Tesla depreciation and current valuations

Last updated 20-May-2022

We have captured the real world historic valuation of Tesla over the years, and while historic depreciation doesn't mean the future will follow the same path, it does help understand if the current prices are realistic or a bubble. The same charts can also be used to value your current Tesla.

Use the filters to select the country, model, variant and year of car and we'll provide a bunch of useful stats to show the advertised price history which reflects the historical depreciation, numbers available at the time reflecting availability, and the current market prices. Unfortunately due to relatively small numbers of certain models we can't provide details for all combinations, however please get in touch if you feel a specific model has sold in sufficient numbers that it should be included and we'll check the data we have and include if possible.

The numbers include new, demo, Tesla used/CPO and 3rd party listed used cars for countries where we collect that information. High counts of cars early on may reflect peaks of Tesla new inventory. Prices are all based on advertised prices and not sale prices, for Tesla this is generally the same although CPO cars are sometimes discounted over time. The figures only resolve to model/year and make no allowance for features such as FSD or mileage, as such where the numbers of listed cars is small then a number of high spec, low mileage cars may lead to a higher average price, whereas a number of low spec high mileage cars may reduce the average. That said, the trend over time should still be broadly representative of the market.

To value your car you may need to make some adjustments to the average price shown. Tesla now have few options so there is generally not much variation in price after mileage has been taken into consideration however we feel the following adjustments are worth noting:

An alternative way of looking at depreciation is to look at the Tesla Cost to change as this reflects the replacement cost of the car. While your car may not have lost most much, to buy a 3 year younger model may be significantly more expensive than the value of your current car.
