Tesla's $35,000 Model 3 is only available as a special order

Tesla Model 3 Standard Range dropped from online configurator

The change to the Model 3 pricing options is part of a move by Tesla to simplify its lineup.

Tesla says the changes were motivated by making online ordering more simple as well as responding to market demands. The Model 3 with Standard Plus battery range used to cost US$37,500, plus US$3,000 for Autopilot. While that might seem heavy-handed to some, they also made it cheaper. Deliveries of Model 3 Standard will begin this weekend. Now, the auto will cost $39,500, effectively making Autopilot a $2,000 premium built into the price.

"We think including Autopilot is very important because our data strongly indicates that the chance of an accident is much lower when Autopilot is enabled", the company says.

Lessees interested in a dual-motor Long Range Model 3 can easily find themselves with a $700 per month lease payment. Buyers can choose any Model 3 variant with annual mileage options of 10,000, 12,000 or 15,000.

Tesla is restructuring how it sells the Model 3 since the Standard Plus trim option has been selling on average six times more than the base model auto. (The Model S and Model X can both be leased for 24 months, too.) For all three cars, there's a $695 acquisition fee, and the first month's payment is due when you pick up the vehicle. Lessees will not be able to purchase the auto at the end of the lease period.

United Kingdom takes another step closer to no-deal European Union exit
Cooper's move came a day after MPs failed to reach to find a majority behind any of alternative Brexit proposals Monday night. Brexiteer Tory Sir Bill Cash said trying to go through these stages in one day made it a "reprehensible procedure".

This is because Tesla plans to use those previously leased vehicles in its upcoming ride-hailing network. Customers who want this version from now on won't be able to get it from Tesla's online ordering menu.

MobileSyrup has reached out to Tesla to learn about the current price of the Standard Range and Long-Range Rear-Wheel Drive Model 3s.

And a standard Model 3 costing US$35,000 just became harder for customers to actually order.

The Standard will have a range limited by 10%, and several features from the Standard Plus will be removed via software including Tesla's onboard music streaming service, navigation with live traffic visualization, and heated seats.

In responding a follower on Twitter encouraged Tesla owners to buy a product that covers up a camera over the rear-view mirror of their cars, Musk, 47, confirmed for the first time that the goal of the camera was to record video when owners put their vehicle on the network.
