Long Range RWD cost $49k, not $44k?

    When Elon Musk said Long Range version based at $44k while Standard version based at $35k during the delivery event. Today looking at the Tesla Model 3 delivery estimate "First Production 310-mile range with Rear Wheel Drive" cost $49,000.

    Did I miss something?

    $35k + $9000 (Long Range) + $5000 (Premium Package), the extra $5000 seems to be a required Premium package with an order for 310-mile range with Rear Wheel Drive? Sorry if this is a repost.

    The first production runs are all long range premium versions... $49k

    If you want it without the premium package then you'd have to wait.

    Yes, for now they all come with the Premium Package. They will be unbundled in the future.

    Lol, I spend way too much time on this board.

    Also, Model 3 Reservations FAQ says that non-premium upgrades will be available in Fall 2017.

    What may be confusing you -- and me -- is that the Model 3 estimator doesn't show an estimated delivery if you choose the 310 battery with base interior. There is an estimated timeframe for the base $35,000 model, so does that mean the $44,000 version with only large battery would also be produced in that timeframe -- or would it be later since Tesla is limiting configurations. The estimator asks us to choose one of three options and of course the $44,000 RWD doesn't fit any of the three.
