Hello Tesla owners, I need some inside help from people that know and love the car! So here's the deal. I am due a new company car at the end of the year. Typically they let us choose what we want and set the budget at something like a passat - circa £25-30k and we have that for for years. I want to tell them why they should sped what "looks" like 3 x as much on a model S, so need some help with compelling reasons as to why this will be worthwhile. It will be used for work and personal use, so can't claim vat back. Anyway, here are my thoughts. Can you tell me if I'm NUTS or if there is method to my madness and any other thoughts / pointers? 1. + Government Plug In Car Grant. Drops list price by £4,500.00. 2. +FYA. As far as i can see, the car can be offset against company profits, so that knocks another 20% off the price. Although I think you pay 20% of the resale value back when you come to sell. 3. - VAT. As it is both work and personal use, the VAT cannot be reclaimed. 4. + FREE SUPERCHARGING! This will save around £15k in fuel over 4 years (100,000 miles) 5. - Insurance will be higher 6. + Lower maintenance costs? No oil or filters or cam belts etc? 7. + Lower depreciation value than passat 8. + Battery and drive warranteed for 8 years (passat engine is 3 years or 60,000 miles) 9. + Lower NI payments by the company 10. + BIK rates diving in a year or two. So while i pay more now, in a short while this will plummet which helps me, but also keeps up resale value. 11. + Autonomy and safety is improved which reduces likelihood of accident or incident which means less chance of unexpected costs or time off the road! 12. I estimate total cost over 5 years (as i would be pitching that) would be about £3k more expensive in the Tesla (£7.4k over 4 years, BUT if you sold the cars at the end, this would swing to Tesla S favour, being £12k cheaper over 4 years or £14k cheaper over 5. This is all guesswork for now. His concerns will be. A) Will recharging impact job (most days 150 - 250miles). B) how the hell will he present costs to the finance chiefs Any help welcomed!
