How I Used & Abused My Tesla — What a Tesla looks like after 100,000 Miles, a 48 State Road trip…
Steve Sasman

Nice story but I don’t think a Tesla pays off.

I own a VW Up! with a 1l engine. I took it on a 4 week trip to Iceland (starting from Munich) where we had a litte incident with an exploding gas bottle that burnt half the trunk. It still drove 5000km after that without repair.

I bought the car new for 12000€ and spent around 4000€ on gasoline. I spent less than 1000€ on repairs and service so far after 65000km. So it is 17000€ for 65000km.

Comparing this for the 70000€ you spent on your Tesla I could have this car 4 times.
