Tesla launches new $45000 Model 3

Cheaper’ Tesla Model 3 nowhere near $35K promised

The automaker is replacing the long-range battery in the rear-wheel-drive version of the compact sedan that retailed for $49,000 with a mid-range battery that drops the starting price to $45,000 and the range from 310 miles to 260 miles.

However, Tesla tsla is inching toward its target price for the Model 3.

What will arrive in as little as six weeks, and be available in the USA and Canada, is called the Model 3 Mid Range.

Tesla is finally offering a less expensive version of its Model 3 electric vehicle. On Thursday, CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce a new, mid-range version of the Model 3 that costs $35,000-after federal and state tax rebates. Early next year, Tesla said. The long-range rear-wheel-drive vehicle will be available "off menu" for several days.

But if you still want to hold out for an even cheaper Tesla, the company has promised a base model that will cost $35,000 sometime in 2019.

This has been achieved by moving the front seats forward since there is not engine taking up space between the front wheels thus ensuring best-in-class front and rear-seat legroom.

Until today, there's been two versions of the Model 3 available.

The surprise announcement, delivered via tweet to Musk's 23 million followers, comes as Tesla seeks to steer attention away from a chaotic period in which Musk battled with critics, smoked marijuana during an interview and pledged that he had the money to take Tesla private - a promise for which he was sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and which he recently settled.

"True cost of ownership is closer to $31k after gas savings", Musk claimed. While he has yet to deliver on that sticker price two and a half years later, demand has been strong, with sales rivaling some of the top-selling passenger cars in the U.S. last quarter. CEO Elon Musk recently noted that focusing on the cheaper auto first would cause Tesla to "die," because it's not profitable to make. On that page, customers can choose one of three versions of the Model 3 - the top-of-the-line performance version, the long-range battery one, and the new midrange battery variant.
