We almost hesitate to recommend the large and in charge Tesla Model S because of its heady used-car prices (thanks to its remarkable resale value), but it still beats most new EVs in terms of its range and technology. It also looks to the untrained eye exactly like a new one. Depending on which version you choose, the 2015 Model S is rated from 88/90 to 101/102 mpg-e, with an operating range between 240 and 265 miles. Consumer Reports gives the 2015 above average marks for reliability in all respects except for its complex in-car electronics. According to NADAguides.com, a three-year-old Model S retails for between $51,575 and $74,575 (you’ll pay $75,700-$136,200 for a new version).
