Although it costs 45 thousand dollars, the head of the company is sure that the car will be cheaper.
Elon Musk spoke about the launch of the new cheap version of the Tesla Model 3, which appeared on the site. According to him, after deducting taxes and at the expense of fuel economy, a car will cost 31 thousand dollars. Two prices are indicated on the company’s website: $45,000 is the regular version and $33.2 thousand is after taxes.
Three versions of the Model 3 are available for purchase: a new, cheaper model with a smaller battery of 418 kilometers and two more expensive models with batteries of 500 kilometers. They cost, taking into account the deduction of taxes, 42.2 and 52.2 thousand dollars.
Tesla rear wheel drive cars do actually work well on snow & ice. We did our traction testing on an ice lake! Dual motor AWD is great, but not required for cold weather. Just don’t use sport/summer tires.
