For many fans of Elon Musk and his companies, a Tesla is the absolute dream car. Unfortunately, even the car manufacturer’s cheapest vehicle, the Model 3, still costs far too much, despite the price reduction and environmental bonus. An alternative to buying and leasing is the car subscription. But how much do you pay for it and which providers can you trust? We answer these questions in this guide.
Tesla Subscription: That’s what a Model 3 costs you
Of course, how much the Tesla subscription costs you per month depends on the car and the monthly mileage allowance – a Model 3, for example, costs significantly less than a Model Y. The following example shows you what you should look out for when looking for the best provider: the monthly mileage, the minimum contract term, the costs for additional kilometers and the insurance conditions.
As of March 2023, for a Tesla Model 3 At least 599 euros per month for most providers plan on. On the platform smive.de there is an example offer: The Stromer was first registered in December 2022 and has 325 hp. You can cancel the contract monthly after six months.
For almost 600 euros you can get one here monthly quota of 750 kilometers – if that’s not enough for you, you can increase the number in 500-kilometer increments. The price increases significantly as the quota increases: for a total of 1,250 kilometers you already pay 96 euros more, in the next step it is already 256 euros. If you exceed the maximum running range, each additional kilometer will cost you 36 cents.
Then it is important to select the insurance package – be sure to read it the insurance conditions through before you decide. Depending on the amount of the deductible in the event of an accident, a further 16 euros are added monthly.
The final factor is the age of the drivers and how long they have held their license. If you are under 21 years old and have not had your driver’s license for 2 years, you pay 30 euros more. The maximum you pay here is for the Tesla Model 3 1,369 euros per month – a proud price.

Not only established car rental companies and manufacturers such as Sixt, Hertz, Mercedes, Volvo, Volkswagen, Mini, Seat, Audi and Porsche now offer car subscriptions, the trend has also some startups spawned.

If you find a new company online that is not listed here, make sure that an imprint is included. After all, one provider after the other is currently springing up.
