Since we still know very little regarding exacting details of the Tesla Model 3, and especially that of loaded pricing, speculation abounds. This has been fueled even further, as of late, due to the successful release of General Motor’s Chevrolet Bolt EV.
GM promised that Bolt pricing would fall under $30,000 with the federal rebate. The company held true to its forecast, with a savings of $5 to spare.
The base Bolt LT rings in at $36,620 + $875 DST, or $37,495 prior to the tax credit, making it $29,995 with the savings. There is only one other option in terms of trims: the Chevrolet Bolt Premier has an MSRP of $41,780.
The Tesla Model 3 is supposed to start at $35,000 prior to the rebate. However, Elon Musk himself has said that the average price will fall around $42,000.
Green Car Reports recently asked on Twitter, what people believe a fully-loaded Tesla Model 3 will cost. Below is what they found:
- 32 percent of respondents answered $55,000 or less
- 22 percent answered $55,000-$65,000
- 31 percent answered $65,000-$75,000
- 15 percent answered over $75,000
Do the math here and it shows that 68 percent of those participating believe that the fully-loaded Tesla Model 3 will cost more than $55,000.
Keep in mind that all of the Twitter and Facebook surveys, or many of the others that we find out there, have no control and can’t be looked at as fact. Heck … we don’t even know the specifics of the people that responded … and the sample size wasn’t all that large.
Regardless of the source or the details, it’s still interesting to hear what’s out there. What do you think a loaded Tesla Model 3 will cost? Let’s establish a little unofficial survey ourselves, and then later mock each other for bad guessing when the car (and pricing) does debut in a few months.
