If that can be made viable large scale, then it could indeed be very interesting.

It certainly is, it has made me put off ordering my Tesla for a couple of years, until I see how this goes. 👍😀 Lithium batteries could be old hat within 5-10 years, making a secondhand Tesla worth about £15.

I would be avoiding Tesla until they allow other garages to fix them.

I watched a video of last night of one which had received what was a minor prang. New rear quarter panel, lower suspension strut and a shock absorber, possibly a new wheel.

Insurance would only let Tesla fix it. Their estimate? $17,000! Wheel and strut was $3500, labour 80 hours (!) at $125 an hour. It would also take 2-3 months due to waiting list, so add a hire car to the bill.

Result? Car written off!

All very hypothetical to me anyway, as I can't see a Tesla or any other BEV coming within my budget of £2,500 within my lifetime.
