How much do you have to pay per month for owning a Tesla model S or X? We are thinking of leasing or buying one.

    Cost to own will depend on what model you choose, price between Models range 70-120k

    Maintenance and other cost is practically zero

      Welcome to insurance.

      I also found that the insurance for Tesla is *not* more expensive than it was for my Genesis (2015 Genesis 5.0 Ultimate). It's actually cheaper.

      Honestly, the rumors about insurance always seem to be someone who owned a Corolla and they simply can't believe it's more expensive to insure a Tesla.

      Approximately it would be around $800 for a model S dual motor?

      Yes, repair is currently awful.

      My recommendation: if you collide, collide (kinda) big. The car is exceptionally good at keeping occupants safe, so a big collision will just get the car totaled and you can wash your hands of it without dealing with the repair bullshit.

    I'll give them some more time to iron out build quality.

    There a calculator on their site, and you can get a quote from your own insurance specific to where you live.

    Was planning to own one and saw this

    Hell no, until they figure their spares game and have more authorized body repair shops.
    TLDR: 12k for a fender bender
