  • Tesla Model 3 Standard Range dropped from online configurator

If you look at it another, the company is raising prices. In Germany, Tesla is charging a base price of 44,500 euros (plus a handling fee of 980 euros) for this version, which offers a WLTP range of 415 km.

The Model 3 Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive will also only be available over the phone and through stores, the company announced. Other trimmed features will include range limited to 220 miles via software, loss of music streaming service, and no navigation feature.

The company adds anyone who decides to software-limit a Standard Range Plus to Standard Range specification can do so (at any time) and receive a refund for the difference in costs.

Tesla said its customers in the United States would be able to lease any Model 3 variant for a small down payment and monthly payments thereafter, but they will not have the option to buy the vehicle at the end of the lease. As a result, the price of the $37,500 Standard Plus Model 3 is going up to $39,500.

It hasn't even been two months since Tesla unveiled the long-awaited $35,000 Model 3, but it's already been removed from the online configurator, relegating it to off-menu ordering, like a weird Jamba Juice smoothie. Customers in the U.S. can choose from 10,000, 12,000 and 15,000 mile annual usage options, depending on your driving needs and budget. Yes, these are the same stores that the EV company announced it was scaling back when it first started selling the low-priced Model 3.

Pochettino: ‘difficult’ for Kane to play for Tottenham again this season

The good news for Standard Range Model 3 buyers is that they will now get synthetic leather upholstery and power seats that their cars were not expected to have.

The changes were being made "to simplify vehicle choices and make Autopilot more affordable", the post said.

In addition to that news, Autopilot was announced as standard across the Tesla lineup. The base Model 3 will be deprived of heated seats.

Every Telsa Model 3 will come with Auto-pilot as standard. The same applies with the Model X midsize crossover, which can be had for $120,900 if you go on Tesla's website today.

Also, customers will now be able to lease a Model 3, though they won't be able to buy it when the lease is up - Tesla plans "to use those vehicles in the Tesla ride-hailing network", the post says.
