Leasing a Model S could potentially be considered a third option, but generally speaking if you can’t afford to buy a new Model S on a loan, leasing will probably be out of range too.
Let’s talk about the Model 3 for a moment—it’s an amazing vehicle—and here at Find My Electric, we love the Model 3—for sure. But what if you have your heart set on a Model S? Well, in that case it might be hard to “settle” for a Model 3…
It’s definitely up for debate, but the Model S is likely one of the best-looking sedans of all time—it just exudes “tech cool,” and as much as we love the nimbleness and value of the Model 3—we have to say Model S has the edge on looks.
The good news is that if you want a Model S, and don’t want a Model 3—the used Tesla market is your best friend, because some amazing deals can be had! You can actually get into a Model S for under $30k in some cases, and tricked-out, P100D models can be had in the $60k range now—so, there are some great discounts in the used Tesla market for those who can’t afford to buy new.
