Tesla Opens Up Sale Of A $35,000 (Used) Electric Car Today

Making electric vehicles affordable (and fun!) has been one of the foundational goals of Tesla and it has officially delivered on the goal of selling a $35,000 Tesla today.

There are a few used Model S on its website that are hovering around the $35,000 mark, with one that can be had for just a hair less … as I write this.

Making electric vehicles affordable (and fun!) has been one of the foundational goals of Tesla and it has officially delivered on the goal of selling a $35,000 Tesla today.

There are a few used Model S on its website that are hovering around the $35,000 mark, with one that can be had for just a hair less … as I write this.

Tesla has offered up the option of used Teslas as a way for those who can’t wait for the standard range Model 3 to get into a Tesla in days rather than months. The reality of that promise tends to ebb and flow as demand for Teslas rises and falls, taking the inventory of used Teslas with it. (Tesla’s new partnership with auction companies may have something to do with it as well.)

As of this writing, there is one Tesla priced less than $35,000, but another 16 that fall under the $40,000 price point. That puts a very well trimmed used electric car within reach of many more thousands of people and feels like a heck of a great buy.

Perhaps more impressively, 8 of them come with the 85kWh battery, which results in a stated range of around 265 miles — though, that has likely dropped a few miles on the higher range vehicles.

Tesla is even putting the cherry on top for its used vehicles, as they all seem to come with free lifetime Supercharging. Most charging will still likely happen at home, but it is a nice little bonus that makes it easier to charge when on the go and does translate to some real savings on top of the usual savings from switching from a gasoline or diesel vehicle to an electric vehicle.

Lifetime free Supercharging is also a nice bonus for anyone looking to start a Tesla-based business like Tesla Shuttle to run a more responsible, environmentally-friendly enterprise. The downside is that now the entrepreneurs among us are going to have to run the numbers to see if a new Tesla Shuttle, Tesla on Turo, or other startup makes sense with these new prices.
