A Guide to Tesla – FAQs 

What is the cheapest Tesla? 

The cheapest Tesla currently available on the market in the UK is the Tesla Model 3. From new, prices start at around £42,500 at the time of writing.  

Is charging a Tesla cheaper than fuel? 

Unfortunately, Tesla no longer has their on-site cost calculator that breaks down the expenses of ownership, however Teslanomics cost calculator estimates that Tesla Model 3 owners would need to pay around $710 (£580) annually for charging costs with a daily commute of 40 miles.

What insurance companies cover Tesla? 

Keith Michaels have access to a range of specific insurance schemes designed exclusively for EV vehicles like Tesla.

How much does it cost to insure a Tesla in the UK? 

The cost of your Tesla insurance will depend on several factors. The first being the model of Tesla being insured, the mileage you intend to cover, your driving history and your age to name a few. As Teslas are a luxury electric vehicle, they can generally be more expensive to insure than competing vehicles. This is because of the cost of their technology and parts. 

However, it’s worth noting that it’s something of a misconception that electric car insurance premiums are more expensive than petrol or diesel cars. This is likely to stem from years ago when insurers had no historic data to work with when it came to repair costs. If you approach a specialist insurance broker like Keith Michaels, we will be able to arrange competitive cover at the best price for your pride and joy.
