just last week Tesla listed a bunch of CPO MS' for high thirties/low fourties. Yes they are high mileage and only come with a 2 year CPO like warranty, but dam, if I had planned on spending that on a Bolt, I'd have to think hard on which vehicle I'd be buying.
Right now over 25% of the Bolt inventory is less than 50 miles away from me. The total price after all rebates, discounts, taxes, etc, of a $43,420 Bolt EV Premier is $31,430 with many to choose from.

The equivalent range in a used Tesla will be found in 85's. CPO 85's start at $45,900 OTD ($42,500 + 8% tax + $0 dest ). >50k miles and 2 yr warranty or 100k total odometer, whichever comes first.

There is some significant technology differences that were not on base Teslas in 2013/2014.

This is GM's 2017 AEB system: a Tesla will run over the targets.

Interesting reading about a 40,000 mile test of a Model S P85D:
NOTE: I forgot the dealer/GM discount which is up to $6300. I put in a more common number, $5k on the edit.

$31k not $36k. It's only $36k if the dealer is selling at MSRP.
Geezus...that's a good read, but I'm left thinking two things:

- Any other automaker would be lambasted by their customer base and likely forced to buy back many car under lemon laws if they had as many problems as that test car had.

- GM really got it right with the Volt, in comparison.

This sort of thing makes me think that the Model 3 is not going to be smooth sailing for Tesla. Whilst Joe Richguy who doesn't mind not having a car for a week while it's trucked out of state to get fixed every 4 weeks is willing to deal with it (Hey, he can just drive the Ferrari instead while it's gone), Joe Plumber is going to lose his **** over those same realities.
Yeah, that article kind of turned me off on the idea of a used Model S 85.
