Tesla Improves Used Vehicle Listings With Actual Photos (Finally!)

Ever browsed Tesla’s used car listings? If so, you’ve surely noticed that the company wouldn’t show you the actual car — just stock photos of the models. Now, at last, Tesla has added photos of the actual car being sold to some of its used vehicle listings.

Ever browsed Tesla’s used car listings? If so, you’ve surely noticed that the company wouldn’t show you the actual car — just stock photos of the models. Now, at last, Tesla has added photos of the actual car being sold to some of its used vehicle listings. Naturally, this improves the customer experience, since people want to see photos of the car they’re buying before purchase. Buyers don’t like wondering what the car they’re purchasing actually looks like.

In the past, photos of the specific car being purchased could be requested, but doing so triggered a manual system that sometimes took several days before you’d get the photos. Adding the photos directly into the listings makes it that much easier for Tesla to service used car customers and should lead to quicker and easier sales — it’s the industry standard in used car listings to see numerous photos of the car online.

When we bought our used 2013 Tesla Model S back in 2015, we did so sight unseen. But we were well aware that the process wouldn’t be adequate for many buyers.

The improvement has not rolled out to all of Tesla’s used vehicle listings yet, but more and more listings are showing up with photos every day. To see if a listing has photos of the actual vehicle being sold, click on the right or left arrow to scroll through the available images and any additional images will carousel into the pane.

In related news, the used price of a Tesla Model S is now well-established just over the $30,000 mark, while the cheapest price of a used Tesla Model X in the mid $60,000 range. Tesla has a page set up for used Model 3s, but there aren’t any to be found as of this writing.

It’s worth noting that these pages default to sorting the listings by zip code, so it may be worth resorting it by price if that is your top priority.
