Clean Technica Article: In Search Of The $35,000 Tesla Model 3

Just a little piece to try and add perspective to the notion of the 35K version of the car. :>

Technically, meaning in real dollars, even a $35K Model 3 will cost you more than $35K. You have to add the destination/documentation charge , sales tax and registration. So the out the door price was never going to be $35K.

Not every state gives rebate for getting an EV and the $7,500 tax credit is just that, a tax credit. Depending on one's tax situation one may not get to fully realize the $7500 credit.

Simply put unless one gets an actual rebate, you can't subtract the max allowable tax credit from the out the door price of the car, to get a net cost.

Way, way too many people think they can simply subtract $7,500 from $35K to come up with a net price of 27,500 for the car.
