Tesla Model 3 for Sale: $150,000!

Posted on October 12, 2017 by T Sportline

The first used Tesla Model 3 (VIN# 203) was found on Craigslist with a eye-watering asking price $150,000! The listing was made by a former Tesla Employee. Since the Model 3 is still limited to company insiders and employees, the owner really went for the jugular and asked for a price comparable to a brand new Model S P100D.

This fully-loaded Model 3 was originally priced at $56,000. With a little over 2000 miles, any used vehicle would typically have a lower price than the MSRP.

The asking price clearly violated the terms of sale to employees. Per Electrek, Tesla has sent Employee Model 3 Reservation holders this email:


Each employee reservation holder will receive an email the evening of July 28 with details regarding their Model 3 reservation. Deliveries of Model 3 will be generally prioritized by geography, starting with owners registered in California or those taking deliveries at Fremont. Because employees are receiving special priority, all Model 3 cars prioritized to employees must be registered to you or your family member and may not be resold for more than the original price. Reservation holders will agree to these terms when their order is placed.

Please note the following to ensure that you can access your Model 3 reservation on your Tesla account and receive employee priority:

If you placed your Model 3 reservation under your company email address, no action is needed.

If you placed your Model 3 reservation under a personal email address, please log in to your Tesla account and update your “Account Email” to your work email address.

If you have questions regarding your reservation, visit the Tesla Support site. Tesla will send more details on delivery plans, FAQs, and reservation updates after Friday.

Thank you!

Technically, it will be very difficult for Tesla to enforce any early resale of the Model 3.
