    I am confused about the glass roof options.

    Premium Upgrades Package – $5,000 Upgraded interior with additional features and premium materials.
    includes:

    • Tinted glass roof with ultraviolet and infrared protection

    But the base $35,000 model comes with

    Which features come standard with Model 3 for $35,000?
    Model 3 is designed to be the safest car in its class, with 220 miles of range, and zero to 60 mph acceleration in 5.6 seconds. Standard features also include full self-driving hardware, Supercharging capability, a rear glass roof, a 15” touchscreen display, Wi-Fi and LTE internet connectivity, free over-the air software updates, full LED lighting, and an 8-year, 100,000 mile battery warranty.


    I am confused about what the difference between the glass roof and rear glass roof. Does anyone have a picture?

    No pic but basically the front seats will have a solid roof without this. The rear passengers will have the glass roof regardless because of the way the designed that.

    Does that mean glass roof is not tinted for base option either?

    Both models come with the same rear glass roof (which I believe is tinted). The premium package comes with a tinted front glass roof. Without the premium package, you get a metal front roof.

    If you mean a cover, that's not an option at all.

    there are 3 pieces of glass, front windshield, middle piece(above drivers head), back/rear glass

    what would be metal is the middle piece above the drivers head.

    there does that look to be a sunroof/moonroof/panoroof in any of the options

    Premium should really say "Full glass roof", to show the differences in non premium "rear glass roof"

    That's called a panoramic roof in Tesla parlance. I believe it's been confirmed in the past, but no information about it has been released recently.

    My take from the info released is that there is not a pano roof. The idea is to keep things simple for manufacturing.

    I hear yea..but this is a reason I did not buy. Range Rover évoque. Beautiful roof...but did not open. I like air when I drive.

    Sunroofs have been around for 50 years...so the manufacturing of them is pretty well established. I realize I am in the minority.,but def should be an option.

    I don't "know" - I "believe." From the pictures I've seen it looks tinted (or some sort of UV protection) and it wouldn't make sense to have it look differently from the front one.
