1k. I hope it is refundable because delivery times are likely to be off.

Let The Teasing Game Begin - Tesla Model 3 Shows Its Silhouette


Quote:
Previewed in a teaser image posted by Tesla Motors, the Model 3 will join the likes of the Model S and Model X from March 31, when its presentation is scheduled.

While the manufacturer has started offering 650 tickets to customers for the reveal event, with info on how to receive one being sent out in an e-mail, most details on the actual car remain in the dark.

What we can tell you is that the new Tesla Model 3 is expected to take the shape of a sedan and to be visually similar to its larger sibling, when viewed from the front, at least. Its range and pricing should be close to the Chevy Bolt EV, but unlike GM's vehicle, which is a subcompact, the Model 3 will be roughly the size of a BMW 3-Series.

Tesla's third addition to its family will use batteries sourced from the Gigafactory, in Nevada, and it's believed to be the first one to ride on the third-generation platform, which might eventually be used on a crossover-like vehicle and even on a new Roadster.

With an estimated range of around 200 miles (320 km) and a starting price of approximately $35,000, the new Tesla Model 3 will open its order books at its launch event. The first deliveries of the electric sedan won't start until late 2017.

I can see the appeal. For $35k or less, you get a car with 200-300+ miles range pure electric that does 0-60 in under 4.0 seconds and seats 4 comfortably. Oh and it's made by Tesla, the same brand that makes those $100k cars that rich people love and the average person drools over. Seems like a great alternative to the typical Camry or even base 3 series.

You know something we don't? Last I heard it was a 65 kWh motor with 225 mile range.

It's $35k before tax credit - assuming you're in California that's $10k off, while credits last. Each manufacture gets an allotment of some 200,000 credits. In theory once those are gone, the credits diminish repeatedly. Current projections put the credits evaporated by Q1 2018. Production/deliveries of the Model three are Q4 2017 - will be tight to get the full discount. But that's all politics and at the whim of lobbyists to extend credits

My hunch - two things may happen: it'll be $35k for an introductory price with up to $15,000 in options/accessories. Or it'll eventually be $35k, introductory price will be a special edition model at $45k and "$35k with incentives" or something to that effect.

Throw in awd, a couple of options (autonomous driving, premium interior), a nice paint an upgraded 70 kWh motor and you'll still be before the heels of a base Model S at around $60,000.

Or the Model S could come down to $60,000 before incentives with the smaller motor. Either way, it's definitely opening up the market for them but I don't think it'll be the floodgate folks are making it out to be. Ultimately, Tesla is still a niche boutique brand who did/continue to do the EV justice. But imagine if they went mainstream, how bad the press would be with a general consumer frustrated at all the hiccups/issues/quality lapses the Model S has had. Not in any fault to the product, teething is normal. Tesla was smart to release slowly, to the wealthy 'techies' whom had the patience and willingness to trouble shoot for the company. The Model 3, intending to be the Model T of the EV world, will need a lot more luck and financial strategy than the Model S, in my opinion.

Forgot to add: if lease rates are right - I'm super interested in leasing one in 2017/2018! Can't wait for the unveil tonight, woo hoo!
