Following a recent price optimization for the premium sedan Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X, the American automaker lowered prices for its third Tesla Model 3. All three versions currently available cost less than $ 1,100 immediately.
Company representatives explained the reduction by completing the "expensive" routing program, which allowed additional resources to be released:
"First of all, thanks to the completion of the benchmark program, which cost us much more than we expected, Tesla was able to reduce the Model 3 selling price of $ 1,100."
The initial configuration of the rear-wheel drive of the Tesla Model 3 Mid Range Battery now costs $ 42,900 or $ 34,850, including tax reductions ($ 3,750) and potential fuel economy ($ 4,300). This model accelerates to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds, can pick up speed of 125 mph (200 km / h) and has a cruise range of 264 miles (425 km) through the EPA cycle.
The average all-wheel drive Tesla Model 3 "Long Range / Four Wheel Drive Double Drum" is estimated at $ 49,900 ($ 41,850 with benefits). This electric car accelerates to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, the top speed is 145 mph (235 km / h), and the cruise range is 310 miles (500 km).
And finally, the more advanced version of the Tesla Model 3 Performance / Dual All-Wheel Drive now costs $ 60,900 ($ 52,850 after rebates). It has the same power reserve as the previous version (310 miles / 500 km), but accelerates to "one hundred" in just 3.3 seconds and is capable of accelerating at 155 mph (250 km / h).
At the time of the announcement of the "Mid Range Battery" version, its starting price was $ 45,000, but due to a more substantial tax benefit, the minimum price was $ 33,200 (or 35,000 if you do not take into account the economies of supply).
Recall that in early January of this year, Tesla reduced the price of its electric cars in the United States by $ 2,000 to partially offset the reduction of two federal benefits (from $ 7,500 to $ 3,750).
