The Tesla said on Thursday (28) the entry version of Model 3 , announced as an electric car for the masses, is available for order at a price of 35,000 US dollars, with delivery promised for within a month.
Released in 2017 as the cheapest car from the American automaker, Model 3 finally gets its version more into account. In the beginning, the company sold only versions of more than US $ 49 thousand, and the intermediate option of US $ 45 thousand arrived only in 2018 .
The announcement fits in with the vision of Tesla’s founder and chief, Elon Musk , who has promoted a more affordable electric car as part of his idea to keep motorists away from gas-powered vehicles.
To make it less expensive, Tesla said it will only be sold over the Internet.
“To achieve these prices while remaining financially sustainable, Tesla is changing sales worldwide just for the internet,” the company said in a statement.
The Model 3 “standard” has a longer range of 350 km before recharging. Its specifications include a top speed of 208 km per hour and an acceleration of 0-96 km / h in 5.6 seconds.
“Although its cost is lower, it was designed to achieve the same perfect five-star safety rating as the longer-range version,” said Tesla.
Tesla also introduced a Model 3 Standard Range Plus, which offers 386 km of range, a more powerful traction unit and premium interior features for a price of $ 37,000.
