Tesla needs to show what the non-premium interior of the Model 3 will look like before we have hopes of seeing Model 3's 35,000 dollar version. Torque News thinks there is no question that Tesla can build nice cars, what matters can it build nice cars like Model 3 at $35,000 dollar price point?
So what should we look for? Tesla needs to tells us whether the 35K Model 3 will have cloth seats or leather seats. seats with electrics or without electrics. Will the interior have the same screen or an AM/FM radio with toggle switches?
Once we hear the answers of these questions, we will know that the Model 3 Tesla at 35K price point is near.
"The $35,000 price was misleading, unfortunately, but that seems to be the way cars are pitched," wrote one Tesla enthusiast named David, in Tesla Model 3 Owners Worldwide group on Facebook. "You cannot get any vehicle out of the door for the sticker price. They have to make profit for a few quarters before making a car with fewer features, the cheaper one will come," he added. No wonder 24% of Tesla Model 3 orders have been canceled.
I would expect the 35K Tesla Model 3 will have cloth seats. Although, usually seats are extra. Everyone knows that.
It will not have wood vent (plastic). It will have less speakers and metal roof above the driver. The 35,000 dollar Model will probably keep the same UI.
What else can Tesla do to lower the price of the Model 3. There is nothing wrong with roll-up windows. That would lower the price. The company can also produce some cars in Mexico. I know this would be painful to take some many jobs to Mexico, unless they find a way to be more cost-effective in the United States.
