Post subject:  Tesla Motors

I've had a ride in one of them Tesla Electric motors today, Jesus they're like shit off a shovel. £3 to charge it from empty to full overnight at your home and ½ an hour rapid charge at the free charging points popping up all over the country.

They're a bit pricey @£50,000 plus for the entry level model rising to over £70,000 for a top of the range model.

The inside is like something from a space ship, there's a massive screen in the middle where you control everything from the radio, internet, heating to the camera mounted on the front and rear.

They're the motor of the future.

Trust me, if we had one he would be the only one driving it. No one else would get a look in. :sad:

lets add it up...

£50K inc vat, you go vat regd so its £41,666

over 5 years youd buy £6000 worth of fuel a year = £30,000.....so thats £16,000 (plus the leccy)

over 5 years youd have a IC car serviced 10 times? at £200 average = £1000 = £15,000

residue value after 5 years... dunno, say £10,000

so it will cost you £6000 in reality


or £1200/year to scare the 5hit out of pedestrians who dont hear you coming and passengers when you clog it


must get a test drive i think

I think you also need a maths lesson.
If the vehicle is £41,666 and you take off £30,000 of fuel that would be £11,666.
10 services at £200 would be £2,000 and not £1,000
Don't forget that the Tesla would also need servicing.

even cheaper then...

£41,666 - £30,000 fuel = £11,666 minus services @ £2000 = £9,666 residue £10,000 = a profit
