All Tesla cars – apart from the $ 35,000 Model 3 – will now be compatible with Autopilot, according to a blog post from the company today, which means that the price of the base versions of the cars will rise. The $ 35,000 Model 3 will no longer be available, and some features, including heated seats, will be disabled.
Cars that meet the Autopilot standard will cost more than the original foundations – although the cost would be less than the option. “For example, Model 3 Standard Plus and $ 37,500 cost, plus $ 3,000 for the Autopilot option,“ says Tesla job. “It now costs $ 39,500, with Autopilot included.” That's $ 1
This price change does not apply to the $ 35,000 Model 3 with Standard Range battery, which consumers will still be able to buy without Autopilot, according to a spokesman. This vehicle, however, is no longer offered on the website – the cheapest online option is the Standard Plus Standard Model. The $ 35,000 Model 3 software will be limited to software to 220 miles, and its music streaming service, navigation and heated seating will be disabled. But because it is disabled by software, drivers can upgrade to Standard Plus whenever they want, the company says. Tesla will begin delivering the Model Standard 3 this weekend, according to the post.
There was $ 35,000 as a basic price for the Model 3 line since it was announced in 2016. But Tesla first added a version of the car at a higher price to production, with the Chief Executive Elon Musk said in 2018 that Tesla would “die” if he sold the original too soon. Musk introduced the $ 35,000 Model 3 in February, and Tesla then started taking orders online for the car.
Tesla says that six times people bought the Model 3 Standard Plus, which has a range of 240 miles, compared to the Model 3 Standard Range. So the Model Standard 3 will only be available if customers visit Tesla or visit the Tesla shop. Anyone who bought the Standard Plus but who has a cheaper car can get more experience of the Model Standard 3 limits and get a refund.
Rapid Drive 3 Rear Model Model Wheels will only be available by phone and in stores, the company was announced. “We are making these changes to ensure that our online ordering process focuses exclusively on the three most wanted Model 3 customers,” the company says in its job.
Recently, Tesla Autopilot made two packages: allows automatic steering on highway and traffic cruise control, and Self-Drive Total. Self-Drive includes the “Navigate on Autopilot” element which indicates and makes lane changes, as well as highway junction navigation. The regular package is now standard with all Tesla cars.
Also, customers will now be able to lease Model 3, although they will not be able to buy it when the lease is set up – Tesla plans that “use those vehicles in a Tesla tour compile network. , ”Says the job. To be clear, there is still no such network. But Tesla has had a misfortune over the past month because of the plan for autonomous taxi fleets. A week ago, Musk pointed out that there was a camera in the Model 3 so that the cars could be used as taxis. “It's when we start competing with Uber / Lyft,” he said at the time .
