Buying a Tesla

An owners guide to buying a Tesla, and an attempt to see through the hype surrounding these cars. They retail for anything up to £160,000 so not cheap, and if you walked into an Aston Martin or Bentley dealership, you'd almost certainly be treated very differently.

We've split the site down into a few sections to help

Before you buy

We cover a range of topics that you need to be aware of regarding the ownership experience of a Tesla. We touch lightly upon charging, depreciation and some of the common features which generate so much hype like Autopilot. It's also worth having a read of the other sections including the Owning section which covers details of charging to make sure it fits in with your lifestyle.


If you're thinking of buying, then knowing what to buy, and which options, can be a challenging. The choice of model, battery size and options all need to be considered as pretty much every choice is an expensive one.

Buying used

We have also created a guide to help you when buying a used car.

Car Prices

We have produced the most comprehensive used car search facility for Tesla cars including cars for sale from other dealers in the UK, the most comprehensive list of cars in the US, and a wide range of other cars across Europe:
UK Cars
US Cars
Other Cars


If you take the plunge, then we have a section on useful information on what it's like to drive, where to charge, how quickly it can, the different charging schemes etc. It also covers warranty and servicing advice as these are not the same as traditional cars.

A bit extra

Finally we provide some other general advice on owning the cars, what accessories are useful and even how to clean the car. We do spend some time detailing some of the issues with the cars as we believe a balanced and informed view is essential for any buyer
