    Hi gang,

    I've created a chart to try and outline what I think the costs will be for each Model 3 offering. My gut tells me the Model 3 will run with a 45, 60, and 75 kWh battery as the 3 models, with all the batteries being 75s with the ability to upgrade. I put this together to try and see if getting a Model 3 specced to where I would want it would be better than getting a Model S 60 today. I've made some tweaks to the price of the options based on Elon's feedback and where I think Tesla will price each component.

    I don't think there's going to be a roof option since the Model 3 will have that big glass overhead.

    We know from an unveiling ride video that there will be metal, fixed glass, and opening glass roof options.

    Also remember that Elon said he expected an average selling price of $42,000 for a Model 3.

    Using your figures, that would be a base M3 + 2-3 options or a stripped 60kWH model.

    Here's a quote from Elon for you to ponder...
    The question asked refered to 75 kWh so it's up to you if you want to interpret 75 as being on the highest end or simply a response to the question.Obviously with many people buying the base model it will drag the average down but what is the true high end?

    There could also be tow package and headliner color options too.

    D option will likely be included in the battery upgraded 3 price.

    I also think the base model will be 55kWh @ 215 miles. Upgraded battery as 75kWh @ 300 miles seems appropriate.

    My guess is a 55, 65 and 75 for the battery with the 75 being strictly P75D not M3 75D at first. The 55 may even unlock to 65 as more people could afford it during their length of ownership.

    What's decor?
    You forgot towing and roof options.
    Also, I'd be very surprised if a spoiler were ever offered as an option for a Tesla.

    I would also suspect that super charging, along with dual motors, will be offered as part of one of the larger battery options.

    The spoiler is only available on P models as the pic indicates.

    I personally don't like the appearance of it and definitely wouldn't pay $1000 for it.

    I sure hope your numbers are high, especially for the P model. I'm ready to pay $60-70K for it, but over $100k is ludicrous (pun intended). I look at it this way. Base Model S is $66K. Fully loaded S before the P100DL was close to $140K I believe, but now is $160K. Worst case then, 160/66 = ~2.42. So if you use the same ratio, $35K * 2.42 = $84.7K. Still seems high, but probably more reasonable that $105K.

    I want the most spec'd out model and the estimated loan payments are already starting to make me tight with my money.

    Did you forget Dual Motor/AWD, or is that The D?

    I agree, I think all his numbers are on the high side. This is to be a car to be within reach of the masses, and I don't think it comes across that way with pricing like that.

    If these price estimates are anywhere near close, I can hear the sound of hundreds of thousands of Model-3 pre-orders being cancelled. Including my own! I will just wait two years and buy a used one after the sucker who paid these absurd prices realizes just how big of a depreciation hit they are going to eat.

    The D means something completely different 'round my parts (pun intended). ;)
