That's a lot for SC. Defeats part of the price point.
Where the hell did you hear that number?!
The most I have seen being tossed around was $2000.
Yeah, Where did that number come from?
tweet post on yahoo investment board
7k is a lot but $1500 is not!
Yahoo. Yeah, OK. Moving right along......
You would struggle to find less credible information on the Internet, than on a Yahoo Message Board. It's pretty much the Gawker / National Enquirer version of financial information.
the only way I can see a number as big as $7K is if you're getting 3 battery sizes...and you happen to choose the largest size. But then that's misleading in the SC discussion, because that $7K is for the battery AND SC access.
Unless I see it on a Tesla Motors Letterhead or on a pricing/order sheet, the $7K for Supercharging alone is RUBBISH.
Now, if it is BUNDLED with several worthwhile Options, maybe.
Supercharging, 75 kWh battery, and dual motors...ok, I can see $7000.
All that for only $7K?
Shut up and take my money!!! lol
The Model 3 is going to have to be Tesla's profit maker in order for the company to stay afloat. The Model S subsidized the cost of the Model 3's development, not the cost of the car. Supercharging is likely going to cost more than it did as an option with the previous S Models to fund the cost of the power and new stations. The main competitors of the Model 3, the Leaf and Volt/Bolt are not going to have cross country capabilities, so those who want it with the Model 3 are going to have to pay up.
You're out of your mind
Err, the target market (per Elon) for a 3 won't pay 7K for supercharging (to be clear, I'm not saying that you are claiming this is accurate). Heck many won't even pay $2K for it.
There are a lot of people who don't pay 7K for gas over 5-8 years. There are also a lot of people who won't be able to charge at their residence.
In my opinion, if you really want to drive BEV adoption supercharging needs to be included.
The 3 won't be a success if only the 1-2%ers buy it. If this were true, the extra cash spent to *quickly* build more/ramp up production facilities will be largely wasted.
I hope they charge $7k, the supercharger network is already saturated.
Still works for me. Not much more though.
Being on the East Coast, I'm going to assume you've heard anecdotal evidence of Supercharger overcrowding from the West Coast.
I too live in the Boston area, and can tell you....the East Coast has not reached a saturation point with SC's yet.
This may be true but if it is detrimental to the long term sustainability (is that a word) of the network and the company then something has to give...at least for now.
$7000 is Ludicrous. Who can kill this thread?
Well... if you were a 40 owner and wanted supercharging it was $12k... but you did get another 20kWh too. Possible but unlikely that there will be an entry model similar to those early 40s....
