Tesla Model 3 Is Not Going To Get A Free Supercharger
Tesla Model 3 might have been the cheapest vehicle to be introduced by the company, but there are ways that it is going to ask you to spend more, such as when you’re making an investment with a Supercharger.
Supercharger For Tesla Model 3 Is Going To Cost You $2,500 For The Upgrade
Elon Musk has finally laid the issue to rest concerning the Supercharger for your Tesla Model 3. Model S and X are sold with Supercharger access built-in the price of the vehicles, while the original lower-end Model S’s (the 40 and 60kWh variants) still require a $2,500 upgrade to enable Supercharging.
As for the price tag and features of Tesla Model 3, the vehicle carries a $35,000 tag and the base model can travel from 0-60mph in just 6 seconds. Additionally, the car will be able to deliver a minimum of 215 miles of range on a single charge, but if you’re planning a longer road trip then you will have to invest the $2,500 Supercharger.
Despite the fact that what the company is claiming is rather bold, CEO Elon Musk states that consumers will not be able to find a better than for $35,000, and according to the executive, it also happens to be the safest car in the world right now. All Model 3 cars will include support for Tesla’s high-speed Supercharging network, and by the end of 2017 when deliveries start commencing, Tesla states that it will have a total of 7,200 Superchargers, double the number available today.
There are features that have been ported from Model S to Tesla Model 3, and they happen to be the rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions, along with a 15-inch landscape touchscreen inside. The 15 inch touchscreen is a small downgrade as opposed to the 17 inch touchscreen that came with Model S and X. The Autopilot hardware is standard, and all safety features will be active automatically. Since it has been targeted to the masses, Musk states that it will easily be able to accommodate five adults.
During the announcement of Tesla Model 3 (if you want to relive it, we have provided a link for you right below), Elon Musk displayed his gratitude for consumers who purchased the Model S and Model X, since it provided the company with the necessary amount of funding to mass produce the affordable vehicle.
