Tesla’s Model III Goes 320km Per Charge And Costs $35,000...


This is the one we’ve been waiting for. At a more affordable price, Tesla presents his Model III.

I think we’re going to try to do something more radical,” says Elon Musk, creator of Tesla Motors, whose charging stations will power your Tesla for free, forever.  This one, the Model III could be available in 2017, but more likely the middle or end of 2018.  It’s 20% lighter than the Model S and much cheaper.

The $35,000 (USD) price tag slashes the $60,000+ price of the Model S.



Tesla’s Model III Goes 320km Per Charge And Costs $35,000...

It will charge in just over 25 minutes and run 320 kms; Tesla’s goal to build a cheap electric car is coming true at an accelerated pace.

Tesla is attempting to focus attention on the Model S and the new Model X (Tesla’s version of a minivan), because those are the ones you can buy now, but the Model III will be an undisputable game changer.

But what will it cost in Australia? More than double, probably, because of our desperate efforts to protect the old, dying energy industries.

Does it have a heater for -20’C weather?

Well..that sounds reasonable!

Closer to $60k in 2017

How rapid is the recharge

Stop with the Km use miles for America we are not on that metric systen !!!!!!!!!!

Presents ‘it’s’, not his. Teslas is the name of the company, Musk is the name of the guy that owns the company.

Reply

Price looks good but the current model S referenced in article 60k starts at around 140k in Aus

Reply

Why they using km to report range? It’s 198 miles. A piece of deceptive advertising.

Reply

I can’t afford $5,000 for a car….WTF

Reply

Gas has gone up .30 a gallon here since the election. $4.00 gas is my break point. I’ll put in a Wonderwall, use Musk’s new solar shingles and tell Exxon to blow me

Reply

There is a supercharger station here in Effingham.

Reply

$46,590 AU is looking very attractive…and the range means a return trip to work is now possible.

Reply

thats great, but we drive miles here in teh US of A, and 320 of your Euro things anit gonna get me to walmart and back.

Reply

And it has the carbon footprint of an SUV!

Erin speaking of Christmas gifts…. Ha Ha ha

How’s the battery produced? Co2? Heavy metals like Lithium where from? What happens with the used batteries, recycable?

Paul Pod this one is lovely.

Curious how long it takes to charge… That would be good for grocery getting or moderate commutes to work, but you ain’t driving straight through with that thing. Ever…

If I’m gonna spend 30g on something, I’ll want it to get me further than 199 mi on a charge because it takes a bit longer than 5-10min to fill that bitch back up…

Motherfuckers need to stop thinking about how they can monetize shit and actually create something useful.

Tesla figured out how to wirelessly transfer incredible amounts of power back when we had none, zilch, of the same capabilities we do today…

We’re doing it wrong…

Coal powered cars. Like that’s good for the environment ;/

Reply

That’s not very great mileage. I have to say I’m surprised!

Reply

Bait and switch. That price is for a stripped Version. You can’t really get one at that price. If you can get one at all.

Reply

    As a professor, I assume you’re fairly intelligent. Can you think of one car made by any company that doesn’t advertise the stripped down price of their car? Nope, because the all do.

    Reply

    Jason Mac Agreed. But It’s still true, and the price change is quite high in this case. Also, two wrongs don’t make a right. 😉

    Reply

    What would the average going price be with needed options?

    Reply

    we should all be able to jump in one and go, because we have all payed for them in with our TAX DOLLARS

    Reply

    ….like every other car.

    Reply

    Even with upgrades that’s still insanely cheap

    Reply

    Jason Mac Hi prof, spell check

    Reply

    Yes, even with upgraded that’s still insanely cheaper than a $160k P100D or Model X. Gimme a break!

    Reply

The photo is not a model 3. Erica Kane, 90%+ of all non-commercial driving is less than 40km/day. This likely takes care of >95%. Pretty damned good mileage.

Reply

    What model is it? It’s not the model s or x as they are different than the one posted.

    Reply

I’ve never owned a vehicle that got better mileage than that.

Reply

That’s a pretty spiffy III for $35K.

Reply

and the next there will be a family car, where you can take some luggage and the dogs as well….

Reply

    Under the hood is a trunk as well as the back trunk. No big engine means lots more room.

tax payers supporting the rich through rebates

Reply

    There’s a cap on the rebates. What about all the tax payer subsidies to oil and gas?!?!

    Reply

    stupid comparison —-gas is spot price all over the world

    Reply

    Walter Van disparaging remarks don’t make your argument stronger, FYI.

    Reply

    so there are also solar subsides—–is the power made with gas or diesel fuel—–your comparison has no basis since both cars use gas and oil—-or is it nuclear power with nothing to do with the waste! didnt want to hurt your feelings

    Reply

    Remember when the government bailed out GM to the tune of 11.2 billion?

    liberals and gave it to fiat —so 100 wrongs make a right—vote no on all bail outs

Need more charging stations. And charging stations should be solar charged.

Reply

320km = 199 miles. The headline is misleading considering most readers (and the targeted customers) are Americans.

Reply

    Got some data to back up that assertion?

    Reply

    I wonder why the rest of the world thinks that Americans are arrogant and self-absorbed? lol. There is a big world out there, and we all use the metric system, buddy.

