And about damn time too. Took them a year to figure out that people want the promised thirty five grand Model 3. See? Ya see? Tesla intentionally sold the Model 3 for $45,000 to make itself rich and then, after a year, sell it for the promised rice.
They’re trying to get a quick return on their investments. While some people fell for the trap, others like me didn’t and I’m glad I didn’t. You see, if you’re sort of a conspiracy theorist like me, you’ll understand that they already had the $35,000 Model 3 ready for production but they deliberately delayed it till Tesla big rigs were satisfied that they’d made a good ROI.
It’s been more than a year, for crying out loud and all they could give us was the most expensive models, the little turds. It’s like saying other life forms don’t exist on this universe. Those people haven’t seen the size and scale of the universe (I believe in extra terrestrial life, if you want to know).
That price point gives you 220 miles of range and very little else. You don’t even get autopilot or anti-crash technology for that price; you’ll have to spend extra to get it but that’s fine with me. Hell, I don’t need autopilot or anti-crash; that’s for lazy people.
I’ll drive a WWII Willy’s Jeep or a Humvee for all I care. It’s all I really need.
If you do buy all the options, then you might as well spend the full $45,000 option. But for $35,000 you get 5 star safety rating. That’s the highest safety rating for any car that auto safety authorities give.
Virtually ALL Tesla cars have a 5 star safety rating, from the cheapest Model 3 to the most expensive Model S, if it’s a Tesla, you know it’s safe AF.
Those things won’t even roll over in a crash.
