Better not to break down or have an accident with a Tesla. The brand has the highest repair cost on the market, just after Porsche. This is what emerges from a study conducted by the SRA (Automobile Safety & Repair) which brings together France insurance companies. According to this study conducted over the year 2021, Teslas had the highest repair costs in their segments.
Thus, the Model 3 comes out on top ahead of the Mercedes C-Class, Renault Talisman, Peugeot 508 and Audi A4. Compared to a BMW 3 Series, its repair costs are 20% higher. The Model S does even less well since it is about 32% more expensive than the Mercedes E-Class, ranked second. The other models in the segment could almost pass for low-cost against the American. As for the Model X, it is one of the bad students with the Porsche Cayenne.
