Tesla's $35,000 Model 3 is only available as a special order
13 April, 2019, 00:18
The model will be equipped with Tesla's Autopilot assisted driving function, the automaker said. The price in Denmark, Finland, and Sweden is equivalent to around €50,000.
Autopilot now comes bundled as a standard feature for less than the prior cost of the option. This will depend on levels of continued demand for the higher end AWD and Performance variants, as well as demand for the SR+ itself.
The long-awaited US$35,000 Tesla Model 3 has been pulled from the company's online configurator and sales site, after just six weeks on sale.
If you look at it one way, Tesla is making a popular add-on feature standard on its Model 3 vehicles.
Tesla is not only trying discourage customers from buying the base $35k Model 3, it wants to make it as easy as possible to upgrade. We're not sure if these stripped-out vehicles with cloth interiors ever existed in the first place, as Tesla says the special-order Standard Range cars will now be Standard Range Plus cars with a software-limited battery that provides a bit less range.
However, unlike other leasing programs, Model 3 customers will not be able to buy their vehicle following the conclusion of the leasing term, as Tesla plans to use these vehicles in its upcoming ride-hailing network in conjunction with full autonomy. Notably, the Standard Plus' price increased to $53,700.
The Standard will have a range limited by 10%, and several features from the Standard Plus will be removed via software including Tesla's onboard music streaming service, navigation with live traffic visualization, and heated seats.
The Model 3 Long Range rear-wheel drive version has also been pulled from the online configurator to "further simplify our line-up", according to Tesla, though it can still be ordered via phone or visiting a dealer. The company warns that customers who choose leasing will not have the option to buy the auto at the end of the term, as the vehicles will be used for Tesla's ride-hailing network. Customers won't have the option to buy the auto at the end of the lease because the company plans to use the vehicles in a forthcoming Tesla ride-hailing network, according to the blog post.
Buyers do have the option to unlock those features at a later date, though, essentially upgrading the auto from Standard Range to Standard Range Plus.
