Tesla opens Model 3 orders to more people and trims prices

If you're in line for a Model 3 then we have good news. The company has announced that it's opening pre-orders to all reservation holders in the US and Canada, now that it's able to produce more cars (apparently that tent manufacturing line is helping). Better yet, the pricing has improved, with certain options (like dual-motor AWD) getting cheaper, as well as lower starting prices for options like the Performance package, now that many of the features in it are optional. All of this points to the company's improved production process, whi ch would help with the price cuts and make it easier to build different configurations.

While a $35,000 Model 3 still has not appeared, the current base model with Long Range 310-mile battery is available for $49,000. The price to add a second motor and AWD (plus 0 - 60 MPH in 4.5 seconds) is now $4,000 extra instead of $5,000 and starts at $53,000. According to Electrek there are also updated color options available in the online design studio, however, estimates for a cheaper "standard" battery has changed to 6 - 9 months out.

If that's not fast enough, a Performance model that accelerates to 60 MPH in 3.5 seconds can be had for $64,000. Adding the white interior seen on the initial top-of-the-line $78,000 Performance model is an extra $1,500 now, and a Performance Upgrades package that brings in features like its 155 MPH top speed, 20-inch rims, carbon fiber spoiler, aluminum pedals, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and red performance brake calipers adds another $5,000.

Oh, and if you already ordered your car? The new prices will be applied retroactively.
