While waiting for my Model 3 I'm considering purchasing a used RAV4 EV (2012, 30k miles, $13.5k) to fill in any gap in time between turning in my BMW i3 lease and getting the Model 3. An obvious positive for this particular used EV is that the drivetrain (motor, battery, inverter, etc.) is provided by Tesla and should therefore hopefully be reliable. A negative is that it's a little expensive compared to other (non-Tesla) used EVs. If I really like it I may keep it alongside my Model 3.
Does anyone have experience with this car? Are there any issues with this car of which I should be aware? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
