If you’re interested in a Tesla Model X for cheap, you won’t find one. But this is the closest thing: a 2016 Tesla Model X for “only” $72,999, making it the least expensive Model X currently listed for sale on Autotrader. The only problem? Somehow, it has covered 62,000 miles since it was sold new just a year ago.
Before I get into the particulars of this car, let’s talk Model X in general. There are currently 52 different used examples of the Model X for sale on Autotrader, and the average asking price for a used Model X is a whopping $98,500. That’s big money, which is why this one — at $72,999 — seems like a bit of a deal.
But, of course, it’s cheap for a reason, and the reason is miles. According to the Carfax report, this Model X was sold new to the first owner on March 2, 2017 — just a year ago — and it’s covered 62,000 miles since then. That’s commercial trucker-level mileage… in a Tesla. Needless to say, this is the highest-mileage Model X on Autotrader; the next highest has just 27,100 miles.
Fortunately, the seller notes this Model X has an 8-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, meaning it doesn’t really matter how many miles are on the car, as it’s all covered — at least until the warranty expires. This Model X is offered by a private seller in Bountiful, Utah, north of Salt Lake City, and it’s finished in dark gray with a black interior. Find a Tesla Model X for sale
