The model 3 is supposed to be 36,200 - 44,000. Assuming they can shave the price down to 30k even a pickup truck is reasonable at that price.

The real question becomes how long does the savings take to pay off? A gas engine pickup new can be half that price, 15k new, so how long does it take to start saving?

Do you ever start saving? I’ve never tried to the math on a Tesla, but I did buy a new Camry last year. And as I was doing the math of the hyrbid vs gas, the break-even was after 9 years of owership. And that was me assuming the hybrid has identical long term maintenance cnsiderations (which i don’t think is actually true).

Until gas prices skyrocket, hybids and electrics are not more practical. They’re cool. They’re advancing technology. But they are not cost effective to an owner.
Teslas are known for their horrible quality and reliability. Tesla alone spends more than twice as much money on warranty cases than Ford or GM. But if you think those 2 have exceptional quality, I guess a Tesla will be something for you...
High warranty costs reflect Tesla’s struggle with quality

About to give up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
