I am model 3 reservation holder and a huge Tesla/Elon fan [boy]. I reserved my spot on day 1. I care about the environment and try to do whatever little I can in my own limited capacity and sphere of influence. I received an email to configure my model 3 a while back. I couldn't configure it because: - The vehicle options that I can afford were not available or presented to me. - There was probably no valid technical reason to justify prioritizing the more expensive model 3 options over the cheaper options. -- Model 3 AWD Performance version is more complicated to Engineer/manufacture than Model 3 AWD. -- Similarly Model 3 AWD version is more complicated to make than Model 3 RWD. - Therefore simple logic tells me that it should be easier and faster to make something simple than it is to manufacture something complicated. - Why didn't Tesla simply start manufacturing what logic and Engineering 101 say will be easier to make ? They say because the more expensive trims are more profitable. Fine, but: You own a Pizza store. You are a visionary. Your objective is to run an environmentally responsible business and feed as many of the masses as possible. -- If you have the choice of making Pizzas with a single topping costs that $1 and can be made in 10 minutes. And 10 people potentially can easily afford this single topping Pizza. -- If you also have the choice of producing another Pizza with 10 different toppings, which you can sell for $10 and can be made in 15 minutes. However only 2 people can afford it this. -- Now if the Pizza store says their objective is to feed as many of the masses as possible and run a business - which of the Pizza options would you concentrate on manufacturing given your stated objective ? In conclusion - if Tesla had focused manufacturing smarts and time in releasing more of the affordable vehicles that MOST people wanted and hoped for - lots more folks would have placed their order and not be so impacted by whatever new imbecilic rules/changes any new Government (PC, Doug Ford etc) decides to enact.
