Tesla has officially unveiled the Model 3 - which is going to be what would be considered more "budget" and the less upscale version of Tesla.


To sum it up, a $35,000 entry-level Tesla Model 3 will get you:

  • At least 215 miles per charge
  • 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds
  • Supercharging
  • Front and rear trunks
  • Enough interior room for five adults
  • Autopilot hardware

What are your thoughts on this? I think this is going to set a new standard in the automotive industry, and can definitely see high demand for this as it is inevitably going to be the best value available for that price range.

Finally something for the masses, well at least a larger segment of the monetarily challenged.


Looks good.  I wonder about that full windshield that goes nearly to the trunk, seems like an expensive replacement part.


I'll never by a Tesla until there understand co-generation and why it makes sense on board.  Batteries are toxic, heavy, highly dangerous, etc.   Reducing batteries would be good for everyone... Reducing, not eliminating.


Nice vehicles though and shaking up tired old automotive sector.

I do not think that 35k is a decent price for the majority of users. I would rather go with smaller city cars for a price of maximum 10k, but I do not think that is possible within 10 years. Look at the Japan market and the so called Kei Car, you can find them as low as 1k usd. If that could be done with electric cars, that would really give them a boost.

Is this relative / same Kei car concept / term you are speaking of?

Those are neato.  We don't see those in the US.  Some of those look fairly mature and larger.


What would one find for $1k USD?
