Tesla starts Roadster buyback program - SFGate
Sad to see such a disparity for odometer numbers. Would be better if Tesla's pricing stayed higer on all cars to show that engine wear and tear is different from e-motor use.
I guess the 1.5 and 2.0 makes a difference to them but have wee seen that in used Rpadster sales? Miles vs model number?
...Tesla would likely resell a 2010 Roadster with 2,900 miles for $93,500, according to the company. ...A 2008 Roadster with 31,000 miles would probably resell for $73,300....
At 31k the max Std charge is down to 140 miles at most (from 190) so buyer will be an interested participant in the Li-Ion longevity experiment. Wonder if they sweeten the mechanical warranty for the re-buyers.
Absolutely. 2.0s and 2.5s go for a good $10K-20K more at the same mileage. Some of that is often due to more upgrades - but not always.
Wasn't there a price increase between the 1.5's vs. the 2.x's? And is the increase in price between the two relative to that difference?
Where do you get this information from? In my experience it it waaaaay off.
I am close to 31k miles in a 2010 and my standard charge is down to 180 (from 187 at 500 miles).
Two to three miles loss per 10,000 miles seems to be the average.
150,000 miles should be at a 145 standard mile range charge.
My 2010 is pretty much identical, but with less mileage. 30,000 km (18,750 miles) - 288 km down from 301 km (180 and 188 respectively).
My 2010 is at 21000 miles with a max standard charge of 185 mi ...... actually more ..... last night charging as reported by my Tesla Tattler was 185 ideal miles with Battery at 98% and temp at 24C. Do the math and #992 is hanging in there.
I wonder how many Roadsters will be traded in on Model Ses?...anybody hazard a guess?
Agreed. I have about 14K, and I have lost about 1 mile from my standard charge. Still usually 190 or 191.
I realize that this is all pretty off-thread, but I'm at 23,000 miles and I can get as many as 185 ideal miles, though I'm usually in the low 180s. I also lose a mile or two if I let the car sit for a few hours after charging ceases.
I know there are (at least) 3 ready to go right now in the pre-owned program. Gotta figure there will be at least a few more.
> 185 ideal miles with Battery at 98% [botbldr45]
?? 98% sounds like a Range Charge, unless this is something peculiar to Tattler.
Re the rosy reports of Ideal Miles on a Std Chg vs odometer as per several well-used Roadster owners, great news, this is encouraging. But can you still make the long trips you used to do when the car was new? The Ideal Miles gauge is pretty much just a voltmeter so over time will you still get the same work out of the batt as originally? How is this algorithm estimating KWHs capability? Since I have no clue I'm sceptical. Must use an actual test.
Here, I've got 2 round trips: one is 120 miles essentially flat. The other is 190 miles with a pass of 1500 ft, with a summer alt route of 180 miles with the pass at 2500 ft. As there are no tasty charge possibilities at either city, the rule is NO charging allowed. Just manage to get home with a few coulombs remaining in the batt. We'll see how this plays out over the next few years.

As there are no tasty gas stations at either city, the rule is NO fueling allowed. Just manage to get home with on fumes remaining in the tank. I'm going to lobby BP and Exxon Mobile to put in gas stations along the way.
I agree...what were there originally...about 1450 Roadsters in North America?...I'd venture that well under 10% of these get traded in for a Model S...

roadsters being prepared to being sold by Tesla
According to the statement on this thread jcstp, it's a mix of both "trade ins" & vehicles in for service...
Yes, Menlo Park has a constant flow of Roadsters coming through for various reasons.
It used to mainly be prep for new sale, but these days it is mostly customer cars in for service.
