We all known the 2012 Tesla Model S Signature Series Sedan commands a premium price tag of nearly $100,000.

But what about service costs? How much does it cost to keep Tesla’s flagship sedan in top form? And just where does that servicing take place?

$600 a year or 12,500 miles

Although Tesla is keen to point out that the 2012 Model S is a low-maintenance vehicle, it sets a 12,500-mile, or 1-year service schedule, whichever is soonest.

While there are no spark plugs, oil filters or exhaust systems to check however, de Vries quotes the annual service as costing $600, per year, including all wear and tear parts, excluding tires.

As part of the service, Tesla technicians will check the car from top to bottom, replacing every worn part except tires for free.
