The Most Expensive Parts in a Tesla Model S



In spite of Tesla cars having a high safety ranking from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association(NHTSA), private insurance companies have been consistently charging high car insurance rates for Tesla customers, mainly due to the high cost of replacing parts. Zimlon looks at the cost of Body Parts in a Tesla Model S and their prices on eBay. Tesla’s Sunroof was found to be the most expensive part at $4,500 followed by the roof, priced at $37,999.99. 

Customers buying a Tesla Model S by the end of the year are eligible for a $1,875 federal tax cut. According to the company, the Model S has a High Impact Protection due to its high strength architecture and floor-mounted battery pack.

Although Tesla claims to have a high safety ranking from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), insurance companies have refused to lower the insurance rates for Tesla car owners. This is mainly due to the high cost of replacing parts on a Tesla car. Zimlon looks at the cost of Interior parts in a Tesla Model S and their prices on eBay. The Dash Pad was found to be the most expensive at $550, followed by the console at $399.

 Customers buying a Tesla Model S by the end of the year are eligible for a $1,875 federal tax cut. According to the company, the Model S has a High Impact Protection due to its high strength architecture and floor-mounted battery pack.
