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 $


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


Can You Drive A Tesla Model 3 For $78 Per Month?

May 3rd, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

By all accounts, Teslas are technological marvels, safe, dependable, and fun to drive. But cheap? Well, there’s no question that an EV will save you money on fuel and maintenance compared to a legacy vehicle. And a Tesla isn’t a particularly expensive vehicle if your alternative is a BMW, a Mercedes, or an Audi, the brands to which the Californian EV is usually compared


Tesla Gets Creative For Model 3 Customers In Canada

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)


Tesla Model 3 Standard Range — 1st Video Overview

April 21st, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

The base Tesla Model 3 Standard Range recently started getting delivered in the US and expert EV reviewer Alex Dykes ("Alex on Autos") received his personal vehicle just this weekend. Alex gives us a quick tour of the interior and finds that the trim, features, and materials appear to be largely the same as the Standard Range Plus version


Tesla Is Following A Timeline Laid Out Many Months Ago, Yet Critics Are Acting Surprised

March 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

This is a quickie. Sometimes, to set the record straight, quick & clean is the best way to go. I honestly have a hard time determining when Tesla critics are intentionally misleading people and when they are just being idiotic. This past week or so is no exception, but it's hard to believe it was the latter. (You'd have to be really idiotic to so blatantly get the story wrong on at least one of the two big Tesla news items I'm discussing below.)


Tesla FUD: What’s Going On?!? OMG WTFUD?!? #TSLA #Pravduh

March 8th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

It's been a couple months since I last wrote an article, and a ton of stuff has happened in that time, but there haven't been a lot of changes with regards to the Tesla story. The company was generally trucking along, shipping Model 3s, and doing what everyone was expecting it to do


“Never Bet Against Elon Musk”

March 1st, 2019 | by Steve Bakker

That's what one of Elon Musk’s former business partners Peter Thiel said about the man: “Never bet against Elon Musk.” And once more, against all odds, this is proving to be true. In bringing the Model 3’s price tag down to the long awaited mission target of $35,000, Tesla’s Secret Master Plan is being fulfilled. In a veritable "4th down and goal" analogy, Musk has pulled off what is arguably a Hail Mary pass to maintain sales volume, clearing the goal posts by a hair. The Holy Grail of the affordable, profitable, long-range electric car — sought after since GM developed the EV1 in the '90s — is in sight. Tesla will deservedly go down in history as the company that grabbed that brass ring


Tesla Online Sales — Bigger News Than $35,000 Model 3

March 1st, 2019 | by Steve Hanley

Tesla announced yesterday that the $35,000 Model 3 Standard Range is now available for purchase. But that wasn't the biggest news of the day. It will now transition to a 100% online sales and close many of its stores. Franchise dealers should be nervous.
