and the upwards tick was when the other car sold

    Tesla Info: 2016 MS P90D in UK listed at £52390

    Where did you get £36k at 2% from? Would be interested to know since I'm moving to the view that I'll just finance it on a straight loan.

    Barclays using a mortgage....

    2.04% fixed for 5 years

    I actually only have 34,261 left on it since Barclays was a few months faster than Tesla.
