Note: The prices shown here are valid until 18 March. Tesla has announced plans to increase vehicle prices by around 3% on average worldwide. … [However,] there will be no price increase of $ 35,000 model 3. The price increases apply only to the more expensive variants. "So if you are in the market for a model 3, this handy guide can help ̵
Tesla's Announced Standard Range and Surprising Standard Announcement Range Plus Model 3 also introduced the introduction of two new interior trim levels, previously all models came with premium interiors, with Tesla's soft synthetic seat material, heated seats for all five residents, and a 14-speaker premium sound system, as well as other features. had to choose an interior trim level, it was pretty easy to build your model 3: Choose a battery size, choose colors, choose if you want Enhanced Autopilot.
With the addition of the Standard Range Model 3, there are now three interior trim levels, six battery and performance levels, five exterior colors, two interior colors and two wheel styles to choose from. Popular features are not available on any interior trimmer, and it is easy to increase p the rice on a standard selection model 3 to well over $ 40,000.
To make it easier, we break down the features that come with each interior trim, showing which interior is available with each performance level in the car.
Standard interior model 3 comes with Tesla's minimalist interior style, but not much else. We have not yet seen and felt the cloth seats in standard trim, so we cannot comment on the quality of the materials used.
For just $ 2,000 more, partial premiums will likely entice many buyers. Tesla adds its soft synthetic leather material and heated seats, which are 12-way adjustable.
Meanwhile, the premium interior has an exclusive hold on the Tesla satellite card and a navigation system that uses live traffic data, along with its 14-speaker audio system, Internet streaming in the internet, heated back seats and several other features.
Model 3 buyers cannot mix and match interiors with battery sizes though – Each battery size conforms to a particular interior trim. If you want the premium interior, you have no choice but to release at least an additional $ 5000 for the Mid Range battery.
Take a look at the table below which shows which internal trim is available with each battery size and the performance available on each level. [Reminder: prices shown below, excluding the base model, are scheduled to rise approximately 3% on Monday.]
Finally, there are five different options to choose from. These include paint colors, wheel styles, interior colors, autopilot and full self driving. The latter two can be added to any of the vehicles.
Here it is possible to add up to $ 13,000 in options to a model 3. When you factor in the Tesla's $ 1200 travel tax, it is possible to turn on the $ 37,000 Model 3 Standard Plus into a vehicle that costs $ 51,200 before tax.
With the price reduction for new model 3s, it will be tempting for many to cross shop used with new cars. Looking at the value of a used model 3, one has to keep options such as interior trim and autopilot in mind – Tesla's changes in autopilot features mean older cars can provide a better value depending on the exact features that are important to you.
