[13.04.2019] The electric car Tesla Model 3 was offered for a short time for a price of $ 35,000, but this variant was not available and has now flown back from the assortment.
Elon Musk (CEO / CEO of Tesla) had said that the electric car Tesla Model 3 should be available for only $ 35,000. However, you could only look at the cheap basic version online, but not yet buy.
The prospective buyers, who have already completed the reservation process and therefore had paid the reservation fee, now get, according to Tesla, the Model 3 with the otherwise chargeable Standard Range Plus package.
Since the autopilot assistance system is standard equipment, it can be assumed that the base price will increase.
The differences between the previous basic version of the Model 3 and the new basic version is in the equipment package "Standard Range Plus". This package provides a slightly higher range and top speed:
The standard model comes according to the US automaker 350 km (EPA) far, the standard plus model 390 km. The final speed is then 225 km / h instead of 210 km / h.
In Germany, the electric car Tesla Model 3 costs 45,480 euros
If you look at the US prices, you must not forget that these are generally stated without the comparable VAT. Therefore, the selling price for the electric car Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus is around 45,480 euros.
The low-priced entry-level model of the Model 3 could be available again in the future, but this will be a software-reduced variant.
Because like any other economically acting company, Tesla has to cut costs as much as possible, for example, by producing as simply as possible.
To simplify the production process, the Model 3 Standard will become a software-limited version of the Standard Plus. At the same time, it should no longer be able to order online, who wants to buy the cheapest model, this must do in the future by phone or in one of the Tesla shops.
Presumably one wants to achieve such that the salesmen can still change the customers.