    Reply

    Umm Russ, less than 5% of the world uses that old system…. and most electric car sales are in EU not the US… Target market…

    Reply

…and a beautiful looking car to boot. Perfect colour. I’m drooling.

Reply

Maybe a couple of spare batteries in the boot (Trunk for our American friends) should take it further. And the running of the engine should charge the spare batteries. Who knows, it might happen one day.

Reply

    Yup. Beef up the suspention, batteries in the boot (trunk) +back seat (it’s now 2 seater) will increase the range to 1000km. I reckon they will have “all these trick” up their sleeve, to be release in later models.

    Reply

    Roger Bloxham its all been done b4, one of the distance tricks is a small generator on a trailer….. after a while it became clear that the vast majority of peeps dont need long range often enough to warrent it so you dont hear about this sort of thing tho….

Only 35 k looking good

Costs 35000 in what country?

Reply

Karen McGrath this is the car you need … ?

Reply

What is the eco cost of building it in the first place?

Reply

So a cross country trip would take longer than early pioneers in covered wagons. Plus you don’t want your car to die in the middle of nowhere so you better find a place before the batteries get below 30%

Reply

Less than 200 miles

Reply

    Most people do less then 40k a day . So for most it’s plenty

    Reply

500,000 pre sold

Reply

They have yet to build the first 1000 and everyone has coughed up $1000 down payment.

Reply

    Yup I’m betting when if you put your money down by the time it’s made you could make 5 grand easy selling yours when it’s ready!

    Reply

Have you ordered yours yet Philip Redmond

Reply

Nice looking car

Reply

Should use a model 3 photo then. It’s a nice car in its own right. That looks like the Model S.

Reply

So how much does my electric bill go up for 320km?

Reply

    Not a lot. Tesla charge points are free. A lot cheaper than petrol or diesel. Is that all you care about?

    Reply

    Matt Jordan no points where I live so it’s not free for me and no solar or wind for me so it’s not a choice yet I get power from coal burning plant. You don’t get it that’s ok . But try and understand my dilemma. I do care you have no idea. Sorry that’s all the time I’ll give ya

    Reply

    Ok, no matter. Its still 50% more efficient to get electricity to power your car than it is to use petrol or diesel.

WATCH the DOC who killed the electric car from around 1974

Reply

    ‘who killed the electric car’ is from the 2006, and referred mostly to the 1990s.

    Reply

    thanks … brain fart for me

    Reply

    Why?
    Are you suggesting electric car technology is somehow going to be supressed?

    Reply

    no suggestions…. just observations, however from the amount of suppressed technology for profit or economic growth/change reasons who really knows?

    Reply

    Electric car has been suppressed and inventors killed for the last 50 to 100 years. I think this will come out at some point when it’s safe. My dad knew some people who lost their lives

I m just back from Hongkong,no joke one car on 15 is a Tesla there…

Reply

These will have a range of 32km in the UK, cause everyone has to floor their cars everywhere!

Reply

And you have a picture of early Model S… Why?

Reply

Shaleem Hosein ; almost affordable

Reply

Yeah, I priced one of these out in Canadian dollars and MB tax, etc. $51K. I believe they will sell very well. A little out of my price range, for now.

Reply

well I am 150 miles from sometimes I have to drive there and then straight back… can’t wait for a recharge .. guess this isn’t the car i need yet

Reply

I heard that they’re very popular and they actually ran out of stock

Reply

Model 3 has fins and they’re smaller

Reply

very nice. I think I want one.

Reply

It’s beautiful! I want it!

Reply

OH MY!!!!!! just my style!!! would love to see the mileage go up a bit though so you could make it to Los Angeles on 2 charges though. That way you could drive 500 miles…stop at a motel, charge your car while you sleep and then take off again in the morning. Charging stations in every town would be nice too. That mileage on a charge is really good for running around town. I love the way it looks.

Reply

when this can do 1,000 km+ then I may think about it. Until then, I shall keep on driving my cheap Auto gas (LPG) car!

Reply

Var litt glissen….

Sian Tranter, Ali was mentioning about cars. This isn’t launched yet, but worth considering (and there is a FREE charging point at Sarn services)

Reply

It’s pretty good but for Europeans, the Renault Zoe is more affordable and has a 255km range.

Reply

where in north america can you go that fast? what a waste of tech!

Reply

Use a model 3 photo then.

Reply

We’ll wait for the even cheaper model, thanks.

Reply

Its also paid for almost entirely with taxpayer money already….

Reply

tylko 35,000$……………

Reply

Will it be available in Australia?

Reply

Nice, until you see how bad they are in a wreck and the Lithium batteries catch on fire! Tesla recommends Firefighters cut into the side of the car below the door to cut one of two main power cables and have at least 3000 gallons to cool the batteries that are burning. They then recommend that it sit undisturbed at the crash site for 48 hours to make sure the batteries don’t reignite. Oh, I forgot to mention that they warn about the extremely toxic smoke created as the batteries burn. I am all in favor of these cars but there is a dark side. Google it

Have Mr. Wonderful send me one up here in Central Maine and put his money where his mouth is.

Why go metric with distance and US with cost?

Reply

What? Give this asshole more money for more stupid, fake-ass bullshit videos of his car going to ‘outer space’? Ok.
