    Try out my new Cost tool with prices mentioned on employee configurators. Will help you estimate the cost of your future Model 3.

    Your math on the partial tax credit is incorrect, half of $7500 is $3750. Otherwise thanks for putting the site together!

    Destination & doc fee is $1000 according to screenshots of the configurator. ($1200 is for S/X)

    You have the delivery charge set at $1200, it's actually $1000 for the model 3. You should also add for local additional rebates. In Oregon there's a $2500 rebate and I know at least Colorado and California have one too ($4000 and $2500?)

    Thanks. I've updated delivery fee to $1000. Going to add a line where one can add in their local tax rebate information. Too complex to otherwise do this. Thanks for the ideas though!

    Just also added an approximate Monthly Payment factoring in a 2% Interest rate.

    You may also want to add in a field for sales tax, which I believe is applied to the full value of the car regardless of federal or state tax credits.

    Maybe you should have the $1000 deposit above the financing part. Have it as a toggle at the bottom as part of the total. So they can see a what's owed vs what's paid.

    You have the tax credit deducted from the total pre financing. That's actuality incorrect as the credit comes after you setup the loan and start making payments. You should have the financing part start with the total before the credit, then put in a down payment part before the months.

    Are they not going to let others pick up the car at the factory? It's as close as the closest store, then they don't have to charge me destination and doc fees

    I agree the tax credit is after and shouldn't influence the monthly payment. I'll fix that but not sure I'll re-order the other parts. This website editing is actually pretty complicated and changes aren't easy. Also the down payment is always the same amount that Tesla dictates so I think I'll leave that part.

    They charge even those who pick up at the factory a delivery charge. Do a few searches here and you will confirm this. I asked myself and was told this by a Tesla Sales Specialist as I thought it would be a fun trip home.

    Sure thing. Just updated so now the loan payment is based on the value before rebates. Thanks for catching this.

    Might want to add a trade-in field - a lot of states allow you to take of the value of a trade-in off before calculating sales tax.
