What is the total running costs (not including costs on the website designer as part of the upfront costs) of owning a Model S in Australia? I can think of: electricity - depends on usage - not particularly interested in this here. registration - assume this is the same for any car - my last registration fee for my existing (including TAC and insurance duty) was $719.90 in Victoria for the year. maintenance of the car - as described here . If you pay in advance, looks like $4,500 for 8 years (depending on how far you drive), or average $562.50 per year. insurance - how much do insurance companies charge? Is there anything else I missed?
