Last month, Credit Suisse said auction activity suggests very high resale value for the Model S.
Today the WSJ corroborates the claim, citing data from NADA’s used car guide. Even while the Chevy Volt, Plug-In Prius, Nissan Leaf and Ford Plug Slug are coming off lease and stinking up the joint, the Model S is emitting no such odor.
The WSJ dryly attributes this to Tesla’s low sales volume. No mention of the fact that Tesla builds genuine excitement and is immune to gas fluctuation and the inevitable ROI formulae. Classic WSJ. Oh Rupert.
