Neat.>During the first 300,000 miles the total combined maintenance
and fuel costs of the Tesla Model S were $10,492, with a total of
12 days in the shop. Had this been an Mercedes S class, the
scheduled routine maintenance and fuel would have been $86,000
($52,000 maintenance and $36,000* fuel) with 112 days of servicing,
or for a Lincoln Town Car $70k,000 ($28,000 maintenance and $42,000
fuel) with around 100 days of servicing.Not sure why they mention
the fuel cost of these cars without citing the electricity cost of
the Tesla. It does make the numbers bigger.

the Tesla, but it does state it is included in the total.

To me, no part of that article was that surprising (impressive
nonetheless) except for the $6500 headlight repair from "driving
through deep water".Wonder how exactly that happened, and what
damage was caused to the car.
