    Did the broken windows on CyberTruck cause more publicity?

    suggesting it was done for the exact above reasons :-)

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    Just from my perspective if there is any upgrades in the future it would be a pleasant surprise, but I'm not entirely sure the few that have gone for the 150kW version are buying hoping that will happen, as it probably just as likely won't. Those that want the standard longer range are buying...

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    Good point, it could also work in reverse that so small is the market why not let them upgrade, as disruption to main target sales is negligable? I potter about Vancouver/Deep Cove/Horseshoe Bay then occasionally Squamish and Whistler and Vancouver Island,150km is fine for me and gets me into a...

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    Thanks, be cool to hear/read of anyone with this unicorn 150km version has indeed exceeded 150km in actual range. My S75 AP1 RWD (now sold to move here from Europe) had 225miles range normally, but on a really sunny day and cruising behind trucks etc driving really conservatively managed, once...

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    Yes did notice that, so its just Tesla new way of describing their capacities via range, lol what's the 150km version called short range :-)

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    Thanks. So in theory if capped to 39% charge in very good weather and Granny driving you could exceed 150km range? Broadly correct??

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    It's rated range so same as battery capacity. That is to say 150km in summer and less in winter. Thats interesting, if I hear you right then why didn't Tesla give a Kw rating (thus mileage dependant on weather etc) instead of the 150Km (93 miles) range, implying guaranteed 150km whatever the...

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    Exactly and if my rough maths is correct $44,995 plus 12% Tax minus the $8K rebates leaves about an out the door price around $42,500 very roughly speaking. Plus I'm prepared to take the risk of future upgrade paths, if appropriate and needed if they do become available, say 2-3 years down the...

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    I'm going to speak to the local Vancouver dealer and pick this up, see what I can do I'm back thinking this will be just ideal for my use and needs, and wallet :-)

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    Like others have mentioned the SR- could be just the answer to gain a M3 and keeping a range that suits my daily needs (downtown Vancouver) After incentives the price is attractive, to me, and gets me in a M3 at the cheapest purchase point. I am still considering this version and it is a...

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    I'd like to know also as I am still tempted, but do see the arguments against I'd be hoping for a future battery/range unlock option in a year or so.

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    New Mini e range reported to be 160km, similar price after incentives of 150km Model 3 ;-)
  13. Dan43

    Model 3 Standard Range (Canada) Range: 150km

    I've thought about this 150km version, mainly due to small range requirements and $10K savings, after TAX/rebates I think it comes in at $41,488 (if maths are correct) or $51,488 for the SR+ version.

    UK used Tesla Marketplace

    For the UK try Richard Symons in Hampshire, totally on the case and a great selection of used vehicles. Google his site, highly recommended. R Symons Ltd

    Are Canadians still getting Model 3s right now?

    Same here, I was told the finance can match the same length of time I have left on my VISA Credit Card, so 2/3 years, with large deposit, and this would secure finance? How true this is I don't know. I was told to go through the finance but a refund will be given if refused, taking 10 working...
