2 Owners in 25000 KM's. Interesting.

 

I almost certainly wouldn't consider a car without AWD nowadays.

They are usually demonstrators bought by first owner.

@networkn the Audi etron might be one to consider instead. Towing capacity to 1.7T (?) and doesn't have the other niggles you mentioned.

Etron is a solid traditional car, not the best range and will suffer with NZ's 50kw fast chargers, but supposed to be a slightly more efficient version coming?

Sure, and an extra 3-50K on top :) If I could get one for $110-115 I might seriously consider it.

 

I don't want to tow, I want to attach a bike rack to it.

Can you not just use a roof rack?

Or seasuckers etc?

The Model X can have a Tesla approved towbar attached. A bit more expensive than the S as a new vehicle but there's this on trademe

Not practically.

 

4 Bikes, all heavy mountain bikes, 2 of them kids one, lifted onto the roof. Sounds like a nightmare.

 

I found a couple of aftermarket options I'd seriously consider.

 

The i-pace was nice when I drove it, the boot is stupidly small for an SUV though, and I don't really want a big heavy thing with big body roll. I like my low to the ground performance station wagon, I just don't get why Audi hasn't done an A4 or BMW a 3 Series EV yet!

They're about the same price new as a model S.

I can get a decent S for around $110-115K which is a year old.

 

Yeah, the Jag is a bit of a rip and has a pretty small boot for an SUV.

 

Now that unfortunately, my German Shepherd won't be with us in a few weeks or a month or two at the longest, our requirements for a low to the ground vehicle and extra large capacity is gone, but two coming up on teenagers means I still want a fair amount.

If Oz, then fully supported by Tesla NZ (speaking from experience) even supercharging. If Japan, plug is completely different and not supported by Tesla.
