Personally, I would stay away from any of the new EVs until they are out in the road for 2-3 years. I have been driving my 2019 model 3 for two years, no problems and the best thing is if you are driving long range, there are plenty of tesla supercharges with more being added all the time. Love the free Over the Air updates, zero maintenance and the Auto Pilot. We will see how the whole EV story turns out.I'm planning on hanging onto my 2019 3 until they have a 4680 version with a range > 400 miles, and maybe even then it won't be a compelling upgrade. The S is out because of the yoke, if they offer a standard wheel with stalks in the future that could change but I doubt that will happen because Elon never admits mistakes. The X is out even if it had a normal wheel, it's way to big and it's unreliable.
I do have a reservation for an Aptera, it's the coolest looking car on the planet and it will have incredible range because it's so efficient. I've reserved the 600 mile version. The Aptera is at least a year away, they are just going into beta now, and I won't make a final decision until I can test drive it. Assuming I get one I'd likely keep the Model 3 as well. Aside for the Aptera there is nothing on the horizon that looks interesting and doesn't cost more than I paid for my house. I like the Lucid Air but there is no way on God's green earth that I'd spend that amount of money on a car which of course leaves out the EQS and the Taycan as well.
We just got ours a couple months ago but unless the unexpected happens...no reason not to keep for at least 100,000 miles (6 1/2 years) hopefully more. It is a commute care that gets 15k miles a year so 150k might be unreasonable because I don't think we'd keep a car 10 years Tesla or ICE...
The real question I wonder is what would someone pay for a 6 year old Tesla with 100,000 miles?
To a great extent it would depend on what the tech and cars are like 6 years from now.
In addition to range, charging times, and, more importantly, safety and autonomous capabilities.I guess I have little imagination but not sure what other "Tech" I'll need unless we are talking range. Still have an ICE BMW SUV and a Fiat Spider so not all in on "tech" at this point. Tesla was for the gas savings, free "paid lanes" and HOV w/ one person benefit.
About half of the original 3LR price is my bet. I think a 3P (and S LR) will depreciate faster and be worth about 40%. I think an S P will be worth more like 33%.…what would someone pay for a 6 year old Tesla with 100,000 miles?

Took me 3 seconds to Google it, which is about the same amount of time you took to downvote an accurate post.Have any examples of such vehicles on their original packs and/or drive units?
And the battery is warrantied for 8 years, I understand, and it probably will go twice that long. Thassa lotta miles.probably unlimited kms, the problem is the battery really.... if that fails its an expensive replacement. everything else is reasonably cheap except for rocker panel damage.
Notice they mentioned they replaced six battery packs? They've also had vehicles that have been thru at least one replacement drive unit. Tesloop also shutdown awhile ago. Before COVID killed them, there was stuff like Tesloop suspending shuttle operations on October 1 - KESQ.Took me 3 seconds to Google it, which is about the same amount of time you took to downvote an accurate post.
It’s no secret that most owners love their Teslas, but not many can say from experience how they hold up over the really long haul. One that can is Tesloop, a shuttle service in Southern California that operates a small fleet of Models S, X, and 3. Each of Tesloop’s vehicles logs around 17,000...cleantechnica.com
The Roadster and Model S have completely different batteries compared to the Model 3 and Model Y. Terrible comparisonWhenever your battery dies. Based on Roadsters or early Model S, you won’t make it 10 years.
A drive unit replacement out of warranty may also have you reconsidering ownership.
Yet the Model S has a longer warranty on the battery pack. Go figure.The Roadster and Model S have completely different batteries compared to the Model 3 and Model Y. Terrible comparison
