The competition to the 2017 Tesla Model 3 should get worried, as the vehicle is both super affordable and super pricey, depending on the features and size of battery chosen. You can pick it up from around $35k, which would put it alongside the Chevrolet Bolt or you can go as high as $100k plus, putting it more in-line with the BMW i8.
The 2017 Tesla Model 3 is going to be competing with both affordable and not so affordable vehicles. When it was introduced to us around one year ago it was said that the starting price would be $35,000 and it would have a range of 215 miles per charge. This sparked 400,000 people to reserve a vehicle at $1,000. The first of the vehicles isn’t rolling out until later on this year, so people have had to wait a long time.
While it may be affordable at $35,000 it seems that if you add on a few of the more premium features you are going to boost that price tag up considerable. Typically to around twice that figure. One YouTube video producer made a comparison of the Tesla Model 3 with the S and added in some premium features. He based the figures on the fact that the premium features would be about the same as those on the Model S and found the price tag rose upwards of $75,000.
This means that we could be looking at a price tag of around $100,000 for the fully loaded version of the 2017 Tesla Model 3. The mid-range comes in at around $50k.
