Tesla has made many changes to the composition of its cars lately, and today is doing another: the battery of model 3 has already been discontinued.
The car maker brought the middle class battery to the market in October 2018
This was a compromise to compensate for Tesla's inability to bring the Standard Range Battery Pack that enables consumers to get cheaper option for booking owners hoping to have access to full US federal tax credit. Now, five months later, Tesla finally released the standard model 3 for $ 35,000 and apparently no longer needs the average version.
The car updates your website late on Saturday to remove the option from the online model 3 configurator:
Only two new "Standard Range" and "Standard Range Plus" models are now available along with the Long Range package, which is the main battery option since Model 3 is in production in 2017
The change occurs the planned price increase for Tesla in its entire stock (excluding $ 35,000 Model 3) on Monday.
Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said the price increase was due to the partial reversal of his sales strategy. 19659009] Take Electrek
I've always felt that the Mid Range 3 is a great option, but I guess now is not that much that Standard Range Plus is an option.
If Tesla removes it from the US configurator now, it probably means they stop production and probably will never be an option in other markets, such as Europe and Asia, where only the long-distance battery is now available.
I'm not sure how big a loss it is for people. I think the composition of Model 3 is probably too crowded.
