The 'Cheap' $35,000 Tesla Model 3 Is No More


CNN reports Tesla has raised the price of its least-expensive Model 3 sedan from $35,000 to $35,400. The $400 price increase is relatively small. However, Tesla used to tout the Model 3's $35,000 starting price as the fulfillment of a long-term goal to develop affordable models. In February, the company began allowing customers to order the $35,000 Model 3, known as the standard-range trim. Less than two months, later it removed the standard-range trim from its online-order page. Tesla said demand for the standard-range trim was much lower than that for the standard-range-plus trim, which starts at $39,900.

The start of standard-range Model 3 deliveries is huge news for Tesla, but the carmaker hasn't publicly celebrated the achievement.

  • Tesla Ups Price On $35,000 Model 3 And Makes It Hard To Buy

    After dropping the price of their Model 3 car, Tesla has both upped the price and is making the car harder to buy. Automotive News reports that the Model 3 electric car, with the 'Standard Plus battery range,' used to cost $37,500, plus $3,000 for Autopilot. The new price is $39,500 with Autopilot included. Model 3 deliveries start this weekend, but now Tesla is removing the Model 3 from their online menu. Automotive News explains "Between the cost cuts, waning demand for its vehicles and now making the $35,000 Model 3 much harder to buy, the company is now quietly realizing it has to play by the same rules as every other automaker." If a customer wants to purchase the Model 3, now they have to call Tesla or visit a remaining brick and mortar store. If customers lease the car, they won't have the option to buy it until the end of the lease.
