How to ACTUALLY BUY the $35,000 Tesla Model 3! (Yes, it really does exist!!)Jun 10, 2021
Hello everyone, of course, as most of you know, we published our full review on the standard range of the Tesla Model 3 a few days ago and caused some confusion. You could say that many people were wondering about this standard range
model. And frankly, we didn't do a very good job of explaining how the standard range
modelworks because it's not on Tesla's website. So, a lot of people ask some additional questions. Some people made some accusations that we were just making things up completely. But no, in fact, this is the $35,000 standard range Tesla Model 3 and this video will tell you how you too can buy this model.
Now before we start here, I want to go ahead and show you these decals. So you know I'm not lying to you. This is not like that, we are not inventing it. I promise you here we are. This is the $35,000 Model 3 under the standard range right here. 35,000 is the base price, paint included, interior included, wheels plus destination of $1,200 for a grand total of 36,000 or $200, which is the price of this vehicle. That's not including fuel economy or anything like that. That's the price you pay for this car when you receive it. Now Mason already alluded to it.

how to actually buy the 35 000 tesla model 3 yes it really does exist...
But Tesla's website
actuallyhave the standard range and honestly when I started looking at the model 3 I thought they had discontinued the standard range as a short term or something. Because it's just not here anywhere they have it, there's no reference to anything like it. So what I
actuallyended up doing was calling Tesla on the phone. I don't
reallylike to talk. over the phone, but I did it for this And I called them and said, "Hey, do you know what's up with this $35,000 Tesla that I heard about a long time ago? Do you still make it?
How do I get it?" And basically what they told me was that it's not on the website. It's just a special request. And what that means is basically that when you go to buy your Model 3, the steps that we were told to do was to buy a standard range plus model, so when we first purchased the vehicle online, when you follow the steps to press next and all that, configure your standard plus range model. Then you will have that higher price. But don't worry, they write which one of the full review is, you know. There aren't many differences between the standard range plus and the standard range, just a few differences, so you chose them all. the same things you want for your standard range, but in the standard range plus configurator now.
Once you build your standard range plus model exactly how you would like your standard range model configured, you will simply go ahead and place the entire order. The process places your $100 deposit and then you must stop after that point. You just need to stop Do nothing It will send you various emails and things like that and witnesses and your website will walk you through different steps, different information that you will fill out and so on and you will be able to fill out some of that information But you can't get to the final shipment or whatever orders have already been placed.
But this is the final information that will ask you to accept a standard range price of forty-one thousand dollars. Which is not what you need to do because that will give you the standard range plus what you need. What you do is, after you do that, you call Tesla and what they will do is they will give you a VIN in your account and you will just have to read your VIN to the Tesla employee who will then mark your vehicle as a standard range model and this process, you know, it's
reallyquite simple to just call them and give them your event.
But it will take a few days to reflect it in your account. Therefore, it is important not to accept it until it is reflected in your account. like the standard range of $35,000 and then at that point you can accept the final paperwork to receive your model 3. Right and of course make sure you check every step of the way. What you are accepting in that way is everyone. on the same page about what you hope to get, for example, with ours. We mark it as standard range on the VIN. And the first time we changed it we got an email with the options list and it says standard range with autopilot three thousand dollars.
Well, three thousand dollars is almost the entire difference between the standard range and the standard range. Besides, that wasn't what we intended to do. We wanted to get the most basic one possible that actually cost $35,000. I'm sure not everyone watching this video also watched our full review video. You may be wondering what the difference is between the standard range and the standard plus model for such a substantial price. Hmm. Yes, around $5,000 It's not a lot, you'd actually be surprised and there's a reason Elon's idea originally was to make the standard range model actually different. There was talk of a manual cloth seat, so there are different changes here, there are things that are actually more significant.
However, what really happened is that, to simplify manufacturing, the standard range model and the standard range plus model are exactly the same, just with software limitations, so nothing in or out of this range car standard is really different. But they have programmed it. We can program it to become a standard range model from a standard range plus. So one of the things we have is we have 30 miles of shorter range. So the standard range plus has 250 miles of range. This standard range is limited by software to 220 miles, so 30 miles less and finally, the only other change is the autopilot, which is the special adaptive cruise control that can change lanes and things like that without interaction.
That is also removed. But as you can probably understand, that's it and that's not much change for $5,000. That's why we call this Tesla's best kept secret. There's a reason this isn't on the website that Tesla and Elon Musk feel obligated to have me meet the criteria they originally submitted saying I would make $35,000. Tesla Model 3, but at its core it's actually a $40,000 Tesla Model 3 that, if you're smart enough to figure it out, you can get for $35,000, so not a lot of people are talking about this surprisingly. Even on YouTube and the internet it was very difficult for us to determine if they still offer this model or not until we called and contacted Tesla.
That's why we wanted to make this video. Let them know I did it. spread the word yeah if you're looking for a $35,000 car i mean notice you can get a 4 cylinder camry competitions, so if we look at comparable German models, this one comes with a ton of standard equipment. but yeah, we're not going to rant anymore about all the benefits of that. Go see our complete repair. I want to know more about that. But you know, that concludes this video on how to get the thirty-five thousand dollar model. It would have been useful when I was looking for it.
