Tesla updated its website to include pre-owned Model S with 178 cars available in the US

It is without any public announcement that Tesla updated its website Friday night to include a section for pre-owned vehicles. 178 cars were available in 11 locations in the US.

Unsurprisingly, most of the cars are equipped with the performance package. 116 out of the 178 pre-owned vehicles available in the US are P85 or P85+. When Tesla announced the new Model S versions with dual motor in October 2014, a significant number of performance Model S owners were showing interest in upgrading to the P85D.

The Model S with a 60KWh battery pack represents only 8% of the pre-owned cars available on the website. This is in-line with Elon Musk’s comment about this version of the car representing “less than 10%” of the Model S’ sales. He made this comment when Tesla announced it was discontinuing the 60KWh version to replace it with a 70KWh battery pack and dual motor.

It will be interesting to follow the website and see how quickly these pre-owned vehicles are selling.

    I expect these to fly off the shelves, so to speak. Some solid deals here if you don’t want AWD.

      I noted the VIN(part of the VIN) in order to try to track sales. See how fast they go.

        I would expect the low end to go first. If someone wanted high end they would go for a new P85D already.

    What’s going on with that site? If I select pre-owned, any location, any Model S, any color, I get 10 listings all of which are S60s.
    If I change only the location and to Chicago, I get 9 listings, one of which is an S85; Hawaii has only 3 cars incl a P85 & a 70D.
    Bay Area listings are 8 S60s and a P85+ while Orange County has 5 S60s and 2 S85s.

    And I don’t think those S60s are going to move at those prices & mileage.
