Tesla Model 3 Standard Range

Last Call To Order A Tesla For 2018 … Or Should You Wait For The…

Sometimes I feel like the boy who cried wolf. On October 12, I wrote an article that you should order a Tesla Model 3 by October 15 or you wouldn’t be guaranteed delivery by year end. Then, on November 11, I wrote about 5 options to still get a Tesla in 2018. Tesla didn’t want that to be the end of the story.

Revisiting The Elusive $35,000 Tesla Model 3

If the base Tesla Model 3 has a gender, it’s likely female, because the car is as elusive as Botticelli’s painting of Venus. Don’t take me wrong.

It has altered the automotive manufacturing mindset and recast what’s possible in the clean energy space.

I’ll compare the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range to all the leaders in the midsize market today. The short story, as you’ll see if you go through it all, is that the much quicker, safer, and more luxurious Tesla Model 3 can be cost-competitive with the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Kia Optima, and Chevy Malibu.
