2017 Tesla Model 3 Sidestepping Nissan Leaf Tackling BMW i3
The Tesla Model 3 is a vehicle that comes in with a price tag of $35k but for the price you do get a whole lot of car. But it seems that people don’t want the entry level cheapest version as many have chosen extras and this would take the price tag more along the lines of the BMW i3 and away from the price of the Nissan Leaf.
Around 90% of people who ordered the Tesla Model 3 have said that they want Supercharger access and 75% said they would go for the biggest battery. 43% said that they wanted a battery upgrade.
So it does look as though there are very few customers who would go for the base version of the Tesla Model 3 and its attractive price tag. 7% of people asked said that they wanted every features and 30% said they would choose at least some of the upgrades.
Bear in mind that adding on extras raises the price tag of the Tesla Model 3 and at the same time it boosts the delivery. Tesla may well want to send out the most expensive vehicles first and this means if you added on all the extras you might get your vehicle before those who went with the entry version.
As strange as it seems the more expensive models of the Tesla Model 3 may also work out cheaper. This is down to the fact that if the company goes over the 200,000 EV mark you will lose the $7,500 tax incentive in the US. So if you buy the more expensive version you should be among the people to get their vehicle first and the incentive will apply. Those waiting for the entry level may lose out on the incentive.
Many people said that they wanted the Autopilot system and some liked the Supercharger access, but what didn’t go down too well was the Ludicrous mode.
So there isn’t going to be too many cheaper version of the Tesla Model 3 coming with a price tag of $35,000. While normally a cheaper price is what draws people in, with the Model 3 this hasn’t been the case.
