Fuel Savings
Electric vehicles are less expensive to fuel than petrol powered vehicles. The average person drives approximately 12,500 miles and spends around £2,200 on petrol per year. In comparison, the cost of electricity to power Model 3 over the same distance is 7 times lower. Over the five year average length of car ownership, that's approximately £9,500 in petrol savings.

We've assumed a fuel economy of 7.4 miles per litre for a comparable petrol powered car. We've also assumed the national average of £0.16 per kilowatt hour for electricity and £1.31 per litre for premium petrol over the next five years.

Electric Vehicle Incentives
Electric cars offer compelling financial incentives for business and personal purchasers. These benefits include the UK Plug-in Car Grant of £3,500, Reduced Employer Class 1A National Insurance Contributions (company cars only), Exemption from London Congestion Charge, London Ultra Low Emission Zone Exemption, Salary sacrifice scheme available to business drivers as well as Significantly Reduced BiK Taxation for Company Car Drivers.

Our electric car has saved us £6000 in petrol over the last two years. …Our electric car has saved us £6000 in petrol over the last two years. Seriously interested in this after test driving one at Tesla Stockport last week.


You must be doing 50,000 miles a year to be saving that much or 30,000 with free electricity.
These are an absolute steal, that’s a whole lot of car for the money!
Just a warning that as the RRP without the grant is still over 40k, you will be liable for the luxury car tax of £320 per year from year 2 until year 6. This obviously isn't massive if you are prepared to pay £40k for a car but it's annoying due to the zero emissions which applies from year one and the car is obviously exempt.

Was quoted 2 to 3 months.
Err its 35k USD in the US, not GBP. Even plus VAT thats still way more than they charging here!
Still crazy price, you can buy a great ICE car for less than 20k GBP.

That'll buy you enough fuel to fly Emma Thompson and the other luuvie hypocrites around the world many times.

I took it from news article lol but fixed now
Plus the "list price car tax" of £320 a year for the 5 years 2 to 6.
Musk got his maths wrong again in trying to get below the 40k barrier by forgetting to count the delivery charges. Best of 3 maybe?

Yeah, biggest issue with these as with thee original pricing even changing the colour took it into the luxury band!

That’s why I park my nice car in the middle of two spaces although generally I don’t have time for supermarket shops. They deliver now

Great price. But for me you only want a Tesla because of the autopilot. Not sat in a model 3 but the first model X is like a Hyundai inside quality wise.

Only a small handful of US buyers actually got the Model 3 for $35,000 USD.
And, have you checked the USD/GBP exchange rate lately!

So within the cash option you can select "I commute to London" under …So within the cash option you can select "I commute to London" under Estimate Payment it takes an additional £9,000 off the purchase price. So how can they tell if you actually commute to London? Including this, Base Price £38,090 but with discounts £25,590. With full self driving capability is £43,890 down to £34,890. Without VAT that's £22,158 and £26,992 respectively. I am so tempted if I was carrying on contracting and I didn't have children!


They dont just knock £9k off the price, that figure is a estimate of the money you'd save from not paying the london congestion charge over 3 years (this is excempt).

Hi, I can’t see the Estimate payment option on the U.K. site. Can you provide a link or screenshot please.
Do you still get the usual Tesla electronic charge card for free rapid charging up to 100000 miles?
Perhaps equally of interest and surprising to me is that Tesla is among the most unreliable car on the market. Good luck with getting all that electronics fixed forbes.com/sit…ts/
What's with the £35k entry-level price?

I'm making 20-28k miles / year
With free electricity that would be around 10k-12k savings per year.
But electricity is not free.

Has anyone bought a 2nd hand Tesla? Warranty? Service? Reliability?
To be fair it's an incentive, need more electric cars on the road. If that gets someone into an electric car over a polluting BMW and helps promote yet more people (because they see the vehicles in use) then I can live with it.

You should see how much the oil industry is subsidised (cough, crisis in iran)
Getting very close to something I can justify now....they are finally offering PCPs on these, but currently the residuals they are offerings on the long range version combined with a 4.9% interest rate and minimum 10% deposit still keep it unaffordable for someone who only does 10k miles a year.

My petrol car is a second quicker to 60 and is £250 a month cheaper on a PCP. Not *quite* there yet Tesla but getting closer....
I don't understand if the government are pushing electric cars that the road tax is so high. My Leon FR is only £14 a year and will be exempt around Birmingham from any proposed congestion charge because it is so clean. The government really need to get their priorities right.

Yep but don’t forget just how green electric cars are. If the research money had been put into something different we might not end up paying all the money it has cost only to find in some of our life times we will move to something completely different again which is actually greener.
Free super charging is unfortunately gone, and you didn't/dont need a card - you just rock up at a supercharger and use what you need.

You can use a referral code which I believe gives you 1000 free miles, so that's worth doing.

The 35k USD is freely available in the US and has been for months. The average USD/GBP exchange rate over the last year is approx 1.3 so STILL 10% more even after VAT AND UK gov £3.5K grant.!

I'm interested in finding this 'free' electricity that has been mentioned in posts.
Does 'free' refer to cost or energy?

It's a good price if you're looking at buying one - heat added.
Not sure about Tesla but a lot of electric car manufacturers only 'rent' you a battery (some you can buy it outright at the start) and this cost is also forgotten about when the user is quoting how much money they're saving. For example a colleague of mine has a Renault Zoe and it has £80/month battery lease and has it capped to 10k miles making it basically cheaper to run a small diesel without the charging/range hassle.
