Why does a used Tesla Model S top all other electric car options on the market today?

Electric cars still cost more than their gas-powered stablemates, though true cost to own is arguably reaching parity. Some people would actually argue that they are saving money over the long term by owning an electric vehicle. Moreover, EVs are less expensive than the once were even though they offer better performance, as well as more range and features.  

Many current EV rivals come in under $40,000. For example, the Tesla Model 3 starts at $35,000, the Nissan LEAF PLUS has a starting MSRP of $38,510, and new electric crossover offerings from Kia and Hyundai are all priced in the same ballpark. Not to mention the fact that some people can take advantage of a rebate of up to $7,500 depending on the brand. You can compare details about all EVs by visiting our Compare EVs page.

With all of this being said, why would someone want to pay more money for a used Tesla Model S than they might for a brand-new EV? Our friend Alex Guberman owns a Model S and is in the market for a new (or used) electric car. He explains why he thinks the Model S is the best option, even when compared to the Model 3.
