Tesla Model 3 Mid Range Deliveries Pushed Up To Get Full Tax Credit
Tesla is urging customers to buy the Model 3 right now to get the full $7,500 federal tax credit.
The end of the year is coming fast and Tesla is well aware that this means a reduction of the federal tax credit is coming. Hence, the carmaker is urging their would-be customers to purchase the new mid-range Model 3 sedan right away, if eligible for the full $7,500 federal tax credit.
Released earlier this month, the Model 3 with a mid-range battery pack starts at $46,000 and comes with 260 miles of range.
The information about Tesla pushing for more Model 3 sales came through an e-mail sent to some reservation holders earlier this week. While sales tactics like these aren’t usually the go-to way of pushing sales with most legacy carmakers, with Tesla, it makes sense as the carmaker is up against some rather never before seen odds in the car industry.
We recently introduced a more affordable Model 3 Mid Range Battery option for $34,200 after federal tax credit and gas savings.* As a reminder, the full Federal Tax Credit of $7,500 ends after December 31, 2018.
Current delivery timelines are 4 weeks for the west coast, 6 weeks for central and 8 weeks for the east coast. For delivery under 4 weeks, you can pick up your car directly from our Fremont factory.

*Taxes and fees not included. Price includes savings of a $7,500 Federal Tax Credit and estimated gas savings of $4,300 over 6 years. Depending on where you live, you can save even more with local incentives.
Here are the delivery timelines for the new version of the Model 3 from the e-mail:
- under 4 weeks for direct pick up
- 4 weeks west coast
- 6 weeks central
- 8 weeks east coast
If you are a reservation holder and you do have the available funds, opting in to purchase a Model 3 right away seems like a prudent decision. Otherwise, it’ll cost you more since the tax credit drops by half next year.
