We reported a great deal on the Tesla Model 3 in the past few months, but we focused on the March 31st unveiling event and the reservation process rather than the vehicle itself, and that’s mainly because we simply don’t know much. But now as the event approach, here’s a quick roundup of what we know about the Model 3:
Tesla has repeatedly said that its third generation vehicle will start at half the price of its second generation, the Model S, which starts at $70,000 – meaning $35,000 for the Model 3.
The $35,000 price tag is before any incentive and should be consistent worldwide after exchange rate and import duties. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the Model 3 will cost “£30,000 or less” in the UK.
Of course, $35,000 is the starting price and Tesla is expected to offer several options, including different battery packs, which would bring the average price of the Model 3 higher. For example, the Model S starts at $70,000, but its average sale price has been closer to ~$90,000. expand full story
