Apples and oranges.
The people with the means to be interested in Teslas won't be buying Fiestas but big gas guzzling Benzes & Beemers instead - or worse.

They may have bought a Prius as a green-washing status symbol in the past, even though it always was below them.

A ten year old Tesla with a marginal battery pack is worthless, unless you part it out.
A 10 year old fiesta won't bring much more though
