[05.01.2019] The electric car Tesla Model 3 will be delivered from February in Germany, recently, the US company has opened the configurator for the Stromer in Germany for all other interested parties.
Previously, only those who had reserved the e-car some time ago could access it.
Those who belonged to the people who reserved the Model 3 shortly after the presentation were able to access the configuration a few months ago via an invitation link or code.
For all others, the configurator has recently been opened (end of 2018) – but not all variants of the vehicle are available yet.
Customers in Europe had to wait one and a half years for the electric car Tesla Model 3
In the US, the electric car Tesla Model 3 came on the market one and a half years ago, that the US carmaker first supplies its home market is also little wonder.
According to the page of Tesla, the first vehicles will be delivered in March 2019, if you configure them now (as of January 2019) and make the down payment.
There are currently two variants of Model 3 in the configurator:
- Once with the long-haul battery and four-wheel drive with dual engine for 55,400 euros (base price)
- And secondly as a performance variant with four-wheel drive with dual engine for 66,100 euros (base price)
For the long-haul variant, Tesla specifies the range at 560 km according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). So you can accelerate the electric car in 4.8 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, the top speed is 233 km / h.
With the performance version, you can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds, the top speed is specified at 250 km / h, but the performance is at the expense of the range, this is here with up to 530 kilometers by 30 km less than the long-haul variant,
So far, there should be up to 14,000 reservations for the electric car Tesla Model 3 in Europe
Based on the order numbers, Tesla Motors Club calculated the possible order quantities in Europe.
