What Is the Rarest Color of Tesla

The Rarest Color of Tesla Is Silver Metallic & Red Multi-Coat!

The rarest Tesla color is none but the Silver Metallic and Red multi-coat. These 2 paint colors have been used by only 6.3% – 10% of drivers who purchase officially. 

In fact, you won’t find these 2 colors anymore in the Tesla paint shop called Giga Berlin (an advanced plant). Plus, it’s hard to locate these shades in other paint shops.

Even though both of these shades are rare enough to find in Tesla, still their popularity level seems to raise recently.

What Color Tesla Has Highest Resale Value?

According to most drivers of Tesla, the Pearl White Multi-coat, Midnight Silver Metallic, and Solid Black are some of the colors that have the highest resale value.

The Pearl White multi-coat and Solid Black are great under cool or sunny temperatures. If the weather is above 54.44 degrees C, the Solid Black color of Tesla would stand better. Similarly, at 45 degrees C temperature, the Pearl White Multi-coat color performs well.

In the hot or cold weather when temperature raises or decreases, the Midnight Silver Metallic does best beating both white and black.

However, you might need to consider the cleaning + maintenance since both white and black would show dirt, scratch, and other marks visibly. In that case, the Midnight Silver Metallic performs well.

In terms of price, the Pearl White Multi-coat color won’t take a single charge for paint however the Solid Black will need around $1k – $1.5K based on series. 

The Midnight Silver Metallic will cost $1.5k on MX and MS series. But, in M3 and MY, this shade would cost nothing to paint on.

In short, both Pearl White Multi-coat and Solid Black have good resale value in different terms for interior and exterior, unlike most colors.

Note: All the interior color option in Tesla holds similar resale value.

Which Paint Color Is Holds Up Best on Tesla?

In my opinion, the paint color that holds up best on Tesla is none but Silver Metallic (SM) and Midnight Silver Metallic (MSM).

These shades won’t catch dirt easily and ruin the beauty of the car thanks to the mixture of black and white.

Now about the scratches and marks, the SM and MSM do excellent to cover up them without making the surface look ugly. The cleaning of these paint colors on Tesla seems good no matter how much you wash the car.
