I want a Tesla Sooo Bad ...

FWIW I have over 4500 rides in an all-electric Chevy Bolt - it's not a Tesla, but has many of the same benefits. Mine is recharging as I write for $0.025 per mile driven.

Used hybrid is 200% better choice than an EV.

Only new(ish) EV have the range for rideshare. So ppl using EV are paying the steepest part of the depreciation curve. Those Bolts aren't cheap. You bought it new, didn't you?

Having a ton of money tied up in a car that could be totalled tomorrow with the hope that it will go 200-300K miles is lunacy. It gets totalled tomorrow, the ins. company writes you a check for half what you paid. At that point your losses are locked in. Game over.

A hybrid that gets 40+mpg will only spend 5K in gas over 100K miles. There are tons of used hybrids that can achieve this feat.

Spending 30K+ for a newish EV so that you can save 5K in gas over 100K miles (probably half that when electricity is factored in) is "doing it wrong".

Just stay with ur hybrid until you can afford a telsa. otherwise you'll be back in the same situation a week later and 20 grand down and even further away from that telsa.

Side upgrades are just a waste of $$$. You'll be looking at a Prius next and be going it sorta like a telsa too!

But can you recite the Oscar Meyer jingle without looking it up? Oh wait. That's Armor hot dogs.

BTW - Skip the used S. Wait for the Model Y starting at 40K. Add 3K for 3rd row. This will be the car with the best chance of achieving the million-mile power train Tesla aspires to. Imagine paying off the loan and driving a Tesla for only tires and the cost of charging.

Really?

Y price tag will be 45000+$, maybe closer to 50,000$+ after all the perks have been added
Model 3, will be 39,000$+cosmetics= 45-50k$
You can buy the Model 3, that has less than 10,000 miles for 36-40K. Higher miles can be had for low 20’s. Range for cheaper version is around low 200’s , then it goes to 300 range for the expensive 3’s.😉
Y range limit will be low to mid 200’s to 300.
No reason to go for the low 200’s range, so most model Y will go for 50,000$+Y will not have the stupid falcon wing doors 😁
Extended warranty on a TSLA is around 200$/month👍, that is after the 100,000/8 years is finished +insurance might be slightly higher.
You will definitely get better pings and tips😁

Electricity is 20% cost of Gasoline..... gas is approximately $0.20 mile & electricity is $0.04 a mile !
