Tesla Stops Selling $35,000 Model 3 Online

  • Tesla Model 3 Standard Range dropped from online configurator

But online customers will no longer be able to order the Model 3 Standard for $35,000, a long-promised price for a vehicle that has been seen as essential to Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk's ambition to disrupt the auto industry. In Germany, Tesla is charging a base price of 44,500 euros (plus a handling fee of 980 euros) for this version, which offers a WLTP range of 415 km.

After the federal tax credit available on its cars halved January 1, Tesla has dropped prices, added features, streamlined its model lineup, and introduced new lower-priced options for the Model 3, including the long-promised $35,000 base Model 3 Standard Range. All Model 3 configurations are available, according to Tesla, and the price obviously varies with each. Other features like Tesla's onboard music streaming service, navigation with live traffic visualization and heated seats will also be disabled. Just like in the US, the entry-level version with a range of 386 kilometres has added Tesla's semi-autonomous driving technology as part of its standard equipment list. "Between the cost cuts, waning demand for its vehicles and now making the US$35,000 Model 3 much harder to buy, the company is now quietly realising it has to play by the same rules as every other automaker".

The rear-wheel-drive Long Range Model 3 has also been removed from the website and joins the Standard Range Model 3 as an off-menu model that must be ordered in-store or on the phone. Customers in the United States can choose from 10,000, 12,000 and 15,000 mile annual usage options, depending on your driving needs and budget. Because of this, Tesla chose to take the $35,000 model off the menu and offer it on the side for those who really wanted it. Simplicity appears to be the name of the game, all the while making things slightly more confusing for those who want to spend the bare minimum to get a Tesla. Ordering one requires a call or visit to a Tesla store. For reference, buying a Standard Plus Model 3 with Autopilot used to cost a total of $54,300.

Michael Owen believes Liverpool are certainties for the Champions League semi-finals after their first-leg victory over Porto . There were a few more half-chances in the second half but Liverpool failed to make the scoreline a little bigger.

But those choosing leasing over owning can not purchase their vehicle at the end of the lease. The regular package is what will now come standard with all Tesla cars.

A higher variant to the base version, Model 3 Standard Plus begins with a price of $37,500.
