Tesla launches new $45000 Model 3

Tesla launches new $45000 Model 3

According to Tesla's website, the rear-wheel-drive model has a "mid range" battery that lasts 260 miles - 50 miles less than the "long range" battery in the more expensive Model 3s, which start at $54,000.

The announcement of the midrange model came with no early warning or indication that this model was being added to the lineup, catching Tesla watchers by surprise.

Tesla late on Thursday started accepting orders for a more affordable Model 3 Mid Range sedan for buyers in the United States and Canada.

Their design is pretty great, though, and its battery and charging abilities look impressive considering what's out there. Most notably, the Mate 20 Pro comes with a fingerprint reader under its display that allows for futuristic unlocking.

The only available Model 3 for the previous year has been a long-range version, offered mostly at luxury prices.

There's an extra incentive to order a Tesla now rather than waiting. The performance and long-range versions each have all-wheel-drive and dual motors and battery packs that will go some 310 miles on a full charge.

The Model 3 is a four-door compact sedan that can seat up to "five adults comfortably, and the word comfortably is the key", Musk said. A $3,750 credit will remain starting January 2019, but it will disappear entirely by the end of next year. Tesla says delivery for the new mid-range Model 3 should take six to 10 weeks. GTM has contacted Tesla for clarification.

It is unknown whether Pompeo shared the transcript with the president, but soon after the meeting the president changed his tune. But the president said he was still waiting on the outcome of several investigations before drawing any conclusions.

"As Model 3 production and sales continue to grow rapidly, we've achieved a steady volume in manufacturing capacity, allowing us to diversify our product offering to even more customers", said a Tesla spokesperson. "Our new Mid-Range Battery is being introduced this week in the USA and Canada to better meet the varying range needs of the many customers eager to own Model 3".

Tesla supporters will likely see today's news as a positive development.

While the cheaper version of the auto is significantly lower than the $54,000 base price for the all-wheel-drive version that Tesla has been selling, some bears are honing in on various drawbacks of the model, as well as citing a great level of uncertainty that still surrounds Tesla's first mass-market vehicle, promised at a baseline price of $35,000.
