The Most Affordable Tesla Model 3 Costs $53,700 Online

Tesla Model 3 Standard Range dropped from online configurator

Tesla Model 3 Standard Range dropped from online configurator

"For example, Model 3 Standard Plus used to cost $37,500, plus $3,000 for the Autopilot option", Tesla's post says.

Tesla is apparently moving to retire the $35,000 entry-level Model 3 before shipping the first units, though Autopilot comes standard and customers can now lease the vehicle. However, without the model listed on the website, Tesla is keeping customers in the dark about its availability. Once the lease ends, the auto will receive an over the air update which will make it completely automatic. The $35,000 Model 3 will be range-limited by software to 220 miles, and its music streaming service, navigation and heated seats will be disabled. It means the $35,000 Standard Model 3 will now be sold as a software-limited version of the Standard Plus. If you decide to skip it and later change your mind, Tesla can make the upgrade to your Model 3, but you will have to pay $9,200.

Apparently addressing controversy over Autopilot price cuts, Tesla has chose to simply bundle the feature as a standard safety feature across its entire lineup.

Jurgen Klopp braced for 'intense' second leg against Porto
It has been a stop-start first season for the Guinea worldwide , but it looks like he is finding his feet at just the right time . The problem was a little bit that in the second-half we gave a few counter-attacks away, then we had to control it a bit more.

The Tesla Model 3 actually starts at $53,700 in Canada and $39,500 in the United States for the Standard Range Plus.

As part of the changes to its online ordering, Tesla said the Model 3 Standard variant and the Model 3 Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive will be taken off the online ordering menu but will still be available for order by phone or in stores. Annual mileage options include 10,000, 12,000, or 15,000 miles for the lease term.

Given these developments, as well as the well-documented production and delivery difficulties, there is a real question about whether Tesla was ready to offer the Model 3 SR when they did and why they chose to announce a vehicle model they don't seem to be able to deliver. So the Model 3 Standard will only be available if customers call Tesla or visit a Tesla store. A challenge to vehicle demand has been the lowering of a USA tax credit on Tesla vehicles to $3,500 from $7,500 previously. "We're making these changes to ensure that our online order process is focused exclusively on the three Model 3 variants customers want most", it said. Previously, Tesla planned to put a smaller battery pack in the basic model and a larger one in the Standard Plus, the spokesman said. According to Tesla's data, the Standard Plus outsold the $35,000 base vehicle by a ratio of 6:1.
