It seems Tesla Model 3 prices may continue to fluctuate.
It comes as no surprise that Tesla is adjusting the price of its new mid-range Model 3 (LEMR). When the first announcement were made for the dual-motor all-wheel-drive Model 3 and the performance version, price adjustments were made a few times. Now, we see the new variant's price increase by $1,000. However, at the same time, the all-wheel-drive price was reduced by $1,000.

Costs $35k after federal & state tax rebates in California, but true cost of ownership is closer to $31k after gas savings
