Telsa Lending Application - Order Deposit Not Deducted?

When I view the Tesla Lending application, I see the full price of the car $85,000.

I already paid the $2,500 deposit, so my question is: why isn't the application showing $82,500 for financing?

I am trying to calculate my down payment percentage. I figured I would pay 69.7% of 82,500 which is 57,502.5. But, if the lending application is showing 85,000, and I enter 69.7%, it equals 59,245.

I want to pay the 57,502.5 as the down payment. Should I enter 67.65% instead?

I'm just confused as to why the application shows 85,000 instead of 82,500.
