Shifting all sales online, combined with other ongoing cost efficiencies, will enable us to lower all vehicle prices by about 6% on average, allowing us to achieve the $35,000 Model 3 price point earlier than we expected. Over the next few months, we will be winding down many of our stores,"
* basic model interior has cloth seats and paired down amenities compared to current model 3
* Looks like autopilot costs $3000 over base
* Full Self-Driving Capability (on-ramp to off-ramp highway driving, autopark and summor your car in a parking lot) is another $5000 over basic autopilot
* Coming this year: ability to "Recognize and respond to traffic lights and stop signs." and "Automatic driving on city streets."
We had an all time record snowfall in February and it's been an intense winter.
EDIT: I realize they have an all wheel drive option but it's 10k more than the 35k option putting it in a luxury market. Not many Americans can responsibly afford a 45k car.
Ground clearance is another issue in itself, however. I've often wondered how often this becomes an issue in Tesla vehicles.
And then there is the falcon wings: any experiences with snow on the roof while opening the doors?
I've also had ice on the charging port that I had to chip off before it would open. I now believe they have added some sort of heating through a software update.
I wouldn't want more clearance on my Model 3 since I'm sure it would reduce the range and practically speaking, I just use it to commute.
From reviews, the Model 3 AWD is phenomenal for driving on snow and ice.
This is terribly misleading to include as a discount in "price after est savings"
Negative part of their loan: they refused to cover the tax with the loan, which has not been my experience through any other car purchase. This means you must cover the down payment plus full tax amount when you pick up. They never told me that until the night before I went to pick it up.
If I had to do it again, I would have got a loan through a credit union.
I think that Tesla know enough about UTC and have a slick enough website that they could get the time right for people outside Silicon Valley, who knows people in Timbuktu could be part of the grand reveal too.
2:03 and no indication of anything different on that page, but I can go to the Model 3 page and click on "Order Now"... is that the thing?
