FAQ

Currently Tesla has three on-line options for the Model 3, Standard Range Plus (240 miles), Long Range Battery All-Wheel Drive (310 miles) and Performance Long Range (310 miles).

Standard Range Plus starts at $39,900.

Long Range AWD starts at $49,900

Performance Long Range starts at $59,900

All the above models come with Autopilot, enables your car to steer, accelerate and brake automatically for other vehicles and pedestrians within its lane, as a standard option. In addition to the above three options Teslas has stated that customers that would like to order a cheaper software-locked Standard Range Plus or Rear-Wheel Drive Long Range Model can do so by either calling Tesla or visiting one of their stores.

The $35,000 Standard Range Model 3 was briefly available on Tesla’s website from February 25th , 2019 to April 11th, 2019. As of April 12th, 2019 Tesla has decided to remove the Standard Range option from their website. The stated reason was, “we have made the decision to simplify our production operations to better optimize cost, minimize complexity and streamline operations.”

Standard Range is still available as a software-limited version of the Standard Range Plus to those customers that either call Tesla or visit one of their stores.

As of May 20th the software-limited range SR+ is available at $35,400.

No, at this point of time Teslas do not drive themselves. A large majority of the fleet do offer Autopilot which assists the driver but are not meant to replace the driver. Owners are expected to pay attention and be ready to take full control of the vehicle at all times.

Full Self Driving is on the roadmap but is not currently offered.

At first I was very nervous and hesitant to try Autopilot. It wasn’t that I didn’t trust the system but it is just one of thew few things you need to get use to coming from an ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicle to an Electric Vehicle. I think by the 3rd drive I started to feel a lot more comfortable and today, almost 4 months after taking delivery there is no second thought on when to active Autopilot.

After having Autopilot and driving with it active you start to look at roads differently. For example in Florida a lot of our exit lanes will split from the far right lane without having a dashed line often times confusing our Teslas. Another thing new drives need to be aware of is the phantom braking where the system believes there is an object in the road. I often experience phantom braking with shadows. A simple light step on the accelerator will return the vehicle to normal functionality without having to reengage autopilot.

If you did not know/realize the Model 3 does not have the speedometer (and other instruments/readings) in front of the driver as most car functions and information are from the center console screen. It does take a little bit of time to get use to the new layout, but within a few days it becomes second nature. I personally love the minimalistic interior of the Model 3 and with my previous car my phone’s GPS was about the same position of the Model 3’s speedometer so almost instantly I was use to center screen.

Yes, the Long Range and the Performance models come with AWD standard. Standard Plus Range models are only offered with RWD.

Long Range with RWD is na option but not online. You must contact Tesla by phone or visit one of their stores.
