Even though they are the car of the future, even something as forward thinking as a Tesla has a shelf life. Whether your car has simply just given up due to a mechanical fault or there’s reasons beyond your control that mean it’s not viable anymore, National Scrap Car can help you get the very best price for your car – without any hassle.
Scrapping Teslas – The Most Common Reasons
Unlike they’re internal combustion descendants, there are a lot fewer mechanical problems that can cause a Tesla to be scrapped, however the chances of a component failure resulting in an extortionate repair bill are much higher, due to the general cost of parts and the complexity of repairs. You may also have been involved in an accident resulting in damage that may not have been enough to write the car off, but is enough to, again, make the repair work too expensive for your budget. Whatever the reason, National Scrap Car is here to make it as stress free of an experience as possible for you.
Most Scrapped Teslas
Tesla has only produced five separate models since its founding in the mid-2000s, but we at National Scrap Car have only had three of these come through our books. Neither the discontinued Roadster nor the brand new Model Y have made it to our scrap yards yet, but of the Teslas we have seen, the Model S makes up the majority. Hardly surprising given it;s the oldest Tesla still in production.
- Tesla Model S
- Tesla Model 3
- Tesla Model X
With the Model 3 being one of the best selling cars in the UK in recent years, expect to see it potentially overthrow the Model S and top the scrap charts in the near future.
What affects scrap value?
The value of your Tesla as scrap will be dependent on a number of variables, including the age and the specific model of car you are looking to scrap. The price you’re offered will also be affected by the condition of your electric car, the mileage that it has gone through, and any further history that you are able to provide.
If you’d like to read more about how scrap values are calculated, we’ve put together a handy guide where we’ve gone into further detail on all of the above.
