Yes I'll have one........if someone feels like getting it for me as a Christmas gift.

I'm less likely to be able to afford one than I am to be picked to captain the next moon mission.

Yep the Electric Hummer will be beyond the reach of most, the Tesla Model Y on the other hand will be more affordable, and when they start producing them out of the Berlin Tesla factory next year, they will be in demand, maybe by the time I reach state retirement age in 5 years, I might just be able to afford a Model Y that has come of a 3 year lease.

With the price tag starting at from 45k how much do you realistically think you will pick one up for at 3 years old ?

The tesla model 3lr has a predicted rv of 58% after 3 years making it about 29k? thats still alot of money, I expect the model Y will have a higher rv due to being a more popular car

Itís very hard to predict the price of what a 3 year old high mileage car will be in 5 years time, going of what Tesla Model S sell for today at 3 years old, which new costs around 50% more than a Model Y.

I would predict that 3 year old high mileage Model Y, will be anything from £15k to £20k come 2026.

Your right it is hard to predict, In 2026 the model Y wil have been in the uk for between 3/4 years. I wouldnt use the model s as a indicator as large cars suffer depreciation far more that smaller cars.

Look at

Merc s class vrs c class
BMW 7 series vrs 3 series

I suspect the model Y will have a far greater RV due to being a popular vehichle type, high mileage will help, but with very low running cost i suspect these will be a popular 2nd hand car.

Only time will tell.

Yep Bessie, the Berlin built Model Y is going to be one hell of a car, completely different to the Model Y being produced in Fremont and China.

The Berlin Model Y is almost a complete new design apart from the body work, it will be using less cells of the 4680 form factor instead of those tiny 2170 cells, so the battery pack will cost less to build, and will give longer range as well as forming part of the cars structure.

Radical new wiring technology of the like that has never been seen in the car industry before.

One piece casting for the chassis, which will be cast from the worlds largest casting machine, for a car that is.

Even the paint shop at Tesla Berlin is said to be the best of itís type in the world.

Tesla have learned so much from building the Model 3 and Model Y, and all the good stuff will be coming out of the Berlin factory.

I agree with the above thatís why Iím saying youíve got bob hope of getting a 3 year old brilliant car for 70% less than itís new price.
Do the maths your looking at 29k and upwards, whilst the battery still has its warranty the residual will be sky high, the battery in a ev is virtually the same as a engine in a normal car

I have looked at road tests online. Tesla 3 is pretty good but I don't like the central giant touchscreen that controls everything.
The Hyundai Kona or Kia equivalent get great reports with similar range to Tesla but the 5 year warranty!
I might consider an electric car as replacement for our Mini in 2022, the Hyundai or maybe electric Mini would be a strong contenders as an everyday car.

Yep 664DaveS, they recon that you soon get used to a screen doing everything, I am driving a Citroen C5 Aircross at the moment, at first I did not like having to control the heater settings from the screen, but I soon got used to it.

Tesla must be at least 10 years ahead of the pack, when it comes to battery tech, of course in time that gap will narrow to the point weíre it makes no difference but it could take other makers twenty years to catch up with Tesla.

I am not sure if Tesla will ever get full autonomous driving approval, they seem to have enough issues with autopilot although mostly down to user error.

Back in the real world the VW iD3 looks more like a realistic option, just a pity that the first models do not have any towing capability.

Seriously doubt it will take up to twenty years, I reckon.
