Tesla started delivering its Model 3 cars last night. I really like the clean interior look. This is their $35000 car which actually costs more than that in the real world but you would expect that. Still waiting to actually drive one. I was one of those who put $1000 down on the first day but not quite as much of a cult follower to say if I’m going to actually buy the car, resell it, or get my deposit back.
Elon’s delivery event was disappointing, poorly done with little information. He could use a new webmaster too as the online delivery was a disaster. However – some new information was revealed.
My configuration would be as follows:
Destination Charge: $1200
Big Battery: $9000
Color other than black: $1000
Full Self Driving: $8000
Sales Tax: $5000
Registration / Home Charger / Other : $2000
Fed Tax Credit: -$7500
California Tax Credit: -$2500
I would much rather have a hatchback than a trunk. And wondering about mounting my cell phone as I still want functionality that the screen isn’t going to give me like text, email, and other Android apps.
