Which Tesla should I get?

Which model of Tesla is considered the best? I want to get a Tesla but I know more about the brand as a whole than I know about the individual models, so I’m having a hard time choosing one.

Of course, it’s ultimately up to you to decide which Tesla model is right for you. However, here are some differences between the models that might help you make a choice:
  • The
    Model S
    . This is often called the best Tesla model due to its high performance. The Model S has the best specs of all of the Tesla models in terms of acceleration time and can seat five people comfortably. However, the car costs a whopping $94,990, so make sure that you’re ready for that kind of investment before committing to the Model S.
  • The
    Model Y
    . While the Model Y doesn’t have impressive specs when compared to the Model S, it’s still impressive when compared to other cars. It can seat seven people, making it more suitable for larger families. Additionally, the Model Y starts at $58,990, so it’s more affordable than the Model S.
  • The
    Model 3
    . Like the Model S, the Model 3 can seat up to five people. However, the Model 3 is significantly less expensive than the Model S with a price of $44,990.
  • The
    Model X
    . This model can seat up to seven passengers and has very impressive specs. The Model X is the most expensive Tesla model available, with prices starting at $104,990.
