This means that the car's hardware is exactly the same Standard Plus, but it's missing features like "onboard music streaming service, navigation with live traffic visualization, and heated seats".

"Given the popularity of the Standard Plus relative to the Standard, we have made the decision to simplify our production operations to better optimize cost, minimize complexity and streamline operations", Tesla says.

"Tesla is now facing a reckoning", said Jessica Caldwell, executive director of industry analysis at car-shopping researcher Edmunds.

While many vehicle companies offer leasing options on new cars Tesla's model bucks the trend in a very unusual way.

Standard customers can upgrade to Standard Plus at any time and Standard Plus customers can downgrade and receive a refund. However, it comes at a bit of a discount - on the Model 3 range, Autopilot used to be a $3,000 option, but its mandatory inclusion only adds $2,000 to the car's bottom line.

The Model 3 Standard Range Plus will lease for $504 a month, with $3,000 down for 36 months, with 10,000 miles per year There's a caveat: Lessees can't buy out their cars at the end of the lease. Going into a Tesla store and buying the Standard Range Model 3 now gets you a "software-limited version of the Standard Plus", according to the company's blog.

US electric vehicle (EV) maker Tesla Inc on Friday said it has started taking orders in China for a lower-priced version of its Model 3 auto, as it seeks to expand its lineup and boost sales in the world's biggest EV market.

The announcement reverses Tesla's announcement on February 28 that the $35,000 model could only be purchased online. Let's take a look at the base pricing in each European country, compared to the other Model 3 variants. Monthly payments vary from a little over $500 for the Model 3 Standard Range Plus to $889 for the Model 3 Performance. All Model 3 configurations are available, according to Tesla, and the price obviously varies with each. From 10,000 miles, Tesla can level up to 12,000 but no more than 15,000 miles on a yearly basis. Customers won't have the option to buy the auto at the end of the lease because the company plans to use the vehicles in a forthcoming Tesla ride-hailing network, according to the blog post.
