    I've entered pricing and features into TrueDelta's configurator to the extent they've either been released or can be inferred from Model S content to see how these compare to other cars.

    Initial conclusion: after adjusting for feature differences the Model 3 undercuts the Bolt EV by 1-2k:

    2017 Tesla Model 3 vs. 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Price Comparison at TrueDelta: Apples-to-apples pricing, specs, and feature data

    That said, if anyone knows whether or not the following features are standard, optional, or not available, please comment.

    --audio system speaker counts and wattage

    --synthetic suede door panels, std or Upgrade (in photos)

    --synthetic suede headliner (in photos?)

    --leather steering wheel (on S and X, unsure of 3)

    --standard seat adjustments other than manual fore-aft and recline

    --door sill trim plates

    --any sort of energy flow display

    --outside temperature display

    --mirror tilt down in reverse

    --illuminated visors (any Tesla?)

    --blind spot warning

    --lane departure warning

    --front and rear obstacle detection

    --interior air filter; none, basic, ionizing

    --rain-sensing wipers

    --rear heat ducts under the front seats (any Tesla?)

    --steering-linked adaptive headlights

    --auto-dimming headlights (part of Autopilot?)

    --rear reading lights

    --onboard charger kW rating? 10?

    Also would love clarification on:

    1. battery capacities: I've estimated 45-55 kWh and 65-75 kWh. Would love to have specific numbers rather than ranges.

    2. motor output: I've esimated 200 hp with the base pack based on the 235 hp estimated by Motor Trend for a Model 3 with the optional battery pack and the difference required to cut acceleration to 60 by half a second
