It seems like there are a lot of recent Tesla owner who is having buyer remorse due to this new AP2.0 with self-driving hardware announcement. Since Tesla has already said there is not going to be an option of upgrading current Tesla with the new AP2.0, the only other option of getting the upgrade is to sell it and repurchase a new Tesla. I would imagine that some of us is willing to do this (especially for those who recently received their vehicle) and sacrifice losing a few thousand dollars in the process. The question I wonder is how much we can sell our vehicle for and what are some of the best ways to sell our vehicle. Perhaps Tesla should have a buyback program where they can specify the depreciation % they’re willing to buy back for vs. how old the vehicle is. This may be a win win situation for them since the Tesla pre-owned web site literally does not have any Model X for sale and I would suspect that there are people who does not care about AP2.0 and is looking for a good deal on a slightly used Model X. This is especially true if you have a Model X 60D (with a 75 kWh battery) that is no longer available from Tesla for such a good deal. Other than a wishful Tesla buyback program, perhaps we can all help each other out by suggesting some of the best way to sell our almost brand new Model X. Also, does anyone knows if we can still claim the $7,500 tax credit on our tax return this year along with the state rebate if we sell our vehicle before the end of the 2016 tax year or would we have to wait until after the 1st of the year to sell our vehicle and still get the rebates?
