    The Tesla Model 3 is upon us, and it’s already being heralded by many as the most important car in decades.

    But whether you’re one of the nearly half a million people who have already given Tesla a $1000 deposit, or someone who is wondering if it just makes financial sense, this video is for you.

    At $35,000 dollars, the Model 3 is the most affordable Tesla to date. And with its 220 mile range, 126 MPGe, and 0-60 time of 5.5 seconds, it’s proving to be quite the little EV that could.

    Very enticing indeed.

    But the primary question remains: What is the TRUE Cost of Owning a Tesla Model Three?

    While the question is simple, the answer is not.

    The devil is always in the details, and so we will take a look at a couple of other popular gas powered cars for comparison, and look at Total Cost of Ownership over 5 years.

    We will also explain the ugly truth about MPGe, and tell you what we think is a better measurement.

    And if you’re counting on the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit, we’ll talk about why you may not even qualify for it.

    Lastly, we will provide you with some cost calculators to help you reach an educated conclusion, based on your specific situation, because where you live & how you drive, really does affect your bottom line.

    What about the Tesla paint problems? How much will be rusted in 5 years? What about the battery depreciation and replacement cost? Which car is the lowest cost over 10 years? Also, if too many people go electric, the cost of gasoline will go down and the cost of electricity will go up.

    No mention of the mandatory Tesla upgrades, where if you don't fork over several hundred dollars you can't use your car. On the costs of the Civic, I own one, and I drive twice the miles and in temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit (Northern Canada)...and my maintenance and fuel costs combined do not come to more than $2000 per year. Sorry but this comparison is waaaay off.

    Which Model 3 is $35,000...? I haven’t seen them below $40,000.

    This is also the only video I’ve seen that has a Tesla costing more to own. Literally the ONLY one.

    That's if you sell your car after 5 years.
    Not every environmentally friendly is it ?!
    I finally got rid of my SUV after 16 years - that's about 2 more cars that did not need to be produced.

    After 8 years warranty over, you'll pay the prices what's you been saving. Battery needs to replace $15k-$20k, maintenance and replace parts very expensive. My 2000 Honda Civic 368,000 run for ever
