The Tesla Model S P 85 first reached 1 million kilometers. A simply surprising figure that most people do not even dream of achieving.
Still, it is worth considering all aspects as there are used cars with their good dose of kilometers. That is, if you are thinking of buying a second-hand electric car, this kind of information is valuable.
Tesla Model SP 85 already took with a new battery
Tesla promises that the battery will last longer than 500 1,000 kilometers with the latest hardware upgrades. With Hansjörg Gemmingen, owner of this feat, it was not much different. The first battery lasted until 471 thousand kilometers. The new battery, however, is already longer than these kilometers and remains almost without degradation.
Engine has also been changed
Like any other 1 million kilometer car, the Tesla’s engine has also been changed. That is, as much as the Tesla Model S, or any other electric car, doesn’t need as much maintenance as a fossil fuel car, it also has its wear.
Main advantages of an electric car
- Environment thanks to less carbon emissions
- Quieter driving
- Good starting power in most cases
Potential Disadvantages of an Electric Car
- Few Locations of upload
- Delay in upload
- Low autonomy (in most cases)
- Silent driving can be a disadvantage
- Battery replacement (may need between 3 to 10 years)
- Generally higher price
In short, Tesla Model S got away well under the circumstances. The only car I saw with the miles of this Tesla Model S was a very old Mercedes from a family friend who has already lost count of the car maintenance money.
We can dispute how far it is that is worth the investment in electric cars. For now, it seems a good option for me to buy a car of this new ideology. To buy used, I would wait a little longer until I realize how far the batteries will hold.
