Tesla Recalibrates Model 3 Pricing & Adds Long Range Option For Aussie Customers

July 17th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Tesla just rolled out a series of updates to the Model 3 configurator that lowered prices across the board in many countries. The new change was accompanied by a flip flop on the base color of all of Tesla's vehicles — from black to "pearl white." It is now an extra $750 to add black but no extra charge to choose white. Grey ("midnight silver metallic") and blue ("deep blue metallic") cost $1000 and red costs $


Shocker: Tesla Model 3 vs. Honda Civic — 15 Cost Comparisons Over 5 Years

June 14th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

When I got started on this analysis, I thought, "Well, looks like we finally have a car that is going to come out with a lower 5 year cost than a Tesla Model 3." Nonetheless, I was super curious to see the results and see how close the Model 3 came to different Civic trims. I did not expect that the Model 3 would beat the Civic on cost in several scenarios. Does it? Does it, really


Tesla Model 3 Cheaper Than Honda Accord … Gas Car Dealers In Norway Suffering … New BYD Electric Vehicles — #CleanTechnica Top 20

June 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The 20 most popular CleanTechnica articles of May are in a list below. First, though, I'll highlight some of my favorites. Well, the #1 story on the top 20 is also perhaps my favorite, but I wrote it, so I'm biased. It is a cost comparison between the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus and several Honda Accord trims. Guess who wins


The Chinese Tesla Model 3 “Super Margin” (Forecast)

June 3rd, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

Price policy for a product is a cross between fairness and what the market can bear. If you are too nice to your customers, your shareholders will not be happy. If you squeeze every last penny out of your customers, they will start to resent doing business with you. Beside these matters, there is the issue of competitive pricing. What is the price of competing products? Established products can charge a premium, new products often have to show a price incentive

May 31st, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Tesla has just launched pricing and ordering for the Tesla Model 3 that will be made in the Shanghai Gigafactory. The 328,000 RMB ($47,475) price for the Standard Range Plus is before local incentives, and crushes fossil rivals in the same class, the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class (also both locally made in China)


Tesla Model 3 Lease vs. Loan In UK, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, & China

May 5th, 2019 | by Vijay Govindan

For this piece, I will use the information on Tesla’s website to determine if paying cash, taking a loan, or leasing is the best option if you want a Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus (SR+). The twist here is I did these calculations for Switzerland, Norway, the Netherlands, China, and the UK. These were some of the most popular markets for Tesla in Q1 2019. I added in the UK, since it has been suffering for 3 years and deserves some attention


Tesla Model 3 Cheaper Than Honda Accord — 15 Cost Comparisons [Updated]

May 4th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently published some cost comparisons between the Tesla Model 3 and various Honda Accord trims. As I implied at the time, these models shouldn't even be in the same discussion since the Model 3 is a much better vehicle (safer, quicker, more advanced tech, better handling), but the fact is that they do compare when it comes to 5 year cost of ownership. However, when I published the previous comparisons, I didn't include the cost of interest if you took out an auto loan to finance the purchase


Tesla Model 3 vs. Toyota Camry — 15 Cost Scenarios

May 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I've got another report here comparing the Tesla Model 3 to a top selling car in the USA.The Model 3 was the 5th best selling car in the USA in the second half of 2018, the 11th best in all of 2018, and the 13th best in the first quarter of 2019. The Toyota Camry was the top selling car in the USA in 2018 and has long been at or near the top of the list


Breaking! Tesla Slashes Leasing Costs On Model 3 — $399 A Month!

May 3rd, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

I haven't seen an announcement, but noticed on Twitter people talking about a $399 per month lease on a Tesla Model 3! Comparing the old deal to the new deal, the down payment required has gone up by $1,500, from $3,000 to $4,500, but the monthly payment has gone down from $504 a month to $399 a month. That more than makes up for the higher down payment — $105 times 36 months is $3,780, and subtracting the $1,500 increase in down payment brings you to $2,280 in savings)

May 2nd, 2019 | by Steve Hanley

Tesla has created a new base Model 3 for the Canadian market. The standard range car is priced at $44,999, just low enough to take advantage of the new iZEV rebate that went into effect on May 1.


Tesla Model 3 vs. Honda Accord — 7 Scenarios

April 25th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Reporting on the Tesla Model 3 is weird. It's a car that can smoke a BMW M3 on the track yet is cost competitive — or even cheaper than — a Toyota Camry or Honda Accord (seriously)
