I don't know how many Series 3 buyers are coming from Washington, but based on the sheer number of Toyota Prius' Nisan leafs and Model S' I see on the road every day on my commute (not to mention the two tesla dealerships and multiple stores with EV charging stations in their parking lots) I'm expecting Washington state has to be one of their their top sales states now, much less when the model 3 comes out. Well, the local government recently made a change that changes the sales tax exception on EV's, limiting the exception to cars under $35,000. Right at the base price of a Model E..... Considering that tax in Seattle is about 10% this comes out to a $3,500 savings lost if you go over $35,000 Washington State Caps Electric-Car Incentives At $35K Price, Hitting Tesla, BMW I expect that many upgrades could be made post purchase (Tech package, etc) My question to my fellow Model E buyers in Washington is how many of you will try to save the tax by buying the base model and then upgrading it after the fact, vs buying a more loaded option from the factory and eating the tax right away? I'm on the fence about it myself - it'll depend on exactly what upgrades are available and of course my assumption that Tesla will start the base car at $34,995.
