    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.

    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.

    rubbish

    Pure speculation

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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....
