Tesla is introducing a lower-priced version of its Model 3 sedan.
The base price will be $45,000; it will cost about $35,000 in California after federal and state tax rebates.
Company - Model - Vehicle - Masses - Building
The company has long promised the Model 3 would be its vehicle for the masses, but it originally focused on building premium versions of the car while it struggled to ramp up factory production.
Tesla is finally offering a less expensive version of its Model 3 electric car.
Company - Orders - Cost - Mid-range - Version
The company has relased and is taking orders for a "lower cost, mid-range" version of its mass-production vehicle, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced Thursday on Twitter. The base price will be $45,000. But in California, it will cost $35,000 after federal and state tax rebates, Musk said.
Tesla expects to begin deliveries in about four months, a company representative said.
Midrange - Version - Model - Motor - Rear-wheel
The new midrange version of the Model 3 has a single motor and rear-wheel drive, and a battery pack that will go around 260 miles on a charge. The performance and long-range versions each have all-wheel-drive and dual motors and battery packs that will go some 310 miles on a full charge.
Musk said Tesla has set up a new web page to take orders for the lower priced Model 3. 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.
