I am planning to get a Tesla model 3. Planning to leave country in 2 years. If I sell Tesla in 2 years, will there be any resale value?

Thoughts on electric car resale? Is it a good proposition. Please share your thoughts.

Tesla guys any thoughts?

    Why are you wasting money on a Tesla if you're planning to leave in 2 years? Get a used Hyundai for 5k and resell it for 6k 2 years later.

      How can you buy for 5k and resell for 6k later? Its about enjoying life. So wanted to buy Tesla. Unless the drop is more than 10k. 10k loss I can take.

      The drop will ALWAYS be more than 10k. Cars loose as much as 50% of their purchase price within first 3 years

      Haha you lose close to 10k the moment you sign the contract. More than 10k if it's a model s or x

      When I was in grad school, I sold my pos Subaru wagon for more than I bought it for. It's about getting a good deal on both ends.

      Niceman, leasing means he will only pay 50% tax on purchase value. Also eliminates resale tax

      Resale tax is paid by the buyer

      Don’t buy from Tesla’s used inventory. It’s crap.

    Depreciation is pretty high, but it’s not so bad as BMW for example
